Turbo Duck (iPhone/iPod Touch) available now

Update: Turbo Duck popped out of review and into the App Store and is available now at Turbo Duck iTunes page

Who can resist the lure of the beautiful iPhone? Strawdog Studios are primarily a console games developer but as several of the guys have been having a love affair with their iPhones I guess it was just a matter of time before we decided to jump into the iPhone pool. We are just putting the finishing touches to our first iPhone game Turbo Duck (www.strawdogstudios.com/games/turboduck/). Just nailing the final bugs at the moment and hope to have it uploaded in the next day or two.



Turbo Duck: It's bath-time in your pocket with Turbo Duck for the iPhone/iPod touch.

Guide Turbo Duck around the pool to Collect the flags and gain extra time while avoiding the toy boats, submarines, mines and other hazards which fill the pool. When time gets short make use of your Duck's amazing turbo boost for extra speed. (Trust me you don't want to know how he does it!)

Turbo Duck features

* 20 Levels of bath-time fun
* Bobbing boats
* Submerging (and surfacing) submarines
* Exploding mines
* Bonus Bread (Ducks like bread!)

Turbo Duck will be available in English, French Italian, German & Spanish for Apple iPhone and iPod Touch. It will be out at the end of March 2009 priced at $1.99 / 1.19 / 1,59.

Warning: Turbo Duck is intended for virtual bath time fun only. Dropping your iPhone/iPod Touch in the bath may invalidate your warranty and will certainly make you look foolish.



As I say we are just nailing the final bugs and should have it finished (pauses to whip the programmer) any moment now.

We are also preparing a gameplay video which I will post a link too.

I don't generally bathe where's there's a grass background, but that's probably me just being uptight (as usual)

Welcome to TA, thanks for posting here
I saw this on Fingergaming 2 days ago and like the looks of it. Do you have any gameplay video?

I was hoping the video would get done before GDC as most of the team are of to San Francisco. Sadly it hasn't as they were working on the GDC build of another game so it will mean a delay of a week on the video.

No worries, we can wait. In the meantime, can we have a little peek of your 'other game'?

Never mind the little ones. I could have fun with that. But then, I like toys...

Got your email Superbad but I am in HK. Hopefully the guys in San Fran will pick it up too and have time in their schedule to meet.
