Elusive Ninja: The Shadowy Thief - coming soon! Devblog link inside!

(mods: I have a similar thread in the iPhone game section but I'm releasing an HD version of the game on iPad so I hope it's okay to have a thread about it in this section as well!)

I've been documenting the progress of my game Elusive Ninja: The Shadowy Thief over at Bulletproof Outlaws. Derek of Ravenous Games (who made the epic League of Evil for the iPhone) did the programming and we're in the home-stretch of having the game done! I'm doing the final gameplay tweaking and polishing up some animations and I'm hoping to submit it to Apple early next week.

I update the blog on a regular basis with behind-the-scenes development stuff (you can follow the project from Day 1 if you have a ton of free time to read my blabbing haha)

Updated to add the App Store link for the iPhone version! The HD version for iPads will be a little delayed because of E3!

Hey everyone! We finally finished Elusive Ninja! Check it out:


App Store link: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/elusive-ninja-the-shadowy/id435406732?mt=8&ls=1

I'm about to hop my flight to LA for E3, Elusive Ninja is on sale for $0.99 as a pre-E3 promotion so grab it today for cheap! Hope you guys dig it, it's my first iPhone game and I tried to cram a lot of polish into it!

Here are some screenshots from the current Build:








This is our first game and I'm psyched to be almost ready to submit it to Apple and get it up on the App Store!

Gameplay's all tweaked, hoping to be able to submit to Apple tonight or early tomorrow!

Anyone have an iPad 2 and want to test Elusive Ninja out to make sure it runs nice on it?

Just wanted to take the chance, to tell you how much I enjoy reading through all of your blog entries lately.
I stumbled over this ninja picture ever so often and thought "hey that looks mighty cool" - but seeing these blog postings where you offer such an amazing insight to your way of developing is so motivating and interesting to follow.

I really hope all this hard work and clever thinking gets you the well deserved sales !
Congrats on this awesome game you have there !

Thanks for the support! I love to hear that people are enjoying all the development write-up I do, there are times where it's like "I wonder if this is even worth it, is anyone interestd in my writing about this??" haha

Finally finished the official Elusive Ninja trailer! Hope you guys like it:


The app is official In Review as of when I woke up today haha As always come check out the development blog at: http://www.bulletproofoutlaws.com/

The HD version for iPad is going to be delayed by a few weeks because I have to look into some issues that are popping up and snag myself an iPad 2 and everything. I'm about to head to E3 so when I get back in a week or so I'll start taking a look at fixing the last bugs!

Probably won't make a new trailer though, thus my posting this one.
