Shellrazer Dev-Blog 29: What we’re working on next!

09/05/2012

Welcome back followers of the fearsome!

          After an awesome and tiring PAX weekend we’re finally back in the office, and we’re ready to rock! As you’ve probably noticed in update 1.01 for Shellrazer, we’ve added a universe map that displays an island you can’t get to yet. It has a little ‘work in progress’ icon on it to show that we’re working on it! We’re creating new enemies, new weapons and new levels for World 2, and they are going to be awesome. We want to make sure they are properly balanced before we send out the next update.

          Here’s a new enemy that will be harassing your trampling turtle, the Yeti Marine! Yetis are a lot tougher than those goblins you’ve been pounding. Yetis are quite resourceful and utilize the frozen wasteland to their advantage, wielding impressive weaponry and tactics. We’ll be sure to show you all our mechanics and new enemies as the update progresses so thanks for checking it all out!

Another addition we just put in is a gallery so you can re-view the awesome level completion art by Jesse the Drawbarian! How cool is that?

Alright, that’s it for this week, keep those turtle cannons blazing!
– Nick

Hi,

There are a few possibilities:
If you are running on iOS 4, then this is a bug that I just fixed, and an update was submitted to Apple. It should be out soon!

If you are running iOS 5+, then it is likely running out of memory because of other programs being active in the background. You can try restarting the iPad completely (hold the power button for 5 seconds, then slide to power off. Then press the power button again to start the iPad, and try Shellrazer again).

Also, you can remove all active apps by double tapping the home button, and then pressing and holding one app in the bottom bar until the ‘x’ appears. Then close down each app.

Hope that helps! If you still have problems, please email us on shellrazer@slickentertainment.com so we can reply to your comments! :)
