Default Clay Hunt - check out this innovative shooting game

Check out my just released game called Clay Hunt: http://www.rantonen.net/clayhunt

Clay Hunt is a clay pigeon shooting game. What makes it interesting is that it offers all new way to shoot with iPhone.

I found out that traditional tap, tilt or virtual stick based solutions all had some problems. Tilt-based solution not being efficient with moving targets. With tap-based solution player can't see the target because his/her finger is obstructing it. And finally virtual stick just feels like it's a port from other consoles and not taking advantage of iPhone's touch screen.

I'm a passionate gamer and in the end I created a game that I enjoy. I would really appreciate to hear what others think about it.

Clay Hunt 2.0 now available! Checkout the review video by Crazy Mike:

I wouldn't say impossible Clay Hunt controls are designed to resemble shooting with a shotgun. I would say that controls should emphasize the difference shooting with a shotgun or a sniper rifle.

Default Calling for aspiring game criticts!

I have some spare promo codes:
EYHM7TJ4AWT6
9K4FNTFY6JXL

If you get one, please inform other user in the forum. I would also appreciate some thoughts about the game either here or in the app store.

I would like to hear opinions about things like: controls, overall quality, learning curve (is the frustration/encouragement to learn in right balance) and of course were you entertained.

ps. thanks for djflippy and DaveMc99 for posting videos and app descriptions!

So far I'm enjoying this game. The controls take some time to get used to but I am improving. Overall good game except it could use a lot more content.

Here are some suggestions:
add more guns
add more rounds of clay pidgeons
add more backgrounds
maybe add a pass and play mode to compete against friends.

Thanks for the feedback and suggestions! I've been thinking about your first three suggestions. I couldn't see any benefit having just more guns, backgrounds or rounds of clay pigeons... but... if they would come with new game modes with some cool new elements, they would certainly be justified

I really liked that pass and play mode idea! I will keep that on mind when thinking about new game modes.

Default "What We're Playing"

Clay Hunt got featured in iTunes "What We're Playing"!

It has given nice boost to the sales and my confidence that introducing new kind of controls was a right move.

I'm still all ears for opinions about the game and suggestions for new content. Currently I'm concentrating on tutorial to introduce the shooting controls.
