Super Viking World - fast paced platformer

(scroll down for screens)

I am very proud to present to you after almost 2 years in the making, our love child Super Viking World!

Super Viking World is an iOS exclusive title that is a fast paced platform jump and run game with a lot of unique features such as:

* extremely responsive and precise controls
* over 1600 unique frames of animation
* over 20 unique enemies
* 27 painstakingly crafted and tested levels over 9 beautiful environments. + Bonus levels.
* Full iCade support

//Obvious features

*iCloud saves
*Game Center achievements and score ledgers

This has been a collaboration between people from different parts of our planet.
I am not sure, but this could be the first American-Japanese-Swedish-German-Finnish game ever =)

The one thing I am the most proud over are the levels, they have been co-design with a very famous Japanese gentleman whoms levels I can almost guarantee that you have enjoyed in the past.
Can not namedrop him yet, due to legal reasons.

I have had 5 professional game reviewers play the beta to give feedback, and they say they are amazed at the precise control and level design So I really hope, everyone will enjoy it as much as we do once it is released!

The game is designed for the iPhone 5, but we have created original art and features to manage the low memory and GPU limitations of the iPhone 4. So the game supports 4, 4s and 5, but the full experience will be on the iPhone 5 +.

The music has been composed by Prof. Sakamoto out of Tokyo, Japan and has that melodic "old school" feel to it.


Here are some screens from the first worlds and levels, I will post more as we get closer to release.
I expect to release the binary to Apple within the coming weeks.

Looks great but what are the controls like? Can't see any buttons on those screens

They are there, but they "fade out" if you had a 100% hit rate on the controls after a certain time

edit: 100% support for iCade

Thanks, I will add a Gameplay video as we get closer to launch, right now all efforts go into finalizing the project

The gameplay video will be the marketing, as the game animations look incredible and add depth to the experience.

Does anybody use iCade to play games these days? Or is it a waste of time to add this feature?

How important are:

iCloud saves
Game Center?

As requested here is some beta gameplay from about 1.5 weeks ago.

Shows some of the worlds even though my video editing skills suck
