Hi fellow Stencylers,

We have finished our first game in Stencyl and it is live on the AppStore.

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/we-come-in-pieces/id651388650?ls=1&mt=8

Please grab it, give it a play and let us know what you think!!!

The story is Sparky, an alien, has crash-landed on Earth and you need to help him find the pieces of his spaceship to return home. As he is electrified, you blow him around with two fans at the bottom of the screen using your thumbs.

Watch the Trailer Video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9o5PiZ8QEo

There are 50 levels spread across 5 worlds. The colours of the items you need to collect are all green in world one, but increase with one colour per world, and you need to change the colour of Sparky to match the item or he will take damage. By World 5, there are 5 colours you need to be changing Sparky to.

The graphics have a 60's-Retro feel and it has a custom soundtrack by http://www.czarina.com.au

We have released for free with Ads (iAds) at the bottom of the Level Select and Win/Lose screen, and 30 levels, and provide an in-app purchase for $0.99 to remove the Ads and unlock all 50 levels. I would be very interested to hear thoughts on this model.

We started this in v2.2 but migrated to v3.0 early on so the migration was painless. Since then, v3.0 has had some issues, understandably as its still in Beta, but it has steadily progressed to where it is now working really really well for us. One of our biggest problems was that multi-touch buttons would sometimes get stuck, and the game used to crash consistently on an iPod Touch 4. These appear to no longer be bothering us and the toolkit it awesome. In my opinion, Stencyl 3.0 is, and will be, a stellar product.

Thanks for looking,
Cheers,
Ando
Pixcellent.

Hi guys, this is now released on the AppStore: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/we-come-in-pieces/id651388650?ls=1&mt=8

We would be very grateful if you have a moment to install it, play it and give us some feedback!! (Also a review on the AppStore would be ace!)

We got rejected once because we have In-App Purchases, but didn't provide a "Restore Purchases" button. We added that, and then all passed with Stencyl 3. Mind you, we added full-screen graphics for iPhone5 and use a combination of "Perfect Fit" with the hack to Universal.hx which allows it Full Screen.

Cheers,
Ando.
