Tilt to Live Sale – This Weekend Only!


Tilty-Tilt Boom Boom Sale

All this weekend, the Tilty-Tilt Boom Boom Bundle is on sale on the App Store for just $2.99 (slashed down from $5.99)! Included, you’ll find three classic iOS arcade games: Tilt to Live, Tilt to Live 2: Redonkulous, and Tilt to Live: Gauntlet’s Revenge. Three great games for just three bucks! It’s a perfect opportunity to complete your collection, or to experience the destructive power of the accelerometer for the very first time.

Tilt to Live is the arcade game that started it all! Using precise, customizable tilt controls you’ll shock, shred, and nuke your way through hordes of relentless red dots using an arsenal of satisfying weapons, including cluster missiles, ice blasts, vortexes and more.

Tilt to Live 2: Redonkulous turned that formula up to 11, adding even crazier weapons like the laser mace and the “perforator”. Also a first for the series were new “weapon tricks” to multiply your points, challenging boss fights for those who lived to find them, and bonus rounds to push your highscore over the top.

Last but not least, Tilt to Live: Gauntlet’s Revenge is an uber-challenging spinoff, a Tilt to Live like no other. See how long you can survive without your precious weapons to help you. If you have what it takes to unlock the final gauntlet, you’ll go head-to-head with the Dot King himself.

All of these for just three bucks! But you’ll have to act fast, because this special sale ends Monday evening. You might also consider signing up for a reminder email for our upcoming cooperative board game, Space Food Truck. It’s coming to Steam later this year, with a tablet release planned shortly thereafter.

Gauntlet’s Revenge is FREE on Android


Gauntlet's Revenge AndroidSo, real talk, Gauntlet’s Revenge has been under-performing on Android as a paid app. By a whole lot. In light of this, in the spirit of making lemonade from our lemons, Gauntlet’s Revenge just went free with ads on Android! Now there’s nothing standing between you and your shot at the Dot King.

A “remove ads” IAP is included so you can play the game as it was originally intended. We are unbelievably sorry to the few players who did purchase the app. There’s just no way for us to exclude you from a change like this, and we totally understand if you’d like a refund on your purchase. Send your request through this form along with your Google Play order number and we’ll get it issued as soon as possible. We wouldn’t consider a drastic move like this unless it absolutely had to be done.

There are no plans to make changes to the iOS version of the game at this time.

Boom Boom Bargain


Happy HolidaysWe’ve squeezed in an iOS price drop before the App Store’s annual holiday lockdown. The Tilt to Live Tilty-Tilt Boom Boom Bundle will be available throughout the holiday season for just $3.99 USD (normally $5.99). So for a buck more than it costs for one Tilt to Live, you can grab all three! Would make a handsome gift for anyone unwrapping a new iDevice in the near future. Wink.

Alex is still locked away in his laboratory working on the Outwitters Android port (which is being discussed in more detail over here). That project doesn’t require any new artwork, so I’m left to my own devices for a while longer. To date, I have 7 different turn-based multiplayer games working as paper prototypes in Adobe Illustrator. Alex shifts his focus to prototyping in January, so we’re on track to have a good, large pool of projects to choose from.

I just realized that by the time we shift into production for Game 5, I’ll have been paper prototyping and marketing for more than 3 months. I have not opened Unity since early October. Hopefully I’ll remember how to do my job…

We’re Thankful for Our Fans


Tilty-Tilt Boom Boom Bundle
Happy Thanksgiving, Americans! May your turkeys be moist, and your stuffings be seasoned correctly. As we mentioned last week, today is release day for the Tilty-Tilt Boom Boom Bundle on the App Store. Remember, you have to buy before the end of November to get the full 44% off Tilt to Live, Tilt to Live 2:Redonkulous, and Tilt to Live: Gauntlet’s Revenge! Next month the savings will be reduced to 33% off (still not half bad). And if you already own one of those games, the bundle will actually discount itself by the price you’ve already paid so you can complete the collection.

Tilting your mobile device is the perfect exercise to burn off some of those extra calories you’re consuming today. That’s just science.

Save a Bundle


Tilty-Tilt Boom Boom BundleWith Tilt to Live: Gauntlet’s Revenge released, we now have 3 games in the series. A nice round number. It just feels right to put those three Tilt to Live games together in a bundle, and it feels even more right to call that bundle the Tilt to Live Tilty-Tilt Boom Boom Bundle, coming Thanksgiving Day to the App Store.

November 27th, you can be thankful for accelerometer-powered weaponry, the retry button, and 33% off when you buy Tilt to Live, Tilt to Live 2: Redonkulous, and Tilt to Live: Gauntlet’s Revenge in an App Store bundle! If you already own one of those games, the price you paid will automatically be discounted from the bundle price so you can complete your collection. As an added bonus, because the pilgrims told us to, we’re dropping the price even further to 44% off if you buy before the end of November.

Unfortunately, the whole bundling thing doesn’t provide a way for us to include our DLC gametypes or Tilt to Live HD’s Full Version IAP. But you will still get a heck of a lot of savings compared to buying the games individually!

Progress Re-Port


Gauntlet's Revenge AndroidGauntlet’s Android Revenge is moving along really smoothly. So far, the largest stumbling block has been a 30 character limit for app titles in Google Play. TtL:GR has 32 (when I bother to type it all out), leading to creative solutions like Tilt to Liv Gauntlet’s Revenge, Tilt 2 Live: Gauntlet’s Revenj, and about 30 other totally butchered versions of the name. We finally settled on “Tilt 2 Live Gauntlet’s Revenge”, and moved on with the actual business of porting the game.

We’re shooting for a November 17th release date, and will be pricing the game the same as its iOS brother: $2.99 USD.

In other news, surprise! We’re making it rain App Store promo codes. Get your Gauntlet’s Revenge on while these last:

Android, You’re Next


Gauntlet's Revenge - Coming Soon to Android!

Categories: Tilt to Live



Game 4, Gauntlet’s Revenge, is finally complete; another proud entry in One Man Left’s hall-o’-games. A hearty thank you to everyone that deemed it worthy of a download! We wish you the very best of luck in your campaign against the dot bots. Above is a YouTube playthrough we found for Lockdown on normal, and he finishes with only one man left! We’d love to see videos like this for hard mode, if any of you have the skill (here’s how).

There’s no denying the game is tough. We aimed to give you a real challenge to conquer, not just busy work. With practice, focus, and strategy these courses are doable, and telling your friends “I beat the Dot King” will really carry some weight. So far, only 29 human beings on planet Earth can make that claim!

And speaking of Gauntlet’s Revenge, would you help us find a good home for these App Store promo codes?
