    Hello lovely people, hope you're all well!

    New game time from Quantum Sheep! YAY :D

    Firstly, let's start with a video! Here's the launch vid for Gravitrixx on YouTube!



    As you can (hopefully) see, it's a gravity based puzzle/maze game, inspired in part by the awesome TRON (new film in December!).

    Here are some screenshots:

    And here's the blurb!

    **DARE YOU CHALLENGE THE GRAVITRIXX???**

    Simply collect the blips and avoid the hazards - what could be easier?

    Over 100 levels of gravity-bending puzzles perfectly calibrated to test your mind, as well as your reflexes!

    Gorgeous TRON-like RETINA DISPLAY graphics by the developer of 'The Secret of Grisly Manor'

    Intuitive controls - switch the flow of gravity by touching the edges of the screen.

    New hazards every ten levels keep play fresh.

    Plays on all devices.

    Adjustable sound and music levels.

    Awesome music written using a ZX Spectrum by the brilliant Yerzmyey- http://yerzmyey.i-demo.pl/ - or play your own music in-game.

    Fully IOS4 compatible - pause the game and return at any time.

    Play any unlocked level in any order and skip levels in a grid.

    We hope you like the look of it!

    We're hoping for a November 22nd release (my birthday!) but it's all in the hands of Apple's lovely review team now!

    Any questions, please feel free to ask! I'll be online to answer them for a few hours, and will try and rope my colleague Jake in to say a few words too!

    Thanks to you all for your support - we can't wait to get this into your grubby paws!

    Cheers!

    QS :D
     
  2. I am a little biased since I worked on the art, but the game is very cool!
    Great puzzle game!

    Can't wait!

    Less than a week until release! I was Sheep's partner in crime on Gravitrixx; it's been a lot of hard work, but also a lot of fun - I hope you all enjoy playing it!

    Thanks guys!

    I should maybe mention some of the features!

    Each 'Grid' is made up of 10 levels. These are unlocked by 'stars' - the more you have, the more grids open up.

    Stars are awarded at the end of each level - 1 to five stars.

    If you've unlocked a grid, you can play any level from it.

    Additionally, if you fail a level, you aren't prevented from playing the next one. You can effectively skip levels so you're always playing, as long as you've amassed enough stars!

    The player lives are represented on your actual avatar itself as well, which we thought made sense. Every time you lose a life, your avatar loses a 'circle' - it's quite nice, and we hope people like it!

    Cheers!

    QS :D

    Cheers Ollie - we hope you like it :)

    As an aside, our new website has gone live at www.quantum-sheep.com - it's basically had a bit of polish added!

    Cheers,

    We are seriously thinking of doing an iPad version - it's simply a question of resizing 100+ levels worth of objects and moving them into the right positions :)

    There will be a 'lite' version - sort of - in December. It'll have different levels in it, and a Xmas theme!

    It's tentatively called 'Gravitrixxmas' - which makes me smile every time I type/say it :D

    Thanks for the kind words, Songbird!

    QS :D
