"Air Supply - 1bit Run" - Another run 'n' gun game! YAY! With a twist! :D

Hello you lovely peeps! Hope you're all well.

I haven't slept for two days!

Wibble!

Anyway, my new game got submitted to Apple today, for iPod and iPhone!

Hurrah!

It's a 1bit run 'n' gun game we like to call 'Air Supply'

Here's a vid for you all!


Youtube link | Pop Up



And a little blurb to go with it!

*** Your AIR is running out! ***

Ambushed on a standard trade journey between Lave and Diso, Spaceman Sam is shot down by pirates!

Now, stranded on an alien Moon, Sam must run for his life, avoiding meteorites, fearsome UFOs and enemies such as robots, aliens, and Space Monkey Zombie Pirate Cyborgs(!), hoping in vain to stay alive long enough to be rescued!


Features:

*Pure awesome gameplay: Run, jump, shoot, collect!
*Gorgeous Retina Display 1bit graphics in glorious black and white!
*Cosmic 1bit music by Mr. Beep, made using a ZX Spectrum! Six tracks to unlock!
*Grab powerups! Slow down your speed, grab a full tank of air, or protect yourself with shields!
*Gain ranks based on kills - from 'Harmless' to the coveted title of 'Elite'.
*Unlock everything! Play the game to unlock new characters, backgrounds, enemies, music and even colour!
*Special Guest appearances
*15 Achievements to attain!
*Fully iOS4 compatible
*More unlocks coming in updates!
*Amazingly addictive - just ask our testers!


**How long will you last before your Air Supply runs out???**


Well, I hope some of you find it interesting! I'm off out to celebrate, and will catch up later, and post some screenshots tomorrow I guess!

Have a great Saturday, and thanks for looking!

Cheers man, that's appreciated!

Looking at your profile though, you have a second gen iphone? The game *will* work with that, no problem, but the load times are a little excessive on that model

Just being honest!

If you have an iPad, we're planning a version for that. And we're also planning a version for the Mac, if all goes well!

Like I said - it's still perfectly playable on a 2G - I have no issues selling it for lower spec devices - but it works a lot better in general on later models!

Cheers!

It's a 2g ipod, not phone, and there's really nothing I can do about it.

I think I played nearly *every* runner out there - known and unknown! I find now when I play other ones that I always try and double jump (which is the system I have in Air Supply).

So believe me, I know what you mean about having your fill of endless runners! We just hope that the music, the style of the game, the focus on unlocks, and that it's damn addictive will help differentiate it from the rest! (though I find runners addictive in and of themselves - even the bad ones! Crazy!)

@nesio - thanks!

Here are some screenshots for you, as promised!












Hope you like them!

Cheers,
