Whack A Foe - Take a picture of your foe and give him hell

Hi,

I wanted to give you a short introduction to our new iPhone game "Whack A Foe". Here you can take a photo (or choose from image gallery) of a person you don't like (teacher, politician, class mate, your boss, your ex, etc...) and give him/her hell!

Here are some brand new screenshots of the upcoming game:

The AppStore-Icon:


Hitting your foe:


Hammered down:


Manage your friends and foes within a gallery:


Extract the face out of any photo or image from your gallery:


The main screen:


There are different game modes planned:

1st play against your foes. Earn points when hitting them in time. The game gets faster and faster with each level. You can define many different foes that arise randomly

2nd game mode: beside foes, you can also define some friends. The game shows up friends and foes randomly, when hitting a friend you loose points, hitting a foe you earn points, until you reach the next level.

The game gets faster and faster, when you proceed, try to get as much points as possible.

The game supports the retina display of the iPhone 4, so you get nice graphics.

There will also be a support for online-scoring and game center integration, to compete with others all over the world and to see how good you have performed.

I hope you like it!

What do you think? What other ideas do you have?

The release is planned for late summer 2011

Hi guys,

the game is nearly finished, so I can invite you to a beta test. If you are interested in getting your hands on, please let me know and send me your UDID of your i-Device, so I can make a build for you to test.

I am really excited to hear about your impression.

Many greetings

Oliver

Whack A Foe is about to be released

Hello,

good news, we have finished programming on Whack A Foe and now about to release it. We are still doing some tests and will then upload the build to Apple.

My english is not that good, for creating a real exciting text for the App-Store. Is there anybody who wants to help me, to create a cool and exciting text? That would be really great!

Here are the features of the game:

- Create your individual game: use any photo of a person from your camera or photo gallery and take him/her into the game. You can also record an individual sound for each person and pitch it up or down (sounds really funny)
- Two game modes: Playing only with foes, or play with friends and foes. Friends may not be hit.
- Hunt for Highscores and compete with other players around the world
- OpenFeint/Gamecenter leaderboards and achievements
- The game speed goes up with each face, that appears out of the holes.

The most things you can see in the video in the first post of this thread.

I would really love to hear from somebody who can help me out with the text!

Thank you!

Is "Bang A Foe" a good name?

Hi,

due to legal issues, we have to rename the game, our suggestions: "Bang A Foe"... but I don't know, if this is a good name, what do the native english-speakers think, should we use this name?

Thanks for your reply!

Thanks for answering...

Do you think, that "Bang" is a bad name or a good name, cause of the sexual undertone? Would the game get less or more attention because of that? Or does this word have a negative touch? I am not a native english-speaker so I can't really estimate that :-(

lol, i agree, though he's right 'bang a foe' would probably get more attention.

personally i prefer smash a foe, its more clear about what the game is...

Playing: Ski Safari, Polara, Girls Like Robots, Dynamite Jack, Monster Flip, Polymer, Super Mole Escape, Dream of Pixels, Radballs
