Show us your completed creations made in Construct 2

Hi there, folks! I'd like to introduce our debut game - TRAMBO - available now on the App Store!



Trambo is a fast paced, minimalistic - and HARD - action platformer.

Today is the launch day - and we just got featured by Apple! Wow. You can find us the New This Week -features list.

We wanted to combine exceptionally tight and simple gameplay mechanics with awesome retro aesthetics that send those warm 8-bit vibes we all still love. The controls are invisible and work very nicely - jumping is automatic and you control the character simply by tapping and holding the screen. Feel free to try!

Some screenshots and a gameplay trailer can be found here!

First review is out already: Pocketgamer, out at midnight.

We also got some attention from Toucharcade and Slidetoplay!robotecollective2014-01-30 19:47:38

Aw yiss! We have uploaded new screenshots showing some obstacles and traps you encounter in your adventures. http://imgur.com/a/EyR17

Right now we're working hard on a first look trailer. It's hard to show how gameplay and controls work in static images.

About controls: we have two big (invisible) buttons. You tap and hold right side of the screen to move right, and vice versa. Jumping is automatic, you just have to find the right spots to do it.

The gameplay of Trambo can be summarized with one sentence: "Whatever you do, don't stop!"

Thank you! That's a reasonable observation.

We have an idea behind the poster, however. It's purpose is to remind the gamers of the 80's and NES - back then companies used this kind of dynamic graphics in their game covers and marketing. Pixel art is used a lot these days and we need to stand out somehow.

The game really looks much better and more polished in motion, I assure you. That being said, we are aiming for a minimalistic, but stylish gaming experience. Sword&Sworcery is a great example of the style we're trying to achieve.

As I said, we're working hard on a first look trailer at the moment and will post it here as soon as it's ready!robotecollective2013-09-08 10:19:54

In my opinion your in-game design looks a bit poor, unfortunatelly. I like idea of minimalistic design and colours of game, I like poster a lot, but your level design looks inconsistent. Pixel-art character doesn't fit there. I also don't like rounded corners and overall proportions.

Looks pretty slick! I'm getting some very minimal art deco vibes from the visuals. Reminds me of the intro to the 90's Batman cartoon.
