ELF by Matmi - Official video - Out now

ELF is out by Matmi


Youtube link | Pop Up


It’s Christmas morning and there’s magic in the air, enough to send an elf soaring into the stratosphere. While Santa’s away, Irving the Elf like nothing more than leaping skyward, stepping on stars and bouncing on baubles trying to get as high as he can! Build your boost and collect candy canes for a point bonus while you help Irving hit the heavens, but watch out for the twisted tinsel, its pointy prickles will put a real crimp on your day.

With all the looks and charm you’d expect from a Matmi game, Elf is simple enough that anyone can pick it up and play it, but addictive enough that you’ll be hooked all year round. Aim skyward as you challenge your friends via Facebook Connect and see who can send Irving the highest!

About Elf

Looks interesting And this somehow confirms my belief that there are 4 most inspiring AppStore games:
1. Super Monkey Ball (first big-name app, console-quality game and it was very inspiring to what the iPhone can do)
2. Fieldrunners (opening the TD and CD gate)
3. iDracula (dual stick shooter)
4. Of course, Papi Jump (with many similar or slightly different remakes like Doodle Jump, Tap-fu Cloud Hop, etc).

edit: I realised soon after I wrote it that in fact Flight Control should've been on the list, thus it's on my sig.

Yeah, I realized that right after the post, thus SMB is replaced by Flight Control in my sig, simply because it has inspired way more games (Lion Pride, 33rd Division, Harbour Havoc, etc).

SMB is still the AppStore classic though.

Four most influential games: Papi Jump, iDracula, Fieldrunners, Flight Control.

I'm interested in buying but can you please let me know how you control the main character? Tilt or touch?
