    Blazing Lizard is proud to announce our newest game, [app]iSkyDive![/app]
    iSkyDive!

    Here are the high level details:


    • Utilizes our proprietary 3D engine! Our engine allows for vibrant graphics and ultra smooth framerates!
    • Intuitive use of the accelerometer to control your character during freefall and while parachuting. Shake the phone to deploy the parachute!
    • Addictive, goal-based gameplay. Can you land on all the landing zones?

    NOTE: The current video up on YouTube is kinda blurry. We'll upload a HD version first thing tomorrow morning that'll really showcase the graphic quality of the game.

    Looks like it could be fun...

    What are you pricing it at? Is there going to be a Lite version too?

    Cool concept!

    I suggest reshooting the video; the focus is way off, which means bad presentation of a cool looking game.

    Cheers!

    Jesus Christ I'm sick of these "iSuck" names. They're not clever and they're boring as hell. What is this, the nintendo 64?

    Kind of reminds me of Pilotwings for SNES.. I use to love that game :D

    How many different levels/locations are there? And is there more then one game mode or do you just try to land in the target?

    question bout the game: are there obstacles in your way when free falling? cause otherwise you would master it pretty quickly and it would be the same thing just with different landing zones (pretty much different backgrounds). does look interesting! What would be AWESOME in future updates is if you start in the clouds, dodging clouds, then approach a city of some kind, the city a blur, and then you need to make it through skyscrapers and dodge all kinds of stuff, and then maybe through a metro tunnel or something. really elaborate levels like that would be amazing! It would just be neat seeing the city as a dot, and then the cars as tiny moving dots, and soon being right among them and having some fast paced action.

    Each level has tons of landing targets on it so your goal will be to land on each bullseye. Some landing targets are a lot easier to land on than others!

    We're not sure how many levels we're going to ship with. I can say we'll release the game at a very consumer-friendly price point and will definitely add more levels later.

    Looks interesting enough, and we should just give it a chance before we start being cynical. Hopefully a new video will help.

    Yea, Pilotwings was definitely one of my fav games as well and we tried to make this game as approachable as the Skydiving mode in that masterpiece

    Nice recovery from Peep Show. BlazingLizard has gone from hated to acknowledged slightly positively. We expect high things from you, flamboyant reptile!
