Rocket Sketch launching soon.

(very soon)

Howdy my interplanetary friends!

The launch date of Rocket Sketch is right upon us. We are working in the final polish and we are in the testing stage, dont have a release date yet, but between two or three weeks max!

The big new for the game (besides, again, we changed it’s name) are the new rockets!

There are four types of rockets with their own special skills. All of this skills works in the same way: tap while rocket is flying. Some of them can be activated once, and others many times, depending on the rocket type and level.

Yes, you can upgrade the rockets! You can access to the upgrade store from Endless mode menu, or at the end of each level in endless mode.

This special rockets are in campaing mode too, but their level is not affected by the store’s upgrades.

As i said, there are four types:

Dash Rocket: While in the air, tap and hold to use the nitro to pass through asteroids or simply gain the extra speed.

Cluster Rocket: Tap while flying to fire many clusters from the rocket center to its sides. The number of cluster goes from two to ten, depending on rocket’s level. This clusters will eat paper to gain point.

Dodge Rocket: Tap while flying to chance rockets’s direction. The new direction is the previous angle but to the other side.

Point Bomb Rocket: Tap while flying to explode and eat all the paper around the rocket. Higher level, bigger explosion.

Enigma Rocket: This one will appear only in endless mode. The fifth rocket its a random rocket. At level one, you have 20% chances to get a special rocket level 1 instead the standar rocket. At level five, you have 100% getting a special rocket level 5

 

The endless mode changed a little: now you have to beat each level to advance to the next instead farming points in blocks of ten levels. Its simpler and easy to understad :)

If you cant get throught a level, there is a continue option (for a price). Remember to upgrade your rockets, so you can advance further!

The campaing mode have a new item: The brick. Works the same as the triangle, but this one can be destroyed after three hits max.

We are also introducin a mini story for the game, staring a little girls called Agnes .

The story is divided by vignettes, one per nine block (nine levels).

There will be fifty four initial levels in campaing mode. We intend to upload nine more levels per week if the profits make it worth.

This is all for now. So, stay tunned! SOOON

New Isologotype!

Time flies like an arrow, and that arrow was poiting right to our old triple spiral logo.

Yes, the old Shoor‘s logo didn`t age well and was unnecessarily complex.
The new version got ride of all round shapes, both in the logo and in the typography. Now the isologotype have a clear alignment, the main color still is the same orange, but now have a little blue and a lot of beige.

The three spirals still are there, all fused in one, with more color and pretty bulky.

Hope you like it!

Sketch Rockets

poster Sketch Rockets

Sketch Rockets is the new name for Aldebaraan.
Despite how much i like the old name, the truth is that name is no good for commercial purpuses.

The new name will be lunched along the new massive update for the game, with new engine, a brand new In App Store and lots of new things!

In the store you can buy Coins. Coins is the ingame currency to unlock maps, to buy extra lives in endless mode or to purchase upgrades for your rockets.

Coins can be also obteined by simply play maps in campaing mode or endless. There may be a daily map for extra coins.
The new campaign mode is builded in blocks of nine maps. Each block must be unlocked with stars (wich you win in each map according of how much points you make) or with coins.

Hope you like the new version of Sketch Rockets!

More stars in the sky

Merry Xmas to you! and you, and that guy behind the walls! Our present for yall is a new update for Aldebaraan!

Yes, its not a BIG update, neither a small one.

  • 18 new levels
  • 2 new items
  • Updated UI
  • Some minor bugs fixed

One of the new items is a portal. Classic funcionality: You enter from one side and get teleported to the other side. The outcoming angle of the ship its the portal’s angle. This gives the game a lot of new combinations and crazy situations.

teleport

The second item is the random moon. When a ship hit it, it gets destroyed and a random item will appear in its place, even a new random moon could appear.

It also gives the ship a random value to its power. May be rest a lot of power, a little, or give it a boost.

randomplaneta

You can find these new items at level 46 and above!

Keep reaching the stars!

 

Tunning the arcade machine

In Shoor we make games for love. We try to make money out of it, but really this is all about love. Love for the games, for that old magic that use to pop up from our eyes when we were little childs in front of an arcade. Just standing there, watching “the machine” playing.

Today i raise you this: The SHOOR ARCADE MACHINE!

15288708_1161691280574466_7511872820053689466_o

We plan to use it for events, mainly for 80 Boxes. But as you can notice its a “generic shoor” themed vynil, so we can show as many games as we want on it.

There still little details to polish, like the color of the buttoms and handles, time will get it done.

And…. in a dark place, a Shoor Arcade exclusive game is being forged.

Soon

More words about the Astronaut

Greetings travelers! Today I’m sharing more info about The Dead Astronaut’s House.

As I’ve already told you, it will be a short game. It can take you some time between 5 or 60 minutes, it’s all about how much you explore the story behind the walls.

colorada-805x1030

Yes, there is a redhead wondering over there.

rojja

The Dead Astronaut’s House is a story of redemption. It is also a story of love. But in fact, it really is a story about a mysterious god and his childish will.

This will be the first part of many stories: a big series will be revealed along many games, videos, comics and written stories.

In the meanwhile, here is a tech demonstration. It’s an early stage of the scenario, but it’s a pretty accurate demonstration of the intended atmosphere for the game.

 

 

FEBO

Hi there! While the time pass by, I feel like my body grows larger and, thereby, my gravitation force.
Based on this gravity matter, and the Dark and Light theme of the Rikoshe Mobile Game Jam, I created Febo, a gravitation-based game… for the Jam.

Also, the shiny star got some inspiration from UnicornPlanet

Febo poster
Febocaratula

In Febo you must bring light to those poor planets lost in the deep darkness of space, and keep them in a warm orbit around your star.

That’s it, take your star, get it close to the planet so it can be attracted by it’s gravity influence, and make the planet orbit not too close, not too far of your star.

In your adventure as a Galactic Lightbringer, you will find some stuff like lost astronauts, large planets, black holes, and a piece of dark chocolate.

You can play it here, Scirra’s Arcade page

And maybe, some day it will be a complete game for mobile.

See you with more news next week, if we survive that giant worm that is chasing us.

Introducing: Aldebaraan

navecitasHello folks, let me introduce the first of many casual games that we are planning to release along the year: Aldebaraan.

The mechanics are simple: you have to score points, how do you score points?

  • Making your spaceships travel the longest distance possible without exploding.
  • Extra points for reaching outer space (top of the screen)
  • Making the ship bounce
  • Picking up space cookies

tabletsThere are obstacles in the way of the ship to the firmament. If you crash with some of these objects, you will explode, or get stuck, lose power, bounce or gain propulsion.

If you reach the goal score, you’ll advance to the next level, otherwise, you will suffer an eternal agony in the deep dark space, kind of.

In order to get the goal score, each level has 10 missions which points are summed up.

The game will be in the Google Play Store very soon!
