Last week kinda sucked. We were all pysched to put out "Caught with Your Pants Down" and then we were pretty much CAUGHT WITH OUR PANTS DOWN. We test our game in what is called "debug" mode....but then somehow didn't get the "Release" build tested on a 2.2 device, and BOOM, CRASH, POW.
Apple was really nice to let us quickly swap back in "Bait Master" to avoid new users downloading a crashing app. As a result, the usual bump in sales we got, of course, didn't happen. But at least people weren't paying their buck for an app that wouldn't stay open. Sorry to make everyone wait.
So on Touch Arcade, Dave reveals the details of the current episode "Sharks, with Frickin' Laserbeams Attached To Their Heads". There are several misquotes of the line out there (sharks with fricken lasers attached to their heads, sharks with lasers attached to their fricken heads"), but I've checked, this title is right. Now, I'm going to give a little background. A few weeks ago, I came across a forum posting somewhere that said they would like Pocket God a lot better if they'd just attach frickin' laserbeams to the shark heads. I showed it to Dave and we both laughed and thought, WE MUST DO IT. Its from Austin Powers and totally awesome. It's a strange cross-pollination, but we thought, what the hell? So there's a new function in the underwater ruins. Dave elaborates:
"When you pick chum out of the bucket, the shark swims with full laser headgear and tries to eat the chum. You can hand the chum to a pygmy at which point they look around with a Panicked look on their face until the shark eats them along with the chum. Also, while the shark is on screen, you have a laser aimer that is controlled by the accelerometer, kind of like Doom Resurrection."But are they illtempered? It's a start!
