    I think it looks really good. What size image is it?

    If it's small (320x480) I'd recommend making it larger and putting a camera control on the ball. Just my 2-cents.

    Looks good though!

    Any thing you might remove or add?

    The arched shapes can be rounder.
    Looks great. Perfectly fitting your Loonimals theme.

    How are sales going with the Loonimals? As expected?

    I would remove it from the Education section and place it under Games. Even though it is a Kiddies game it is still a game.

    That was a MISTAKE!
    It was suppose to be in category Games (kids , educational )
    And second category of educational .

    Ill reverse it in the update , it is possible right ?!

    Your art style is really nice and bright. The 2nd pinball table looks better with the smoother curves.

    Give me a buzz if you need some original music in your games.

    Looks really good pom, but to keep with the animal theme you should have actual seals (or your walrus) with their flippers for the flippers!!
  • LumpAppsLumpApps Posts: 2,865Member
    Better! ;)

    this art work is not good

    you can make it better

    Really it doesn't sell? It is so polished and like 8 games in 1. Wonder if it would sell better if all those game were separate game, but for me this package sounds like an awesome deal for 99c. Probably need some visibility. Is there any games for kids that sell well?

    I'm not sure if I'd play that, but I'd buy it for my kids if only I had.

    The background graphic looks fine but, IMO, the Skin colour and wood textures need changing to another graphic or the same texture.

    Have a look at real pinball tables. Notice the lighting varies enormously. Sometimes the background is quite dark until a bumper or lit graphic highlights a portion of it. Notice also how the screws look, their size and location.

    I know that you are not doing a simulation but incorporating a few simple effects would really show.

    Cheers

    Looks really great, can't wait for the update. If sales are bad, why not have it as a third loonimals game?

    Lets see if ill make it to N&N this week and then ill consider this option , but i don't think this game alone is good enough by itself , there are many FREE pro pinballs out there , i don't think this one can compete with them.

    Hi Roy; I for one think it's very good indeed; love the fresh colours/graphics + nice employment of pinball. Looks a professional offering. :-)

    It looks great! Very well polished, especially now that I can see it in motion. Are you going to add music?
  • HoneyTribeStudiosHoneyTribeStudios Posts: 1,792Member
    Hmm. Does it play a bit slow? Then again, it's aimed at kids?

    Sure! background music and more sound effects will be added .

    Looks great, but judging by the graphics it's appealing to a 3-4 year old. Im not sure how many parents would let their kids play on their Iphone/Ipad or Ipod touch at that age. You also mentioned that your other app is not selling well, I think its the same issue.

    If I, as an adult consumer saw it on the AppStore, unfortunately I wouldn't buy any of them because it looks kiddie, and thus never even give it chance no matter how great they are.

    Looks better although personally I'd lose the wood texture.
    Maybe add actors to the walrus bird and monkey to light up when they are hit. Use the Additive setting and put the alpha to 0 normally. Then when the animal bumpers are hit the actors alpha can change to 0.5.

    The bird behind the monkey needs to be moved as it looks a bit odd.
