'Eco Punk' (from Rasta Monkey Dev) IS OUT!!!

Hi there!

First of all, I wanna thank our incredible beta testers, It was a real pleasure working with you guys, and I'm looking forward to having you a board on our future games!




Eco Punk is AVAILABLE on the appstore! Get it while it's still in the sweet intro price of $0.99!

Take the role of the insanely angry skating eco punk bunny. Defend your neighborhood against pollution by cleaning up the streets and blowing up polluting vehicles in a raging killing spree...

Eco Punk is a fast paced dodging and shooting game with a simple goal - you need to collect as many garbage items as fast as possible while avoiding collision with street traffic. Along the way you also collect different power-ups like shields and guns and blow up the polluting vehicles and get more points. The gameplay with its single level and ramping difficulty, really strikes that addictive balance of casual pick-up gameplay and makes you keep trying it "just one more time".

Eco Punk innovative touch controls are simple and intuitive. The only control you have in the game is over your character's movement. To move around just click anywhere on the screen and drag your finger and the character will accurately follow that path . Swiping your finger causes the bunny to slide in the direction of the swipe. All in all, the controls were designed exclusively for the iPhone and make it feel like a natural iPhone game.

Here is a How to video that shows how the controls work:

There are 3 available game modes - Classic, Blitz and TimeBend. The Blitz is a "score as high as you can in under 1 minute" mode, A-la Bejeweled Blitz. TimeBend mode on the other hand is a brilliant twist on the game mechanics. In this mode the speed of all the surrounding vehicles increases or decreases based on your own character speed. The result is a mind bending and very unique gameplay that we found to be highly addictive.

The charming 3d art, which uses pre baked texture maps, is stylishly modern with a nostalgic isometric feel. You also have a choice of listening to the original hard rock soundtrack or to your own music, and control the wacky voice talent that keeps shouting hilarious rude insults at the passing drivers (you son of a nipple!).

Last but not least, 5% of all revenues will be donated to real eco causes, so you can actually SAVE the environment while blowing up cars.

The official trailer offers a glimpse of the action:

We are on the final development stage of our totally awesome new game "Eco-Punk", an avoidance-shooting-skateboarding-punk game.
We need about 10 beta testers to help us tune the game and catch some nasty bugs.
So if you are interested send me an email to : beta@nitako.com

Country
Device type and generation
Games you like playing on the iPod/iPhone
and any beta-testing experience you might have

Thanks!
Yuval!!! How are you and Noam? Unfortunately I'm still without internet at home, so I can't do any beta testing. I hope you guys do well though. Was getting a little worried there
