MAJOR Rolly update submited

Hey guys; thought I would make a thread on a MAJOR Rolly ($0.99) update that was submitted to Apple. I'm especially happy about this one since I did the new visuals for this version. What's new?

-MAJOR Bug Fixes
-fixed glitch where user could jump out of level into infinite blue-ness
-Bullets are more responsive
-Jump on level 10 is normalized and now payable
-background texture optimization
-made level over buttons bigger
-new backgrounds!
-new icon!
-4 new levels; bringing it up to 15 levels
-added "About" page
-New loading message
-Save system

and many more enhancements towards stability, playability and over user experience.

I designed the new backgrounds for this version; as well as the new icon. Unfortunately I can't post either. I agreed to those rules. But this is a major update. And honestly; I think it's the most stable version of Rolly. So it's all up to Apple now. I highly recommend the app. It's lots of fun!! Can't wait for you guys to see the update.

Here is a video of an earlier version; THOSE ARE NOT MY BACKGROUNDS! They are some a previous version had but they were blurry.

Update: A lite version has been released. See thread.

Woop Woop!

I really love the game, but found it to be a little hard to play with the minor bugs. I'm really looking forward to the update, and the new icon! I love icons.

believe me the bugs r resolved in this version; and i think the icon looks pretty good; but i don't like making icons much. i like working in BIGGER spaces; not in small spaces.

look at the app description? it's really worth $1 but remember the update is not out yet. u navigate the ball though a 3d world (made in unity) but u must watch out since it's a puzzle game. you can see a video here BUT THESE ARE NOT MY BACKGROUNDS!!! these are some old ones that were blurry. but here's the video. it's a total of 15 levels.

It's a game inspired from Little Big Planet, watered down, but still fun to run through; worth the $0.99.

Web Designer & Developer since 1999.

Games I highly recommend: CozyQuest, Gemmed, Jabeh, Blue Defense, Blue Attack, geoDefense, Hospital Havoc
