the game is monkeys vs birds.
its my first game. I realize its a bit hard but my biggest problem right now is that it is a bit laggy. Im not sure how to fix this. I want to redo the bird and monkey graphics and add different kinds of birds and so on.

But i also want feedback
please either comment here or on itunes anything. Thanks!

    Iv not played the app yet, but are you spawning anything ?
    If so, it may be possible to recycle actors, making it run smoother.

    i spent alot of time... idk why it is laggy im pretty sure all the actors delete themselves

    Im Gonna be bluntly Honest here so don't read it if you are not able to take criticism.

    It is absolutely and completely irresponsible for you as a developer to submit an app with known issues or anything in "Beta" state Period. This is the crap that gives GameSalad such a bad name.

    Its just as ridiculous that apple allowed it through with obvious performance issues but ultimately the responsibility falls in your lap as the developer. There are very easy ways to get lots of people to test your app without submitting it to the app store with known bugs.

    It's not my fault I never learned to take responsibility for anything. ;)

    I wont give anyone a break that does this type of stuff because it affects and hurts ALL of us. They only thing that would satisfy me is if he acknowledges its not the right thing to do, removes it from the app store, finishes the it before resubmitting.

    Absolutly not. Its crazy to upload a beta build to the appstore. Thats not what the appstores for. This effects all of us, if you were serious about this you would understand.

    Hello Mutinysoft,

    Please keep in mind there are lots of threads found in the forum that offer excellent tips on optimizations and performance fixes, in addition to possibly eliminating bugs you may be encountering. We encourage you to explore these topics to provide the best possible game to your potential audience. Perhaps a bit more polish and testing before submission would be a great way to increase the value you're working for!

    Cheers, and happy developing!

    Why do you keep using that word? I do not think it means what you think it means.

    I removed the game, i bought a cheap iphone 3g to test with. Didnt mean to offend anyone... just figured it was an option. Got some good feed back from people though on how to fix it i am working on it.

    I removed it from the app store. Sorry for the mistake wont do it again.
