Bomb Dodge is a survival iPhone game that combines animation, multi-touch gestures, and fast-paced action. Bombee is the last good bomb that was created in a factory before an evil scientist switched the production to evil bombs. Now Bombee must dodge fireballs and avoid all the bombs that are exploding! You need to protect him using all of your fingers. Drag Bombee to dodge fireballs, avoid explosions, and escape the factory! Clear the path for Bombee by throwing evil bombs against the walls to score more points. Bomb Dodge is a kid friendly game that is challenging for all ages. We developed Bomb Dodge over the summer. First we brainstormed ideas for games, developed the game mechanics, and have been working to polish the game with the help of an artist and a music composer. We've spent a lot of time play testing similar games to figure out what makes them good. Several of the features in Bomb Dodge are original, while others are based on our fun experiences playing other games. For example, we use a random interval difficulty system to create random waves of enemies that provide an on-going challenge, similar to Jetpack Joyride. We also fell in love with the upgrade systems in Whale Trail and Zombie Highway Driver's Ed, and have implemented a similar system in Bomb Dodge. One of our favorite original features that we designed is our dynamic cartoon system. As you throw or drag characters around the screen they stretch and squash like cartoon characters, something that is not found in most games. Instead of using arrow buttons or dual thumb-sticks we opted for direct touch control. Any button or character can be dragged around the screen in a playful manner. The combination of visual feedback and animation with the dynamic cartoon system creates a rich visual experience.
