Gleamer - A new type of platformer [Universal]
Hi everyone. I'd like to tell you about my new game 'Gleamer', which is a one-touch twitch/puzzle platformer.
The premise of the game is quite simple: You have a gleamer (the yellow box), which moves automatically back and forth between the walls of the room. When it touches a wall, its speed increases. You control the gleamer by touching the screen to make it jump.
In each level there are five stars. Use your gleamer to collect the five stars to finish the level. There are blue platforms and red platforms. You can use the blue platforms, but not the red ones. Red platforms will destroy your gleamer.
Each level has a 'Master Time'. For those who enjoy an extra challenge, you will want to collect the stars faster than the 'Master Time' for that level. To do this you will have to figure out what order to get the stars in, control your speed, and have very precise timing.
There are 50 challenging levels in the game. You can see a small selection of some of them below.
Here is a short trailer (the captured footage is 30fps, but the actual game runs at 60fps):
The game is universal, and should be playable on all devices from iPhone 3GS and newer. I will be looking for testers really soon, so it would be great it anyone wants to help me test it. I'd be especially grateful for testers with an iPhone 3GS or iPad 1, as I haven't tested on these myself. I'm aiming for release in late July/early August.
Feel free to ask me any questions in this thread. I'll reply as soon as possible, however I am in Australia so I might be sleeping while you are awake. Also, you can follow me on twitter @emmetmorris.
