Drum Beat Evolution!!! (LD 24) now on iPhone!

View it on iTunes here.

Ludum Dare 24 was my first time entering the compo and I managed to get a simple game entered just in time called Drum Beat Evolution!!!

See the LD24 Entry here.

It’s a colourful Drum Beat Maker with the added twist of never being able to stop or pause, causing the song to evolve as you go along. I was happy to see that it was enjoyed by those who played it. When I saw that it had come in 8th in the category ‘Audio’ I rushed around telling everyone I knew.

When the compo was over I decided that I would port it to iPhone. I didn’t actually know anything about iOS development. My most relevant experience was C. I downloaded XCode and poked around a little bit and was quite intimidated. I purchased ‘Sams Teach yourself iPhone Application Development in 24 hours’ and started going through the lessons and found by the 6th Chapter/Hour I had learned enough to stumble through making the app.

As most will relate to, this really is the start of the dream for me. Making a steady income to support me through making indie games. I do hope to make many more. If you played the entry and own an iPhone or iPad I hope you’ll check it out and help me get it noticed. It seems like the app store is very overpopulated and it’s easy to go unnoticed.

Drum Beat Evolution!!!!


I’m totally in.

Count me in.

This will be my first actual game, let alone first time in the compo.

I plan on using Java through the Netbeans IDE.

Have you heard of the Video Game crash of ’83? My game will probably cause the Video Game crash of ’12.
