Boulder Jack (by PlaySide)

Hey all! I just wanted to let everyone know about our new title coming out this week.

Boulder Jack! Launching this week!

• This time you run towards the screen!
• Different Environments and Weather Effects
• Beautiful Visual Effects and Art Style
• Challenge Your Game Centre and Facebook Friends
• Ride Wilbur your Feathered Friend!
• This app is Universal with Retina HD Graphics.

Pirate Jack is running for his life in this brand new adventure. Jack is brought to life by his hilarious animations and visual effects. This is not your typical one hit death runner, in Boulder Jack, Jack has numerous chances to smash into objects destroying them and flinging their debris towards the screen with amazing explosions, the more Jack stumbles the closer the Boulder gets. Player upgrades, armor, mounts and cash bounties can be upgraded through the in game store.

PlaySide is a small dev team based in Melbourne, Australia. This is our second title! Our first was Catch The Ark.

Now that we have it back from Chillingo we certainly will! We are actually in the process of submitting a Christmas update! We will then be doing a much bigger update early next year. We plan to keep supporting it. Thanks for still playing

Holy shit. Are u kidding. Running towards the screen. Omg. Those were my favorite levels in crash bandicoot. And they had a couple AwSome ones in castle if illusion and even ratatouille. But a game devoted to it and on my phone is off the hook. Im a fan of catch the arc and can't wait for this one. Bravo devs. Please be good or this will be my biggest dissappointment of the year. Please

First impressions:
- I like it
- it is strangely generous with the damage taken. My first run I hit probably 50 walls and Kept running for what felt like five minutes, and that's before any upgrades. I think runs may be too long.
- this may be an accidental release, or there is a strange bug. I went to buy the coin doubler and it appears to be available for free. No IAP. No coins. Just click buy doubler and it's there.
