Eclipse Game Interview Talk About Lack of Online in Super Toy Cars & More

Below is an excerpt from a Nintendo Life interview with Eduardo Jimenez from Eclipse Games..

NL: With an upcoming patch aiming to add online leaderboards alongside a few other features, can we expect to see some form of online multiplayer implemented in the future as well?

EJ: In this patch we are adding leaderboards (global and friends only), off-TV play mode, and we’ve ironed out most collision issues highlighted by reviews. We’re also fixing a couple of crashes too. We may still need another patch for bugs in the editor and other stuff.

Online multiplayer is not currently planned. Why? Well, for starters as you know developing online multiplayer for a game is no easy feat. We already have it working for PC, but we’re using Steam libraries to help us with that. We would need to write a lot of new code to port the online version from PC to Wii U.

Finally, and this is particularly important, we only have a test kit and a dev kit. That means we can only test 2 player multiplayer and not in the best circumstances (2 dev kits would work better). Even if could afford to buy more kits, which we can’t at the moment, we’re only 3 people in this team, we can hardly do 4-5 player tests.

In PC it was so much easier because we could just release a beta version to some friends and do 4-5 players tests. That’s not so easy in Wii U.

That all said, we may talk to Nintendo about it and see if there’s some sort of middleware we could use to try to get online multiplayer up and running with what we have. I’ve heard there are solutions (like Photon) that could be of help with that. I’m not sure how reliable it is to do most tests in PC and then only 2 player tests on Wii U. It sounds very risky if you ask me, but on the other hand so many people are asking for online multiplayer…

Ice Cream Surfer Review

Below is a portion of a NWR Review...

While delightfully insane, the game is a bit problematic is that there are just six levels. This could be excused if the game had any kind of leaderboard, but the Miiverse community is sadly the only form of online competition available. Fortunately the game does feature five playable characters, each with their own set of attacks. Ace is perfect for the shoot 'em up beginner, while Sailor Twister can only be recommended for the players with a solid grasp on the genre. It helps that the game is really fun to replay and will take you 20 to 40 minutes depending on your skills. Next to this, you can play it together with a friend in co-op, which also adds to the replay value.
