    Hi guys
    This is our first bigger game made with BB.
    We hope you enjoy it.


    [​IMG]

    DOWNLOAD:
    Google Play
    DOWNLOAD: AppStore (rejected by apple) :(



    The incredible 3 in 1 Game!
    Do you like the legendary old school games "sokoban", "pac-man" and "bomber-man"?
    Than you will love Hurryman, which is the ultimate mix between these three games!
    The goal of the game is to clear the way with the tnt-boxes.

    Play this easy one touch game in 2 different modes:
    ◉ Surviving Mode: More than 30 randomize Levels (how far can you go?)
    ◉ Challenge Mode: 25 difficult Levels (more Levels coming soon)

    Play the game with 7 different Characters.
    Unlock all characters, because everyone has his own skills:
    ◉ Hurryman: Default Player
    ◉ Slowmoman: Take it easy, play the game a little bit slower...
    ◉ Invisibleman: It's to hard to play (only for masters!)
    ◉ Portalman: It's a surprise... (be careful it's very hard to play!)
    ◉ Speedman: Play the game a little bit faster (can you handle it?)
    ◉ Miniman: With the Mini Man you have enough space, you can just walk easy through the level...
    ◉ TNTman: He's the best player, he always have enough TNT.

    Looks great! Can not wait to play this. I had no idea we could make a Pac-man/Bomberman game like this! Cheers to opening my eyes a bit more on BB. Keep on Boxing!

    sorry guys, but there will be no ios version...
    apple rejected my game! the reason: "Hurryman is a copycat of pacman"
    I'm very sad about this decision, because I spent many hours in this game... :(
    I also not understand this reason, because the game has only ideas from pacman, but it is not a copy of it!
    on the appstore are thousands of super mario copycats and my game will be rejected?!!! I have no words for this...

    @MAC420: yes, you're right. it's easy, there are always 2 portals on both sides (in & out).

    Since Apple and Google have a problem with the game, I want to sell it.
    If anyone is interested to buying the game, please pm me.
    maybe one of you is more successful with the game.

    I don't know...they have deleted it without any comment...(I asked for the reason... no answer)
    currently, I have no energy to change all the graphics.
    it's really frustrating...

    This was the answer from apple:

    Hello,

    Thanks for your time on the phone today.

    As we discussed, your app has been rejected for the App Store Review Guideline detailed below.

    Guideline 4.3 - Design



    We noticed that your app provides the same feature set as other apps submitted to the App Store; it simply varies in content or language, which is considered a form of spam. As we discussed, the overall feel of the game, colors, gameplay and graphics are substantially similar to games submitted by other developers to the App Store.

    The next submission of this app may require a longer review time, and this app will not be eligible for an expedited review until this issue is resolved.

    Next Steps

    - Review the Design section of the App Store Review Guidelines.
    - Ensure your app is compliant with all sections of the App Store Review Guidelines and the Terms & Conditions of the Apple Developer Program.
    - Once your app is fully compliant, resubmit your app for review.

    When creating multiple apps where content is the only varying element, you should offer a single app to deliver differing content to customers. If you would like to offer this content for purchase, it would be appropriate to use the in-app purchase API.

    Submitting apps designed to mislead or harm customers or evade the review process may result in the termination of your Apple Developer Program account. Review the Terms & Conditions of the Apple Developer Program to learn more about our policies regarding termination.

    We hope you will consider making the necessary changes to be in compliance with the App Store Review Guidelines and will resubmit your revised binary.

    If you feel that this rejection was made in error, and believe your app is in compliance with the App Store Review Guidelines, you may submit an appeal to the App Review Board. Please allow up to one business day for an initial response from the App Review Board.

    Please feel free to contact me, if you need further clarification.

    Best regards,
    App Store Review

    Is the game still on Google Play? Link doesn't work.
    I was doing some google image search just to see if something similar would come up but no luck cuz I have no image.

    I'm always curious on these things that's why i was asking.

    @Xoctrebla: Nope sorry, Google deleted the game without any comment...

    (I think, the only thing, which was really similar to Pacman, are these many coins on the field...I asked Apple if the coins are the problem. But apple can't say anything about this...they only send me every time the guidlines...they also can't tell me, which game is similar to my game.)

    Actually, the reason why I think it was rejected was the game artwork. I had this problem once when I used game assets purchased from Graphic River.

    You could approach Apple again giving them the link in your appeal to the game art showing that is it on general sale. I would also remove the reference to Pac Man and Bomberman in your app description and try to be a bit more creative there too.

    Agree with @spicedbeangames I think the description reference to sokoba, Pacman and Bomberman may have gotten it in trouble

    @spicedbeangames and @DariusGuerrero:
    Thank you for your comments.
    I already have changed the description, but apple still has a problem with the graphics.
    In addition, I have already sended the link from graphicriver to apple. without success. (I will no more buying graphics from graphicriver...)

    Here is my new description:
    Hurryman is the ultimate mix between 3 popular retro games. Which retro games? Let's find out and play the game...
    The goal of the game is to clear the way with the tnt-boxes and reach the target as soon as possible.
    Important: Think Before You Move.

    Play this easy one touch game in 2 different modes:
    ◉ Surviving Mode: More than 30 randomize Levels (how far can you go?)
    ◉ Challenge Mode: 25 difficult Levels (more Levels coming soon...)

    Play the game with 7 different Characters.
    Unlock all characters, because everyone has his own skills:
    ◉ Hurryman: Default Player
    ◉ Slowmoman: Take it easy, play the game a little bit slower...
    ◉ Invisibleman: It's to hard to play (only for masters!)
    ◉ Portalman: It's a surprise... (be careful it's very hard to play!)
    ◉ Speedman: Play the game a little bit faster (can you handle it?)
    ◉ Miniman: With the Miniman you have enough space, you can just walk easy through the level...
    ◉ TNTman: He's the best player, he always have enough TNT.

    Man that sucks. I don't know what Apple are up to really, especially when you look at some new releases and see clones all over the place.

    Perhaps you can take a look at any recent releases AFTER you submitted this game to see if there's anything clones and use that in an appeal, stating how Helix Jump clone 23567 is ok, but your game is not.
    https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/helix-smasher-bouncing-ball/id1437876911?mt=8

    Or go back to the drawing board.
