Swing Away - simple & addicting arcade adventure - trailer released!

UPDATE: First 10 people to reply will get to try the game before it's officially released!
UPDATE DEC 1: 5 early copies left, PM me or post here to get it!

UPDATE DEC 7: Swing Away is now on the App Store! [iTunes Link]


My name is Kasra Kyanzadeh and I've just released the trailer for my first iOS game, Swing Away. In Swing Away, you play a monkey that has escaped from the zoo. By swinging from vine to vine, you're trying to make it home to the jungle. Swing Away has a simple one-touch control and 60 tricky missions to beat. Check out the trailer below!

I'm currently waiting to get approved by Apple, and plan to release on the app store in early December. In the meantime, you can follow its webpage, like it on Facebook, and follow it on Twitter.

I'd love to hear any feedback you guys might have! Thanks

Looks cute and interesting, I can see kids liking it :-)

Is there parts of the levels where you can't walk on the ground and have to swing across?

Check out our iPhone games Zombitsu and Superflick or find us at Ruma Studios.

Thanks! Check your PMs for instructions if you'd like to check out the game early.

Edit: forgot to answer Luke's question. No, you can walk at any point. I decided pretty early on to not have any obstacles or any way for the game to end other than time running out. I think that helps players focus on the actual missions and swinging mechanic.

If anybody else is interested in trying this out before it's released on December 8th, just PM me your device's UDID. (8 slots left!)

Also, any ideas for cool future levels? Right now there's Zoo, City, Suburbs, Jungle.

Here's how to find your UDID
