Looks interesting.

But why not call it Bully Warfare? Homemade Shooter sounds incredibly generic and nothing I would have picked out of iTunes.

The icon also screams "generic game not worth paying any attention". Somebody went to a lot of effort to create this game, but has gone to great length to keep any other person from wanting to play it.

We realized ALL of this after we released the game at the end of March. What we have done is prepared a massive update for the game once the free sale ends.

If you see the above trailers and images at the end of the post that's what the game will be on Thursday.

"Slingshot Justice" with new graphics and images and a hell of a better iTunes icon.

Maybe if we get enough interest we may release the update for a free time this week too!

I see what you mean now that I played it. The visual slingshot is a good idea. I had trouble determining where it would shoot (even when compensating for distance+time). That was the most frustrating part for me.

I'm glad to know retina will be added, as that was one of those 'ick' moments. Even in apps/games with toned down graphics, that fuzziness is always tough to tolerate.

I do like the concept of the game. Defending the stand from the different types like the bike riders and hoodies is a pretty novel concept.

For my own taste, I'd love it far more if it were mixed with a bit of tower defense, like let us place down temporary objects on the field to redirect them from the stand, or 'turrets' that help take down bullies en masse? Or if there were some Rampart elements like building a fort around the stand between rounds, and being able to add kids within its walls to help fend off groups.

These are great ideas and we will explore them for our next update!
