App 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 Shaughnessys 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
- Face-to-face 2-player tabletop play using just the touchscreen
- Local multiplayer split-screen up to 4 players(*)
- Novice, Normal and Expert difficulty modes make it easy for beginners to learn how to fly
- 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
- 57 levels including all 9 original Gravitation levels
- 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 thats great fun chasing high-scores in single-player and even more fun in local multiplayer!

Super Grav update v1.1 has just been approved and is now live on the App Store!

This update adds "Novice", "Normal" and "Expert" difficulty modes.

Novice mode now makes it much, much easier to control the ship. If anyone has tried the game and simply found it too difficult please give v1.1 a go and let me know how you get on in Novice mode.

It should be more enjoyable for a novice now to learn how to fly, and as your skills improve you can ramp up the difficulty and then really start to challenge those top Game Center Leaderboard race times! :-)

Great game.

Of course, Thrust has been one of my favorites for... um, a very long time!
