[prMac.com] Sydney, Australia – After testing the waters earlier this year on an asynchronous multiplayer title (Robo Arena – yet to be released), Mega Bee culminates Zen Cap Games debut on the App Store this week. Coincidentally the date also marks the indie developer’s wedding day.
Inspired by fellow Aussie company Halfbrick’s Fruit Ninja, the objective of Mega Bee involves the rescue of Princess Bee in the ninja way. Or whatever other way works via power ups and items purchasable with in game currency. Written on the popular cocos2d platform for iPhone, it is best described as a fast swiping game with objectives including collecting as much gold and items as possible on a time limit, whilst avoiding hazards such as bears, birds, cars, spiders, ghosts and a fiery dragon.
The entire game was conceived, designed and developed by an ex-stock trader who has worked on enterprise software projects and can consume a gallon of strawberry ice cream whilst playing board games. In regards to the the future direction of the company, the managing director offered the comment, “With (Mega Bee) we are aiming for the casual gamer who loves to collect stuff. Our games are suitable for all ages and ad free. I’m hoping the economics work in keeping things that way for the years ahead.”
Main Features include:
* Simple fasted paced, swiping collection gameplay
* 4 Unique stages with two more in the next update
* Unlockable hard mode with “GANGNAM STYLE” easter egg
* Suitable for all ages (4 )
* Game Center Leaderboards
* Earn gold to buy upgrades and purchasable content
* Every game is never the same and potentially endless
* Funky and retro upbeat tunes
* iDevice capable of running iOS 5 or 6.
The developer is also running a competition for early adopters. The first 5 people who email in a screenshot of the finished game and an idea for the next update will have their names or aliases credited in the game.Zen Capital
