New Game: io - coming soon?

Been following this game since i saw it listed in the IGF Mobile comp. Anyway, take a look at this page for details of this new side-scrolling action game from Atman Games called io.

Key features (from devs site):
  • io does NOT have a save feature.
  • Player moves: Io is a side-scroller game, however you can also move the player in and out of the screen, to hide in dark nooks, pick up secret items, etc.
  • Point and shoot mechanism: Touch on the screen and Norton will orient himself to look or shoot at the pointed spot.
  • Equipment: Thermal vision cameras, cloaking gear, weapon add-ons, etc
  • Weapons: Machine gun, Rail gun, Rocket launcher, Displacer and a Flamethrower.
  • Bots: different bot types to engage with.
  • Gameplay Duration: If you are one of those super-smart-gaming-ninja types, you could probably finish it under an hour, else...

Looks interesting, but not sure about the controls - takes up half the screen with those buttons...

There's a Mac/PC demo available if you wanna give it a try.

Games I'm Playing: Jetpack Joyride, Infinity Blade 2, Batman, COD
Waiting For: Thunderbeam, Lostwinds, GTA3, Sonic CD
