Drag Tag Smash HD is finally sent to Apple


We finally got Drag Tag Smash HD out the door (and about time too!).

Hopefully with any luck it will pass Apple's certification and we can then get ahead on our iOS title....Ongaku iOS (working title :P).

If you haven't heard this is a rhythm action game, but this one has the extra added bonus of a music analyser, which right now we have working and it is pretty sweet. AudioSurf eat your heart out ....nar i kid, AudioSurf is great and if we can ever be as popular as that game then I'd be happy.

Hopefully I'll get some art and videos in so we can start showing more of this game (right now the build is pretty rough).

Keep you posted.

Pixel Beat Complete

Hello again...I should really post stuff on here more often, but if I did then I couldn’t get other works done, then people would start firing missiles at me and not the nice kind.

Any who things have been pretty hectic preparing for the recent PR release and all the gubbins to make Ongaku sell at discounted price. Then there’s the stuff with Drag Tag Smash and making sure Openfeint get their assets and stuff all prepared and then there’s all the posting of messages to tell everyone its happening. I need a clone :/.

We’ll like it says on our website, we have a new game in development called ‘Pixel Beat Complete’ and it’s a 2D rhythm action game, which is going to include some nice little RPG bits where you can evolve the game graphics around you and the character. The following text contains advertising like information and product descriptive descriptions describing the product...

Pixel Beat Complete is a fusion of rhythm action and RPG gameplay for iPhone and iPad. Players create and evolve a custom character using music from their iTunes library. Starting off the game as a Pixel, earn EXP Shards from playing levels created from the music, then spend them to either evolve the character’s resolution or buy more music from the iTunes library. When the character evolves, the rest of the game world evolves too, both in terms of graphics and gameplay features. These include the ability to create characters of your friends and keep them in Pixel Place or Pixel Prison. Pixel Beat Complete features:

---Create, Play and Earn
Create avatars and play the game with your choice of music from your iTunes library to earn EXP.

---Unlock Everything!
Spend the EXP to evolve the game-world, from graphics to gameplay.

---Good or Evil; your friends will find out!
Use your camera to collect your friends for Pixel Place or capture them for Pixel Prison.

To go with this we have some early concept video footage here...(please forgive the quality)

O.k. now that you know a little more you are a little wiser for reading :). Oh yeah and we also have a high depth version of Drag Tag Smash for iPad, which is imaginatively named ‘Drag Tag Smash HD’.

Review No.3 for Drag Tag Smash :3

Our 3rd review on, which is a pretty big iPhone review website. Hopefully more big reviewers will do Drag Tag Smash in time *fingers crossed*. The score is 3/5 which isn't perfect, but it is fair and fair enough that you should be taking a look at least.

Please comment here there and everywhere so we can hear your views.

Well done to whoever made the video. All of life's truths wrapped in a 7min video.
