4NR - a discovery platformer by P1XL

Hi, we've just submitted our Universal app, 4NR, to the app store; should be available in the next week or two.



Here's the description:

"The path of life leads upward for the prudent, that he may turn away from Sheol beneath."

You were about to take the only path you knew, downwards into the depths.

Then a stranger appeared, offering you a new way.

Do you seek higher ground? Or do you go through with your original plans?

-An addictive mix of platforming, puzzles, and discovery
-Two different paths, and four different endings
-Unique LCD-inspired visuals
-An original chiptune soundtrack
-Authentic TIA sound effects
-Compete with yourself for best score, or for best time
-Support for Bluetooth arcade controller

Thanks! We've improved on it a lot since then too. Another screenshot from the new underground area here:

Movement is tile-based. Swipe anywhere to walk or climb a ladder, tap to jump.

We weren't at all happy with our attempts at a virtual d-pad, so we scraped that.

It also has iCade support.

We're working on a trailer now, hope to have that up within a couple days.
