Posted in Air Supply, App Store, Apple, Games, News, Reviews, Uncategorized on October 14th, 2014 by quantumsheep

Hello all!

Well, SOS has been out less than a month and was featured by Apple on the US App store! Yay!

Thanks to everyone that has left a rating/review on the App stores around the world! It’s greatly appreciated! ๐Ÿ˜€

An update has just gone live fixing the Game Center problems, so all should be good now ๐Ÿ˜€

Additionally, I’ve put together a list of some of the reviews across the internet! The praise has been almost universal, which is so lovely to see! Here they are:

Touch Arcade – 4.5/5

ArcadeLife – 91/100

Pocketgamer – 4/5

148apps – 4.5/5

iphonelife – 4.5/5

Thank you everyone that reviewed the game – I’m so chuffed you enjoyed it ๐Ÿ˜€

QS =D

I can’t please everyone, but…

Hello everyone! Hope you’re well!

Things are getting very busy at the moment. Most of the back-end stuff for ProjectSammy is in place. I have systems set up to handle the inventory, objects, locations, feedback and puzzles. It’s really quite overwhelming at times!

Soon I’ll start actually putting the game together, which will probably take a little over a month with any luck (that’s ‘developer’ talk for TWO months!). I’ve been very productive of late but the task ahead is huge!

In other news, I just wanted to say that I do read every single review posted on iTunes, good or bad! I appreciate that complete strangers take time out of their day to let me (and others) know what they think of my efforts!

I got a really well written review the other day for .Matrixx on the iPad by a chap called ‘The Other McCoy’. It reads:

Fine gameplayDifficult one to rate. It’s a good example of the new indie golden age we have on IOS – but I’d say one of the simpler games of the sort. Graphics are minimal (but clean), sound is a retro homage (quite nice actually), and gameplay is *golden*. It’s pretty straightforward but it works well. I’m no authority but it seems quite original to me. Another thing I like about it is that it has an easy-going “just one more time” vibe even though it does get pretty busy. With some arcade games I have to be in the mood for the challenge but I can goof around with this one anytime. I was tempted to rate it 3 because of its minimal nature but the gameplay and vibe take it to 4.

Firstly, thank you so much for giving the game a chance! Just as importantly though, I’m very glad you seem to be enjoying it. It really does make my day to read reviews such as yours, sir, and I thank you, and everyone else that writes reviews, for your opinions!

Spreading fun throughout the world is my mission! I can’t please everyone of course! But by Jove I try!

Many thanks!

Another Sunshine review! And a trip away! :D

Posted in App, App Store, Games, iPad, iphone, ipod, Mac, Reviews, Sunshine on November 28th, 2011 by quantumsheep

Hello all, hope you’re well!

I just got informed of another Sunshine review from the lovely people at Macgasm! ๐Ÿ˜€

Here’s a snippet!

“Where Sunshine really shines is with its charm. The cheerful main character is guaranteed to make you smile. Its cartoon visuals are painfully cute and if youโ€™re not beaming by the time you finish, youโ€™re officially dead inside. Hear Us? Dead. Inside. From the silly collectable hats the sun wears (youโ€™ve seen everything when youโ€™ve seen the sun wearing a fez), to the gameโ€™s uplifting soundtrack, Sunshine has a fun factor of 30.”

You can read the full review here.

How lovely is that? Thank you! ๐Ÿ˜€

In other unrelated news, I’m flying out tomorrow to the good old US of A to do a little work on a wonderful game that’s due out soon from my friend Joe over at Firemaplegames.com

Joe made the awesome Secret of Grisly Manor, and helped Jake and I out with art for Gravitrixx!

I’m looking forward to seeing him again, hanging out and working on his next big hit!

Yay!

Next blog post from the states no doubt! See you soon!

Another review for Sunshine and a quick thank you! :D

Hello! ๐Ÿ˜€

Well, launch day for Sunshine is drawing to a close for me. Still lots to do to try and promote my little game tomorrow, but it’s been a good day overall!

Thank you to everyone that helped spread the word, and for all the kind words for Sunshine! It’s really appreciated!

As the icing on the cake, this review came in late last night, and is rather wonderful! It’s by arcadelife.co.uk (and we always worry about disappointing them as they’re lovely and know their stuff!).

Fortunately it’s a good review, with an incredible 91/100 on the scoreboard for Sunshine! I had to sit down and have a cup of tea to recover, believe me!

Here’s the review!

Thanks to arcadelife, 148apps.com, theAppReviewer, Twitter and Facebook followers, people that left reviews and ratings on iTunes and everyone else that helped today! It’s been fun and knackering all at the same time!

So that’s day 1… time for bed methinks!

Thanks again!

148apps.com reviews Sunshine! :D

Posted in App, App Store, Apple, Games, iPad, iphone, ipod, News, ProjectSOL, retro, Reviews, shmup, Shooter, space, stars, Sunshine on November 10th, 2011 by quantumsheep

So, the game is out today on iPhone and iPad, and you can find more details on it here!

I got a wonderful review of the iPad version from 148apps! It’s lovely!

You can read it here ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s so wonderful that the reviewer absolutely got what the aim of the game is – to make you smile like an idiot! ๐Ÿ˜€

I’ve always liked the site – our previous games scored 3 stars (Gravitrixx) and 3.5 stars (Air Supply) from them. They’re hard to please, but they’re fair!

But most importantly, they give someone like me the chance of a little exposure in the sea of Apps that are out there.

And for that, above all else, I’m always very grateful!

Hope you enjoy the review – it made me smile lots!

Cheers,

QS ๐Ÿ˜€

Posted in Air Supply, App, App Store, Apple, Games, iphone, ipod, News, retro, Reviews, sci-fi on May 11th, 2011 by quantumsheep


Hello all! ๐Ÿ˜€

Business Insider made a very interesting and fun post called “The Best iPhone Games You’ve Never Played” – and Air Supply is featured!

So if you’ve never played Air Supply, give it a go here!

Also, I’ve just submitted an update to Apple with GameCentre leaderboards added. There’s one for each colour available in the game, as well as an overall highest score leaderboard for Air Supply and Fuel Supply modes!

Hopefully it’ll go through ok! Looking forward to seeing everyone competing at last!

Wish me luck! ๐Ÿ˜€

I love that vid. I mainly feel bad about the guy’s broken screen, but I love that he seems to be enjoying himself regardless, and you can even hear him humming along to the music!

AWESOME ๐Ÿ˜€

And there’s more actual gameplay footage here.

I’m busy working on 1.2 at the moment – hopefully done by the weekend!

Hope you’re all still enjoying the game! Lots more to come, Air Supply wise!
