Barcode Battler inspired iPhone game "Warcode", beta testers wanted!

Ladies and gentlemen! We're indie iOS developers Φnders et Gonas, working on a new title inspired by the 1991 classic gaming machine "Barcode Battler" called Warcode. If you're not familiar with this amazing device check out these videos on youtube:

Our game works in a similar fashion, you scan barcodes with the iPhone camera (camera with auto-focus required, so 3GS or iPhone4) which turns into warriors or equipment. These can be used in the single player campaign or for challenging your friends to multiplayer matches on Game Center to see who has collected the best barcodes!

We have a beta program up on TestFlight, just sign up if you're interested in testing it out Here is the link:

Happy warcoding!

Awesome It registered your device's unique ID so I can include it in the next beta build, which will be in a few hours. When it's ready you'll get an e-mail and you can install the beta wirelessly onto your phone from a link in the mail!

The TestFlight system is pretty new but more developers are using it, if anybody is having issues with it their help section is at http://support.testflightapp.com/

You mean more developers are using it for beta testing? What if I wanna beta test other games? I want to be an official beta tester.

Yes, it's a tool for developers to do beta testing programs. If you want to beta test other developers' games, and they use the TestFlight tool too, you can reuse your profile there and get their beta versions the same way. There's no way to sign up for all different developers betas at once, you will need to apply for each one through links they give out (e.g. on this forum.)

• Nice retina display support.
• I've tested several barcodes and it's cool it identifies each barcodes and warns you for duplicates.
• This will be fun if more players play in game center.

Bugs I found so far:
Game crashes after every fight.

I still own the original Barcode Battler handheld! It's great, so I can't wait to try this.

Hey thanks for the feedback all Mewko you are also on iOS 4.1 right? The crash after fight bug seems to only happen on that version. Will look into it.
