No lie, there’s a special place in our hearts for Astronaut Spacewalk ($1.99). It was one of the first games we did a TA Plays for, and the end result was a goofy, almost unintelligible video that featured Eli and I struggling to even turn around to do a simple task. At one point, we decided to abandon the spacewalk in favor of thrusting back to Earth. You can imagine how well that went.
It’s mainly funny because Spacewalk is a really sharp simulation that demonstrates just how rough it is to walk in space. Who knew not having gravity or oxygen or limited fuel and barely any thrust could be so tough on a guy fixing a spaceship?
Anyway, here’s the news: Astronaut Spacewalk is coming to iPad in the very near future, and it’ll pack in some improvements including new UI, a new control layout, and even a new soundtrack. That’s a lot of stuff.
We’ve got some images of the iPad version, including a very special shot of the Hubble with some interesting names on it. Naturally, we’ll be doing a TA Plays of this version of the game as soon as it hits, which again, will be pretty soon.
