Lite (free) Catch Me! If You Can iPhone& iPod Touch Game

Hi everyone!

Wasn't it more fun when you used to unlock content by actually playing a game instead of paying for it? funny how the 2 words are similar

Well, in "Catch Me! If You Can" you get new content (free!) by sending in-game collected gold to the "Vault". Everyone contributes so it's both a cooperative and competitive activity. Check out the "Band Of Thieves" screenshot I took this morning. The game was out only yesterday and players have already accumulated 30K+ gold. Can you reach 1 000 000 ???

Check out the trailer:

The game itself is a Pac-Man style Maze Chase Game. It's quite addictive!

Here's the itunes link for the free Lite version:

http://itunes.apple.com/app/catchme-if-you-can-free/id348650656?mt=8

You get 3 levels in the Lite version. You can also join the Band Of Thieves!

You can also check out the facebook page for updates about new unlock targets: http://www.facebook.com/#/pages/Catc...n/271074466084

I'd like to know what you think of the game!

Happy thieving!

EDIT: By the way I'm the developer of the game! Don't ban me lol

Thanks for the heads up on the lite. I've been wanting to check this game out.

Hey RiverOnFire, thanks to you for the heads up! Can't believe I posted the wronk link

I replaced the link in my orginal post. This will take you to the free version now!

Sorry for the mistake! (this is my first experience with the app store)

I want everyone to try out the game and to start sending gold to the Band of Thieves' Vault.

We're nearing 40 000 gold! I really want you guys t reach 1 000 000 so I can unlock the new Thief Challenge!

Hi Odd1.

Well, As I thought I would, I like the game and it's concept. Good graphics, gameplay etc... My only issue is the control scheme. Have you considered swipe? Also since even you can see the similarities to Pac-Man, how about having all of Pac-Man's control options? I'm going to give it more time before I decide if the controls prevent me from purchasing the full version or not.

Sorry, I'm usually not one to point out the faults but I think this game has good potential.

Hopefully more TA members will try and give you feedback.

Good luck to you!

Still trying to get used to the control pad being on the other side than what I am used to. Otherwise good fun.

Yup got that which makes the whole control scheme a little backwards for me!

Just got our review up of the full game

The controls are backwards but man it's one heck of a game.

Thanks for the review!

So it seems at least 2 persons don't like the control pad being to the right.

I'm seriously thinking about adding an option so you can switch the control pad to the left. Who would like this option?

By the way, upwards of 100 000 gold has been gathered so far! Not bad at all!!! I hope even more people start contributing to unlock the new stuff!

I still am having major issues with the controller regardless of which side. Any chance you could put in an option for swipe controls? 90% of the time I'm caught or unable to catch a thief do to my thumb slipping out of position and not having anyway to recover fast enough for my minor fark up.
