Did some work on the on the playership and pickup objects.

It's funny how much updating graphics can change the feel of the game.




I also did a spanking explosion effect for the blackball explosion, I'll show it off on the next update.

Bought iOS developer license yesterday.

Pretty cool, though quite laggy, need to start optimizing my stuff soonish.

Congratulations 4s4, on completing your game!  You've created a really nice polished game entirely with playmaker!  Truly inspirational.  I wish i was able to stay focused enough to take more of my projects through to completion. 

Any chance you could do a post mortem and talk about some of the playmaker related game development do's and don'ts you discovered during the process?

We'd love to learn from your experiences.

Thanks people! I'm just finishing up the press contacts, I've sent about 12 reviews copies just today to different indie game sites. Few coverage yet and even fewer sales, luckily I'm not really doing this to get rich :D

Anyways, I'm thinking of doing a demo, maybe that would boost the sales a bit, demo should be available today or early tomorrow, It's just hard to decide what to show in a demo for a game like this. I might show too much or too little, oh well.
