Hi everyone !

Today I'm happy to announce Majaka's 2nd game: SQUARE PLANET for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

Play a cute little Ball, infiltrate the Square Planet and rescue your friends from the evil Squares. Everything is square and edgy on the Square Planet !

We are also revealing a first environment set : the Square Forest. We will regularly update this thread as we gradually reveal more sets.

The game is currently in development and set for a September release.



The Square Forest

That little dark guy in the back in an Evil Square. He is evil. And fishing.



Rock Caverns

Look out for Square Bats ! Also introducing prisonners : will you manage to find & free all 6 in every level?


Cube City

Infiltrate the Cube City and its many hazards: gravity portals, ennemies, and of course "friggin laser beams"


Hard Sewers

Explore the shabby insides of the Square Planet!


To be revealed soon ...
  • Rock Caverns
  • Cube City
  • Hard Sewers
  • Edge Factory

Thank-you so much for the nice words everyone !
I edited the OP with new screenshots of the 2nd environment set of the game, the Rock Caverns.

Things you might catch on the screenshots :
  • Cool animations happen on screen, such as Square Bats flying
  • A side-challenge to every level is to find & free all 6 prisonners
  • We've improved the interface a bit

We'll be showing more stuff soon : new environment sets, power-ups, ennemies. I might also post funny pictures of the Evil Squares in their daily life, sunbathing, working, hanging out, etc.

Hi everyone,

Here's a close up on the main character. We just call him "The Ball" at the moment.



What do you think his name should be? or perhaps it's a she???

I like how the main character's round in a square planet, but i hope tere isnt tilt controls involved.
