working title: "Not a retro LCD game like the Lambrettinis."

howdy.
we (the codder and me) made the little oldschool lcd game "lambrettinis" a long time ago and always wanted to make another iphone game.

i talked about that again and again in this thread.
we had ideas, but nothing kicked us (and we didn`t have any time for things, which weren`t kicking).

but a few month ago, we had a really nice idea and started it.
first, we didn´t know, if it is technical possible to do that with an iphone; but it works.

i can´t say much about the gameplay in the moment, because it`s something really new (we hope so), but you can have a look at the graphics of the game if you like to:
at my "official" facebooksite i`ll post there "work in progress" graphics and illustrations and informations about the game (and about some other stuff of mine. mostly i worked at board- and cardgames).

i also will post here at toucharcede some stuff, but i didn`t want to put to much time into the "preview" of the game. i told you, i`m really short of time.

ok, some short information about the game:
the player is a zombie and don`t fear nothing expect pink bunnies.

"oh, a zombie game?! how original…"
"pink bunnies? booooooring!"

yeah, you`re right. there must be ten millions of zombiegames out there. and to put some pink bunnies into it doesn`t sounds better.

we thought about it, but zombies fits into the theme (and i like zombies, especially the old ones like "dawn of the dead". and zombies have to be BLUE!).
and zombiekilling pinkbunnies seems to be nice (and they are easy to draw).

the whole illustrations of the game will be hand-drawing 2D.

and no, it won`t be a retrostyled game.

ok, back to work. i hope, we will release the game at the end of this month!

hm?!
just had a view at the itunesstore:
zombie vs. plants, zombies vs. lambs, zombies vs. whatever…

is there anything, that wasn`t in a zombiegame before?

for my excuse i must say, that i haven`t so much games on my iphone.

well, i know, that it will be hard to be original if we make a zombiegame, but as i wrote, it fits to the gameplay.
never mind, the animations are done, hope you`ll like it nevertheless.

oh, we could have use a crashtestdummy as the gamecharacter. but this isn`t really sexy.
and what should be the enemies? walls? cars?
nah, a zombie is ok.

today, i`ll finish the gamemenues (i hope so), then some betatesting and the game is ready for apples review.

selfmotivating!!!

oh, i didn`t google, if there is a game with our gameplay out there.
i`m a little bit frightened, that somebody done this before.

uff, the mainscreen is ready.
the gametitle is still secret (behind the black area).
i hope, the other screens won`t be so much time-consuming (the screen doesn`t looks so complicated, but i`m a little bit tired and outburned, so it takes really long to make.)

Lemme guess the name... Bunnies vs Zombies

Edit:

"Tab your name"?? WTH does that mean? :P

You'd do really well to have some testers from toucharcade here.

yeah, my english is just some kind of english. the codder`s english is much better, so he will make the finetuning.
the meaning of "tab your name!" should be, that you can insert your name there. i tried to use the same number of letters for the sentence you can us for your name.
ok, we will change that.

Yea TA beta testers are the best! Most of us have tens or hundreds of tested games! For me it is 10. Send me PM if you want me to test it, but I recommend to make it open beta over here, like open for applications.
