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!

Progress Report! :)

Posted in Games, iphone, News, planets, retro, sci-fi, screenshots, space, stars on September 16th, 2013 by quantumsheep

So, back in July, I mentioned on Facebook that I had three main goals to accomplish by the end of the summer…

 

These were:

 

1. ZX Spectrum game!

2. Text adventure!

3. Air Supply on Android, Kindle, Mac, Win8

4. Something I’m very excited about but can’t tell you!

 

 

Well, number 4 turned out to be Air Supply – Infinite (ASI) – which I am beavering away on right now, hoping to finish before the end of the month. Maybe. Here’s a screenshot for you, showing off the improved scan lines:

 

 

Numbers 1 and 2 are still on, and I’m hoping to have another look at them once ASI is done. They really are just for fun though!

 

Looking out the window, it looks like Summer’s over 🙁

 

I’ve not quite managed to get any of my planned stuff done!

 

Oh no!

 

The real time-sink is testing. I’d estimate about 70% of my time goes on testing, the remaining 30% goes on actually making the games.

 

I’m sorry it’s taking so long. I’m absolutely terrified that there might be bugs in my games, and do my level best to eradicate them before they land in your perfectly manicured paws!

 

I won’t catch ’em all (there’s only so much one sheep can spot!) but I’ll be sending test copies of ASI out soon!

 

And then, soon after, you’ll be able to play it for yourselves! We’re talking a few short weeks here with any luck, as opposed to months and months of waiting!

 

Thanks for your patience!

“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!

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

Posted in App, App Store, Apple, Games, iPad, iphone, ipod, News, retro, Reviews, space, stars, Sunshine on November 11th, 2011 by quantumsheep

Hello! 😀

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 🙂

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

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 😀

Making bugs in the sun…

Posted in App, App Store, Apple, Games, iPad, iphone, ipod, Music, News, planets, ProjectSOL, retro, science, shmup, Shooter, space, stars, Sunshine on October 19th, 2011 by quantumsheep

Hello all, hope you’re well!

Just wanted to give a quick update on the status of “Sunshine – Here comes the Sun”.

The game has been with testers for over a week now, and I’m listening to all the feedback. Most of it has been very positive, which is lovely!

There are some bugs/niggles though which I’m trying to work through.

The feedback has been awesome though, and I’m excited to nearly be finished (again!).

Seems that when a game is 80% done, there’s always another 80% to go 😉

Anyway, I’m working on it! Keep your eyes peeled for the Sun! 😀

In other news, I’ve finally decided what ‘ProjectCAP’ will be – as in what type of game. That’s a long way off of course, but I’m trying to source the music right now, while also keeping an eye on Air Supply: SOS.

So much to do. So little time!

Here comes the Sun! :D

Posted in art, Games, iPad, iphone, ipod, Music, News, planets, ProjectSOL, shmup, Shooter, space, stars on October 8th, 2011 by quantumsheep

Almost!

Good progress made is the good news coming out of Sheep Towers! The game is done – it works – you can play from start to finish.

I’ve implemented GameCenter leaderboards for each level, and put in the level progression. It’s all *touch wood* working!

I am having some sound issues, and there are about 100 small things that need tidying up. But it’ll be with the testers in the next day or so, just to give it the all clear.

Hopefully submitting by Thursday/Friday this week, for a release the week after.

HOPEFULLY!!!

Fingers crossed, eh?

Here’s another pic to keep you going!


Cheers,

QS 😀

Blimey, this is taking a while!

Posted in App, art, Games, iPad, iphone, ipod, News, retro, screenshots, shmup, Shooter, space, stars, Sunshine on September 27th, 2011 by quantumsheep

Hello everyone!

Sorry for the lack of updates. I’ve been working on Sunshine (!) trying to get it just the way I want it. It’s coming along ok. I’m *hoping* to have something for the testers this weekend.

But then I’ve been saying that for a few weeks now :O

Sorry!

To tide you over, here’s another work in progress screenshot.

Again, it doesn’t give much away, but I hope it intrigues/charms/scares you (delete as applicable!).

Keep looking for the sun! 😀
