I saw a few of you on the forum already notcied this so I wanted to highlight to you all our upcoming game Icebreaker - a Viking Voyage. We have put a ton of effort into this game and it is packed to burtsting point with variety, nice touches and side routes that go beyond what you might normally expect from a Physics puzzle game making it much more of an adveture.

I have attached some shots here but there is much more info and imagery on the official page for the game here: http://www.nitrome.com/press/icebreaker-ios

We are following all the comments you make on here and while your best going to get a responce on the official page we will try to answer questions you have here aswell

"Coming soon." as if... Where's Super Feed Me may I ask?

Besides, someone cloned this game on the App Store already

Edit: Found this! http://www.nitrome.com/iphone/ It says Super Feed Me is put on hold and that Ice Breaker is 80% complete and a top secret project is 20%.

Yeah I know, I was iratated by that at first too, until I looked at the screen shots for the new and improved ice breaker and felt even more excitement than super feed me gave me.
It looks full on awesome, probably my #1 most anticipated game now.


And yeah Vikings slice already made a clone, but it's been removed from the AppStore, it kinda reminds me of the situation with spry fox and triple town... There was a clone In the AppStore, but it appeared that spry fox could not pursue legal action because they didn't have a competing game on the iOS market. My theory is, nitrome wanted to take legal action but couldn't because it's competing game was not on the same platform as the clone, so it stopped super feed me to work on getting this one out ASAP so they can start legal proceedings too.

Going to be a great game, really looking forward to it.
Hope they didn't mess with the original too much, I'm a little but worried about the "boss battles and enemies" but hopefully itll be cool.

I wouldn't say I'm as excited for this as for Super Feed Me, but I definitely had some good times playing the ol' flash version of this

I am glad to hear you are still following our game Super Feed Me and keen so see it released. It is currently on hold while we finish Icebreaker after which we would like to think we will pick it up again if we do well enough from Icebreaker.

It was a hard decission to make putting it on hold but we are a small team and the game lacked organisation so was going to take a long time to complete. At the same time we have been getting other games ripped off all the time in the app store. We decided that the best way to both tackle this and to get something on the store was to work on a more focused release that we were likely to finish in a more realistic timeframe that we could stick to. That project is Icebreaker and though it is more focused I don't think we could help ourselves going over the top....it has taken a few months more than we planned and it is much like Super Feed Me a real labour of love that we hope people are going to love!

You can find out more about Super Feed Me at the updated site:

Yesssss! So glad this Is actually happening
Was worried it may be a promise full of air at first, but it seems legit.

Screw V.S IT'S DELETED ! making room for Ice Breaker. Woot.

I'm certain it'll do well,I could bet my left bumcheek on it,(it's ah MAZING!) so hopefully that means SFM is still coming!


Ps noticed a few more clones on the AppStore, there's a skywire clone, and also a hot air clone.
They play terribly in comparison to the nitrome originals!

I'm a sucker for the clones because I enjoy nitrome so much, that I'll buy a clone if that grants me the priviledge of playing great games on my iPad, but unfortunately the games are rarely great, they are cheap clones to make a quick buck, especially the 2 I listed about. They suck majorly. Cute graphics though, but don't be fooled. Gameplay is horrific.

There names are
Little skywire : little flower
Little skywire 2
Little skywire 3

Balloon bonaza: panorama concepts
