Air Hockey Deluxe

A lot of spit and polish went into this game as I was going for the premium air hockey experience. See below for the short and sweet details. I also have it all ready for the iPad (multiplayer games will also work between iphone vs ipad over bluetooth or wifi).

Looks Good

Looking at the screenshots, looks like it could be one of the best so far. Played a lot of the other one. Just wondering, will it have 2 player mode on 1 idevice? Just to make a suggestion, might want to promote on freeappaday.com. well either way, I'm buying it.

Note: You might want to add a career mode or something that seperates it from the crowd of airhockey games. Maybe a shop for special pucks? Well, I know hard it is to implement suggestions like this, but maybe you could work toward it on a update.

Asking devs for codes is against the rules.

Absolutely! In the game it's called Shared Screen in the Multiplayer menu of the game.

I agree, that is something I could definitely put in as an update.

The other AH games I've tried have glitchy gameplay, run at bad a bad FPS, run at different speeds on different devices, dumb AI, have poor or no multi-player, allow only a single puck, etc..

Aside from remedying those issues this game also has a very strong single player element with all the game modes. The AI is also very good (it takes into account puck trajectories + speed which makes for some crazy air hockey games with multiple pucks on the harder levels)

If you liked the other AH games I'm sure you'll love this one

Will the crazy huge amount of pucks result in glitches? Yeah, and career mode would help make it more indepth, as opposed to every single other AH game, which are just casual. A shop where you can buy more pucks, paddles, different shape tables, etc. would also separate it. Well good luck on having it succeed. And is this your first game? and how much will it cost?

How about adding online play ? That would make it really stand out.

This game is on the app store right now!

I bought and I must say, out of all of the air hockey games I have, this is the best.

It is VERY reminiscent of one that came out last year with 3 different tables. in fact, it resembles it a lot.

This one is better though.

Question for the developer: Do you have plans to add more tables in the future?
(8 tables is the best I have seen, but I am greedy - especially after Motion X included almost 50 sets of Dice that look SO different from one another)

Please keep the tables coming!!!


Great job, though.
I like this better than my other two favorites: Steampunk and Glow Hockey 2.

That's a compliment, because I love those games.

Tables, Tables, Tables!!!

Maybe even one day venues would be nice as well (360 degree environments!)
