    Greetings,

    My first post here and my first iPhone game. A simple turn-based survival game that I call iBots. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

    It looks like a good concept for a puzzle game. I'd recommended spiffing up the graphics a bit (think shinier) and then implementing the rest of the gameplay (for me at least the game ends after every level I beat and no scores are recorded).

    Yeah, it's not very clear what to do when a victory or defeat happens. Press the RESET button (next to the JUMP button) to start a new game and your scores will tally up based on the number of games you played. I'll make this more clear in the next update. Also, I'm re-doing the graphics as you suggested.

    When you said "no scores are recorded" did you mean they are not saved? If so, I'd like to implement this feature once I figure it out.

    iBots update

    Just updated the iBots game with new art and some tweaks to the game-play. The rating is now based on kills, wins and games played. Also, the bots each move independently now instead of all at once so it's a little easier to see what they're doing.

    This is my first attempt at jScript/web programming. I still have a lot to learn. Things I'd like to add is an online high score chart but I have no clue how to allow the scores to be sent to my web server. Anyone have any experience with this? Suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Have to give you grats, this is quite an addictive game, and seems simple :) Could be very good. Have to suggest a more slick interface (more iPhone like I 'd guess) and a instruction/tutorial. This is solely for the reasoning of it took me 2 games to figure out how to play :D

    Still, despite that, keep up the good work! Good job for a first time, We all have to start somewhere :D

    Thanks. Good points here. I'll add instructions to the game which should help to understand it better and will continue to evolve the "look" of the game.

    An update to iBots has been put up on my website. The update includes:

    1. Game state saving (your scores are saved using cookies).
    2. New and updated art (at least new since my last post on here).
