Oh yes, today is the day. My new game Lightspeed Bit Bit is now available on the Apple App Store for the iPhone and iPod Touch! I like the art style a lot, as well as the gameplay, design, music and the controls. Well yea there’s no holding it back with this one, I’m a big fan of the entire game. I started developing this game back in April 2011, but I took a couple of breaks away from it to develop and release 4 other apps. So yea 2011 was a busy year for me. I had a lot of fun working on Lightspeed Bit Bit and I learned a lot about game design and development while working on it.
The fact that I’ve never played anything like it before helped make the entire process more exciting. Everything that you see and hear on the game was created by me. Even though I’ve heard the music for it probably hundreds of times I still like listening to all of it. There were a lot of late nights that I spent working on this game in the past few months and I’m excited for its release on the App Store. So far the responses from the people who’ve seen or played it have been very positive. I’m very proud of this game and I think it’s awesome. Well without further ado or adieu, I present to you, Lightspeed Bit Bit.
Lightspeed Bit Bit is a futuristic retro neon stylized arcade game that’s for dedicated gamers and casual gamers who like to be challenged. The simple one finger control makes it easy for anybody to pick up and play, but the challenge varies depending on your skill and what mode you’re playing. Lightspeed Bit Bit has three unique game modes.
Bit Bit Mode: This is the main mode of the game. There are three difficulties-Easy, Medium, and Insane. Your ship loses a little bit of health every second and also when you collect the wrong color bit. You must collect bits that match the color of your ship to add to your health and score. Your ship randomly changes color and each ship has its own personal chiptune music theme. There are also power-ups that randomly appear. There is a Gamecenter leaderboard for each difficulty.
Obstacle Mode: Your goal in this mode is to reach the finish line. Each level has 3 stars that can be collected if you want to challenge yourself. Watch out for the cosmic blocks, they do massive damage.
One Bit Mode: This mode is locked until you meet or surpass a certain score on Bit Bit Mode. This mode has the same concept as Bit Bit Mode, except there’s only one difficulty…….Brutal. Your ship changes color every time you get the correct color bit, but if you get the wrong color bit…..it’s gameover…….until you press restart.
Lightspeed Bit Bit is a fun & intense game with quick and smooth one finger controls that has unique immersive gameplay. This is a game that you can pick up and play anytime. I’ll see you on the leaderboards.
