You know how game development companies love to comment their deadline shifts again and again: «It’s done when it’s done». Gosh it’s unnerving. Well, we aren’t like that. Or at least we’re trying hard not to end up like that :)
Okay, let’s admit, we really screwed up with premature title’s launch announcement back in December 2010. On the bright side, it wasn’t our laziness that caused that delay. Quite contrary — we teamed up with awesome folks from Chillingo, who helped us improve the game even further. Two more months of bloody hard work and dedication and we’re finally happy to report that the game’s release is right around the corner.
The release date is yet to be announced, but don’t make it stop you from letting us know what you think. Our twitter and Facebook page are always there for you!
As promised, the next big thing A-Steroids is preparing for you folks is Vampire Rush on iPhone & iPad! The game is going to land in the AppStore in January 2011.
Sounds like a lot of time to transfer a game from one mobile platform to another? Well, that’s because we don’t want to just create a «port» from Bada to iOS. Among smaller improvements in art, UI, sound and gameplay, we are adding few major features that will literally blow you away. Stay tuned, we’ll reveal them soon!
Good news for everyone who enjoyed Vampire Rush on Samsung Wave: new version’s coming!
For the last few weeks of game’s presence in the Samsung Apps, we are proud to say the game has been received really great! PocketGamer gave it Gold Award, customer average rating is 4.5 of 5 stars and the game has climbed to the Top 15 paid apps in few countries!
We didn’t want to stop on that though. We’ve collected carefully all the feedback we could get our hands on and used it to craft an update that will make the game even more addictive and awesome! Long story short, here is what you’ll find in the Vampire Rush 1.1;
2 more dungeons to protect from hordes of vampires;
Pick-up chests on the dungeon map: collect them to get some gold, heal yourself or blow the place up and kill monsters around you;
Dungeon high-scores: gain bonus score for using fighting combos, collecting chests and so on;
Better game balance, tutorial, interface and many other small fixes and improvements;
The update is going to be submitted to the Samsung QA team first thing tomorrow morning. Fingers crossed, it should go live next week!
As usual, the update is free for those who already bought the current version of the game. For those who didn’t do it yet: hurry up, today is the last day of the Halloween 50% discount! Stay tuned, folks!
Vampire Rush, our brand new game about Captain Greg and his mission to keep Vampires away from the World of the Living got its first trailer. Check it out and pass to friend!
For those who missed the announcement, Vampire Rush is a blend of two highly addictive genres: tower defense and survival action. Fight greedy vampires using your sword skills, defensive towers and special abilities. Add an absolutely brilliant 3D graphics to this mix and there is a game you must not miss.
The game is in the final phase of submission to the Samsung Apps and will be available for the Samsung Wave any day now. AppStore version will follow shortly as well.
Must admit, we kept silence for a loooong time. Now it’s time to speak up: we’ve got a darn good reason for this after all!
We love tower defense games (who doesn’t?), but there is one thing that has always bothered us, big time. You build defensive towers, buy magic potions and stuff, but you don’t really fight the enemies yourself. You just sit there waiting for the towers to take care of everything. So we decided to fix this!
Meet our brand new game — Vampire Rush: The Adventures of Capt. Greg. Vampire Rush is an awesome combination of your two favorite genres: tower defense and survival action. Your mission is to defend the Gates that lead from the Vampire Underworld to the World of the Living. Stunning 3D graphics you’ve never seen before on a mobile phone, exciting original gameplay, spectacular sword fights combined with strategic tower building and magic-slash-technical skills and upgrades — we’ve got it all. Yeah. That’s how we’re rolling.
For the first time the game will see the light on the top-notch mobile device from Samsung, Wave. It was our first real development experience with this phone. Must say, we are excited about its 3D graphics capabilities and overall potential as a gaming device.
Now, I know, I know — «but what the heck about iPhone version?!». Good news: we are already working our fingers to the bone to bring you both iPhone and iPad versions as soon as possible.

P.S. Now when we’re about to get some spare time, we are ready to switch our sick minds back to Underworld. Never forgot about it actually, but we’re going to hit it hard this time. Stay tuned, folks.
