The small indie studio Juicy Beast made a pretty big splash on iOS last year by bringing their hit Flash catapulting game Burrito Bison [$0.99] to the App Store, and they're getting ready to unleash their next project on the mobile gaming masses. It's called Knightmare Tower, and the iOS version is an enhanced remake of the Flash original, which the Juicy Beast is proud to note has more than 10 million plays and was one of Kongregate's Top 5 Action Games of all time.
The iOS version of Knightmare Tower looks to improve upon its predecessor with improved graphics, new intro and outro cutscenes, a new combo system, a streamlined UI, mobile-friendly tilt controls (no virtual buttons at all, apparently), and many more tweaks and balances to parts of the game. As you can see from the trailer below, Knightmare Tower almost looks like a variation of Burrito Bison mixed with Doodle Jump and tons of combat, which sounds completely awesome.
Knightmare Tower for iOS is finished and shipped off to Apple, with a scheduled release date of August 1st and a price of $2.99. If you're curious how the controls work, you can check out this video of the game being played on a full-sized iPad. Spoiler alert: the controls seem fine. Keep an eye out for Knightmare Tower on August 1st and stop by our forums for more discussion on this upcoming game.
