Alpha Swarm - Entering 2nd Beta soon



Hey there!

Just stopping by to introduce my game coming out next month, titled Alpha Swarm. It is a platformer with a unique twist: you strategically select your abilities at the beginning of each level, then navigate through with swipes. So it's a fun mix between platformers, shooters, and even Turn-Based Strategy games.

You'll encounter many different obstacles, 12+ weapons and abilities, and it includes GameCenter online scores.

I'll release more information soon, along with a couple of promo videos in the works!

Also: The first wave of Beta is nearing completion, but I'm looking to expand it to experienced members of this community to help as well! Mainly I need your GameCenter scores to help me determine the Bronze, Silver, and Gold star thresholds.

I like the graphical style from the screenshots, but a video would help a lot more for seeing the gameplay. But so far, looks good. I'm looking forward to hearing more information.

A promotional video is in the works, hopefully finished in the next few days.

And guys, make sure you PM me or post your emails so I can include you in the Beta.
