I have a great game that is 95% done. I could actually submit it to eh app store but I would like a good pair of eyes to spend some time and optimize it. There is a lot of actor spawning and movement so it can get a little laggy on some devices. I have tested it on iphone 4, iphone 5s and ipad 2. Additionally there are a few simple features I want to add in that I am having some trouble with. Please PM me if you are interested in the project. Obviously this will be paid work.

    Ok I have boiled this down a bit further. I have gone in a done a lot of optimization myself. The main thing I need now is for someone to optimize my enemy spawning. I believe the main issue in the game is use timers for a lot of the spawning. On fact I use timers within timers.

    So for example:

    To spawn the enemy rockets that fly across the screen, I am doing

    Every 4 seconds
    -- For 10 seconds
    ----Spawn missiles randomly

    So the effect is a sortie of missiles that lasts 10 seconds starting every 4 seconds. To complicate things, I have Spawn missiles randomly based on a function of the current score so that the missiles spawn more frequently as the game goes on. So I am basically looking for somebody to go through my code and switch out all of the timers for the more elegant methods described here:

    http://forums.gamesalad.com/discussion/44707/timers-are-for-chumps-gs-optimization-tips/p1.

    Additionally if there are other optimizations to be done lets get on that as well. One might be to tweak how my attributes are structured if necessary.

    I have a budget for this so please don't think I am looking for free work done. If money is al you love, then thats what you shall receive.

    So after about 12 seconds they are spawning missle consistantly. Does it end? Are you wanting missles to soawn in waves?

    It's rare to hear such an excellent euphemism. :)
