    Target Squash

    Hello Guys,
    I've been a little gone lately but I have been working on my next great attempt at pleasing Apple into allowing me an application on the App Store without it violating any ridiculous rules.​

    I have developed a crude version of Tribal although it plays just as well if not better the UI is all that remains. I don't know what anyone thinks because this is the first time I have discussed it anywhere other than My Twitter like fifteen minutes ago.​

    So, heres what I have got.


    Basics
    You must destroy targets by tapping them as rapidly as you can before they fade/shrink away. By destroying targets you will receive points depending on the target, the chain of targets you have hit or the difficulty you are playing on. Once your score has arrived at a certain point you will advance to the next level and your screen will begin to contain more targets at once and more rapidly. You can loose by [undecided].

    I am not sure when it will be submitted to the App Store.

    I still need to know a few things:
    $ people will offer
    who will download
    who will actually play
    opinions and suggestions


    Thank you.

    Looks very interesting! I say $2-$4 is a good price
    Lose by missing 10 or 20 targets

    Very glad to hear that, I was thinking 5 targets for easy 10 for medium and 20 for hard.

    Looks nice. But since Tribal has already been released, try to make it cheaper or to have a slight twist on the gameplay because of Tribal's complete and total awesomeness.

    You could make an animation for the targets. So if you tap a target, an arrow will fly onto it. 2-3 bucks is a good price, I think.

    2-3 dollars, looks really nice, i would definitely buy it, as long as its interesting and something u can do for hours without getting bored. Add some animations or details and maybe some extra "options" such as unlimited arrows or something like that, and have a high scrore list too so u can know how your doing. It would be cool if theres trophys too, such as getting a certain amount of hits, u can unlock something.
