Space Hike. A game you can write too

I've just got word that the other game we submitted to the App Store this week has been approved.

Space Hike

Space Hike is a very simple Open GL ES game, in the style of the old 8 bit 'Star Trek' games. It's a free game and incredibly basic, but the kick is that I teach you how to write it from scratch in the upcoming book "iPhone Games Projects" by PJ Cabrera, published by Apress.

iPhone Games Projects

So you can have a quick blast, rid the galaxy of the evil Mingons and then use it as a basis for your own iPhone mega game. (I used the same process as a starting point for our Warpack: Grunts game).
