.Matrixx on the way…

Posted in .Matrixx, App, App Store, dot matrix, Games, Gravitrixx, iPad, Music, News on June 29th, 2011 by quantumsheep

Hey all, hope you’re well!

I’ve been working on .Matrixx (dotmatrix) for over a month now, and it’s nearly done!

Nearly!

I’m just waiting on some art for the unlockable backgrounds and player avatars!

Soon as I get them, I’ll be submitting to the app store – but the release date is likely to be July 16th (to allow for Apple review, and to avoid the inevitable ‘big boy’ sales over July 4th).

The game’s an endless collect/avoid ’em up for the iPad – and it’s bloody addictive, even if I do say so myself!

For now, here’s the splash screen!

A thank you to Japan, and a new game to boot!

Posted in Air Supply, App, App Store, Apple, Games, Gravitrixx, iPad, iphone, ipod, retro on June 14th, 2011 by quantumsheep

Hello everyone! Hope you’re all well!

Just wanted to let people know that I’ve been working on an iPad game recently and it’s shaping up very nicely!

I’m hoping to get a build out to a few testers over the weekend, if not before, with a submission to Apple soon after.

It’s called .Matrixx (DotMatrix) and it’s a ‘prequel’ of sorts to Gravitrixx, the Tron inspired puzzle game.

It has a similar look, but plays completely differently as it’s an ‘endless’ survival game!

A high score is the name of the game here, with Game Center support, and I’m just adding some unlocks and achievements too.

The soundtrack’s pretty special as well, as you’d come to expect from little old me! ๐Ÿ˜€

More details to come soon!

In addition to all this, Air Supply is still doing reasonably well for a game that’s now over three months old! Bless it! I hug it every night to say ‘thanks’!

And I’d like to say ‘thanks’ to everyone who’s tried the game out! It really means the world to me that so many people have enjoyed the game!

Indeed Japan, in particular, seems to have taken Air Supply to their hearts! As I write, it’s still in the Japanese charts, and that is just simply awesome!

Mainly because I don’t speak any Japanese ( ๐Ÿ™ ), and therefore can’t really ‘market’ the game there.

I imagine it’s just word of mouth, so thank you, Japan! It’s very much appreciated!

More news soon! 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˜€

Air Supply gets some Fuel Supply in version 1.3 :D

Posted in Air Supply, App, App Store, Apple, Games, iphone, ipod, News, retro, screenshots on April 11th, 2011 by quantumsheep

Hello everyone! Hope you had a great weekend!

I spent mine finishing off version 1.3 of Air Supply!

Yay!

I just finished submitting it to Apple, so hopefully will be with you all very soon!

Anyway, here’s a quick rundown:

Version 1.3:

New mode! “Fuel Supply”

A whole new mode! Spaceman Sam has recovered his spaceship, but wouldn’t you know it, he’s sprung a fuel leak!

*Your ship is constantly being dragged down towards the planet – keep your altitude up by pressing on the left hand side of the screen!
*Keep your Fuel Supply up by collecting the ‘F’ symbols!
*Look out for UFOs and Flying Aliens!
*Avoid the deadly meteorites – they cannot be shot down, so avoid them!
*Select the new mode at the bottom of the Unlocks Selection screen.
*Three new achievements to attain!

And here’s a quick screenshot of the new mode in action:

I hope you enjoy playing it!

Some exciting updates planned for 1.4 and beyond – stay tuned, earthlings, and thanks very much for playing!

A couple more reviews are in! And we love them! :D

Posted in Air Supply, App, App Store, art, Games, iphone, ipod, Music, News, retro on April 8th, 2011 by quantumsheep

Hello, lovelies! Hope you’re well! ๐Ÿ˜€

I got a couple more reviews in for Air Supply – and they’re both a jolly good read!

First up is a pocketgamer.co.uk review, which you can find here.

Some snippets:

“It’s fast, familiar, and fun, giving you everything you want in an endless runner.”

“Air Supply has enough charm and good content to make stand with the best endless running games”

And secondly, here’s a very ‘deep’ review from KillScreen. It’s beautifully written, and I really enjoyed reading it, and hope you do too!

Air Supply is currently available for iphone and ipod touch, here.

Thanks everyone! The adventure continues! ๐Ÿ˜€

Turning up the heat! Twice! :D

Posted in Air Supply, App, App Store, Apple, Games, Gravitrixx, iphone, ipod, puzzle, retro, space, stars on April 1st, 2011 by quantumsheep

Hello everyone! ๐Ÿ˜€

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 โ€“ 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 โ€˜optionsโ€™ under โ€˜control settingsโ€™
*Added ability to adjust opacity of โ€˜always visibleโ€™ 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! ๐Ÿ˜€

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! ๐Ÿ˜€

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! ๐Ÿ˜€

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 Iโ€™m not talking about that garbage where people draw really poor graphics and call it โ€œold schoolโ€. Itโ€™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 Iโ€™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! ๐Ÿ˜€
