Checkpoint Champion

Hi all!

I've recently started a new indie games company called Protostar with a good friend. We're both seasoned iPhone developers (from a bigger company) and we've nearly finished our first game, Checkpoint Champion.

Here's the logo:


And some screenshots:







It's a little, arcadey top-down driving game. We're planning to release the game in November. Here's a link to a short video introducing ourselves and the game.

Feel free to ask us anything about the game. We'd love to hear what you think!

This has my attention. Like the look of things so far. Will this be premium or free to play? I'll be looking out for this undoubtedly

Thanks! Yeah, it will be free with ads, and you can pay to disable them (probably either 99c or the next price-point up). There won't be any energy or waiting mechanics and there won't be any pay-to-win mechanics either.

Woohoo! Checkpoint Champion just got approved by apple, but probably won't be out in the US for a little while. However, we have some promo codes to give away to anyone who wants to check out the game early. We'd love to see some scores on the leaderboards and hear what you think of the game.

PM me if you'd like one. We don't have many so... first in, first served.

Also, here's a short gameplay preview to see what the game is all about.

...and a video of us kinda losing our minds after finishing the game.

Really cool video guys about the development of the game, kind of a unique "behind the scenes" look at things. The game looks great, I can't wait to take it for a test drive
