If you love Atomic Robo and his Fightin Scientists of Tesladyne, you should get in on the brand new video game adaptation of the exciting Graphic Novel series by Brian Clevinger and Scott Wegener. Use SCIENCE over braun in this action-filled platforming game with the charm of the 8 and 16 bit titles you remember fondly. Test your reflexes, coordination and memory as you race through dry landscapes, abandoned warehouses, caverns and more in an abandoned soviet weapons depot. Superscientist Helsingard is looking for something and youve gotta get there first. The story roughly follows the much anticipated animated short film being produced by theFictory.

About Atomic Robo:
The culmination of Nikola Teslas life and work is Atomic Robo. He's a humanoid automoton with a big robot brain and a quirky disposition. Robo now heads up Tesladyne Industries with a team of highly trained scientific minds and an arsenal of futuristic weaponry.

Just based on the video, it looks like a variant of the iOS "Runner Where Someone Is Chasing You" genre. Yes, no?

A few more questions, just in case the dev finds this thread:

"DLC/IAP coming soon with more levels and even more customization." Does this mean that all future levels added will be IAP? Also, what will the regular price be after 99 cents, and what will the DLC levels cost?

I'll especially be looking forward to anyone's impressions after playing this through.

Unfortunately you won't be hearing some impressions from me for quite a while. The game absolutely refuses to run on my iPhone 4 (after the Second Fiction logo the screen just goes black) and I don't have access to my iPad for quite a while. :/

Let me try deleting the game and downloading it over again. I'll be back in bit!

Dunno what to say? Yeah? But it didn't really emerge as a copy of a game or game genre. We just wanted to make a retro-looking platformer based on our favorite indie comic series.

Seems to me runners exist as a mode of trying to cope with not having a joystick. That's where we were coming from, anyway.

If you end up playing, let us know how it differs (or not)

I appreciate your extra work to try to get it going. Also, just as a troubleshooting method, maybe close any other apps as well?

Thanks for replying; nice to see you here.

I wasn't meaning to sound like that was a bad thing. I like several games in that sub-genre, I just wasn't sure if that was the whole of the gameplay based on my limited sampling via the promo video. I'll look forward to playing it, and hope the launch goes well for you.
