Super Bit Dash for the Xperia Play

January 29, 2012

Good news for those who take mobile gaming very very serious (serious enough that you demand a controller). We at Fakepup are hard at work on the Xperia Play optimized version of Super Bit Dash.

For those living under a rock, the Xperia play is the Playstation phone, Sony’s wonder phone that slides open to reveal a gamepad. It’s a beauty and Super Bit Dash already plays great with the D-pad. It’s funny to see  a game we promoted as not having a clunky virtual d-pad working really well with a physical d-pad – oh the irony.

With the D-pad you wont just play the game but also navigate the menus.

This is a Mockup of the store, if we can get it to work in under two weeks that is. That is our deadline – two weeks to have it running flawlessly. It looks a bit crowded but we didn’t originally consider physical controls so we are doing our best with the assets we have.

Of course those wanting to tap the buttons on screen and play by swiping the finger on the screen can still do so, but the D-pad offers a great deal more control. No excuse not to have your name on the top 10 highscores now. Unless you are Farmviller… Are you?

December 14, 2011

A new Challenge for fans! If Super Bit Dash reaches Top 100 Free Games in your country’s Appstore we will make a themed character and put it in the game. It could be a public figure, an historical figure, a stereotype whatever you want!

France is already in since Super Bit Dash reached #74 Top Free on the French Appstore today. In honor of that achievement here are two new characters:
Frenchmen

The stereotypical Frenchmen

Delacroix’s Liberty

Super Bit Dash store

Super Bit Dash’s Store

Unlock a multitude of things in the store. We added IN-App purchases for those who don’t wan’t to wait for any upgrades or characters and also Free Coins (Tapjoy) so you can get more coins fast if you so desire.

We made sure that EVERYTHING is affordable, you can unlock anything just by playing the game. We have players that get 1,000 coins just in one go, so we’re confidant that everybody will be able to enjoy the store. Of course if you feel prices are to low and you unlock things to easily or the other way around please let us know. This game is for YOU. We love you guys and gals!

New Levels

The Vault
one of the 25 new levels

25 new levels will appear in the random roll that decides your path every time you play. We have to apologize for failing our 40 new levels mark as promised. The guy typing this post is responsible for the failed promise but he’ll be sure to deliver the remaining 15 very very soon. Soon.

Sounds

We added sounds to lasers and falling blocks. Bit by bit the game just keeps getting better right? :)

WHAT TOOK US SO LONG?

Android! We are now running on a crossplatform engine that will allow for simultaneous updates on both android and iOS. Not a big thing for you Apple heads but great news for Android users (who will get SBD soon).

This took allot of time and that’s why you haven’t been getting your updates as often. No more excuses though. Prepare for frequent updates because we’ll not rest until we have ONE HUNDRED levels and a new mode for you all to play.

Check  Indie/ModDB next week for we will announce the update as soon as it’s LIVE.

Fan Character Pitches – the first wave

November 28, 2011

So we launched a chalenge/contest a couple weeks back to our followers, fans, and handsome people all around – give us character ideas and we’ll put them in the game. The best will make it into future updates and we already started sketching them out. We got a lot of good ideas and some really really hard ones to get into a 54×54 pixel drawing (a moonwalking hamster with an eye patch and hat???), but we will give them all a go.

So without further ado lets check the few we had the time to sketch.

click to see this proper

We have a Ghost (wip), pink bunny with cigar, escaped convict, invisible man and snowman.

Soon we’ll have more sketches made from YOUR ideas. The best one will make it into the next updates alongside new features and levels. So what are you waiting for? Tell us what do you want to play with in Super Bit Dash!

Pitch YOUR character contest

November 20, 2011

So, we’re adding new characters to the game, no news there. But we also want you to pitch your own character ideas!

Pitch your character ideas

The best ideas will enter a poll so everyone can vote. The lazy designer/artist takes about 2 and a half hours to get a caracte fully animated into the game, so your character might not make it into the first update. If you want, and if your character win, you can even dedicate it to someone and we’ll put it on the credits.

But don’t think we don’t have ideias of our own. Here are the characters so far.

moonman, Lumberjack, Yodeler, Weelie the Robot, Ninja (wip), Caveman (wip)

Giving out Super Bit Dash for free!

 

Like always we need you to help us promote our game. Consider adding us to Twitter  and Facebbok for giveways, news and more contest. We don’t spam and we love you back. Oh, and we’ll be giving out promocodes for you to download our games for free all throughout next week. Another reason to follow us!

Super Bit Dash – update news

November 14, 2011

We’re still hard at work on the next update, we’ll  bring it to you asap! This is what you can expect to find.

New characters

We’ve been drawing and animating new characters that you can unlock with coins. Eventually  we would like to have a ton of different characters that one can collect but for the time being we only have the ones shown on our previous post and our little runner in the yodeler costume. Yodels not included.

New Levels

We’ve also finished 40 new rooms (easy and hard versions) and gave them two different colors. This should help players gauge their progress bettter since, now, each tier in classic mode not only  increases the speed of the character it also changes tile color.

new colors new levels

Translations

We wont be able to translate all the ingame text just now but the Appstore text will be available in French, German, Japanase and Portugese. If you want to help us out and translate it to you own language please email us or comment below :) We’ll appreciate it.

Surprises

We’re also working on power ups and adding a way to brag about your scores in a more apropriate manner. We’re getting alot of feedback and we’ll try to incorporate it all on the following updates.

Devlog #08 New Game Mode

September 8, 2011

Before I get into the new game mode let me just say:

polishing the game takes forever!

The game is fun, the game is playable, but the amount of work that goes into making every little thing work perfectly is insane. And you can’t believe the amount of stuff we left for a future update – from small little animations to full blown features. But more on what’s to come in a future post. Now I’ll show you some new pictures.

The new simpler Main Menu

We now have two modes:

CLASSIC: a random selection of “rooms” is made while loading and they get put together to make a course. Super Bit Dash is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get, except for the fact that you know you’re gonna get some sort of chocolate.

ENDLESS: Every “room” in the game tossed in a random mix. One life. How far can you get before the inevitable happens?

These will be the modes available on launch. Also a selection of about 50 rooms to make each play unique. More will be added briefly after launch. We’ll explain the whole “rooms” concept in a later post.

And to top things off a couple new screenshots from the game. We added in some new stuff, like an aura that let’s you see how short you are on coins and a nice little sonic boom thing that gets left behind when you dash.

Green glass is made to be broken

Coins coins coins!!!

Super Bit Dash is coming soon to iOS. Submission will be next week.

Until then please follow us on Twitter or add us on Facebook to get the latest news.
