NanoMechs is a high speed, multiplayer shooter for the iPhone. Awesome real-time multiplayer action over WI-FI, with gorgeous graphics. Gameplay can be compared to popular 1st person shooters, except in 2D!!

The Synopsis
Welcome to the nanocosm of NanoMechs: The human race had made a difficult decision. In the distant future our children had no other choice; Nearly all natural resources had been depleted. Warping space was theorized impossible, worm holes were dangerous and unpredictable. Nevertheless energy was pure and bountiful.

Left with one planet as their home, they developed a technology to shrink the entire human race. The processing purified them, it left them with the most pristine portion of the their cellular make up; although extremely small. As a result the Earth was able to begin replenishing itself. For safety, they relocated themselves to multiple colony satellites anchored to the earth, this was more than enough “world” to expand the human race to over 100 billion individuals. Some of them even considered this “heaven”.

Then they developed the NanoMechs, bio-mechanical militaristic mobile suits, to protect their nanoscopic world from impending doom.

@Cameron: Thank you! We put a huge amount of thought into usage of the UI. You can actually press anywhere on the screen and this allows you to fire wherever by simply tapping on target or in the direction of your target. Movement is handled by tilting the device.

We did seriously consider using analog D-pads for movement and even a separate one for firing. Ultimately what we've developed made more sense to us given the iPhones/iTouches uniqueness when it comes to it's user input paradigm. Who knows though, we may reconsider it in the future if the demand is there.

@Sherwin Gao: Thank you! We are trying to publicize it well, thank you. If you have a chance, please rate the thread here and the youtube video you can also get more info from the site nanomechs.theorian.com

We did use some open source code and libraries to develop the game. However, no game engine. We were very careful to stay within license params.

Nice graphics. What gesture do you use to trigger the weapons (i.e. how do you fire?)

This looks slick!! Congrats!! Make sure you guys publicize it well :)

Just wondering, was this done all from scratch or did you guys use some external libraries such as an open source game engine?

THANK YOU! We can't wait until Apple approves it!
