Default Pyro-Mamma [BETA-TEST] now open!

Hi everyone,

<<Update2>> Aug 25th. After first being rejected for an IAP requirement that we initially failed to address, we received a new notice about our game concept being rejected because of having babies flying out a burning building considered to be violence and abuse towards children, so we are in the process of substituting the babies which will be a more lengthy process. With this bad news comes good ones, in respect to the things Pyro-Mamma will include (milti-player) from launch so please bear with us while we show this baby how to fly out the window. Nevertheless, we appologize for the delays to everyone interested in Pyro Mamma. Thanks for your undestanding and support. -Ed

My name is Eddy Mendoza from HolaBoss Games, a small indie studio from Mexico City with a compulsive love for iOS gaming. We have a new game launching and we would like to invite some fellow Toucharcaders to test it before launch. All your feedback and opinions on this thread are helping us improve this game

Here's some of what the current testers are saying:
-- "PyroMamma has very great and colored graphics, comfortable UI, nice BGM, great idea and plot!". - Vlad Fatenko
-- "I have played through the first few levels in story mode, it is very fun and addictive already." - Fluffernutter

We have very few open testflight slots left, so sign up now - http://tflig.ht/OsnhDl
Since we have very few beta spots left we can only authorize one device per user.

<<NEWS>> A new testflight update is available now, so be sure to update your existing copy. It has better tilt control among other improvements. See the app description below for more info.

Thank you for all your positive comments and detailed feedback, which we used in this new update!

KNOWN ISSUES WITH CURRENT VERSION

✭ When you loose a life you can regain it by scoring a 25 chain combo. This is working fine but the lives icons do not update to show your recovered life.
- Comunication with Game Center leaderboards or achievements is disabled in this testflight version because our profile is being used by the submitted app. Achievements do work without game center though.
- IAPS costing real money are disabled for the same reason as Game Center. You get to test how much you can progress without spending.

Default Additional info

This game was set to launch in early July, but due to some set-backs while registering our company profile with Apple, the game was submitted until Tuesday July 24th, so here's your chance to have a go before launch. Once registered you will also be able to early test our upcoming multiplayer modes in the near future!

The game will be free, but was designed as a paid title with iaps, so in result it is as generous a title as it could be in respect to giving away coins and goodies. One can complete the game and get all the power-up upgrades without spending a dime. Actual purchases will just help in achieving this in less time.

As obsessive gamers for over 30 years, we honestly think that this game has potential to challenge even the most seasoned players in its later stages and survival mode.

Your replys on this thread are of course highly appreciated.

Thanks!
-Ed

I received a notification to beta test today, I went to testflight to install it, it said it needed to install a provisioning file, I installed that but every time I try to install the game it tells me to install the provisioning file again. I can't wait to try this game.

Sorry about that. I mistakenly aproved 3 testers in testflight who received the invitations before we created your provisioning profiles, which was planned for tomorrow Monday.

To fix this we have now added the profiles for everyone registered until this morning so it should work fine now and you'll be one of the few that will get to play the game today, cheers!... and sorry for the inconvenience.

Everyone that registers from this point on will receive their invites in the evening of tomorrow Monday 30th, so sign up and preview our game, you won't regret it!

Thanks everyone for your support!
-Ed

By the way, IMHO the touch controls make the game easier which is great for the Suvival mode where it can get really hectic, but I generally prefer to play the Story levels with tilt control, as I find it more challenging this way. I have yet to manage achieving all the medals in the third city with tilt controls.

Also while Survival mode is now available from the start, you only get one life which makes it really hard, so try getting the perfect medals in each city to receive free extra lives and be able to last longer in Survival.

Finally, in this testflight version, real money iaps are disabled because we have already submitted this version for review by Apple, and its uploaded binary is using the same profile for its iaps. What this means is that you will be testing the game as a non-paying fan, so you can check out how much the game adheres to ethical freemium best practices. Additionaly, when the app goes live, you'll also be able to get free coins with Tapjoy offers.

Thanks,
-Ed

Thanks for fixing it today. I have played through the first few levels in story mode, it is very fun and addictive already. I find myself wanting to save the elephants and dogs over the babies. I have a couple of small issues/questions, one is I had trouble placing the spring where I wanted so it didn't seem to be very useful for me. Second, if I don't catch the papers does that count against me or are they just a bonus?

Hey, Im glad to hear you are liking the game so far! Thank you for your kind words!

Could you be a little more specific with your issue with the Spring? Does it have to do with a delay while you were moving very quickly? The Spring can be a real life saver and they are the most affordable power-ups, so here goes some tips:

SPRING FEATURES & TIPS:
  1. if you know some waves where you're having trouble, you can plan ahead and plant a Spring in the challenging areas, such as close to the ambulance or near the building, just in case you are on the opposite side.
  2. If you want to use a spring as a last minute solution, first use a bullet-time, then lay down the spring and go back to catch whatever else you have left.
  3. Remember that the Spring's collider is a little larger than the spring so even when there is some space between them they will work, (almost one full spring).
  4. Springs also work as shields against fire, after being upgraded.
  5. Springs can catch bonuses for you.
  6. You can place up to 5 Springs at a time.


For your second question, yes the papers count the same as babies and other objects. It just takes a little practice to catch them correctly. Nevertheless we're going to enlarge their collider as you're not the only that's had trouble catching them.

Thanks for the feedback!
