Default Untitled Platform Game


Low bandwidth Version | Pop Up


Hey guys,

Here is a video of a game I started working on for iOS Game Dock but I have added iCade and Joypad support too.

The game is currently using the Mario tile set at the moment but a new design is currently out for tender to replace these assets.

The finished graphics will have an Indiana Jones theme (think Egyptian or Mayan) but still be pixel art.

It's going to be a 2-4 player (5 or 6 if it plays ok) platform game for the iPad.

The game will need extra hardware to play. You cannot play with just an iPad. It supports up to 4 Joypad (iOS app) controllers AND the 2 from iOS Game Dock OR iCade. As iOS Game Dock and iCade use the same button layout the 2 devices cannot be used together.

Denis Krako (http://soundcloud.com/denis-krako) will be doing the game music, you should check out his page, he has some amazing stuff.

The app currently supports TV Out without mirroring so the iPad can show the score table on it's own screen when it's connected to a TV.

Any feedback much appreciated.

Added a new video here:

Now supports 5 players at once and has a basic title screen. The next video will demonstrate the TV Out.

Any feedback much appreciated.

Ah thanks for embedding the videos. The graphics are currently being redone on Elance and I am also awaiting a quote from http://www.armyoftrolls.co.uk to redo the assets.

You should check out the pixel artwork of armyoftrolls... It's amazing.

Just out of curiosity how did you embed the videos? I've looked how to do so but couldn't find anything obvious.

Got some potential designs through. Here is a character. The game will have a Mayan theme so I am going for Indiana Jones ish.

Thanks. I'll be adding a single player mode that is similar to Muffin Knight and designing the levels for that style of play. I will have the controls for single player be either on screen, iCade or Joypad.

Will there be an iPhone/iPod version?

Just some advice from one developer to another, unless you get into the top 15 iPad game charts for the US and stay there for a least 3/4 weeks you will not make much money. It maybe wise to go for the largest market just so you can have a chance to make any money and make it worth while.

Thanks. I won't be making an iPhone version but I don't do my personal programming to make money. I'm a contract developer professionally so I just use my work to sell myself. The game is only being developed in my spare time on the way in to work and designs have only cost a few hundered dollars.

This will be my first iPad only app so thanks for giving me a heads up on the market. I think it will showcase a fair few technologies; Bluetooth communication, Game Center, second screen and optimised code.

I'll upload a screen shot of the beginnings of single player shortly.
