    So let me get this straight, you run around squashing rats with an ox? And that's it? :confused:

    Looks good graphically :)

    we're working on an update with alternative game modes, but if you expect much more of a 99c game, then sorry to disappoint, we only have this much time before Chinese New Year.

    Don't sell yourself too short. Your graphics are really quite good, and the animations are excellent, and the game has a really nice pace and tone to it. If you could make a platformer out of it without sacrificing those things, I think you could easily have a $6-10 game on your hands that would sell really well. There really aren't good games of that genre for the iPhone right now.

    I saw a gameplay video on apptheater, and thought it was cool. Maybe you could have a giveaway of promo codes soon. I would definitely be willing to put in my opinion of the game. Thanks and good job.

    Edit: Appthater is suppose to be Apptheater

    Thanks for the feedback! We're definately not wasting the assets and code we created, but we have a bigger project in mind for the future, its at a brainstorming stage so far, but will be much bigger than this, and will be a full on game.
    for now, we just learnt how the whole process works and what it takes us to create something like this, being our first game.
    thanks!

    do you wana write a review and spread the word? :p may have some! ;)

    clarify your intents please. contact us at magenta@zenbe.com

    this is bizzare, to have pm available after some posts. i'm sure its antispam measure, but pm's are like very important haha... some people even sign up only to pm someone etc.. gah. ok. keep posting then. i hope it doesnt take more than 20 posts to activate lol...
