Promo codes!

@Elimin8 It's a long story. Several have talked about it. It's easy to connect devices using Game Center, but extremely difficult to make the gameplay awesome on a game that moves this fast. Things happen in a game like this faster than in a FPS. For the internet games, network latency is too slow - even over wifi. None of the "major" hockey games have pulled this off...likely because no one wants to release something without outstanding game play.

Alright everyone, promo codes! Please let the thread know if you redeem one of these.

Thank you, I took JL393FK77PWJ.

I'm pretty sure others will ask, but why another (3 now) stand alone app rather than adding the Christmas theme as an update? As far as I can tell the theme is the only difference from your other hockey games.

Great question. It's actually completely separate code from Air Hockey - the levels are called the same names, but the AI is different, the physics are different - every line of code is different. To get the Christmas themes right, I couldn't use Air Hockey as a base. This one does share some code with Doodle Hockey (the menu structure, for example), but the AI is still an evolution on that game...plus the particle effects are completely rewritten along with quite a few things under the hood.

Besides that, with all the new HD graphics & sounds in this one, there was no way to give this much Christmas awesomeness & stay under the iPhone's 3G 20MB app download limit.

Thanks - enjoy it!
