What's up!

I am pleased to announce that a playable demo of the first five levels for Galactic Attack will be available on the website very shortly.

I am about to begin working on getting it ready for putting up on the website, playable in your browser using the Unity Web Player plugin. It should be ready in about an hour or so. I'm excited to get some early feedback!

Keep an eye out on the blog or watch our Twitter feed. Follow @PolygonByte for when it's ready.

Galactic Attack - Blog Progress Update #3

Hey, what's up everybody!

Just wanted to post a blog for an update on the progress of Galactic Attack.

I've started working on the integration of Game Center for the leaderboards. That's going well and is integrated with the arcade mode. I have yet to create a leaderboard for the levels.

There is two levels left to make and the final boss. I've got some ideas down for the final boss fight and it is going to be an epic challenge.

There's a few tweaks that need to be made to the user interface design to keep consistency and to integrate the leaderboards.

Unfortunately, I don't have any new screenshots or video to show as I don't want to spoil too much of the end game levels. I'm hoping to get version 1.0.0 (alpha) submitted to App Store by the end of the week. Pending approval time and how long the alpha testing goes (I'm planning no more than a week), it's looking like it may be closer to the end of October, hopefully week 3.

What's up everyone!

So I had hoped to post this blog a week earlier but unfortunately I didn't get a chance to get it up.

As we are nearing closer to October, the launch date for Galactic Attack is coming up very soon here. I am super excited to launch the game and I hope everyone is excited to play it.

Since the last blog post, I've got a bunch of progress made. I have decided to re-design the user interface to fit more closely with the style of the game. Check out the new main game screen:

Also, if you have not seen the pre-launch teaser trailer yet, check it out on the new official Galactic Attack website here: www.galacticattack.com

I've got about 10 new levels that have been completed and a new boss. Here's what the new boss looks like:

In game, it obviously looks almost 4x as big.

I've got about 8 of the extra levels to complete and the final boss. A few extra UI stuff to create such as checkboxes, sliders, and volume controls. Once the rest is implemented (my goal is within two weeks), the game will go into alpha release for testing and then readied for final launch. It's looking pretty good to hit a mid to late October release but that is pending final approval from Apple.

Galactic Attack and the New Blog!

What's up everyone!

First off, welcome to the new blog page. I hope that this will allow me to make more regular updates to the page and update progress on the games I am working. So, to start, I'd like to kick things off with some progress on my new game for iPhone and iPad, Galactic Attack.

Here's a list of some of the new features that have been added since the last video preview.
- Lots of core gameplay tweaks to help balance the overall gameplay
- Added new weapon and shield powerup icons
- Entirely re-designed user interface (now uses NGUI!)
- Added social media integration (FB, Twitter, and SMS)
- Three difficulty levels: Easy, Normal, and Hard
- All new camera shake effect when aliens are destroyed

The game is set go into an alpha-release very soon. Here are some of the planned features for the final build that will hit the App Store soon (I don't have a solid date set yet).
- 20 playable levels, with 2 bosses
- 40 extra unlockable levels (2 individual level packs, 20 levels each, and 2 bosses each)
- One shot powerups to clear harder difficulty levels
- Full arcade mode that will be integrated with all aliens from all 60 levels
- Awesome music (already integrated)
- With 60 levels, there should be about 50 different aliens to destroy! Both in arcade mode and solo levels
- Full integration with Game Center for high scores, so you can compete and compare highscores with your friends and family

I am really excited about this project and I hope you are too!
But now I'm sure you just want to see the game! More updates will come soon.
