Default Square Dash (by Skiproach Studio - Creators of WingDot)

Hi TA forum,
After making WingDot we thought it could be fun to take one of our early prototypes of WingDot and make it into a game.

We liked the controls touch to go up, release to dive so why not build upon that.

The game is about surviving as long as possible and dodge incoming objects, and collect gems. Very basic “running” type of game. You control a simple square flying up and down. But we think it needed some more, some more to make it a game not seen before. We got the idea of having a “life line” that the player needs to be close to. Touching the life line with your square gives you more time to get further. Your life line will at maximum only give you 10 seconds to live in, that means you need to keep an eye on the time and be close at your life line to fuel up on “extra time”. Zero time is a game over - if you have not crashed before that.

Even though the game is very basic in it's form, it still captures the AArrgghh!! I just needed 100 point more to get the next achievement. Fast restart keeps you playing to get all 25 achievements unlocked.

One last thing. This game is also a test (development test) for our self to try and work with new techniques, for example is this the first game we are making that support Universal app for iPhone and iPad. And therefore we have decided to make the game free.

It’s set to release on wednesday 18 - Free
