Lumpy Hoops has been Submitted!

After endless hours of test ... all for your hopefully soon to be playing enjoyment ... we finally submitted Lumpy Hoops to Apple!

Learning from the lessons of the first version of QuitIt!, we took more time to put the product in front of people to get their feedback. We also spent many an hour tuning the game to be fun game after game after game...

So what are the feature of Lumpy Hoops?

  • Time Mode: You've got 45 seconds to get as many points as possible!
  • Endurance Mode: Think you got what it takes? See how long you can play and how many points you can rack up!
  • Special Balls: Can you figure out how to use the Power, Money, and Atom balls to get even higher scores?
  • Global High Scores: Show the world how you DOMINATE by posting your scores on our Global Scores Tables!
  • Challenge A Friend: Want to show your buddy that you've got game? Send them a Challenge!
  • Facebook Connect: See just how much you own the court compared to your friends! Post to your wall from the game when you rule!
  • OpenFeint Support: Want to see how you're doing versus the OpenFeint community? You can do that too!

'Nuf with the purty talk ... how about some pixies that will speak a few thousand words!?

Introducing Lumpy Hoops!

As we indicated earlier, we've been working on a standalone version of Lumpy Hoops. This is an enhanced version of the Lumpy Hoops mini game already in QuitIt! We took the core game play of the mini game and added some new elements to it. This includes improved animations as well as special balls to help you get even higher scores! There are also 2 game mode: Timed and Endless (tentative names). Timed is a 45 second game. Endless lasts depending on how well you play. Unlike in the version in QuitIt!, the Endless mode in the standalone will keep giving you new Extra Time bonuses!

Lumpy Hoops is already in beta. We've been spending lot's of time tuning it. We have one more beta test group to go, and then we'll be submitting it to Apple!

We'll post more deets soon ... but in the meantime, we hope you enjoy this screenie...

Lumpy Loves Fan Art!

Lumpy loves fan art. He really does. And over the course of a few contests as well as random masterpieces conjured up by fans, we've assembled quite the collection of artwork. For the past few days, Lumpy has been reminding us over and over to get the Fan Art Page up. His usual demand for pho was replaced by saying over and over "Fan Art Page?".

Well the other day we were able to finally fulfill Lumpy's request. The Fan Art Page is up! Check out the slices of awesomeness here! You can also always use the link by clicking on the Fan Art image on the right side bar.

Lumpy would like thank all the of his fans that spent their time and efforts in producing those pieces of artwork!

Lumpy Hoops is Coming Soon!

Happy New Years everyone! Okay, that message is coming out a bit late. And it's scary that were already halfway through January!

It's been a few weeks since we've last written something. Sorry for all that radio silence! We have been busy at work on things since the start of the new year. Over the next few days, we'll start to post more regularly, which includes posting the awesome pictures from our last contest!

One of the things we have been doing over the last few weeks is working on our new game. Well, it's not that new. It's a standalone version of Lumpy Hoops. For those of you that have QuitIt!, you may have already played it. It's basically a basketball style game where you try and score as much as you can using balls that are made out of Lumpy!

So what's different between the standalone version and what you have in QuitIt!? The standalone will have 2 game modes: Arcade and Pro. The Pro mode adds to the challenge by having you control the direction you are shooting. It also adds more power-ups and special balls to help gain even higher scores. While the QuitIt! version is capped, the standalone can last as long as you can imagine! Our very own Hermanator managed to play a 74 minute game!

Right now we are currently in Beta Testing with it, and are continually improving on the gameplay experience.

More details on that will be coming soon, as well as more deets on EP5!
