Kinda looks like it's reminiscent of Gyro 13... dunno if anyone remembers that Cave flyer from a few years back... =o/

Haha. I forgot about that game. I've only played the first level of this, but so far it was good. I'll dig into it a little later and see what it's really all about

as a fan of the genre, I am enjoying it. But I have to say it leaves a lot to be desired, it feels and looks like an early beta.

The controls (joystick in my case) feel off, probably due to the fixed origin, making it hard to subtlely adjust speed, which is kinda key in this kind of game.

The graphics are a mixed bag of great looking water reflection effects, nice rock textures and weird lighting errors and bland low-res landscape textures. Also the occasional culling of objects that should be in view, make the game feel unfinished.

But most importantly, it is very hard to guage where the collision boundries are. Granted, this is often an issue with 3D rendered 2D games, but it feels that some tweeking could much improve the sense of where to fly and what not to bumb into.

Aside from all the issues the game does feature a nice variety of gameplay, so if you are a fan of the 'cave flyer' genre there are worse ways to spend a dollar.

Hi Addink, I am the developer of the game and I really appreciate the info! I have already submitted a small update in regards to a few bugs and improved the controls. I'll work on the issues you brought up for the new level update in the next few weeks. Thanks again Seymour

Will this play at full-screen resolution on an iPhone 6+ ? Screenies indicate otherwise. Don't want to play with black bars...

Yes it will be full screen and it was just so the screenshots weren't stretched in some devices. Also I released an Update to improve gameplay and controls from what users like Addink have said. Let me know of anything good or bad and I ll improve the game further Hope you enjoy it!!
