Hey everyone "Space Chase" is just about ready for the play store, all i need now is a few people to test my little game out.

Yes that's right I. NEED. BETA. TESTERS!!

 

"Space Chase" is a dodge type game where you play as a ship dodging all types of obstacles, that are randomly generated in real time.

This game was also originally created for the GMC 9 Jam.

 

If you want to or are willing to test my game, Please send me a PM and i will send you a .Apk file.

Note if i give you the .apk file you need to give me feedback and/or screenshots of anything that you think might be out of place, looks wrong, needs to be fixed or redone.

 

Here are a few Screenshots:

Here's a review thingy.

Good:
- I like the idea. It's well-paced and pretty fun.
- Graphics are nice to look at.
- The controls are easy to understand and are good enough to play the game with.
- Endless mode is cool.

Not so good:
- Diagonal movement doesn't work if you hit both keys at once. You have to hit one key before the other, and if you let go of a key, you keep moving diagonally.
- I honestly wasn't a fan of the music. It was okay, but it didn't really fit the game's fast-paced nature. I appreciate that you have the option to shut it off.
- The shockwave continues to advance if you pause the game.
- Pausing doesn't work after you do it enough times.

Suggestions:
- If there's one thing I'd like to see, it's more levels. This is a pretty cool game, but it only started getting hard around level 3.
- Having an attack to shoot the asteroids or something.
- The camera should be slightly above the ship, so you can easily see what's directly in front of you without the ship blocking the way.
- A "Distance Travelled" or "Time Survived" thing in endless mode would be neat.

hey, thanks for the review thingy and Suggestions,
i will fix as much as i can and try out a few of your Suggestions,
i wanted this game to be 100% mine so i made the music and so it might not be so great :(/>/>
thanks for the reply :)/>/>

- Pausing doesn't work after you do it enough times.

i don't see what you mean? (you can press the esc key to resume the game)

 The game feels like it should be a little more fast-paced. The music feels a bit too slow and doesn't really fit the mood. Here's a track I made a while back that you can use if you want.

Anyways, the new screens look great! Looks like it'd make a great mobile game. Good luck!

Cool game would be great for mobile seeing how the levels are good for a short play through. I think you could add a mode where you can control your guy with the mouse, and for on mobile it would be just sliding your finger a crossed the screen instead of using the on screen analog sticks (that could be optional) also be sure to add rumble to the mobile version too, Anyways good game so far!

Space Chase, the Mobile version, i started from scratch in game maker studio, so is already quite different to the original and the speed is a lot faster than the original, and thanks for your comment.

The ship doesn't tile up and down know but only left and right? It would be cool to have to spin to dodge things too maybe not sure if you meant to do that, or it's not working right yet?

 

Anyways I like the music though. I listen to Venomous track while I played the game with the background music muted and didn't like it as much what's already picked. I think the creepy music fits in to the fact you're flying a ship and trying to avoid hitting rocks and getting blown up  So a more creepy fast paced music that might fit in space? Only issue there is now someone might not like a ship for one and the music for the other.

 

So many question uh? lol.

Hello!

well i have been working on Space Chase Mobile, and it is almost about ready to be seen.

but not without some testing first.

i need a few people with an android device or any that has access to the androids Play Store to send me a PM with the model of your phone to test my game, and give me feedback on graphics, glitches, fps spikes and so on.

this would help me a great deal, thanks.

here are a few Screenshots:

PS. some of the button graphics will be changed.
