Axe in Face - Defense of the Daffodils. Now free to download, own and play :)

Hi guys

I'm the developer of Axe in Face.

Thanks for the kind words. I'm currently struggling to get the word out about Axe in Face. So it is always nice to find threads like this

I've got some feedback that my screens on the App Store seems dull and does not capture the essence of the game. I've reworked the screens now and are hoping for more downloads.

Actually I've already got two great reviews, and I hope more is coming

The two reviews can be found here:

Looks very good! Are there any global leaderboards? If not are there plans to add?

Well, since no one else decided to pick this up, I took the offensive. Unfortunately all that I've come to see from this game is crashing when trying to start level 1. I'll continue to try to play the game and edit this post when I succeed in doing so.

Upcoming Games: CJS2, Racing Apex, High Strangeness, Dino Run, Super Feed Me, Mimeo and the Kleptopus King, Loot, Run Run Dash, Pogo Rampage, Burrito Bison, Star Saver, Pocket Cars, Rock Rider, THEM, Prince of Europa, Epic Dive, One Tap Hero

Thanks for your question, lingmongjai.

Unfortunately there are currently no support for global leaderboards. However, there will definitely be support for Game Center in an update in near future. This is going to require some rework of the score system in the game. At the moment the highscore is likely to be the same for multiple players This does not mean that it isn't worth playing the game right now, as it requires lots of practice to master the axe and build up combos. The game already has build-in offline Trophies, that are going to be linked to Game Center in a later update. Maybe I should consider renaming Trophies to Achievements

I'm sorry to hear that, doodlejumper. I've just released an update (1.0.1) dealing with the issue of the game crashing on some devices. Are you playing on an iPhone 3GS?
Closing all other applications in the task bar often helps. Otherwise, try to restart the iPhone.

Please let me know if this does not help, and I will look into it right away.

EDIT: I'm new to this forum, I've just discovered that your device is described just bellow your name. Try restarting the device then.
