edited November -1 in Announce Your Game!
just a basic setup using one of the joystick templates and my homing zombies creation. theres no way to die yet, no were else to go and nothing to do, yet. i will be using my friends band f.u.a. music throughout the game and the basic concept is the band plays a show and the crowd gets a zombie in it that spreads infection throughout....now you have to fight your way out of the concert...while the band continues playing.

    Great idea!

    Have you tested this on a device yet? I ask because with the spawned bullets, moving zombies (that I imagine are also being spawned to keep a steady supply), explosion particles, etc. you may run into some framerate issues on older devices. You may want to test it sooner rather than later in case you need to make some changes to the concept to deal with GS limitations. Just a heads up!

    Looks really fun though, and a great way to promote a band. Make sure the band gets their album on iTunes using tunecore or something like that so that you can link to their Album on iTunes from within the game.

    thanks, yeah i was worried about it not being able to handle it but i did what i could to keep things simple and to make it look like the game is doing more then its doing. for some reason the game runs clunky as soon as its uploaded from itunes to my old iphone but right after a restart it runs as smooth as the video and as in gamesalad. only thing being spawned so far is the bullets and when a zombie is killed instead of respawning another zombie i reposition him to a different spot. so far i think there is only 10 actual zombies running around the board at a time even though i think it could still handle 10 more but that would be a little chaotic. thanks for the idea of linking the band from within the game it will be interesting to see how that goes for them.
