Super Grav - retro gravity cave flyer for 1-4 players, coming soon!

Super Grav has been submitted to Apple and is Waiting For Review, so is due out very soon (hopefully!)

Here's a quick taster preview video (recorded on an iPhone 5s):

Notice how all the in-game controls can be moved and scaled to suit, and in 2-player the views can be rotated to play face-to-face (this is great on iPad!). 4-player split-screen can even be achieved if you have enough iOS Game Controllers (does anyone? )

It will also be released on Android at or around the same time as the iOS version. There will be a Mac version soon after too, which will share the Game Center Leaderboards and Achievements with the iOS version.

Here's the full iTunes description:

Super Grav is a retro gravity cave flyer for 1-4 players, featuring single player or co-op multiplayer missions, racing and dogfighting.

With fast-paced, super smooth 60fps gameplay, pixel-perfect collision detection and that ‘just right’ feel to the physics, Super Grav offers a true test of skill, precision and reflexes. Dodge enemies and bullets, navigate caverns to complete Missions either solo or co-op, battle deathmatch in Dogfight mode or see who can complete 3 subterranean laps the fastest in Race mode.

Back by popular demand, with graphics inspired by the 8-bit and 16-bit era of gaming, Super Grav is an extended remake of DemonStudios founder James Shaughnessy’s very own first game and 1998 Net Yaroze coverdisc hit, Gravitation.

- Pixel-perfect collision detection and super smooth 60fps gameplay.
- Single-player Mission and time trial Race modes.
- Local multiplayer split-screen up to 4 players*, in either co-op or versus Mission mode, and Race, Dogfight or Pod Hunter versus modes.
- Face-to-face 2-player tabletop play using just the touchscreen*
- Game Center online Leaderboards and Achievements - compete with friends for the best Mission scores and fastest Race times.
- Textbook 1, 2 or 3-Star rating on each mission. Aim to 3-Star all missions individually and ultimately all in a single run.
- 27 Mission maps, 9 Race maps, 3 dedicated Dogfight maps, plus a bonus of all 9 original Gravitation maps + more.
- PowerUp Pods offer weapon upgrades such as triple shot and rapid fire, or strike an opponent with a Negative PowerUp such as reverse steering or gravity!
- Watch full replays of the action at any time, with automatic saving of record-breaking Mission and Race replays.
- Easily move and scale all in-game touchscreen controls to suit every player.
- Lots of configuration options in versus modes, such as disabling weapons and ship-to-ship collisions which is great for really pure racing.
- Handicap system: add weight or weapons to help balance versus modes for differing player skill levels.
- An original chip tune music soundtrack by DaveDexterMusic.
- Supports iOS Game Controllers.

* Due to the physical limitations of multiple people using a touchscreen simultaneously, iOS Game Controllers are required for 3 and 4 player mode.

Game Modes:
Mission - Find and return all crates back to their bases. Playable in single-player or multiplayer in either co-op or versus mode.
Race - Race laps around the caverns through the gates against the clock. Playable in single-player time trial or multiplayer race mode.
Dogfight - Multiplayer deathmatch mode.
Pod Hunter - Multiplayer PowerUp Pod scavenge.

Super Grav - the retro arcade gravity game that’s great fun chasing high-scores in single-player and even more fun in local multiplayer!

Super Grav is now In Review, so it should (hopefully) be in the App Store tomorrow!

The Android version is also now pending publication (which should also only be a few hours). Scheduled release for the iOS version is August 21st, so West coast America might be able to get it after midnight, and fellow UK fans should hopefully be able to grab it in the morning if you don't fancy doing an all-nighter refreshing iTunes Will post a proper game thread tomorrow when it's out globally.
