Our game has a complete and fun story-telling!
Legendary Hammer was stolen by cutie aliens! Check out how it happens in game

And different from classic WAM, you cannot kill enemies by only bashing.
You need utilization of sliding, trembling etc to defeat various kinds of cutie opponents.
You will find various kinds opponents, however they all have sharp color so easy to determine what action you must do, It is easy and fun.

Also we prepare bosses on planets for player to challenge~

I added 2 demo videos in the first post, check it out : )

Oh, wow, I really liked the original twists to gameplay in Stage 3-5! There is a video on YouTube (I assume by you as well), that shows your family playing the game and I see them frequently shaking their iDevices...what was that about?

Actually that wasn't me, but maybe 1 of my team member

"Bubble" need player to shake before you bash him, or he will defense your attack!

Whoa!

This game DEFINITELY is a unique take on the Whack-A-Mole genre!

Only a few levels in at this point and it is getting insane!

Initially it was just aliens that required a single tap to knock out. Then they threw into the mix aliens that needed to be swiped down before tapping. Later there were aliens that required a shake of your iDevice before tapping. Dealing with any one of these alien types could keep you on your toes but this game is expecting you to, in an instant, take the appropriate action against each type of alien to take them down before they retreat back into their holes (and thus damage the player's life bar) when at any moment there could be 1-9 of them on screen at once!

I also think the game's Endless Mode is pretty clever as it presents the player with a scored survival mode utilizing all of the aliens you have unlocked so far. While this means, if loaded up before starting the Story Mode it is painfully easy with only the one tap aliens, coming back to it later with a wider mix of aliens is worth far more points.

This is a really fun game. It is nice to see someone take a tired idea and turn it into something different. This game is hectic and at times felt like dance dance revolution for my fingers. There are a lot of moves to learn but they become second nature.

I am playing this on an iPad and it works great. I will say tha the bubble guys can be tricky since you need to shake the system. However, I play with my iPad on my lap so this is not a problem.

Game Impressions

Hammer Kingdom's concept is great (perhaps inspired by Eyezmaze's Tontie?), but it's let down by several problems/bugs.

The major problem ::
I cannot get any vertical slice to register on level 1-10, even when it indicates that I'm supposed to vertically slice by showing the dark line. This is the same boss that is being fought in the boss video on youtube, so either a) the version in the app store is bugged, or b) the gameplay on this level is so incredibly fiddly that I can't get it to work even after trying a dozen times. Either way, the end result is the same. I'm stuck.

Diamond problem ::
The diamonds appear to be bugged. On level 1-1, for example, it says "Make a perfect day", but playing the level perfectly doesn't earn you a diamond. On level 1-4 it says "Shop for accessories", but buying something from the store doesn't earn you a diamond.

Store problem ::
Upgrades should tell the player what they do. Even after buying the sweets and the drink, I can't tell what their function is.

Honestly, I'm just kind of annoyed with this game. Paying customers shouldn't be beta testers.

Cheers.

Thanks~ nice to hear you enjoy the game!

BazookaTime:
"Dance dance revolution for my fingers", this description is great and fun!

Georgina:
Thanks for the report! Let's take a look on those problems!

1-10 boss:
Current version the boss battle need player to do a slide "within" the BIGSTAR, we tested it many times but never think we need a larger hitbox, because our motion is not large enough, too small.
Now we are going to make the hitbox larger and hope it's more sensitive~
Please look forward to v1.01!

At this moment I provide a solution, try to slide it within the red area, hope this helps~~


Diamond:
1-1,1-4 really bugged, we will do bug fixing.

Store:
Okay our team is discussing about this. Our original idea, is let the player explores what the items do themselves.
But seems players more likely to get clearly information!
Let's see what will happen , check out the next update.

That's it, hope those helps~~
Really thanks for your reporting, we are willing to improve and become better

Cheers.
