Hi everyone,

We're spreading the word about our new game, Gore Ball. I'm one of the developers on it. It's at Apple for approval and should be in the App Store soon. We'll post back once it's available on the store.

Gore Ball is one quirky game. We still can't decide whether it's action, adventure or arcade play. All of the above! I won't give away too much but this first quest is a hack-n-slash, brick-breaker with some cool extras. Oh and zombies that go splat! We've got some pretty cool plans for updates in the works too.

You can see a gameplay video here:

or visit our website: http://www.gearworxprod.com

Secret tip: Master using Curve Ball - it's one spell that will save your life and it's just plain cool!

Thanks for reading and I'll be back soon!

Pete aka PrivatePhilBilko

Story Overview:
Hale Galeric, a knight, returns home from the holy crusades only to find his way of life and spiritual beliefs have been turned upside down. A pure evil has swept across the land, killing Hale's wife and daughter in its wake. The people call it The Darkness as the light itself can not escape its clutches. Called upon by the Gods, Hale takes up his sword and pushes fourth to cleanse the land and restore peace to all.

See how long you can survive in this all-out gib fest!

Wow that was fast... Gore Ball has been approved! Should be released tonight. I'll post back with details once it's live on the App Store.

Gary - thanks again for all your help!

Eric - was in a rush last night and didn't get the chance... good to see you again! :)

Who am I kidding? I'm in a rush now too! :P

I was just gonna say; there's no politics on this forum, so why are we talking about Algore's balls? :P

He already sent me a pm, and we've been making jokes at your expense behind your back ever since.

So, you and your creepy pal Eric have been making fun of me behind my back eh Pete?  You two little simpering cretins don't even have the common decency to make fun of me openly like everybody else.  I've added you the The List.  You don't want to be on The List.  Now bad things loom in your future.  You had your chance to suck up to me, but no, you went with our lowest common denominator, Eric.

Now the wailing starts.  Soon it will be the gnashing of teeth.  Eventually you will find yourself gnawing your own leg off to free yourself from this forum and The List.  Your pal Eric didn't warn you about that while you were holding your aching sides laughing at me in PMs did he?  Your buddy Eric.  Your chum.  All I gotta say is to watch your apostrophes or you will find him at your soft underbelly, tearing and rending your flesh.

This is what you get when you side with Spartacus instead of Crassus. I mean, Cattus.

Don't worry about Mr. Bottle Cat; he is all meow and no bite.  There is a certain amount of scratching and mauling though.
