WORLD 1-1 - Endless platformer

We're very excited to announce our upcoming game, WORLD 1-1.

WORLD 1-1 is a retro styled "endless platformer". Dash through the world delivering pizzas, the delivery guarantee doesn't make exceptions for alien invasions A new challenging world is generated every day, filled with easter eggs to spot.

It has simple, intuitive controls: tap to jump and tilt or use the buttons to control the running speed. You keep running forward as in an endless runner, but the speed changes gives a great level of control as you jump and run.

A gameplay video!




We have a few slots available for testers, PM if you're interested.

WORLD 1-1 will be for iPhone and iPod touch to start. An iPad version will be coming; we plan for it to include a level-builder tool for people to design and share their own worlds.

Immediately lost interest when I saw the words, "tilt your iPhone."

I was skeptical about the tilt controls too, until they got working right

But we'll be adding buttons as well, for those who don't like tilting. Programming away!

I guess I can give this a try. Will message you soon.

I don't particularly like tilt, but I'll try it.

We added button controls, they work well and look very cool.

So far, here are my imps:

Pros:

Awesome concept, the control over your speed makes it feel much more like a traditional platformer than an endless runner. LOVING this aspect of the game.

Cool retro graphics.

I like the mystery box, plus it seems like a decent price for $25.

Cons / things to be worked on:

Goodness gracious, PLEASE move the "Double slices?" button. I put my thumb in the lower right corner whe playing, and I've launched that IAP almost every game.

Either the guy on the icon needs to have darker skin or the guy in-game needs to have lighter skin, just for continuity. One looks caucasian and the other hispanic or black.

The tilt controls could use some work - namely, there's only three speeds you can go, and it would be more enjoyable if it was more fluid.

Button controls will be nice when they arrive.

Terrain graphics could use some work. The game could benefit from a few non- true 8-bit effects (See mikey shorts or The Other Brothers) to spice if up a little and make it feel a little more modern.

A toggle to turn off screen rotation (when you tilt) would be nice.


I know it *sounds* like there are more cons than pros, but I'm really enjoying World 1-1 so far!

We'll keep working on it...not bad when 1/2 the "cons" are easy fixes and smaller game tweaks (button already moved)
