Space shooting game - Looking for beta testers!

Hey everyone!!

I've been working on my second game, which is now nearing completion… hopefully before christmas!! So I would like to get a small group of beta testers to give some feedback and look for bugs etc.

Now I just want to say, I've been through this with my first game, and only one of my beta testers gave really good feedback for each build of the game, and that was out of the 5 people that I got. So this time, if you are interested in helping out, then please only do so if you have the time to give good feedback, as if you don't then you will soon be kicked out of the group and replaced! (I don't mean to be harsh, but I don't appreciate people choosing to be a tester just to play the game, and not give any feedback!)

Ok so now about the game:
At the very basics, its a space shooter, but with a different method of control. Its free-roaming, so you can go where you want, in any direction (up to the level limits) and kill the enemies in whichever order you want to. It will have a number of different upgrades to purchase, and pickups to find and use within the game.
I'm planning to create 30 levels for the main campaign, as well as adding two more game modes if I can, although at this point, that isn't confirmed. So it still has a couple weeks to go, but i wanted to get started with the testing early so I have enough time for it. It also has other features which will hopefully give it more replay value, but I'll leave that for you to find out if you choose to be a tester.

What I need is people with different models, so hopefully what I want is some of the following:
Iphone 4g
Iphone 3G
ipod touch 4g
ipod touch 2g

Also different software versions over and including 3.0 would be good too.

Also to those who will be beta testing, any ideas for new weapons or upgrades is always welcome.

It will also use open feint, although this isn't implemented yet, as I'm not sure about the name of the game. Right now its called 'Gravity Shift', but I need to look into that more to make sure I can actually use it!

So now just let me know if you're interested, including the model and software version of your ipod/iphone, and what experience you have beta testing, if any. Also if you've tested other games from developers who are on these forums, then please say so if you can, as that may help! - and please post back here if you don't mind, as its easier to look through than my private messages!

I hope to hear back from anyone soon! I look forward to getting started!

Hi,

I have an Iphone 3gs IOS 4.1 jailbroken. I'm experienced beta tester and tested games such as: Shanghai Mahjong, Sentinel 3, Queens Crown, Save Toshi!, Fluorama, and Dino Dash. I love space games and I promise to help improve this game.

Thanks
