Timeshock!

Recommended Posts

Well, this sub forum shouldn't be there for no reason: it is out on iOS.

And it's great!

This is what I built my cab for. Hope it doesn't take another year to get there!

It's OK... I guess I expected a bit more. The game play is as expected.  The game seems solid as far as modes go.  

 

However, the table is a static rendering. You can't change camera views and I think the view they use shows too much speaker/DMD area. Even on my iphone 6 plus the speaker and DMD take up too much screen real estate.  On my Ipad mini it looks a bit better due to the bigger screen size. I don't see how people with smaller screens than the 6 plus could really enjoy it. The DMD reflection over the playfield is completely useless, distracting and annoying, there should have an option to at least remove it.

I hope for cabinet version the DMD reflection gets removed, or we'll have two of them :)

Dazz: They have said more angles are coming but it will never be a free floating camera, that's not their thing and to be honest, that allows them to get into more detail without needing extra CPU power. 

 

I think for a mobile game, it's pretty amazing and the cab video someone posted a few months ago shows a lot of promise on the PC side.  It will be cool when they add more view for sure, hope they get back on track they're really late on their milestones!  LOL

How can you not be happy with this...? Have you seen better?? Just look at it...

They got the table out with one view and they said more will follow. The PC build is up and running. Shouldn't we be more positive and support these guys, otherwise this project might disappear for another 20 years... Or forever.

This is so frustrating, guys.... I don't know if I'm looking at a real table or a simulation, the future is scary

 

I can't imagine how many people are complaining about dark balls on this, though...

But remember you can use the lighting slider to increase the light a tad. If people ask they might even be able to add one for the ball brightness.

The pc version? According to some of their posts, It is not expected until after the android release.

Indeed

 

March 13 this was posted on their kickstarter page : Sorry, guys. We're still working on the Android version, which is getting very close now. Once that's done PC, Mac and Linux should follow a few weeks later.

 

So... I hope I can play it in my cabinet before the end of this year. I don't mind if it takes them longer though, as long as it is awesome when it is finished.

I'd really like to see it arrive on pc cab this summer, everything else would be ridiculous. They should get it the fuck done and then fly off to a nice beach and have some cocktails

I always imagine for a second them saying to themselves "man, we should release it and make money instead of sitting on it here and have no income come in."

Sorry for the obvious sarcasm ;), but they obviously would release it if it was ready, so pretty sure it's not. I don't think things are as black and white as some people think. I think it's fair criticism that there has been some mismanagement of timeframes and expectations but IMHO, they have done better on this front of late and the quality of the iOS version on Retina devices has provided me hope it will certainly be worth the wait.

MPad: not really directed at you, just the general comments on lack of patience by some

I really have no idea how long it takes, buy there have to be some synergies right. They don't have to reinvent the wheel on every Plattform. I just imagined they already did more parallel...

It's out.

At least for backers.

Actually it's pretty great!

But no real full-screen for cabs yet.

It is also out on Steam Early Access for all others since about one week.
It supports portrait mode and it plays very very well on my cab.

Bought this on android a couple days ago. I still prefer to play the sega dreamcast version. Comments above are funny.. What were you expecting from a port of a 15 plus year old game? Derp. :)
