Run and Rock-it Kristie - a love letter to all Rayman fans RELEASED



Hi everyone!

Please welcome our first iOS title - Run and Rock-it Kristie - a game that combines the excitement of unlocking new guitar solos with a "find a perfect route" platforming gameplay.

App Store (free download): https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/run-and-rock-it-kristie/id1021084072?mt=8


The goal of the game is simple — help Kristie get to the show to throw down a spectacular guitar performance, unique to each stage of the game. Of course the road to stardom is treacherous and filled with obstacles, hazards and enemies, so it won't be a walk in the park.



Features:

  • Original world, artwork, characters and fluid character animation.
  • Each level comes with a unique guitar solo performed by Kristie, the main character. Those solos are awesome and completely original.
  • It's easy to pick up and play, but difficult to master. (What a cliché, I know... =)
  • No "lives", "energy", "gems" or other artificial timer/currency gameplay barriers.
  • All of the upcoming level packs are free for players who purchased the full version of the game with a single in-app purchase.
  • Available in 14 languages.



We spent the last two years working on the game to come up with something we ourselves enjoyed playing.



Initial release comes with three tours, 30 stages total, set During Summer, Fall and Winter.
More tours to come with updates.



When you beat the level perfectly and hear that cheer of a crowd, the confetti cannon and the fireworks... It's incredible, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do myself =)



Any suggestions or criticism would be welcome!

Thank you! We're working on an extended trailer which will show a lot more of the gameplay.
I'll post it here as soon as it's ready (probably on Dec, 5th too).

Looks pretty awesome, I love it when games have strong female lead characters

Me too! There's actually a funny story which helped us decide whether the character would be male or female. When we began prototyping (with a very drafty male character), my good friend tried the prototype and these were his exact words: "Oh, man... Another Contra rip-off!".



Needless to say it not only affected the gameplay, but the sex of the character as well

I'm getting a strong Rayman vibe here. Really looking forward to it.

If you enjoyed Rayman Jungle/Fiesta Run, you're going to be right at home with Run and Rock-it Kristie. It's a promise!
