Hello everyone! Hope you're well!

I'm looking forward to the weekend myself! Perhaps this will entertain you!

Not sure about it? Let me try and persuade you further with a video!

The game has a unique gameplay mechanic - your Air Supply is constantly running out!

This does away with a traditional 'lives' system. You can only die if you fall into a gap, or your air supply runs out!

Collecting Air will keep it up, obviously, but you have to look out for enemies (if you collide with them, or get shot by a UFO, you lose a unit of air!).

Air Supply also has an extensive unlock system. Collecting air will unlock new music tracks while stars will unlock new characters.

Killing lots of enemies unlocks new ranks - from 'Harmless' to the coveted title of 'Elite'. This also gives you access to new colours!

Finally, distance run will unlock new levels, with new enemies in them!

All this is wrapped in some truly beautiful 1bit graphics and an amazing 1bit soundtrack - composed by Mister Beep using the ZX Spectrum's beeper! Amazing what that guy can do!

I hope you guys enjoy the game and look forward to your thoughts on it!

Have a FANTASTIC weekend! Don't do anything I'd do, ok?

I was getting a little bored of the endless runner type games, although they can still be fun, i've played so many I nearly didnt give this a go. Well, due to some of the unique twists and the constant threat of the air supply, it certainly isnt your run of the mill endless runner. Plenty of achievements and unlocks, very good effort, keep up the good work

Looks pretty cool. Are the 15 achievements via Game Center or are they in game only?

When it said 'unique and gorgeous looking' in the title, I must say I came in skeptical. But that does look gorgeous. Absolutely lovely work. A beautiful style and really well done.

Thanks - they were fun to put in, and we aimed for giving the player *something* every 10 minutes of play!

Thank you so much! That 3DS at the end of the month is looking more and more like a reality

Sir, thank you for your comment. I had the help of two brilliant artists on this one. Like yourself, I'm always wary when people big up their own games - and I was a tad wary writing what I wrote. I know some people won't like the game, or will find fault with it somewhere. But comments like yours, and everyone else's supporting posts, really help!

Especially when I haven't slept at all!

Many thanks everyone! Has anyone spotted the 'Elite' references yet?
