Lemmings inspired game - Beta tester
« on: October 24, 2014, 08:46:18 pm »
Hi there,

I'm an indie mobile app developer from Germany and I really liked the good old Lemmings.  :thumbsup:
I love the old games because in my opinion the aspect of "thinking" got lost in new games.

Since 1 year I develop an app like Lemmings and I would love to get some feedback before I release the app.

Story:
Firstly I tried to find a character that behaves like lemmings and follows the other into every situation :-)
I decided to use zombies because we all know them as stupid and brainless creatures.
So the story behind the game is to lead the zombies to the house where they can find fresh brain  :P

Monetization:
At the moment there are no ads inserted but I plan to add Google AdMob.
I really don't like ads but I think 1 year development should allow me to earn some coins.
There will also be a possibility to remove the ads via in-app purchase.

Other:
- all lemmings actions included (floater, builder, digger...)
- currently 50 levels
- 1 to 3 star rating / level (depending on time and saved zombies)
- many different backgrounds
- parallax effect

Plans:
- include better instructions at the beginning (So even someone who doesn't know Lemmings can understand the game)
- translate instructions into Spanish, French, Italian...
- improve sound
- include level 50-65 (I think 65 levels should be enough for the release, but don't hesitate if you think there should be more levels)
- improve stairs builder zombie

Currently it is available for Android only but I'm investigating in getting it as a beta version on iOS as well.

If you are interested in being a beta tester please send me your Google Mail address so I can add you to the Google+ Community of this app. If you are part of the Google+ Community I can invite you as beta tester and you can download the app via the PlayStore.

Hope you'll enjoy the game and perhaps you can support me to solve and find the remaining bugs (I hope there aren't many left) :)

Don't hesitate and contact me if you have any question. :thumbsup:

Best

I'll volunteer to beta test. I have google+ account but never use it

I am intrigued by this parallax effect; I'll just warn that a background that is very flashy distracts from the foreground/level and play area. It's best (imo) to have the background be as simple or as dark or easy on the eyes as possible. The fore ground should stand out easily. I haven't looked at it yet so I'm not judging.  :)
