Brew Engine Forum

We've put up a forum for Brew Engine related discussions to promote more open and fluid communication with the users who are using our games and applications.  So check it out and feel free to post your thoughts, questions or rants.

Centrifuge in the Android Market

Our latest game, Centrifuge, is in the Android market! -- I know, this post is a bit belated, but better late than never right?

Centrifuge comes in two flavors:
A free Lite version which allows users to play the first 4 levels.  Or a Full version for $0.99 USD which currently includes 10 levels but we plan to add many more in the near future.

And here is the Market description to give you an idea of what the game is all about:
Twist your phone, contort your body, and save the day in this fast paced, action packed puzzle game. Warning: this game is not for people who hold their phone flat on a table! You’ve got to free the radiation particles by guiding them into the nuclear safety buffer zones. Hold your phone up and vertical and rotate CAREFULLY to avoid colliding into dangerous nucleobstacles.
“If only I played this a year ago” -Nuclear physicist Dr. Sen T. Rifuge
Centrifuge is OpenFeint enabled which allows you to compete with your friends/frenemies!

Roaring Skies Onslaught

So...someone graciously pointed out that Onslaught was broken in the downloadable beta version of Roaring Skies.

Well, we've fixed the issue, so Onslaught can be enjoyed by all again! The fix has been pushed to our version control system, so the new build will be ready for download just after 2am tomorrow morning (after the crons do their jobs)!

Thanks to all our beta testers!

The Brain Trust

Wanna put in your two cents? Brewengine is putting together a group of participants were calling "The Brain Trust". We're currently in the process of putting together the most epic dogfighing game ever seen on a mobile device and we're going to be relying on the brain trust in the coming days for feedback and guidance. Fill out the form after the jump and let us know at what level you would like to be involved.

Its a bird. Its a plane. Its the next big thing in mobile gaming.

Ya I know. I was surprised too but headlines don't lie. We are making a new game. While we're a little short on the details at the moment and things are fully open to change here is what I can tell you.

This is a DOTA style multiplayer dogfighting game primarily targeted to mobile devices.

The game takes place in the 1940s. You are a pilot charged with protecting your forces, dominating the air and destroying the enemy's position. As you acquire more kills you are able to purchase upgrades for yourself and your fellow pilots. You must out fly and out think your opponents to be successful.

Screenshots available after the jump.
