You know the old saying, you cant take it with you? Well, weve got news for you, my friends, they were WRONG! Deadbeats have been taking their riches with them to the afterlife for centuries and its the job of the INFERNAL Revenue Service and its army of skulls to collect! Thats where you come in.

In Skullduggery! youll play a Semi-Organic Autonomous Skull employed as a collection agent for the IRS. Using the elasticity of your own brain, flick yourself around the fortresses of the afterlifes biggest deadbeats.

- BRAIN POWER: Pull back ANYWHERE on the screen to stretch out your brain! Let go to snap your skull forward like a brainy rubber band.

- BULLET TIME: Touch and hold in mid-air to slow down time, change directions, avoid deadly obstacles, and pull off crazy trick shots!

- GRAVITATIONAL TRUANCY: Repeatedly jump by aiming again while your skull is mid-flight.

- STEALTHINESS: Being small has advantages! Hide in trash cans, chests, and jars. Slip behind surly guards and take them out while their backs are turned!

- HEADSHOTS: Take out enemies with a single well-placed fling to the cranium.

- HEAD TO HEAD: Play head to head against your friends to become the afterlifes most successful agent.

- BUREAUCRACY: Fill out paperwork and reflect on the inherent emptiness of existence!

Skullduggery! features the endearingly grotesque art stylings of game artist extraordinaire Bill Mudron, inspired by the Max Fleischer animations of the 1930s, and a quirky, doom-jazzy, bureau-noir soundtrack from industrial musician Michael Arthur Holloway.

MORE FEATURES:

- NO In App Purchase. Buy the game, play the game. Thats it!
- A finely-tuned and deeply-satisfying one-touch control scheme specifically tailored to mobile.
- Three distinctly unique and atmospheric worlds with more on the way.
- Dreadful puns.
- Single Player mode with 24 surreal and pleasantly spooky levels.
- Multiplayer Head to Head mode with a variety of brain-pounding arenas.
- Hidden rooms and secret chests containing treasure and other delights.
- Pleasing power-ups and epic boss battles!
- Dozens of collectables and secondary objectives for maximum replayability.
- Over 20 unique skulls to unlock, including guest celebrity skulls from some of our favorite games.
- Universal App - play on your new iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and iPad mini.
- Full iCloud support - sync your progress across all your devices.
- Compete with Game Center Achievements and Leaderboards.
- Paperwork, paperwork, paperwork!

Haha! I know the feeling! I bought her Smash Bros 3DS to make up for last week's massive spending, looks like I'll need to find something else to get her now

This looks great, I've been waiting for it for a while now. Absolutely love the visual style.

Hope it's worth the $5 because I'll be diving in head first

This is an instabuy for me, no doubt !

(Sorry for beeing so negative now, but i'm around too long to foresee this possible scenario)

Your price will scare off some bones, no doubt. I really, really wish this works out for you guys, otherwise you gonna cut the price a week later, and this will pi$$ off some more bones (not me, because i see the huge work behind it)
You should have made an early adapter price, but again, i hope it pays off.

Looking forward and good luck !

We may get flamed for this, but I have to agree. Been around this scene since the iOS gaming beginnings and, while I will be buying this tonight, I can see sales not being what the devs deserve and project. It's a shame but that's the AppStore. I don't mind paying the asking price to play now, but... when I do get burned by a price drop really soon after buying, I always remember the next time(s) I'm presented with a new game from that dev.

That's all speculation though. I'm just excited to be getting this tonight, though when it comes out I'll have about 11 hours of work left

LOL Are we married to the same woman?!?!?

If we could harvest human stupidity to run our electricity, and our cars, the world would see a new era of clean, renewable energy. That's an amazing resource we're wasting.

Just watched the appspy stream on twitch and they had huge fun with your game. They gave it a boney thumbs up and even mentioned that this could be their pick of the week.

(Though they only play five new games in an hour and such as Reckless Racing 3 wasn't there, i take it with a grain of salt, of course)
