Hello all!

Posted in Air Supply, App Store, Apple, art, Games, iPad, iphone, ipod, Mac, Mobile, Music, News, sci-fi, screenshots, shmup, Shooter, space, stars, twitter, video on March 18th, 2014 by quantumsheep

Hello! Hope you’re all good!

 

Life and game development has meant I haven’t been able to post here in a while, though you can keep up with me on Twitter if you like! I’m on there daily!

 

Anyway, I’ve been working on the latest Air Supply game – ‘Air Supply – SOS’.

 

Inspired by the very first game my brother bought for our ZX Spectrum (Jetpac – I got Tranz Am – both are AWESOME), SOS is nearing completion!

 

You play as Spaceman Sam in a mission from the Mothersheep to rescue her children! You fly around the level using a jet pack, picking up sheep and putting them in your rocketship!

When the rocket’s full, you take off to the next level!

It’s fun, honest! Part of the reason it’s taking so long is that I keep playing it for far too long when testing! 🙂

 

A few stats:

  • 10 planets await!
  • 100 levels!
  • 10 playable characters!
  • 10 boss characters!
  • 10 music tracks to unlock!
  • 10 colours/ranks to unlock!
  • 12 Perks to unlock
  • Explosions! Space ships! Aliens! Jet packs! Oh my! 😀

 

I really have to get back to it, but here’s some screenshots!

And a very short video!

I’m excited to be finishing this with a release set for some time in April! I want to send out an SOS as soon as I can 😉

Sorry again for not posting before. You’d have thought I’d have mastered this ‘time’ thing by now!

The game is DONE :D

Posted in Air Supply, App, App Store, Games, iPad, iphone, Mobile, Music, News, retro, sci-fi, video, youtube on November 14th, 2013 by quantumsheep

Hey all, hope you’re well!

 

Very very tired sheepy here. I am off to bed soon (it’s gone 9am here!), but the good news is the game is done, has been reviewed, and will be out tomorrow (November 15th!)

 

EEK! :O

 

I’ll keep this short and leave you with a little video I made of the game!

 

Hope you like it!

Bugged :(

Posted in Air Supply, App, App Store, Apple, News, opinion, retro, sci-fi on November 1st, 2013 by quantumsheep

Hey all, hope you’re well!

 

So, it’s November 1st as I look out the window and I’m wondering where my bloody game is!

 

Oh, you are too? Awesome!

 

Well, it’s finished. I mean really, honestly finished. The unlocks are in, and I just have to add GameCenter to it and it’s ready to ship to Apple!

 

Yay!

 

Unfortunately, even at this late stage, I’m discovering bugs. Like this one:

friendlybug

Scary, eh? But also friendly! It’s saying ‘Hello’ 😀

 

So what does this mean?

 

Well, firstly it means that my game’s very friendly and playful, even when it’s throwing bugs at me! 😀

 

It also means I’m still testing it, and new bugs are still being found and being fixed!

 

What this is leading to is a slight delay. I’m not rushing this out full of bugs that’ll need to be fixed and will annoy people. That’s not the plan.

 

I’d much rather fix it now than after it’s annoyed someone.

 

Having said all that, the game will be released, and released soon. And despite my best efforts, it will have some bugs in it. All software does!

 

I’m just trying to minimise them as much as sheepily possible!

 

Thanks so much for your support and patience – it means the world to me, and I hope to have something fun for you guys to play soon!

 

Have a great weekend!

 

QS 😀

“Air Supply – Infinite” Sam is back!

Posted in Air Supply, Android, App Store, Apple, art, Games, iPad, iphone, ipod, Music, News, retro, screenshots, space, stars on September 2nd, 2013 by quantumsheep

Hello all, hope you’re all good!

I’ve been beavering away at another Air Supply game!

Hurrah!

Sam is back, this time running round whole planets, trying to get to ‘The Void’ where he can pick up an Infinity Cup!

Here’s a work in progress screenshot:

asi_august copy

 

 

Gameplay is simple. The basics are:

Jump over aliens.
Tap anywhere to jump.
Double tap to activate a Smart Bomb (I think, therefore I am).
Don’t forget your AIR IS RUNNING OUT!

There are unlocks a-go-go, and an awesome soundtrack by that genius Yerzmyey, who writes his music on retro computers (the tracks were written on a ZX Spectrum/ZX81 with an AY chip).

No trailer as yet, but I thought I’d post a ‘Music Teaser’ video that should whet your aural appetites:

 

 

I’m hoping this one will be a universal build, with GameCenter leaderboards and achievements

Thanks for tuning in! I’ll try and keep you updated on what’s happening.

Release (Attack of) the Kraken! :D

Posted in Amazon, App, App Store, Attack of the Kraken, FREE, iPad, iphone, ipod, Kindle, retro, sci-fi, shmup, Shooter, space, stars on January 31st, 2013 by quantumsheep

Hey all! Hope you’re well!

The assault on non-iOS devices continues with Attack of the Kraken for Kindle devices! 😀

Best of all it’s FREE – forever! No In-App-Purchases. No ads. Just a free game for you to (hopefully) enjoy!

The game will also be going free on iPhone from tomorrow (February 1st, 2012) so iPhone/iPad owners that haven’t tried it can have it for nothing too!

Working on the Android version, also free, which will be out soon with any luck!

Hope you like it! It was my first ‘proper’ iOS game, and while rather old (can I call it Retro?) it’s still quite fun I think!

Toodles!

These ARE the droids you’re looking for!

Posted in Android, App Store, Games, Google Play, Gravitrixx, Mobile, News, retro on January 22nd, 2013 by quantumsheep

Hey all! Another update! Already!

I was up converting .Matrixx for the Kindle Fire when I realised I hadn’t signed up for the android store, otherwise known as ‘Google Play’.

The process only took about half an hour. And half an hour later, I had a version of Gravitrixx submitted!

You can find it here for Android.

Crazy stuff. It also takes just hours after submission to be published. So it’s available NOW!

I need a cup of tea. And some sleep I think…

Hope you Android users enjoy the game, and I’ll get busy bringing more to your format of choice!

Gravitrixx on Kindle Fire :D

Posted in Amazon, Android, App, App Store, Games, Gravitrixx, Kindle, puzzle, retro, sci-fi on January 21st, 2013 by quantumsheep

“You’ve taken your first step into a larger world.” – Obi Wan Kenobi, Star Wars

Hello all!

Just a quick note to let you know that old sheepy favourite “Gravitrixx” has made it onto the Kindle Fire!

Yay!

You can find the game here 😀

Also, why not check out our game page for more details!

This is a very exciting start to the new year for me! I’m already looking at getting our other games onto the Kindle, including the much loved Air Supply!

But that’s not all! Testing is going on right now to try and get these games onto Android, and if Microsoft can sort out my account you’ll see them on Windows 8 too.

Busy, busy sheepy!

For now though, Gravitrixx has been a good start! Thanks all for reading!

QS 😀
