    I have installed it on my Lumia 800, everything working fine, and game really looks better if I turned on the nokia mode from settings, great graphics.

    Controls are little bit difficult, it will be better if you can do the following.
    Click to view quoted image


    On above pic, joystick on left side to move left/right/fow/back, and right side G1 for primary weapon, and G2 for secondary weapon (if any). and for up/down/left/right view, entire screen swipe (like splinter cell on WP7). If you can add this, then this game will be gr8 and will be the best game for WP7 :)

    PS: Will it be available under XBOX Live?

    Thanks

    i will look into this about the controls thank you

    you know without the controls , the game is not working

    i think i will add a custom mode where people can design there own controls , place on the screen ect... and dual joystick as well

    please contunie play the game , and thanks for your imput , it is all about giving a great game experence when it gonna be released

    about xbox live , we do not know ,

    i have programmed my own onlive game platform ,, so we really do not know what to do yet

    I'm not sure how much of my posts that you have read but I cannot download it from their server it stops mid download... Do you have skydrive or dropbox where you can share with me please? Can someone?

    Still the same issue this morning, download stops at the same exact spot every single time. Can't be a server load with that much of a coincidence when I'm downloading full speed.

    If anyone can help it is much appreciated.

    Awesome! I will have to try it when I get home. I can't wait!! :giggle:

    UPDATE:Sorry but it still doesn't work.

    Not sure if this helps, but if I try to turn off Nokia Mode, the page scrolls to the side. I can't actually click on it... What's up with that?

    You should probably not have the screen scroll just when you touch it. I would use the default swipe for Metro, the way it normally is. Its quite annoying to be honest :dry

    Oh okay, so its off by default. I thought it was On by default. I understand now.

    The design you have for menu selection makes it a bit unclear as to what is selected. I wasn't sure if red or green was on or off. I would maybe use a selection option instead... So it would show like this:
    • Nokia Mode: Off
    • Sound FX: On
    • Control Set: Left
    • Username:


    Anyways, once I can start playing the game I will gladly give back more feedback. I especially have some feedback for the main menu. Being a UI/Web Designer myself, I can definitely help with that ;)

    Okay, so this is interesting. I tried to play it again this afternoon, and its crashing at 50% again. But then I restarted the phone and its working again. Not sure what is causing this.

    FEEDBACK:

    Controls
    There are a couple things that are bothering me. The controls are a bit tough... I would recommend adding a sensitivity control for the joystick on the right. Also, the d-pad on the left has a hard time with my finger swiping around on it. It doesn't detect diagonal movement very well. I usually have to let go and press either up, down, left or right. If you can make controls customizable, that would be ideal. Or have the controls invisible, but detect when your fingers touch the screen.

    Two games/apps that you can look at that have very good controls are vNESLight, Rocket Riot and Square Off.

    Design
    From a design point of view, the main menu can use some work. Its too busy... I would get rid of the big red, all caps text thats scrolling saying "GLOBAL TAKEOVER" I would get rid of that, and have the title of the game at the top. Get rid of the yellow header. Also, I would use a different font for the section header. If you notice in my design, I actually used a cool pixelated font, like in the 80s video games. :D That should help a lot I think. I actually took a screenshot of the game and did a little design work in Photoshop.

    ABOUT THIS
    Okay, so this is interesting. I tried to play it again this afternoon, and its crashing at 50% again. But then I restarted the phone and its working again. Not sure what is causing this

    IT IS A BUG IN THE MICROSOFT FRAMEWORK
    i allso had this on my lumia 800
    i think it is becourse of the fast apps swicth

    let say you an incomming call while you are playing and after you call is finish you go back to the game or leve it in the back ground , course doing othere stuff

    so when you return back to the game ,, the microsoft framework remember the stuff that was running ,, all good so far
    then you quit the game,, and do not play iy let say a day,,

    and then you load up the game and play , it crash

    becourse fast app startup meens , that all the stuff you have installed on your phone the will allways bee kept some small buffer or startupcode running

    in order to do fast app swicth or startup

    so i think it is a microsoft bug in the framework

    when i reset the phone , it whipe out the memory and you get a real startup ,, so it is working

    we have encounter sevel bugs in windows phone 8107 version

    audio bugs , when you shoot, not stopping properly
    radio bugs allso audio
    graphics bug in the driver
    and the bug you mention,, 50% loading and crash

    so it is verry deffecult to do a game on this platform
    it is not the same thing with all these windows phones
    i whish there where only one phone with the same hardware spec.

    like the xbox and iphone,, i think microsoft shood be a ware about this
    i have try post somthing about this in the apphub forum
    but the post get deleted right a way

    that is allso why we are doing a public beta,,

    we whant to know as developers , what are the guide lines for these defferent phones
    and microsoft will not share this info

    i think that is why not manny cool 3d games on windows phone , becourse developers can not get im to run properly,, you know there more to games than just draw a sprite on the screen in a 2d game

    3d games are hard to make , if you have to know all these defferent phones and hardware spect.
    normal a 3d game requer a lot of memory , we are allso restracted to only 90mb of memory use

    so it is hard.. as ****

    please keep comming with more feedback or problems you are having

    One other thing that maybe can be improved is the gamma or brightness. It seems a bit bright... I think the blacks should be darker, if that makes sense. :)
