Give It Up! 2 - Hardcore rhythm based runner (by Invictus Games)

Give it Up! (1) is one of our successful apps, it has been featured for weeks on iTunes, has been selected for Starbucks 'Pick Of The Week', and is incredibly popular in China.
Reviews often refer to how insanely hard it is: "I love it and play a lot although I'm still at stage 2.".

We've experimented a lot to find a way to give more content and fun to the non-hardcore majority, while not taking anything away from the hardcore players.
The best solution we come up with cannot be rolled out as an update as it changes all the tracks in a fundamental way, hence GIU2.

Different difficulty levels look like levels and are color coded. Routes are selectable on-the-go, higher levels provide fall-back holes to lower levels, naturally saving the naive from the torture of too hard levels.
There are 3 levels, the middle level is similar difficulty to tracks in Give it Up! (1).

Each stage can be finished with a Star rating, depending on how much stars collected on stage. Collectible starts are more frequent on higher levels.

Hope you'll enjoy Give it Up! 2!

We plan to find beta tester here on TA.
At the current development stage it is possible that your ideas could make it into GIU2, so feel free to post them.

Very Exciting!

That quote actually sounds like something I said at some point. Anyways big fan! I've picked up your last 4-5 game releases and have not been disappointed, not once. The new part 2 looks more like something that will tantalize the eyes and keep more players coming back to Give It Up 2.

Good luck with with the release. I'm sure I'll pick it up too.

Hi, we're currently working on the audio side of things and the music is not finalized yet so I can't provide any gameplay video yet. As soon as there is something to show, I will announce it in this thread for sure.

But I can show some hot never-seen-before screenshots from the actual game:





If you have any questions, feel free to ask them

Release date

Hi, we understand that we already missed the release date we promised by quite a long time for now. As we've been approaching the release date, we just felt the game wasn't finished. We had to rethink a few ideas, change some things. Our goal is to give you a great game from the start, and we thought a delay was necessary. There are some issues still unresolved, but we don't want to say a false date, let's just say, the game will be out in 2015 ... definitely this time .

Teleportation!

I think it would be cool if you had portals or something. Hopefully you will use this !
