Illusion Labs has let us know that their next priority for Sway will be to release more levels, new game elements and possibly even some other new features.

We reviewed Sway and found the entire package to be wonderfully put together with some of the most innovative controls we'd seen. Meanwhile, our forum users seem almost universally ecstatic about the game. Really, the only complaint has been the length of the levels provided, and so these new levels will certainly be a welcome update.

That being said, after having spent even more time with Sway in its current form, this game does offer some of the most fun to be had on the iPhone. While you certainly can "brute force" your way through many of the levels, going back and trying to complete the time challenges really makes you improve your actual "swaying" skills.

Here's a video of the same level we showed in our review video, but now shooting for a gold medal.


[ Full HD version | Low Bandwidth version ]

The game really feels like a true iPhone platformer and we do highly recommend it.

App Store Link: Sway, $4.99

    Wow, you're good! I've just downloaded it and for me it's very difficult.

    Hey Frog,
    it's also a bit depending on your character.
    And the Ninja is really alot easier to control as you can see.
    So no worries, you will get a feeling for that game very soon :)

    Good point robot.

    I'm surprised Sway isn't a chart topper yet! More levels will me a welcome addition, I'm anxious to see what Anders was referring to in the forums as "new game elements", as well. Awesome game already and my favorite way to pass time on my phone.

    Btw, nice iTunes review "Toucharcade.com"! That is one of the rare Appstore reviews I've seen from you guys so I'm guessing you really like it and potential for epicness.

    If somone were to ask me which iPhone game best showcases it as a mobile gaming device, I would give a one word answer... "SWAY!"
    I think the controls are perfect, graphics are top notch, and overall gameplay is great. The main complaint from me is the same as everyone else, just not enough lvl's... This news of more lvl's and gamplay elements really has me excited!

    Hmmm... The little "ding!" noise that plays when you get a star sounds familiar...

    Anders - I LOVE YOUR GAME!

    nice to hear new levels are coming, i finished them quite quickly, although it is extremely challenging to go back and get golds on them all, which i havnt done yet.

    this has to be one of the funniest games, i just love flinging the little bugger around the screen, i find it 'too-funny', its the only game that i own that brings tears to mine and my friends eyes when we try to play this :)

    and for that, and that alone.... it was worth purchasing.

    this app went straight to my front page for quicker access :)

    the thing that annoys me, is that sound when you fall/die,

    Hi. It's a nice enjoyable game. I've finished it and I'm just trying out the new guys I saved. I like the ninja too--very versatile.
