GameCenter comes to Air Supply!

Posted in Air Supply, App, App Store, Apple, Games, iphone, ipod, Music, retro, sci-fi, Shooter, space on May 18th, 2011 by quantumsheep

“Finally!” I hear you exclaim!

Indeed!

My little game now has GameCenter. A whole new world of addiction for seasoned Air Supply players, and a nice incentive for new players as they unlock colours!

I did something a little different. The scores submitted to GameCenter are based, of course, on how far you run. But there are leaderboards for every colour, for both Air Supply mode and Fuel Supply mode 😀

Additionally, these two modes have an ‘overall’ score. So whichever colour’s your favourite that you like to play with, you’ll get a score for. And if it’s the highest score of all the colours unlocked, that will be put into the overall score for that mode!

It’s already got me addicted and playing my own game more and more trying to beat people’s scores when I should really be working!

Thanks for playing, and I hope you all enjoy it!

😀

Posted in Air Supply, App, App Store, Apple, Games, iphone, ipod, sci-fi, space, stars on April 26th, 2011 by quantumsheep

Yay!

Many thanks to our Apple overlords who have featured Air Supply in their ‘What we’re playing’ section in a few countries! It’s greatly appreciated!

More and more people are playing the game, which is wonderful! I hope you’re all enjoying it! 😀

There will be more updates to Air Supply in due course, and a rather nice surprise too! Meanwhile, Air Supply – SOS is currently in full production, and we hope to have that out in about a month for iPad and maybe even Mac.

It’s a brand new adventure for Spaceman Sam, and we hope you’ll enjoy it!

😀

Turning up the heat! Twice! :D

Hello everyone! 😀

In continuing the commitment towards Air Supply with another update – 1.2 is out now and features:

*Added a new short and sweet track by Mister Beep – this gives the game an awesome 1bit soundtrack of 8 chiptunes in total.
*Added user requested option to allow buttons to remain visible. This can be found in ‘options’ under ‘control settings’
*Added ability to adjust opacity of ‘always visible’ control graphics.
*Reduced amount of stats visible at game end. You can still see the full stats by pressing the button in the top right hand corner of the game over screen.
*reduced loading times slightly
*Some tiny bug fixes

A tiny sneak peek of v1.3 can be found on the arcadelife website here.

Hope you like it and I’m working hard to get the 1.3 to you all as soon as I can! 😀

In addition, Air Supply is listed under ‘What’s Hot’ in both arcade and action categories on iTunes US!

You know what’s fun about that?

Well, in the ‘action’ category, Air Supply is joined by another Quantum Sheep game – Gravitrixx! 😀

Check it out below, top left, bottom right!

I hope they get along!

Thanks to everyone who bought the game and to Apple for the continued support! 😀

Another Air Supply review rolls in!

Posted in Air Supply, App, App Store, art, Games, iphone, ipod, New and Noteworthy, News, retro, sci-fi, science, screenshots, shmup, Shooter, space, stars on March 9th, 2011 by quantumsheep

Hello lovely people!

We’ve had another awesome Air Supply review over at technobrains.com

You can read it here.

Some choice quotes for you:

“The graphics in Air Supply are deliciously retro. And I’m not talking about that garbage where people draw really poor graphics and call it “old school”. It’s clear that a lot of effort was put into making the graphics look like they belong on a pre-NES console. What it proves to me is that such graphics could actually look pretty cool!”

“The bottom line is that this game rocks! As it is I’ve become strangely drawn to this genre of game, but Air Supply has kicked my obsession to a new level. I love the look, I love the music, and I love trying to unlock all the unlockables.”

“If you do not own this gem yet, go out and buy it now.”

We’re so excited and humbled by the overwhelmingly positive response the game has got since launch on Friday!

Thank you everyone that bought it, played it, enjoyed it, reviewed it and then wrote to us to tell us!

Cheers!

Air Supply is available on the App Store now, and can be found here.

Air Supply reviewed!

Posted in Air Supply, App, App Store, art, Games, iphone, ipod, New and Noteworthy, News, retro, sci-fi, shmup, Shooter, space, stars on March 8th, 2011 by quantumsheep

Hello lovely people!

The equally lovely people at ‘Allabouthtegames’ posted their thoughts on our latest game, Air Supply, which you can find here:

All About The Games Air Supply Review

Some choice cuts:

“For a game that’s supposed to represent a quick ten minute blast, it’s surprising how easy it is to soak up hour after hour playing Air Supply.”

“Levels are varied enough to make you wonder just how tough it can get later on, and what nastiness the alien world will throw at you next. ”

“there’s plenty of fun to be had for the single player with achievements a-plenty to find as well as the lure of each episode of jump-shootery mayhem.”

“It’s a great little game, and if your i-Device is already chock full of delicious little distractions like this, there’s definitely room for one more in the shape of Air Supply. ”

In additional news, Air Supply has been featured by Apple in New and Noteworthy ‘Arcade’ and ‘Action’ categories!

Thank you everyone for your support! We hope Air Supply finds a place in your heart (and iphone) soon! 😀
