Hockey re-imagined with the finest of Victorian technologies!

No expense is spared to bring you the newest electric entertainments of our modern age.

Featuring meticulously hand-designed brass and crystal precision simulations, SteamPunk Hockey remakes an old tradition into a modern experience for young and old alike.

Control the virtual electric and magnetic properties of your paddle to score upon the opponent's goal with your choice of game disc.

A one and two-player experience for a moment's diversion from your worldly troubles.

Thank you! iPad version charing quite by accident.

Thank you Cygnet, I appreciate your friendly support of my game.

I've started a revision from scratch for OpenGLES 2.0 devices, in between client work. It's still hanging on in the world charts.

SteamPunk Hockey HD is on a free promotion right now. I'd dropped the price to encourage a few more downloads, and the next day, it charted in 70 countries, and made the Top 10 in USA and Canada's Games/Family/Free/iPad charts. Wow!

Last year I developed Freq.Trigger for FREQ Entertainment and learned techniques for much better AI. At this moment I'm updating the iPad version with Retina graphics and will update the AI in the game.

Steampunk is so much fun to play with.

Thanks again Cygnet, for your awesome message and compliment, and support over this long term - very encouraging of you!
