It has been long time since our last post, but there is a good reason behind that. We have been very busy building the new update for the game and I’m happy to tell you that it’s just days from finishing!
So what’s coming in the next update? As you already know there will be some new levels and globs. That’s just the beginning
We have implemented the latest OpenFeint 2.2 into our game with a custom Aqua Globs skin and loads of achievements for you to unlock! For those who don’t know what OpenFeint is head over to this site http://www.openfeint.com/players. In general it’s something like Xbox Live, a system which connects you with other people playing Aqua Globs and allows you to see your standings in the High-score tables, how good you’re in unlocking achievements, chat about the game with other players and even become friends with them. It has Facebook and Twitter connectivity as well so you can let your friends know how good you’re!
The other thing we changed is the pause screen. When you paused he the screen was covered with a splash image showing you time and maximum points achieved so far with the option to continue or exit to menu. The huge disadvantage of this screen was that you were not able to see what is happening under and after pausing the game for few hours you would be basically blinded by the screen completely!
We solved this problem by introducing nice small dashboard which will slide into the screen from the bottom when you pause the game, so you can still see what is going on! There are other options on the dashboard as well. On the image you can se (from left to right) exit game button, help button, wave effect enable/disable button, OpenFeint button and finally game continue button.
The last change I want to talk about today is a new level selection screen. You saw the older version in the previous post. We decided to make it in a Apple cover flow style, so you will know how to use it intuitively. Just swipe on the screen to scroll through the level list and tap on a level if you want to play it! Easy, right?
In the next post, which will be in a few days, we will focus more on the new levels and the special globs!
In the meantime please don’t stop supporting us! We really appreciate the great feedback from you and it helps us make the game even better as well!
Feel free to ask any questions you have in the comments, we are reading them every day!!
