Default Tractor Beam 1.1 Updated! (New Timed Run Mode / Retro Arcade)


Youtube link | Pop Up


Updated to 1.1! New Timed Run Mode where it's speed that counts.
You have 90 seconds, plus ten seconds for each 25000 points you earn.

Download: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tractor-beam/id352841522?mt=8

Description:
Your engines are down. Use your tractor beams to move.

Tractor beam is a powerfully simple and addictive arcade game inspired by Asteroids. Unarmed and out of fuel, to survive you must slingshot your ship through an asteroid field using only your tractor beam. But the beam will also send the asteroids on a collision course with your ship, making for a unique challenge as you press onward to rack up points.

Tractor Beam can be played in either portrait or landscape orientation, and multi-touch gameplay allows for more than one beam and complex strategies. The procedurally generated background music is never the same twice, or choose to listen to your own music from within the iPod application.

- Classic arcade look and feel
- Multi-touch gameplay
- Three levels of difficulty
- Dynamic music is created on-the-fly
- Allows for music from iPod application

Yeah, same here. I still think it's cool, though. Need to put in some more practice time.

Has the developer mentioned anything about online leaderboards? Because that would be good.

Yep it's planned, we're learning toward a custom implementation (over OpenFeint) to keep the look of the game. If we went in that direction, what are the most important aspects of OF you guys would like to see in there?

I like the retro art and type, but man, it looks impossibly difficult.

I love the retro Asteroids look. I might drop a buck on this and see if I like it...

Online leadereboards are a must for me to buy. This game looks fun, but without the online competition I will not pick it up.

By the way, the current version is coming to iPad on Saturday as a universal app. Current users won't have to pay a thing for it.
