Drive and Jump: 8-bit retro driving action (maker of Bubble Pets, Pixel Hell)

Hi Touch Arcade!

I made some simple and weird games before (Bubble Pets and Pixel Hell).

My next game Drive and Jump was approved by Apple and will be released on the App Store Wednesday May 9th It was inspired by the arcade/NES classic Bump 'n Jump.


Out run the cops by driving and jumping! Collect cash, but do not crash.

Inspired by the bumping and jumping NES and arcade classics, Drive and Jump features 4 different stages of retro racing recklessness!


- Simple controls, one hand play
- I think the background music is pretty cool
- There's a whale in the middle of the road... that's pretty weird!
- Tweet a screenshot of where you crashed
- Helicopters

How to play

- Tilt to drive using your iPhone/iPod/iPad accelerometer
- Tap to jump!
- Stay on the road! Don't hit anything...
- UNLESS you hit a POW strip... then you are wild
- Collect money bags

I'll post a video later, but here are some pics for now!

A Bump 'n Jump style game would be great on iOS, and your pixel artwork looks fantastic. Really looking forward to this!
