It’s a bit shameless self promotion but anyway: I ported Vampire Fever to Blackberry Playbook. It’s $0.99 and includes a cheat mode which is not normally available in the flash version. Check it here!
I know there are people who liked the game but got frustrated by the difficulty of some levels. With cheat mode, you can unlock any nasty level you want and experience the full game. This also means, you can unlock all creatures and mess with the level creator as you like!
(update: I added cheat mode to the flash version on my website, play online version here. )
Why Playbook? Some of you might already know, Blackberry/RIM was giving a free Playbook as a promotion for developers who submit their app to their store before end of March. Better, you don’t need to re-write your code in a whole new language because their system allows you to wrap your flash games as apps for playbook.
I often become tired of working on my games after they’re finished so I’m pretty lazy when it comes to porting my games to mobile platforms. But since the process seemed simple, I didn’t want to miss a free tablet chance.
Of course all of this was too good to be true. The porting process was messy and painful simply because of incomplete tools. I almost gave up because of buggy simulator/sdk issues and ancient ways of doing things (It was only fun for first 5 seconds to use command line after 20 years). There is already enough rant about this topic so I will not delve into details but… Blackberry/RIM really needs to redesign this process if they want to be able to compete with other high profile and already successful tablets.
Anyway, you can buy Vampire Fever Playbook version here!
