App description: "SpinUp is a pixel-candy multitouch neo-arcade classic for iPad."
-game designer's Mom

"Spin Up is one of the most creative high-score games we've ever played... A Must Have!"
- Slide To Play

4.5/5 "Spin Up takes that standard formula and adds in a unique take and control scheme, making the entire concept feel totally fresh once again.
- Gamezebo

That's just about the only way I can describe Spin Up if I only had one word."
- G4TV, Best Mobile Games Weekly

Welcome to this frantic and dizzying action game that takes pure, raw fun of early arcade games into the new age of multitouch wonder!

Here's what's in for you:
unique yet instantly familiar "DJ-like" gameplay
frenetically paced and challenging fun
career mode with unlockable characters
screenful of pixel candy visuals of geeky SCI-FI environments
weapons, power-ups and nasty alien mutants
compete with your friends over Game Center
we'll keep updating with new characters and scenarios
compatible with new iPad with retina screen

The story begins like this:

"No one would have believed in middle of the 21st century,
that as we busied ourselves about our daily concerns,
our obsolete machines were secretly being transformed
by intelligences far greater than our own."

Can you raise up to the challenge and save the Earth ( again ) ?

I think this come from my NEED to have unique characters that are more than just reskins of one another. My first question when choosing a character in a game is what are each's pluses and minuses and if the difference is nothing more than window dressing the game has already lost major points.

I love what I can only assume is the computer terminals speaking off in the distance. Very eerie and give the impression of some weird automated thing babbling away in a huge bus terminal sized metallic tube.

I am still really enjoying this game and anxious to see the Game Center fix. I am up to the level 6 character - Valkyrie. Even though it is a pretty simple game, I think the developer really got things right with it. I hope it does well so we can get more content, although I have no idea what that should be.

Edit: Oh no! Now I am at level 8, TerrorTeen, and I am told I will be promoted when I get the next update. I am at the height of 1575. Even with the great level 8 attributes it gets tough at those altitudes! Hurry up with that update...

Hi guys,
Just wanted to thank you for your great support! As you have probably seen, the GameCenter fix is online, and I am glad to see I'm not even in top 50 players myself!

Next update will bring more characters, and more challenge! The discussion here about character progress and difficulty is being very very helpful in designing the future of this game.
All the best
