Hi guys,

It's pleasure for me to introduce you our new gaming title PainBall. What's PainBall about? It's a remake of our original Nukeball game, which was featured by Apple last year in What's Hot category and reached several thousands of downloads.

PainBall is all about fast and dynamic action. Target of the game is to destroy your opponent. This can be accomplished in two ways: Destroying him with your shots or with the PainBall. This task is not easy, because both players are protected by laser shield at the beginning of each match. To defeat your opponent, you need to be fast and concentrated. Will you become the best PainBaller ever?

PainBall game features:
-Fast and dynamic action gameplay
-Three AI difficulty levels
-Sophisticated scoring system
-Online leaderboard
-Bluetooth Multiplayer
-Dark theme graphics

Missed the codes.

Any reason why you made this a new game instead of an upgrade from NukeBall/NukeBall BT?

What are the differences in the gameplay?

NukeBall BT is one of the few good 2-player simultaneous games that stays on my iPhone. Any chance of being able to switch to the original graphics set? IMHO going by the screenshots, I liked those better.

drelbs: Situation is that Nukeball titles were originally sold by my ex-collegue Lubos Kulisek. He quit iphone development and did't renew his developer account. That's why games were removed from sale. I wanted to bring Nukeball back, but users who already bought Nukeball from Lubos Kulisek must buy the game again. That's why I decided to make some changes, so as the users get something new for their dollar.

drelbs, I will send you promo over PM.

Here is some more promo codes for the rest of you:

Thanks for the explanation (and the promo code! )

I've seen a few apps go through this (Prarie Chute & Vector Tanks come to mind...)

This is definitely a title to keep on hand if you want a 2-player, simultaneous-play title (along with Orbital, BattleBlasters and Bombardiers Guild! )
