Super Fly! Aug 22, 0.99!

Super Fly is going through the review process right now. This game evolved out of a project that my son did using XNA on the xbox indie marketplace. Its completely home-made except for some excellent music and sounds which were created by Vince Webb who we met on this forum.

The game is a survival "combat" game where you're a fly battling other insects and creatures that want to do you in! You collect coins as you play and you can spend the coins to purchase equipment and upgrades. It has openfeint leaderboards and achievements built in. There are also powerups that randomly spawn as you're playing such as the fly's favorite food which temporarily turns him into the invincible Super Fly!

We've set up the game to be easily expandable so send us your ideas for the first update!

Thanks!

It was a blast working on this. My playtesters/kids gave came up with all kinds of funny ideas like giving players bonus coins at the end of the game based on how many brains you splattered and of course the "eat 3 poops and turn into the invincible muscle-bound superfly"!

Looks awesome. I might keep my $2.39 USD for this and Monster Dash instead of NFL 2011.
