Downhill Riders (by Happymagenta)

Hey everyone!

Our team Happymagenta has been working on a new game for a while. And it's high time we shared what we have with you guys! The game is called Downhill Riders and we're talking days until its release. The game is already approved by Apple so stay in touch - we will let you know when it's out!

Update: the game is already available in New Zealand!
I also created a thread in the iPhone and iPad games section. So please follow it too for further details and updates





The name of the game speaks for itself. So it's probably not hard to guess what will be going on. However, some surprises are still waiting for you.



As you can see from the pics and the video there are 2 dumbheads practicing crude and self-injuring stunts in order to take a perfect shot and become youtube stars.

And your task is to help them to catch their moment of glory by avoiding and jumping over obstacles, collecting coins, unlocking new cool equipment and getting the highest score.





And for all lovers of speed and hardcore rthythmic sounds - here's our soundtrack for the game:

All your opinions, thoughts and ideas are heartly welcome!

Oh yes, this is hard.

This time involves a mechanic when you need to use two hands and you both brain hemispheres. The hemispheres are really hard to sync. So, it make it even somewhat harder.

But when it'll be out I'll upload a video showing how it can be made a little bit easier with a simple trick.
