Backflip Studios, who brought us Ragdoll Blaster and the recently-released Strike Knight, has joined forces with Team Phobic (Bounce On, Bounce On 2) to shortly bring us Tunnel Shoot, a ... tunnel shooter ... somewhat reminiscent of Boost 3D, but with a little more neon glow.

Gameplay involves zipping down a series of tunnels festooned with obstacles and enemies bent on your destruction.  Don't crash, don't blow up, and hold onto your hat.

See the developers' gameplay video:

Tunnel Shoot looks like fun -- we're anxious to give it a try when it makes its App Store debut in mid-June.

And, while we're talking Backflip Studios, have a look at Ragdoll Blaster 2 [App Store],  which is on sale this weekend for $0.99 (down from $2.99).

    Looks kind of fun. But it needs to go faster more like the game "Boost". It just seems to go a little slow down the tunnel.

    Maybe it speeds up in higher levels.

    "Hold on to your hat" ? Hmm, seems kind of slow to me. Looks nicely done, but I can't help feeling the game needs a little injection of 'Torus Trooper': http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzE3-Sgq-Dw

    Yummy neon 3D vectors, I like.

    Aha. This reminds me of that part in Jak 3 where you have to go down to the Catacombs.

    I know there are plenty like this, but that's just what I was reminded off.

    Looks a lot like the app store game "Vektrax" except slower. And without open tunnels.

    Looks cool, but the sound effects are very, very annoying. And the music isn't great either.

    Just a bit more variety -- the speed isn't bad - particularly if you have to shoot/maneuver past enemies rather than racing; the visuals are a knock out. First thing that came to mind was Stun Runner. Speaking of which - why hasn't anyone done a Tempest 2010 or something! Would easily work well with the touch controls.

    It's going to need to be a lot faster and have a lot more of variety (more enemies, more themes (maybe some caves... magma tubes... blood veins... I can think of a lot of tubular themes,) bosses... more track shapes (think Tempest... or F-Zero... the whole way the track can unroll and lay flat... or have you ride on the outside rather than inside of a tube... or have gaps that you'll fall into if you're not quick to avoid...)

    Add or no buy from me. I already played this kind of thing from High Voltage on the Wii Ware (forgot the name,) the game was dull as hell and I'm not about to drop more money on a clone.

      (If it's got nothing new to add, that is.)

      And less irritating sound effects, they're just annoying as hell.
