Thread: Cybersaurus - Native iPhone 3D Adventure Shooter!

I tried uninstalling a few (cybersaurus wasn't detected), but that caused my iPhone to reset and completely lockup. This thing is locked up worse than my old iPod Video in the middle of a movie.

    I finally managed to get it to power down, but it WILL not load beyond the apple welcome icon. Thanks guys, for giving me an extra 3-5 hours of work on a nice Saturday (and goodbye contacts and pictures). And shame on this site for allowing a new app on the mainpage which has caused the majority of users nothing but problems. I stupidly thought I could trust what I saw here. Ugh, back to complete and utter caution/suspicion. And BTW, this is the first app I've added in a week, so yeah--I'm pretty darn sure this is what caused the problem. It may have only been a small piece in the puzzle, but it was definitely the catalyst for my iphones death.
    Its called Restore mode.

    Plug it in to your computer, SSH into it, delete the application and try rebooting your phone.

    I had to do this when TTR came out. For some reason it would mess up my phone.

    I installed this app on my 1.1.4 and it worked perfectly. I did notice that it ran just a bit sluggish unless I turned the music off and then it ran great. I think the developer did a great job on it. Anyone that thinks this game is ugly doesn't have a clue what's involved in creating a game like this.

    I was thinking about that as I was ssh'd in to search for some video files I took before restoring--I didn't think it'd help, so I just nuked it : \ Well, good to know for future reference. Kudos for that. Do a lot of apps do the same thing when they're new? I'm not as angry now, but I wish they'd at least test things thoroughly before advertising them on the darn homepage

    you guys need to add the developer's source: iphone3dgames.com
    the file size of that version should be 3.4 mb, as opposed to the 3.5 mb that may appear before. The 3.4 mb version installed fine for me on an ipod touch.

    Yeah, I think something funky is going on. It may not be the developers app that's the problem. Apparently some installer repo's are having major problems as we speak. Just about everything from iClarified is also causing "main execution script" errors. I'm going to give this the benefit of the doubt and edit my original post to reflect this. If nothing else, people should wait a while before trying to download this : \

    schweitzer,
    It could be an installer problem.
    In fact you never launched the game executable.
    Believe me,I installer and uninstalled a thousand times from my repo without problems.


    EDIT:

    I passed the last 2 hours testing install and uninstall again with my 8 gb iPhone v. 1.1.4 .
    I tested it in normal and critical disk space conditions from modmyi repo without any problem.
    Just to let you know.
    ANYWAY I noticed that the version from the modmyi repo is still the version that does not work on ipod touch.
    I will contact the administrator to let him fix it.
    As you pointed out the size of the zips are different ,so in the meantime download from my repo http://iphone3dgames.com.

    Folks, version 1.1 is on the repo, and is the version that works on both iPod Touch and iPhone.

    iPhone 16GB 1.1.4 works for me. The only criticism is the movement keys...how about accelerometer for movement & tap for shoot?

    SSH and delete. I've gotten that spinning wheel for other reasons and this solution has always worked for me (I pretty much hate restoring) so try this first.

    this is a piece of sh*t game.. why would the developer make it 9.95? F*cking super moneky ball is only 9.95!

    While maybe a technical achievement for any small developer it simply is a horrible game based around a concept that works great for a normal gamepad but fails on the iPhone/iPod.

    It simply is not fun to play, people need to think of new game designs (or adapt good ones like Monkey Ball) to the iPhone. Good example is I LOVE Super Mario Bros. but it is unplayable with a touch screen.

    So developers keep that in mind, you can't just make a touch screen control pad and expect to have a fun game. Use the accelerator and touch screen in fun and innovative ways.

    Here's a free idea, a geometry wars or SHUMP style game where you control the character with the tilt controls and touch to shoot (also can be reversed).

    It would be nice if Installer indicated which apps are NOT free prior to installing.

    I tried the game... definitely a 10 on the cool factor, but playability on this device is lacking in a big way. Too bad there's no D-pad on the phone!

    and also, try to make a game thats as "ugly" as this game. ud be surprised at how difficult it is.
    or u could get it for free off torrents

    I am very impressed by this game, graphics-wise. I understand exactly how hard it is to program something like that, especially with limited resources of a mobile device. The gameplay does sucks though...I think using the accelerometer could do wonders for this game, or maybe some form of auto target. The up/down movements are the ones that are the hardest for me...

    When asked what he would say to the columbine killers, Marilyn Manson said, "I would say nothing to them. I would listen to what they have to say, because that's what nobody else did" from the movie Farenheit 9/11

    Hi,
    Note that in the latest version accelerometer is supported.
    Now playability is much better and you get also a higher frame rate since
    touch screen is a cpu eater...

    looks fun, but it seems like a rip off of mechwarrior 1 and 2
