Kevin's BREAK'EM - Coming Very Soon

Hi all,
We are happy to announce the release of our newest app Kevin’s BREAK’EM. Our take on tilt to win fast-paced gameplay for the iOS. We aimed at taking the old BreakOut/Arkanoid adding a twist to it and adapting it to the iPhone in a new original way that better suits the platform.

Featuring a unique tilt based control scheme, a fresh 3d animation look, animated characters, Game Center support, power-ups, upgrades and other simple but important features Kevin’s BREAM’EM will hopefully be one of the titles you will enjoy this fall.

--Update: Kevin's BREAK'EM hits the AppStore this Thursday (October 27th)--

Exclusive look at Kevin’s BREAK’EM is the trailer

Other news:
Our other title The Corporate Race is coming closer to a release but has been pushed back a little, we will be back with more news. Take a look at the mysterious teaser that people seemed to enjoy a lot.

Happy Pillars will be getting the first update bringing more depth to this well received simple yet fun app. You will see the first arcade mode, new elements and Game Center support.
.


Interesting trivia for the ones who don't already now it:
Steve Jobs was one of the guys behind the original BreakOut. Actually a funny story : "The original deadline was met after Wozniak did not sleep for four days straight. In the end 50 chips were removed from Jobs' original design. This equated to a US$5,000 bonus, which Jobs kept secret from Wozniak, instead only paying him $375" - more info http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Breakout_(video_game)

Hmm i wonder why nobody commented here yet... The game looks pretty nice, just like the trailer.. The graphics are really fitting for iOS

Also a question: What does those prize boxes do? Some special rewards?

To answer your question the prize boxes will give Kevin a bonus depending on their type.

I agree with littlezoe, that the graphics are great and very fitting for iOS. I will be downloading it on the 27. Anything with rocket flying monkeys has to be great.

This looks awesome! REALLY cool look to the art and the gameplay looks good too. Lots of character, I'll have to grab this one. Your other titles look great as well. I may have a new developer to add to my favorites list!

Universal app?

Thank you for the comment, very nice words . It's not universal yet but on the iPad2 we made it so it runs with the HD textures from the retina display. So its let's say almost universal .
