Mazeing (iOS)

  • Hey peeps! I released a new game today:

    http://bit.do/mazeing

    This lofi-minimalism is done to death, I know, but I can't help it. <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_twisted.gif" alt=":twisted:" title="Twisted Evil">

    Apple seems to really like it tho (phew!): https://twitter.com/robotegames/status/639490648605872128

    I used CocoonJS. Worked fine because the game is so tiny. I also have a few promocodes to spare, in case you guys would like to test this for free.

    Psst, I also released this a few days ago in case you need some swipe controls for your mobile game: https://www.scirra.com/store/royalty-fr ... keasy-1258

  • Beautifully little game, massive congrats on the feature! Did you have a contact at apple to help with this, or was it totally out of the blue?

    Thanks, means a lot!

    Apple scans sites like TouchArcade regularly and my earlier games have been covered there. Both of those games were also featured worldwide at launch and I develop exclusively for iOS atm. These are the kind of things that I _think_ help. Apple is a super large company and quite secretive, so your guess is as good as mine.

    That said, I had not heard _anything_ from Apple beforehand and just noticed this when I woke up. I think this time it's a combination of luck and earlier featuring!

    This is old, but still relevant: http://blog.anylistapp.com/2012/08/app-store/

    The other thing is that paid games like Mazeing are a rarity these days and it really seems Apple likes to push us little basement developers to the spotlight every once in a while. Can't complain!

    The features change tonight and only then we'll see is this really happening.

  • Yeah, I definitely feel they're pushing more paid apps lately which is exciting. We definitely want to experiment with a premium app in the future, adverts are just a really crap user experience!

    Love the Sound Effects too btw

  • Love the Sound Effects too btw

    Thanks, that's cool to hear because this was the first game I made all by myself. I also feel the sounds suit the graphics nicely!

  • cool! can i have the promocode?

    Mazeing is doing quite nicely on UK and US charts, cool!

  • Hey dude

    Bought your game and I really like it. The difficulty ramps up nicely and the game keeps things fresh

    I also liked you previous game 'Trambo'.

    Congrats on the feature!!

    PS. Nothing wrong with LO-FI or retro, if it's right (and yours is). They're styles of their own and a lot of the time I prefer playing minimalist looking games, over AAA titles.

    Hey thanks a lot! Much appreciated.

    Yeah, this intentionally crude retro stuff really divides people. Apple likes it and even Chillingo reached out to me on Twitter giving Mazeing some public love. Then there's always those 1-star hate reviews one can't avoid with a game like this.

    Anyways, thanks again!

  • Hi robotecollective

    You can't please everyone

    Just like the line in Wayne's World ... "Led Zeppelin didn't write songs that everybody liked, they left it to the Beatles."

    I reckon, keep making what you love and stay true to yourself, it's obviously working for you!

    Haha, indeed! Already several new titles in the making, we will see what will be the next.

    I am updating Mazeing with some new levels first, tho.

  • Hello! An update just went live: https://appsto.re/fi/J_8i9.i

    12 new levels, Game Center achievements and some more polish.

  • Belated, but I wanted to say congrats on a great launch on iOS.

    Keep it up!
