Game of the Month - October Submission Thread

dgackeydgackey Austin, TXPosts: 699Key Master, Head Chef, Member, PRO GameSalad Employee
Good afternoon!

As October is right around the corner, it's about time we got some fresh submissions for Game of the Month, isn't it?


We'll be continuing using the same basic rules that we've used in the past:

This thread will remain open until Friday, 10/11. At that time, I'll close the thread to new submissions and the GameSalad team will select a winner.

We'll contact the winner via email and ask you a couple of questions to build a blog entry that will showcase your game.

We will feature the Game of the Month in dedicated Facebook, Twitter, and GameSalad.com blog posts, as well as being featured in the Monthly Newsletter.

-= The Ground Rules =-

Submissions:

* Your game must be complete and published! (We have to be able to play it to know if it is worthy of winning!)
* Just to be clear, this is not a post to simply "announce" an upcoming game.
* Games must be posted within the sticky thread in order for it to be considered
* You can submit a previously submitted game if it has not already won.
* Games with a YouTube trailer will receive the best consideration.

Contacting the Winner:

* In order to be featured, winners will have one week to submit answers to a questionnaire (for us to compile a featured blog post).

Let the submissions begin!

    I actually just finished my first GameSalad game and it's now available on the iOS app store. Here's a quick promotional video I made for it. The game is called Jump Jump Boom.



    Here's where it's for sale on the App Store.

    https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/jump-jump-boom/id711279985?mt=8

    There's a bunch of stuff in this game I'm proud of, such as the way the player grabs onto things and jumps off of them. Also, the parallax are really nice. I actually had to tone those down a bit because of what GameSalad could handle at the time, but I may go back and review that...

    Thank you for your consideration!

    Also... what's a "sticky" thread? I hope that's this.

    In the year 2213, the President of the United States of the world decides to finance a mission to save the world from a violent epidemic.
    The head of the mission was Doctor Twist, an Italian researcher who discovered a revolutionary technique that can save the world from this new disease. All patients were taken to hospitals-bunker to be treated with the technique of Doctor Twist.
    Trying to save the sick with Doctor Twist, was a robot with the appearance of a very nice nurse and doctors volunteers who with their devices, try to control the mini clones with Doctor Twist to eliminate the virus from the cells of patients.https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=2O9rmHK8FVM#t=59

    So are you taking over for you know who?

    In the sense that I pick up anything and everything I can to ease the burden on the dev team so they can focus on product development, yes :)

    But long term we would like to find a long term solution at community manager to fill Matthew's shoes ;)

    For now, we're all grabbing a hammer and doing whatever needs to be done.

    @silverduck a sticky thread is one that sticks to the top of the forums list marked as "Announcement". It doesn't go down the list when newer threads are added, not until they've been unstuck or a new sticky thread has been updated. Only GS staff, and probably moderators can stick a thread.

    By the way I like the popping sound and effect in your video. Weird I know!

    Can I ask whats happening with August/September GOTM?
  • dgackeydgackey Austin, TXPosts: 699Key Master, Head Chef, Member, PRO GameSalad Employee

    Can I ask whats happening with August/September GOTM?

    I'm not sure what the status of August was, but I assumed it had been selected and awarded? Wouldn't have been any reason not to have, that I'm aware of...

    September was a wash, unfortunately, due to the office move and personnel transition.

    I repeat my post from the (un-awarded) august thread :D
    I have updated my game a couple of days ago

    THE RIDDLES OF FINGERLING
    $0.99 / €0.89

    https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/the-riddles-of-fingerling/id644177060?l=it&ls=1&mt=8

    It's an adventure game and, like my other apps, I have made by myself graphics, original music, concept and programming.
    It took me almost two years to complete it.

    So, hope you enjoy it!



    Game features:

    * "Random-Generated Riddles": every time you start a new game, the riddles are randomly chosen. About 1 million possible combinations to each new game, high replay value.

    * "Point and Click" Adventure, "Mystery Game" and "Escape Game" all in one.

    * Investigate the murder, enter in the suspect's dreams and find all the clues.

    * Brain teasers, classic riddles, mathematical sequences, find objects and keys to proceed in the adventure: a lot of things to do to resolve the mystery.

    * Two different worlds: the real one and the dream world, full of puzzles and riddles to solve.

    There is no post about which game was selected in August so I re-submit my game PixHELLanD.

    PixHELLanD is a hardcore platformer/shooter/puzzle and address game (using the gyroscope for this part), inspired by SuperMeatBoy.
    There are more than 100 levels, 4 modes (solo, 2 players, Boss mode, 1 life mode).

    I hope you will enjoy PixHELLanD! ^__^

    This is actually my 2nd game. I started to venture gamesalad programing few months ago from Creating an iPhone App start to finish GameSalad youtube tutorial gendaigames. So Kind of evolve some features that I just learned by bugging moderators in this forum lol.. At the end it was worth effort for me. The app has been released today.
    It's bouncing game where Little need to collect stars to get power up. The game is quite basic but it's a biggie for me for the learning curve of programming. The game is just free to download.

    Hi everyone,
    I always liked games where you send your troops forward "Tower defend games" and also liked those where you are the main character, and take part of the action as well. So that's how I came across the idea for "The Last Braver Archer" where you can play both ends. Double the thrill!
    100 levels, 11 unique enemies, 10 bosses and 3 allies. Plus my own style, you couldn't ask for more. Well you could, but...

    Link to AppStore--Lite version
    https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/the-last-brave-archer-lite/id683613742?ls=1&mt=8

    Thanks.

    Here's my submission from August thread.
    It's now FREE, so go ahead and enjoy.

    Spacetower
    Universal iOS
    Casual Action Arcade

    http://www.appstore.com/spacetower

    Dr. Eager had discovered Planet Harmony long time ago. It was now up to him to find a way to make it inhabitable for people. Years passed by and no solution could satisfy him. One starry night, he was staring through the tiny lens of his monstrous telescope. He sighed, “Ah !! What a beautiful planet !! But how should we get ..”.

    He felt a sudden tug at his shoes. It was his son, Adventurer. “Daadaa.. Daadaa.. ”, He said, while pointing at his colourful alphabetical blocks. Adventurer picked up one of the blocks and Up he raised his hand. He began to hum a little whistle, “Zzzoooo.... ”. Down came his hand and he whammed the block straight atop another one.

    Adventurer began to clap frantically, “ Daada.. Daada.. Daada.. ”, He blurbed. Dr. Eager’s eyes widened and began to glow up. His son had just shown him a passage into the future.

    I at FISH, take Immense pleasure to share with you the release of my latest iOS Casual Game, ‘Spacetower’. In Spacetower, spaceships are deployed from top and the player is put in control to land them one atop another. The game is about skilful control and endurance, to build the Tallest Tower of Spaceships. Along the way you’ll get to collect Coins and Power Tokens. It won’t be easy throughout. You’ll have to face the winds, the further you’ll go the stronger they become. The higher you’ll go, the stronger will become, the pull downwards.

    Here's my (first) submission!

    #tap ten trillion (or #ttt)
    Universal app


    The idea behind #tap ten trillion (or #ttt) is as simple as addictive.

    Tap the stone -> receive points -> buy new things, which improve your tap-damage & which tap for you-> break the stone!


    As the name suggests, you have to tap the stone 10 (american) trillion times. On your way to the ten trillion taps, you'll upgrade your workers, improve your diggers and buy a mine!
    The objects from the shop produce a certain amount of taps every second, helping you destroying the stone.

    #tap ten trillion has an average rating of 4.5 stars in the US, 5 stars in the UK, Germany and Australia. Two days ago, the 1000th copy was downloaded :)

    @silverduck, I wouldn't provide them as anyone on the forums can use them.

    I'm sure GameSalad can afford a few dollars to check out each paid game that's submitted :)
