My game FishMoto is on the App Store!

BORKED

Download link

Spread the word! FishMoto is here! Buy it!

My first iPhone game is out -- it's an homage to the cult classic Elasto Mania. Part racing, part platformer, and part physics puzzler all wrapped in a crazy package. You play as an electric catfish driving a motorbike through a world of surreal physics and crazy terrain. The art style is a unique hybrid cartoon/craft aesthetic -- the environment objects are also rendered in a way that makes them look like they're drawn with colored pencil (looks best in motion).

The goal of the player is to collect all the fishies trapped in plastic baggies and reach the goal in the shortest time possible (without breaking the fishbowl). What makes FishMoto different than other 2D bike games on iPhone are the surreal physics -- things can pass right through the body of the bike, which means you can grip the road with your tires from any angle and squeeze your fishbowl through tight spaces that would otherwise be impossible. Clever thinking is a requirement for the harder levels and creativity will greatly improve your times in all levels.

My goal was to create a game that everyone would be attracted to while also making something with real gameplay -- FishMoto isn't another cheap casual game; the gameplay is deep enough to supply real replay value.

You're an electric catfish on a rescue mission! Part racing, part platformer, and part physics puzzle all wrapped in an exciting, colorful package. Using your electric pulses to control a stretchy motorbike, your job is to rescue all the fish trapped in baggies and reach the exit as fast as you can without breaking your bowl. I like to describe the physics as being ‘surreal’ -- they make for some crazy fun gameplay and the harder levels really make you think outside the box to get to the finish. Finding ways to exploit the crazy physics to improve your time becomes extremely addicting! Can you master the world of FishMoto?

Features include:
☆ Surreal physics that stretch your imagination
☆ Super cute graphics and unique art style
☆ Dozens of crazy levels to satisfy all skill levels with more to come in the future!
☆ Game Center leaderboards so you can compete for the best times
☆ Gravity changing baggie fish
☆ Funny sound effects that will ensure a fun time even while you crash
☆ Level decorations generated procedurally so levels look slightly different each time you play
☆ Original music ♪ or you can listen to your own music in the background
☆ Precise controls with adjustable transparency
☆ Levels can be rendered in 2D or 3D
☆ More features coming soon!

What the hell, I bought it

Edit: Mute doesn't actually mute the game ambient sounds. Should probably fix that.

Well done, sir, you have done something I am far too lazy to do as a creative person: create a product and bring it to market in a decent amount of time.
