Hello Touch Arcade!

We at Pixelfrost, a three-man* game studio, are pleased to share with you our upcoming game, Icarush, an endless jumper unlike any you have ever seen!

*1-man-and-2-women actually


If you're wondering what makes Icarush so different compared to other endless jumpers, it’s because Icarush actually has no jumping at all. Instead, on Icarush players will be able to grab onto magical feathers and launch themselves up to the air. And all of that is done on a really simple and intuitive touch-based control.

While that may sounds great, we assure you, we’re not stopping at that. These magical feathers you use to fly have various different powers, like launching you higher or even randomly disappearing. We’ve also added power ups for you to collect and various upgrades you can purchase for your character. And to spice things up, we’ve included special flying moves that you can unlock.

And yes, Icarush features Icarus, the boy who flew too close to the sun and broke his wings. Apparently he didn’t really plummet down to earth though

Okay, enough with all this text, we know you want to see how the game looks, so here are some screenshots!







Read more about the mission system on this post
And a little bonus:



We also planned to have the character highly customizable. Because hey, let's be honest here, we want to see him flying with that badass dragon wings as much as you do.


Also, a little something our artist came up with when we asked her to sketch various possible costumes for our hero to wear.


Please stay with us as we release more details about Icarush. In the meanwhile, feel free to ask us anything about the game!
And you can always follow us on Twitter or Facebook

That's a nice guess, but not really, it's more in the lines of jumping games like Doodle Jump or Mega Jump. You won't be jumping and moving around with accelerometer on this game though. Instead, you'll simply tap some floating magical orbs and release them to launch yourself higher.

"icaRUSH"

That's ...actually pretty clever. As for the game itself, I won't judge til I get my hands on it.

Thanks! Glad people liked the title, we almost went for "Icarus Adventure" instead XD
And yeah, we hoped we can give you guys something playable soon enough, or at least a gameplay video. So stay tuned!

Happy Halloween guys!
Our artist surprised us today with this, so it would be remiss of us if we didn't share it with you all.


On a side note: this artwork includes a pokemon (or more), can you guess what it is?

One question, but let me guess first... So you done the coding and two other women done the with the graphic and the music. Am I right?

Anyway, what kind of control do you use for this game? Tilt only?

Oooh, you're almost correct, nice guess! Both women are handling the graphics though. And for the music, we're currently outsourcing it =)

As for the control, surprise, surprise, there is no tilt control on this game!
There are magical orbs that you can grab on to scattered all over the sky. When you touch an orb, you will grab and hang on to it, and when you release it, you will pull yourself up and get launched into the air! By repeating this you can get higher and higher into the air
