Acky's Reloaded is the rebirth of a game that I released 10 years ago! Since then a whole generation of new gamers have appeared and I would love to share this game with them on current devices and platforms. The original was called Acky's XP Breakout and was a smash hit, winning several BEST GAME awards and receiving many rave reviews...
"The best breakout
game I've ever played (and I've played them all)." - John Becker, Pocket PC Louisville Editor
"This game has to be the most developed breakout clone I've ever seen." - Allen Gall, Pocket PC Magazine Games Editor
"True arkanoid fans will embrace this game as being easily one of the better titles available." - Russell Carroll, Game Tunnel
There were hundreds of reviews about the game like this, and this was the version of the game released 10 years ago, since then I have added a whole slew of new features, new levels, new level elements, all new graphics, more music, and I want to add a lot more with your help, this game will be awesome!
- Fun Characters - Gain new abilities with pilots such as a popcicle octopus and a robot space dog!
Pets - Lonely? Bessie will help, but watch out for her bite, she is a vampire cow after all!
Skill Missions - Put spin on the ball for precision shots and increase your skills!
Special Items - Unlock boosters and unique items to help you with challenging levels!
Retro Particles - Be mesmerized by the retro psychedelic pixel particles emanating from every move!
Hundreds of Levels - Easy and fun to play but a challenge to master! So many levels!
Video games take a long time to develop and are expensive. Usually games are financed through a publisher, which I have never used, I have self funded all of my games in the past. INDIE With this project I want to give the community a voice to be part of this awesome game. Kickstarter provides a unique interface to talk and deal directly with fans who love games, and I want to make a game that you love to play. I need financing to finish the game, bring it to more platforms, and for artwork, please see the budget below. I have successfully completed 10 game projects as an indie, this will happen!
PLATFORMS & STRETCH GOALS
If funded the game will be available for:
- Windows (XP and above)
- Mac (OSX 10.5 and above)
- iOS (5.0 and above)
If the stretch goal of $15,000 is met
- Windows Phone
If the stretch goal of $19,000 is met
- Nintendo Wii U
- Nintendo 3DS
Most of the budget will be used on art assets, which I think is the most important part of the game that I cannot do myself, I will also use funds for development hardware to bring the game to as many platforms as possible.
The game uses a custom made 2d graphics engine I dubbed the Atom Engine, which I built from scratch, yes I coded every single blit function, circle plotter, font renderer, and more. It does use jpeglib for image loading, I'm not that crazy :P
WHO IS ISOTOPE 244?
Hello, my name is James and I'm a one man company, I've been a full time indie dev for 15 years! I've created 10 games and 9 screensavers in that time. I've released games on Mac, Windows, Pocket PC, and iOS and hope to release my future games on Ouya, Android, Windows Phone, Blackberry, and Linux. My last big game was an RTS named Machines at War 3, I worked on it for over two years full time, which I hope speaks to my dedication, drive, and commitment to getting a project done.
