Monochromania ~A Whole New World to Tower Defense~

Hi guys,

I'm the developer for Monochromania, it is an action packed tower defense with arcade style shooter element incorporated to create a whole new experience to gamers.

This whole project was started two months ago and I have been soloing everything including artworks, music composition as well as game coding( using game salad of course). I started by purchase a deepblueapps.com template and work around with it, here's the result of a innovative tower defense! : )

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description:
Monochromania is an Arcade Style Shooter + TD hybrid. It takes conventional TD to a whole new world by incorporating arcade shooter elements.

Featuring 5 crazy looking world including:

*Desktop Table

*Pirates of Carrybean

*The Earth
*Piano Concert

*Dungeon of Eleftheria (Coming Soon)

Fun and innovative gameplay!
*6 instant tower upgrades!
*Create mighty tower with FUSION!

*Dodge bombs and flying toxins! 
*Grab hearts to refill your health bar!

Amazing artstyle and CRAZY BOSSES including Oven, Captain Bean, COIN(?) and many mores!

Original classical compositions and rearrangement by Steven Chin!

    I agree with Uptimistik - There is a lot going on at once, and since the objects are all black and white, it is hard to see anything really.

    Looks fun, though.
    Good luck!

    Thanks guys! My initial intentions was to created a shumps style tower defense (the screen is much more busier than this!) but I have made some adjustment,

    I'm working on my first update and I might increase the contrast between objects. : )

    Hey guys, may I know usually Apple take how long to approve an app?

    My iTunes Connect still showing waiting for review after 4 days of submission.
  • tenrdrmertenrdrmer Posts: 9,934Member, Sous Chef, Senior Sous-Chef
    You should expect a 7 days of Waiting for Review and 24-48hours to be in review. Sometimes its longer and sometimes its less just depends on their workload.

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

    games look cool, but a little messy! fix it up and make more contrast between the actual player and the background stuff wich is only for the looking. And also try to make it less visible that you are using the template from deepblueapps.com

    Thanks for the advice, really appreciate it.
    Hopefully this game will be available at Appstore before Halloween. XD

    The look is good but could read more clearly. I would either change the colour of the foreground actors with tweaks to their colour values or soften the line black of the background to a grey so the foreground actors stand out against the background.
  • stevenc89stevenc89 Posts: 31Member
    Ok, I'll take note of it, probably have to redraw some of the backgrounds.

    By the way, what happen if I set my release date before my game approved by Apple? Will it stay in the Appstore library until I set a new date for release?
  • LumpAppsLumpApps Posts: 2,865Member
    I believe it will be released once approved.
    Try to time your release. Wednesday Is a good day.
    Then your game gets some attention from review sites (the cappy ones but hey) before the weekend and you are in time to be featured.
    I read this somewhere and it sound ligit.
  • stevenc89stevenc89 Posts: 31Member
    Got a bad feeling that Apple might delay approval of my game due to bunch of halloweens updates/games submitted for review...

    Thanks! I'm surprised that Monochromania has received more than 6000 downloads in the first 3 days of release!

    By the way, V1.2 update is live now. Introducing 6 awesome instant tower upgrades + tower FUSION! Get it now!

    Please report any bug the following email: [email protected]

    p/s: how to edit post? I want to change the pictures and information on the first post in this thread. : )
  • JohnPapiomitisJohnPapiomitis Posts: 6,256Member
    not to sound rude and im not trying to call you a liar or anythign so forgive me if thats what it seems like, i think its odd that you had 6000 downloads in the first 3 days alone and theres not 1 single review.

    Also for your question about editing your posts, let me know what you want changed and ill do it for you. Members only have an hour to edit there thread or posts, after that it can only be done by a sous chef (moderator)

    Well to be fair to the guy - it is New and Noteworthy in a load of stores and has had pretty good chart positions in lots of countries too!

    So 6000 seems plausable to me. Well done stevenc89.
  • JohnPapiomitisJohnPapiomitis Posts: 6,256Member
    like i said im not calling him a liar, its was more of a friendly observation.

    and yes very well done steve
  • UtopianGamesUtopianGames Posts: 5,685Member
    Nice work with our template, i should make a list of all the games featured in N&N using our templates:)

    A lot of changes have been made which is always nice and it looks fun!

    Best of luck with sales.

    Thanks guys!

    I've submitted V1.21 update to fix the following issues:
    -Electrone's trap image doesn't show up in World 2,3 and 4
    -Medic's healing not working properly
    -Lag in several maps
    -Stage completion record problem

    By the way, I have just received the following email saying that I'm spamming the forum...

    Details of the mail:

    Please stop spamming the GameSalad forums with bogus information about your game.
    We try to maintain a good atmosphere there, and lately we have been getting too many complaints about you.
    I strongly suggest that you stop posting, or you will quickly discover that the ban switch has been flicked.
    Again, we do not tolerate your type, and we really don't care about your game. Announcing it is one thing, writing a thesis about it is another!
