Default AlephOne (Marathon, Marathon Durandal, Marathon Infinity) - Beta testers wanted

somewhere in the heavens...they are waiting


So begins the first chapter in the classic Mac first person shooter, Marathon. Come join the beta test of AlephOne, the Open Source port of the Marathon trilogy (iPad only). Have a look at the screen shots below.

Features:
  • all levels from Marathon, Durandal, Infinity
  • HD graphics
  • smooth game play experience
  • 9 unique weapons, fists, double shotguns, and the devastating SPNKR-X18 rocket launcher!
  • infinite saved games, film recording

Development is nearing completion, and we are looking for 10-20 beta testers. Selected beta testers will be given access to the three episodes and asked to provide general feedback, and answer specific questions about the games. The ten testers giving the best feedback will receive promo codes for a free copy of the episode of their choice when the games are released. Beta testers should send an email to vidmaster@alephonesdg.com or pm with the following information:
  • first person shooter experience on iOS (noob, so-so, I pwn)
  • number of episodes you wish to test (Marathon, Durandal, Infinity)
  • iPad UUID (directions here)

Welcome to the revolution...

jazz up the ui a bit and this might be worth it. nostalgia alone isn't good enough for marathon. Make it a unique experience for the ipad.

If the iPad version does well, I'd port it to the iPhone. Screen real estate is a bit cramped, but I think it could be done.

Cheers

I was hoping for Feb 26, but my beta testers uncovered a nasty audio bug. Apparently, it's a problem for a lot of developers/games in 4.2... So it will have to wait until this can be fixed.
