Katana Jack! The first game painted on the iPad to be played on the iPad.

Ivanovich Games is proud to present "Katana Jack". The first game painted on the iPad to be played on the iPad.

All of the photorealistic artwork was finger-painted by Xoan Baltar using Brushes for iPad and the game shows how this artwork was created with 28 included videos.

Katana Jack is a great tribute to the classical platform game "Bomb Jack" and will let you relive the adventures of Jack going through the most beautiful scenery in Japan.

The game will be published on November 17th as a universal application (iPad + iPhone) at $0.99.

I'mso confused... Why hasn't this been getting any attention? Aside from being completely made on the iPad, it looks like a very fun arcade game to waste some time.

Guess who's bored!

Awesome. Mighty Bomb Jack is an arcade favorite of my wife and myself and this looks flipping bueatiful. I am super excited to see this coming out and I am really impressed with the work that was accomplished on the iPad.

Thanks to TA for covering this as it is the first I have heard of it. My only complaint would be the price is too low, I am serious.

Need this Now I have been waiting forever for a Bomb Jack game (I did play the other ios game but didn't like it).

This is probably the first time I can't wait for a game to come out.

Wait. What? This was drawn on the iPad? Completely? What?!?! I need to see those videos. That alone will be worth my $0.99

Yep he first mentioned this game in the iCade thread so we were all very excited. I loved Operation WOW and this Bomb Jack clone looks to be brilliant.

Not long to wait now ! Instant purchase for me 100%
