So for the last year myself and three friends have been working on an iPhone game called Baboom. We just released it on the app store and now busy promoting and marketing it, you can see the press release here. Its been a fun project, the teams been all over the world so we made great use of slack.com a free platform for team communication that kept all our resources and communications in one place. Its been out about a month and we've had 4,175 games played and the high score is 1447 and I am lagging way behind...
Save the villagers from the greedy Baboom! Prepare to enter into to a chaotic, action-packed arcade frenzy where the only thing that stands between the villagers and certain death is you. Included is our unique challenge system that instantly puts you up against your friends, to see who can gain the title as the king of Baboom. No time to waste, those villagers need your help!
What do you call a monkey who throws bombs?
Baboom is an chaotic, action packed, arcade tapping game rewarding speed and accuracy where the only thing that stands between the villagers and certain death is you! Save them from the greedy Baboom and compete against your friends via our unique challenge system to see who can gain the title of king of Baboom. No time to waste, those villagers need your help!
So a while back a kid came up to one of our team and asked: ‘What do you call a monkey that throws bombs?... A BABOOM!’ And that was pretty much all we needed; a year later we had Baboom.
Baboom centres its gameplay around our unique custom-made challenge system. Rather than opting to use Game Center we decide to create our own challenge and matching system that allowed us to continually match players against more opponents throughout their game. Usually you only get matched against one opponent at the start of your game. But in Baboom once you beat an opponent we will match you with another tougher opponent straight away in-game. It weights your friends higher than other players so where possible you will be matched against your friends keeping competition core.
Baboom is the product of Lucky Punk Studios, a four man team based around the UK and Malaysia. Baboom is the first game in our Baboom series. Working against distance and time difference, with the team split across the globe, we used 'Slack' to collaborate and make Baboom a reality.
Baboom is freely available to download exclusively from the app store.
