I’ve almost finished my first iPad game (YAY!) and all I need to do
before I submit it to Apple is add a few sound effects. It’s a falling
blocks style game but I’ve added my own particular twist to it.
I’ve added some effects that I bought from audiojungle and some I’ve
done myself but I’m just not happy with them at all. I’ve been googling
for weeks, there’s loads of sites that offer effects but I just cannot
find what I’m looking for. They’re all either too simple, or too
complicated, or too long. Getting quite frustrated, I thought it would
be pretty easy to find what I need! :wallbash:
Anyway, does anyone know where I can find good quality game sound
effects suitable for a falling blocks puzzle game, not 8 bit plinks and
plonks, not overdone complicated stuff, but simple, elegant, short
sounds? Or would any sound designer like to produce some effects for me,
for a modest fee of course?

I’d suggest freesound.org, but I’m going to guess you must have already
come across it from a google search. It’s not easy to find stuff there,
but with patience you can usually find a lot.
Other than that, do you have a decent microphone? I often record my own
sounds with a Rode NG-2 shotgun mic and the results are pretty good.
Something to consider, as a mic is usually a lifetime investment
(assuming you handle it with care). It’s one of the best ways to get the
sounds you want.
Since you mentioned you bought your current samples I’d say - have you
tried istock? Game sfx definitely isn’t the main focus there, but it
wouldn’t hurt to narrow search to audio and give it a shot
Hm… we bought “good” mic and tried to simulate the sound as close as
possible (F.e. breaking bones can be simulated when you break ice from
On the other hand, recording some stuff is just all but impossible
(without having really large studio with huge budget) - in that case we
used google and bought some stuff.
Note: You can as well go with some standard mic for some 200$ - most
players won’t notice lower quality sound in contrast to studio stuff.
Especially if it is indie game.
