1001 Attempts - Coming February 28 - [Everplay]




Whats better than getting sawed in half, having a spike tearing you a new hole, bursting to bits from missiles, or getting fried by freaking laser beams?! Why, combining all of that into a single game, of course!

1001 Attempts
is the latest game from Everplay Interactive, the studio that brought you Spell Sword. 1001 Attempts symbolized the "one more try" gameplay at its core with a design that harkens back to the days of yore. Your mission is simple: Collect the jewels, dodge death, and spill your guts for glory while achieving the highest score!

1001 Attempts launches February 28 as a universal app on the Apple AppStore.

That made my day.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Only 2...ish more days until the launch of 1001 Attempts!

To get the hype train rolling and to play a little game in the meantime, we will be rewarding players with some early promo codes! YAYYYY!

So here is how you play:

1. Give us the best "death" quote you can come up with. For example, we have "You can't spell slaughter without laughter" and "At least you didn't die of dysentry" (Reference to Oregon Trail.)

2. We will choose the ones we like AND will add them to the update we are currently working on.

3. There are NO limits on how many you can post. Post 1 or 1,000.

4. No copyrighted phrases can be used, but if you deviate or alter them, then they can be used.

Have fun.
