The little crane that could [FREE]

The little crane that could. A game like no other that offers a truly unique experience. What other game lets you shoot a hoop with a 10 ton machine, do archeology in Egypt, restore temples in Greece, repair bridges, dispose nuclear waste, bombard city walls, and more?

A realistic physics simulation gives you full control over the crane: rotate, elevate, bend, extend and grapple. It's no walk in the park, not a casual game by any means. You'll need to hone your spatial skills before you will be crowned a crane expert.

Planned release is end of januari 2011, with support for:
-iPad/iPhone/iPod
-OpenGL-ES2 shading
-Real Time Shadowing
-Retina Display graphics
-Game Center Leaderboards
-Game Center Achievements
-Multitouch crane controls
-4 free levels
-6 premium levels via IAP

This actually looks pretty cool, looking forward to the release!
How long will the 4+6 levels last?

The game duration depends on your skills.
Judging from the leaderboards, most players set a 10 minute time on the harder levels. I don't know in how many attempts though.

Hi Bram. I'm the idiot from indiegamer who said you should finish this and get it out. Great to see it doing well.
