Kapowie, an iPhone app (game) by Bjango

Any impressions on Kapowie yet?

http://bjango.com/apps/kapowie/

I use Consume and iStat but this looks like their first big effort into the game arena. Besides Matches.

Here is a trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QFeDW3N2Aww

Thanks CHANibus!

It's been an interesting game to develop, especially because this is the first time we've attempted anything like it (we have quite a few other games on the way too). I really hope everyone likes Kapowie.

rich_952000: I just bought Stair Dismount... looks great.

Kapowie has both local and global leaderboards. 2 million is a great score. 3 million is possible, but might require a bit of practice.

I've scored 3 million during testing... and I'm not one of those freaks that can get 1000+ on Flight Control (hats off to anyone who's that good!).

Just picked up this game and it's definitely a fun casual pick up and play.

BUT, The leaderboards and quite plain. It would be MUCH nicer to use openfeint, Agon...etc

Also the leaderboards do not show your rank if you are not in the top 100 and the same player can have multiple scores on the leaderboard. I feel that it's better to include only the top score of each player as most leaderboards do now.

Nice game but it would be great to have nicer leaderboards to match the quality of your game. They feel like an afterthought now. Any chance for an update for the leaderboards ?

Thanks for the comments. We'll definitely look at improving the global leaderboard in a future version.

Edit: We just made a change to the global leaderboard... each player only has their best score listed, giving more people a chance to rank.
