Blimp - The Flying Adventures by craneballs. First gameplay video. HD!

Hi toucharcade,

many of you like the game's visuals but were afraid about the gameplay of Blimp. So the game is almost ready and we made a HD video of gameplay.
Make sure you watch the HD!

The global scoreboard will be disabled in version 1.0 due to need for every app to be OS3.0 ready. We've experienced some problems with Facebook connect in OS3.0 version (you will upload your score to our Blimp facebook app so you can check up with your friends). The first update 1.1 will be delivered right away with global scoreboard ready.

We are planning to add online multiplayer with special multiplayer map pack. It'll be time challenge when you see your opponents as ghosts and who will finish the level first wins! And it'll also be a kind of deathmatch / capture the flag, where you have to steal opponents flag and / or kill him. More details about this coming soon.

The game will be in Appstore in early June and will cost 2.99$. We are also planning to add new levels in free updates.

Who wants to win any promo codes follow as on twitter, we will post some codes there when the game is in Appstore.

Also one more thing: who wants to be a game tester and spread the word around after trying out?

Well you already know my feelings on beta testing

There are also 4-5 other users here that I know are quite good at beta testing as well. They aren't just interested in getting an early build and not contributing (the reason gamevil won't do open betas now)

I'll PM them and hopefully they will sign on soon

Ok, Just played the tutorial and first level. Without gushing too much...


The presentation is outstanding. The music is stellar. The controls are extremely responsive.

The background on Noraa is absolutely gorgeous.

I'm going back to playing more now.

To the other Beta testers:
PLEASE, reboot before you start playing. While the game loaded just fine, and I could fly up, the tilt controls didn't work at all. After a reboot everything was just fine.
