Description

Let's face it. We all are bored by birds that do not fly, feeding candy to a frog or fighting off zombies on your lawn. Why don't you try something a bit more exciting, like...I dunno...destroying the world? Too much effort? Puh-lease! All you need to do is tap your phone! You don't even need to get off the toilet. Now, if that isn't every crazy villan's dream, I don't know what is. Your evil robot rises to the top, while humanity is going the hell down! What's that? Regular robots not cool enough for you? Well, this one got freaking magnetic powers! Tap your screen to switch polarity and avoid obstacles in an ever accelerating danger zone and see how fit you are for world domination.

History

Magnetoid started as a Room 247 Studio internal game jam. We are a new small company and we wanted to test our workflow and our new team before starting our big project with the code-name "Magnet-O-Bro". We didn't plan a result out of this jam but after 2 Weeks we had a nice working prototype which was actually fun to play. Volker, one of our graphic artists, was really hooked and couldn't stop playing. In the third week we decided to go the full length and work on this game until we had a stable release build. It is our first project as an Indie Developer Team and a present for the mobile gamer. It is not perfect and we already have a ton of ideas to improve it. But since our big game MAGNET-O-BRO is now getting more attention, we need to see when we can take care about little Magnetoid. Maybe SUPER Magnetoid is something for the future... So far, Magnetoid has been featured on Indiestatik.com, Playandroid.com and many more (See additional links section below for all press features).
