The Muteki Corporation, creators of Topple 2 [99¢ / Free] and The Battle of Pirate Bay [99¢ / Free] had a new game hit the App Store recently, Super Jetpack Dragon IV: Village Burntopia [iPhone: Free / iPad: $1.99]. Similar to Adult Swim's free online flash game, Robot Unicorn Attack, Super Jetpack Dragon IV: Village Burntopia is a high-scoring endurance games where players play as a dragon running across the countryside capable of jumping, briefly gliding, and smashing through walls depending on which side of the screen you touch.

Scoring high involves picking up meat, burning every town you come across, and most importantly, not dying. As you get farther and farther your dragon runs even faster, creating a slow but steady difficulty curve. There are also a bundle of Plus+ achievements to unlock, and the entire game is set to some awesome rock music.

The iPhone version is completely free, with a brief interstitial ad (currently for Bing.com) between loading the game and playing. If you want the HD iPad version, be prepared to fork out two bucks for basically the same game with higher resolution graphics.

Sure, Super Jetpack Dragon IV: Village Burntopia is a little on the simple side, but I have a hard time complaining about a fun free game that helps me pad my Plus+ gamer score.

    Right, and now please explain again, why great games as Eco P. and Above don't get a front site review? This is just a bad joke ;)

    I enjoyed this game on the iphone and will look into the HD version when I get my ipad on Friday. (finally)

    I like the way this site operates and also the way a front page story or review is chosen. If a game is great and does not receive front page coverage, I can assure you that the great members here will be talking heavily about it in the forums. I buy enough games great, bad and average to confirm that.

    The controls on this are so broken. What a sad attempt at a flash port to the iPhone os. Also if I see another bing ad in a game I might end up hurting someone. I refuse to even bother looking up what bing is just out of spite of their friggin spam ads everywhere omg when will it stop.

      Cilo,

      I'm curious what you mean by "the controls are so broken" - is there a particular issue you're having? We're getting ready to push the 1.1 update to Apple and would love any feedback you or others have on top of the plans we already have for this game in-house.

        Hi Bryan,
        I'm experiencing frame rate issues with the game. I have an iPhone 3G with the latest firmware and rebooting the device didn't help much.

        I'm having the same problems as Cilo and samthelion. The frame rate is sketchy at best on my iPhone 3G, but even worse is the 50% chance to make a jump or hover. Seems like the touch input is tied to the display loop.

    We've said this multiple times. If you think a game should be reviewed, send an email. Do not spam the comments. Each time I see these games mentioned in unrelated articles makes me want less and less to cover them as I don't want to reward this behavior from regular members who should know better.

    The controls are unresponsive, tap and hold right to boost works always, tap to jump and hover work half the time and take a lot of input to register.
