S.C.U.D. by BitCaper

A couple weeks ago BitCaper mentioned that we were working on a new game. This is that game...



There are many dangers lurking in deep space. But in that space the most valuable substance exists: Flexite. Buried deep within the shattered pieces of stars, flexite is the mineral that makes the universe turn. The fields are too dangerous for ordinary mining expeditions, they are riddled with marauders, smugglers, pirates and all sorts of maniacal pests. The crew of the Space Carrier: Ultima Draco, S.C.U.D., are the only pilots with the skill and recklessness necessary to navigate the dangerous reaches of the deep space mines.

Choose from three pilots, each with a unique spacecraft. Guide your craft through the asteroid fields, blasting the flexite out of the rocks, and shooting the rocks off anyone that gets in your way. Flexite fuels the upgrades to your ship. Collect enough to create the most powerful craft in the universe. Guns get bigger, ships get faster, and the danger gets deeper as you mine as much Flexite from the asteroids as possible. Your enemies are relentless and numerous, but destroy them and they will drop special weapons to help you in your expedition of multiple play modes. Suit up and flex your trigger finger in anticipation of the newest space shooter to come to the iPhone and iPod Touch: S.C.U.D.

Check out the website for S.C.U.D., there you will find some character art as well as our first development podcast. Development is moving along quickly and we hope to have screen shots and more information soon.

This is one of the most disturbing things I've ever read.

In spite of this, we still await your appearance S.C.U.D.

We are shooting for around 1.99 depending on a lot of different factors.

Anyways what does your game bring to the unique iPhone/iPod Touch platform and how does your control work with this platform?
