Penetrator - brand new game by Readdle is coming soon

You have a space ship, a cave filled with walls and several types of bonuses spread across the level. Your mission is to fly as far as you can without crashing the ship. It's easy to say and hard to accomplish!

HOW TO PLAY?
- Tap the screen to move the space ship up
- Don't tap the screen and ship will begin to fall
- Avoid the walls at all cost

UNLIMITED RE-PLAYABILITY
All levels a random generated. You will never fly the same level twice and maybe one day you will get a level without the walls at all!

7 BONUSES THAT
- Slow the ship or make it fly faster
- Remove all the bonuses effects
- Reduce the ship size for 10 seconds
- Grant you invulnerability for 4 seconds
- Explode the ship in 5 seconds
- Make ship jump

As you can see some bonuses are much more dangerous than walls

3 LEVELS WITH DIFFERENT PHYSICS
We have set different default ship speed and gravity settings for our levels. You will be surprised by how hard flying in low gravity field could be.

REAL PRIZE TO WIN
Became real Penetrator guru and pass our record marks? Just send us a screenshot where your ship is flying away from the top scores that we placed below and get Air Sail redeem code for free (only if you have US iTunes Store account).

Looks like a pimped "iCopter" for us, doesn't it?

We've written an article on Penetrator a few minutes ago - check it out: http://bit.ly/EQc7R (german!)

Yeah, that's what came to my mind at first too. You guys should maybe rethink that name.

Not to mention that the ship looks somewhat phallic with that title

While I enjoy the game's title for obvious reasons, the gameplay doesn't seem to improve enough on the classic iCopter formula for me to warrant a purchase. Hell, I don't even play iCopter, even though it's free. Pass.

Plays: Zaxxon Escape, Plague Inc., Phoenix HD, Block Fortress, Knights of Pen and Paper.

Thats exactly what I thought, like you were a sperm and had to shoot the other sperms and get to the egg before anyone else.

Thank you guyz for feedback.
Pricing will be announced soon.
I must say that it would be much better than icopter.
Penetrator was designed to have insane replayability.

Cheers.
More feedbacks are welcome.

Readdle team.
