I am new on this forum, it's my first 3D game for Windows Phone 7 and 8.
A short movie :
1 star: Don't buy. Scam. Temple Run knock-off, full of glitches. Doesn't work, should be free.
1 star: It only a $1, yet I feel I have been ripped off, should be free. There is a reason it doesn't have a free trial, you wouldn't buy it. Very laggy, tilt control needs to be more sensitive. I will give more stars if the game is improved upon.
LOL, go scam somewhere else
The game is optimized for HTC 8X, 8S, LUMIA 920 and 820, but he works on older devices with WP7.1 or WP7.5.
It's a 3D game with real time light(specular,mapped) with 2048x2048 texturing, so on older device you can have some lag.
The movie was made on a HTC HD7 this morning(v18.104.22.168), it's a 2 years old phone.
For moment on the Market the version is v22.214.171.124, I improved the character's animation between v126.96.36.199 and v188.8.131.52
I sent V184.108.40.206 to Microsoft this morning, you must to wait 3days before to see this version on the Market.
I am working hard to improve the game every day.
Give me your paypal account, and I will send you $1 to test it.
Will there be an AD version? Hopefully you can post a video of the game on YouTube or Vimeo.
I'm desperate of a Temple Run like game on WP, and so far your seems to be really great. I'm glad you've decided to bring this to our market! Thanks!!!
The video is already on youtube : Castle Run - YouTube
Yes I think to make a free AD version in 2 weeks.
Wow, great way to encourage development on Windows Phone. Scare off anyone who's investing their personal time in developing a game because they haven't produced something that's up to the standards of an established developer.
I think Castle run still has a ways to go, but it's definitely a good start.
Thank you, indeed, some comments do not encourage me, but I am continuing to work hard every day after my work.
I hope to produce a good game in some weeks with your help, and comments on this topic.
It's difficult to make a game for WP7 and WP8, the CPU and GPU are so differents.
For WP7 I removed some light and effect in the code, the Lava doesn't move for exemple.
yeah people can be brutal man but everyone has to start somewhere. Thanks for your time and dedication. Hopefully it pays off in the future, just dont give up ever
I encourage quality stuff, check my path of para post, if you produce alpha crappy product, give no trial and sell it for $1,m that's scam.
Before releasing the game should be more polished, First impressions and all that.
Keep at it, it looks good.
I sent a new release this morning to Microsoft, V220.127.116.11.
I think this release will be available in 1 week.
-New character's animations
-New character's texture
-Add dragon flying
-Character can only move left/middle/right
-Character auto centering after turn 90°
-New obstacle : chain
-New obstacle : rock
-Adding some lights
-Adding some diamonds
That sounds exciting :D. One thing I don't really get. What do you mean by "Characters can only move left/middle/right"? We are no longer able to jump or slide? Or that it is Subway Surfers style (3 sides)?
Sorry for my english, I am from switzerland.
Yes you always can jump and slide, but you can run only on 3 sides(left , middle and right), it is no longer possible to fall into the lava.
Looks like a good start and I hope it keeps improving. I believe you should have waited to release it but that's just my personal opinion. I hope try it in the future and good luck!
My new release is available on the Market, I hope you will be happy with this release.
I'm working hard on the next release.
Doesn't look too shabby! Keep it up!
Still not available in Russian market.
nexus74350, can you check "sell" checkbox, may be RU store is unchecked?
Yes, the problem was RU store not checked, only this state was not checked.(PEGI)
I checked RU store and submited a new release with some improvement.
My game is available on the Russian store , sorry :smile:
Thank you :)
(mandatory PEGI certification is a big problem for Russian store, most developers don't know about these certificates)
I sent the release V18.104.22.168 to Microsoft with :
-New light for the Lava.
I am working on the V22.214.171.124 with music, new graphics.
Get a trial out for this. I'm not a Temple Run person, but I would at least be willing to give your game a few test attempts to see if I'm interested.
I want to buy this game. If only because I wish to encourage you. However, there is a lot of negative reviews for this app and they are overwhelmingly negative. Almost everybody is asking for their money back :(
I don't mind if the graphics suck because that is okay. However, half the complaints are about the controls. I can live with ****ty graphics but not with poor controls. Will wait for the new version on 26th and if the controls are fixed, it is a buy for me. Good luck.
