The game is challenging, yet easy in the sense that anyone could play it. You can buy different outfits and different wings, along with power ups and upgrades to increase your score and height.

The graphics style is appealing, as it's cartoony, but in a 2.5D sort of way. The learning curve is simple, as the gameplay is one touch, so anyone can learn how to play it through one or two playthroughs. Figuring out how to effectively use the power ups is the hard part.

I really enjoyed the game (I think my favorite part was the mission system), and I can't wait to see what's in store for us later on in development. Good luck in future updates and on your release date later on. I have high hopes for this game's future!
Oh wow, thanks for all the kind words. Glad to see you enjoying the game

We'll reveal more about the missions system soon (not now, since I know you people are enjoying all those shiny new games at the moment ). In the meanwhile, we're always looking for more BETA TESTERS, so just PM me directly or reply to the thread if you're interested.

Happy Pi day, everybody!

And don't worry, I'm not just here to celebrate Pi day. As we've hinted in the previous post, we're going to reveal more about the mission system. Let's start off with the screenshots!

The screenshot on the left shows the mission menu which display all currently active missions. And what are missions? Basically, missions are various side objectives that can be completed by performing a certain task in the game. These tasks could be as simple as just opening the pause menu, or a bit ore challenging like reaching a certain height.

Each time you complete a mission, you will gain some rank progression so you can advance to the next rank. And every time your rank increase, you will be get a reward, whether it's coins to spend on the store or a new ability to use in the game like you can see in the screenshot on the right.

And that's the gist of it Please follow along as we reveal more about Icarush.
Oh, and you can always follow us on Twitter or Facebook

Hello everyone, it's been a while, isn't it?
Rejoice then, because I brought some exciting news as can be seen in the picture below

Yes, you read that right, after a little back and forth with the Apple QA team, we finally have a release date! Icarush will be on sale at the Appstore starting from April 17, 2014 with a low, low price of $0.99. The game will have a universal build, so you'll be able to play it either on your iPhone or iPad (or even iPod)!

And last but not least, thank you for everyone who have participated in the beta test, your feedback and input has been really really valuable to us
