Default Pyro Pursuit: A twitch, endless platformer - Testers needed

Iím happy to (finally) announce the official title for the new game:


Youtube link | Pop Up

First Trailer

You play the role as a fearless fireman (or woman), who is desperately trying to reach the top of a burning building. With the help of your firetruck armed with a ladder-firing cannon (obviously), you need to avoid flaming obstacles, jump from ledge to ledge, and save a few personal items along the way.

Pyro Pursuit is a twitch-based, puzzle-platformer that started out as a 48-hour game jam creation and turned into a full-fledged release. More details to come about release dates and platforms - but I am currently looking for beta testers for iOS and Android! If interested, feel free to drop me a PM or hit me up on Twitter.

Otherwise, here are a bunch of screenshots.







Thanks for checking it out.

Another screenshot - this is the "death" animation (along with a dude's buttcrack).

Not sure if that's a compliment or not, but thanks.

The game was actually inspired by the cheesy "stacker" arcade/carnival game where you need to time the button press to line up blocks and get to the top.

The game jam prototype was made in about a day, I found it surprisingly fun, so I ended up spending the next six months polishing it.

Just added a new mission system to the game - completing objectives level you up to unlock new rewards. I posted a Vine of the menus in action here.

Here's some new screenshots:

Updated the original post with new info and art.

Looking for more testers for the next beta release. Email, PM, or tweet me. Getting good feedback from the current group - thanks again.

If it's any motivation, there's an unlockable character with a slick stache:
