Boob Rescue
« on: October 21, 2014, 05:15:32 PM »

Hi guys, we just released Boob Rescue, a little side project we have been working on for a while. Give it a try if you like!

The game is a simple and easy going puzzle game, and deals with the rather difficult topic of breast cancer. Its free to download and play with optional in-app purchases. The great thing about it is that 10% of each in-app purchase will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. This means each purchase helps funding the fight against cancer.
We hope the game will be fun for people to play and will help raise breast cancer awareness as well as generate some research funding.

Of course we used NGUI for the 2D art. Here is a little post-mortem for you guys.
There wasn't really any heavy lifting for NGUI in this project. We had a couple of windows, draggable panels, buttons, etc. Performance was good on both Android and iOS.

What went well:
- The lighting fast workflow with NGUI made life easy :)
- Atlas management for HD/SD atlases well supported by NGUI. This was helpful when dealing with extreme mobile resolutions
- We supported multiple languages, so the build in localization system was a nice bonus

What went not so well:
- The depth issues when dealing with many sprites in different panels plus particle effects in between sprites were quite tricky to get right
- Rather cumbersome when working with NGUI local coordinates + world space coordinate system (especially when animating things in relation to different NGUI objects)

Keep up the good work, NGUI has become a really great package!

If you want to try out our game, it is out on Android now and in review status in the Apple AppStore. Hopefully they will approve us soon (has been over two weeks already).
