Jet Car Stunts 4.

Jet Car Stunts

Release Date: November 13, 2009
Jet Car Stunts is a fun, over the top, 3D driving game, with massive jumps, mid-air hoops, floating platforms, spiral roadways, outlandish maneuvers and impossible environments. **** MODES OF PLAY **** The game features two play modes: * Platforming - the player maneuvers the car from roadway to roadway, performing connecting stunts to reach the finish line. * Time Trails - the player races around stunt-filled circuits to beat the lap records. Each mode of play is packed full of level content, increasing in difficulty, through 25 Platforming levels and 11 Time Trail levels. There is enough content for long, lasting game play. **** CONTROLLABILITY **** The car handling has been designed from the ground up for the accelerometer. The controls are easy, precise and fun. So much so that the player can hug the edge of a corner, using a jet assisted power-slide, and still feel perfectly in control. The car also features mid-air flight controls, allowing the player to nudge the angle of flight and adjust speed with air-braking. It feels very natural to play and we believe it to be the best driving experience on the iPhone to date. **** CONNECTIVITY **** Jet Car Stunts uses OpenFeint for community/leader board options. So let's see who are the best players in the world, we dare you!

Canabalt

Release Date: October 1, 2009
"Canabalt is pure genius." -necessarygames.com "It's going to be quite some time before you find something so simple so thrilling again." -Offworld "I bought it last night, and next to Eliss and iDracula it's the best iPhone game I've yet played. The fast pace and one-button gameplay translate perfectly to Apple's ubiquitous little mobile device." -Rev. Burch, Destructoid "Canabalt is a fun diversion and sports slick, black and white pixel graphics." -IGN "This "daring escape" platformer is simply beautiful and beautifully simple." -Kotaku "Canabalt is actually much more intense than you'd assume of a game which requires a single finger to play." -GameSpy "It's all very lovely and full of poignant subtext. And awesomeness. Canabalt is a prime example of a simple idea executed extremely well." -JayIsGames "I have never seen a concept so richly and successfully realized in such a simple yet stunningly complete form. Canabalt represents the power and potential of small independent games." -gameinmind.com "Music is another component that is just perfect - it enhances the strange and unsettling setting of the game and also gives a sense of speed with a hint of hope that quick feet might be the salvation to the horror." -bartsnews.net "Fast load times combined with short (yet exciting) game sessions really make for an attractive game to play on a mobile device." -TouchArcade NOTE: We had a final quote here that was a kind of indie game developer in-joke, that we thought lent our collection of hyperbolic praise a humble, human touch, but apparently some of our reviewers have absolutely no sense of humor, so it has been removed!

Offworld Nominated for the IGF ‘Innovation in Mobile Game Design' award. *** DESCRIPTION *** Eliss is a groundbreaking game that uses multi-touch in a way never before seen. Your job is to keep up harmony in an odd universe made of blendable planets. Touch-control multiple planets at once, join them together into giant orbs or split them up into countless dwarf planets, and match their size with the squeesars. Wipe off the stardust, resist to the attraction of the vortex and other space phenomena, and slow down the passage of time. Each of the 25 levels will require creative ways and strategies in using your fingers. Warm up your hands, you’re up for some serious finger gymnastics in the bizarro galaxy. Eliss Lite contains 3 fully playable sectors (out of 25 from the full version). *** MORE PRAISE *** Overview of the press reviews at: toucheliss.com “There's no game in the AppStore that uses multitouch so fully. [...] Eliss is not to be missed.” Touch Arcade “Eliss is the kind of game that gets me excited about the iPhone as a game platform.” 1UP “Eliss is every bit as bold and fresh as Pong, Pac-Man or Tetris were when they first came out.” Pocket Gamer “The multi-touch controls are a revelation—probably the best example we’ve seen.” Cult Of Mac "Some of the best use of multi-touch that I have ever seen." Bytejacker “It cannot be stressed enough that good visual and sound production can elevate a great game to a sublime one; and that's what Eliss is, a sublime techno-toy.” AppleInsider
