Cool to see that our game has finally been announced!

There's also a little preview here, with a couple of screenshots (which give a better idea of how it looks, as the video shows the game cropped/zoomed bit):

The controls are about as simple and responsive as can be achieved using a touchscreen - it uses just 3 buttons (left, right, jump/grapple), and the controls have had a lot of tuning+playtesting

The game runs at a lovely smooth 60 frames/second on iPhone 3GS and above, which also helps to keep the controls responsive.

Hope everyone enjoys it when it launches!

Looks great, and thank you for using a proper d-pad and jump button. When is this due out?

It's been announced for January, but we don't have an exact date yet.

It's universal app, and it will run on older devices, but a 3GS or above is highly recommended for nice smooth gameplay.

Didn't quite make January in the end, but it should be arriving on the App Store this time next week!
