About this project
UPDATE: Thanks for checking us out! Even if you decide not to support us, please leave a comment on Shatter Crash and our campaign!
Shatter Crash is an exciting fast-paced puzzle roleplaying game for the iPad that places you in Cyberspace, where you must navigate through Mainframes and Nodes in order to unlock new programs, purchase powerful equipment, battle ruthless Boss Nodes, and free trapped Nanobots from their corrupted prisons.
The core gameplay is similar to the classic game Tetrisphere for Nintendo 64. Shatter Crash has you shifting, matching, and dropping various shapes across a sphere, destroying shapes and working to reach the sphere’s core.
Shatter Crash takes the puzzle concept to a new level by incorporating character involvement, customization, exciting new game modes, and equipment leveling. Our goal with Shatter Crash is to provide a puzzle game that is truly fun and engaging and allows you to play the game the way that you want to.
S.T.A.N. (System Triggered Automated Nanobot 223)
S.T.A.N. is your helpful Nanobot guide that calls the network of Nakai Industries his home. He narrowly escaped the virus that spread throughout all of the mainframes in the network and corrupted his Nanobot buddies. He is determined (with your help) to free his fellow Nanobots and purge the virus from the network, once and for all! S.T.A.N. has Power Suits, Attachments, and Programs at his disposal to help you purge the virus. The deeper you venture into the network, the more powerful the equipment he can use.
Bosses are corrupted forms of sweet Nanobots that were once Stan's friends. These infected Bosses hold the key to access to the next mainframe. After defeating a Mainframe Boss, the trapped Nanobot will return to their snuggly docile self. They are counting on you to free them!
We really believe in Shatter Crash and with your help we can make this game even more amazing!
This is what we plan to do if we get funded:
- Shatter Crash ports to iPhone and possibly other platforms
- More Nodes and Mainframes to challenge you
- More Attachments and Programs to provide you with new play options
- Visual upgrades like unique backgrounds and shapes
- More heart-thumping, shape-shattering music and sound effects
- New Power Suits that provide unique benefits
- Additional block types that will behave differently
- The option to purchase in-game currency and buy new items faster
- New game modes that completely change gameplay and add new strategic elements
- New and improved Boss battles
- More focus on and character development of S.T.A.N.
- The option to level all of your equipment, not just your Power Suit
- Random Node generator for endless and even more challenging gameplay
Shatter Crash has been released in the App Store, but due to financial and time restrictions we weren’t able to incorporate all the elements that we wanted in the game. We also really want to release Shatter Crash on the iPhone! We strongly believe in the game concept and we feel that with some additional love, it will be even better!
