As some of you already know, Timo wrote on the blog earlier that Mountain Sheep had hired some new staff for various tasks and jobs. So here I am! :) My work here at MS includes viewing and commenting the blog every now and then among other things. Nice to be here and I hope I don't forget to mention some things about Minigore as it is a bit new game to me still. I've been spending some time studying the game and reading past posts and comments and I hope I don't miss anything important. If I do, have mercy...
So, as my first post here I'd like to introduce the Totems as a new feature. The totems are going to be present when you start the game and by shooting one of the three you will choose the difficulty setting you would like to have. After the selection the Totems will disappear and the hordes of furries will come as before. I think Timo made a great work with them and I think it's a nice improvement to the old choosing method. Here's a pic:
Also as you can see this shot also introduces some other changes. Instead of showing clovers at the upper left corner there will be health shown in the future. This mainly because some characters are not going to have only 3 lives but 5. This new health system will be used in the upcoming multiplayer. This will make it easier to see the current situation without having to remember the changes in the character models. The clovers will be shown at the center of the screen when you pick up one and then they will vanish until you pick up another one. Also the place where the score used to be will be featuring kills from now on. The kills mechanism works a bit different compared to the score before. When in beast mode you will be given a 2x multiplier for the furries you kill, so instead of the old system you get twice the "score" during beast mode. Also for killing the big furries you get more kills than from the small ones.
As a new member to the community and to the Mountain Sheep I also wanted to offer some promotional codes for you to use. By using the code you will be able to download Minigore HD on iPad for free. It would be nice if the people fast enough to get the code would also write a bit of a review on iTunes about it, thank you very much :). If you use a code, also make a comment telling others which codes are used so people can pick up theirs without the unnecessary trial and error method :)
P.s. Almost forgot. Update for retina -display and improved frame rate is in review. The improved frame rate IMHO is a big update and substantially improves the enjoyment of this game. Frame rate affected models: iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 3rd gen, iPhone 4.
