  • I invented this Unicycle game

    Hi guys,
    I made this game, a few of you were able to beta test it, which was great! It's finally launched and I wanted to see what everyone thinks. And if you like it, give it some stars
    here's the link (iOS only, sorry)
    https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/unic...2937?ls=1&mt=8

    I've already sent you a message, but I thought I'd put it here as well.

    My students love it. When they played it on my IPad a bunch of them went straight to the App Store, and were disappointed that they couldn't find it. I know at least a few high school students in Colorado who will be happy to purchase your game.

    I will say that I find riding an actual unicycle easier than playing the game! It is a nicely done app.

      Yea, thanks for your input. I made the game free so all the kids can have fun with it. Currently no one has been able to beat my top score. (169)

        Cool! I'll try this on my friend's iphone later.

        Was it done in swift or objective c?

          objective c. you can't submit any swift apps to the app store yet. But I have already started other projects in swift.

            I'm curious to look at it, but I have an Android.
            This ride was brought to you today by the letter U and the number 1.

              I tried beta testing it but found it hard to make any real progress. As soon as I leaned too far forward I'd have to spin the wheel super fast and usually fall on my face in a second or two. Maybe I got to like 20 once. I may have been pedaling too fast in the first place.

              What's a good technique?

                Beta trier here too. The graphics, overall design and old world feel are charming. It makes me smile ever time I open the app.

                Like MuniOrBust I seldom get to 10 let alone much further. While no one likes a game that's too easy this one might be too hard. Once the guy is pedaling super fast and my finger is spinning on the control dial as quickly as it can I can't get him back under control.

                169 score is crazy! Nice job.

                Is there a way to dampen the sensitivity? Maybe getting gradually more difficult at future levels?

                Thank you for sharing. Sorry this is my first time giving any feedback.

                  I think my seat is too low.

                    I got to 19!! some how....

                    It's a really fun game, but I can't find the trick to get past 10. I consistently get to about 2-3 then am frantically spinning the dial to try and keep him from falling.

                    Also...what is the point of the coins? I've only earned 1 so far, but I can't figure out what I would use it for?

                      I made a video to answer your question.

                        You can buy a set of balloons to keep you up for 5 coins

                          Sorry. If this game gets popular enough for me to quit my real job (unlikely), I will make an android version.
