Ow My Balls! 1.4 Submitted for Review

Posted by joshm On August - 16 - 2009

Great news – we just submitted the 1.4 update for review! We have added four gameplay modes to ensure the game is fun for everyone.

The gameplay style from 1.3 is now called “hard mode” which is a pretty good description of it.

We’ve added “easy mode”, which is easier than the game has ever been, and medium which is closest to the gameplay style from 1.2.

We’ve also brought back unlimited farts as “freestyle mode” which can be unlocked by scoring 250,000 points.

Hopefully this new update of My Balls will be in your hands within 2 weeks. Fingers crossed.

We hear you!

Holy balls! We got a lot of feedback about the 1.3 update and are rushing out a 1.4 update this weekend to address it. Clearly the game is now way too hard and we’ve got to do something about it. We really wanted to make the gameplay challenging, but looks like we went overboard.

We were experimenting with different gameplay modes before the release but decided to hold off till the next update. We’re going to crank 1.4 out, along with unlimited farts, as fast as we can.

Thanks for the feedback – we really appreciate it!

Ow My Balls! 1.3 is LIVE

Posted by joshm On August - 11 - 2009

This update is the result of a heroic multi-month effort to completely redesign the game and take it to the next level. We’ve always been convinced that this game is a sleeper hit, but we also knew it needed some real improvement to get there. Almost 90% of the code was re-written for this update to ensure a high performance crash-free experience.

The 1.3 update includes a wide range of features, too many for me to list here, but I’ll highlight just a few:

  • Completely redesigned controls
  • Reworked scoring system with on-line scores
  • Endless gameplay – there is no limit to how long you can play!
  • Integrated OpenFeint with global Leaderboards and Achievements
  • Unlock and watch VIDEOS of EPIC nutshots
  • Landscape mode
  • New sounds

We put a ton of work into this update, more than the original game itself, so we really hope you all like it. Thanks for hanging in there.
