Thanks for putting this up In case anyone's interested there's more info at www.slamjetstadium.com and I write fairly frequently about making the game on my blog.

Let me know if you have any questions!

It's no secret I've really been looking forward to this. It's already out where I am, but I'm waiting till my girlfriend sleeps to start working on tonight's haul. Just curious...this is completely free of IAPs, right?

Superb, superb game. Feels great, looks absolutely wonderful, it doesn't even feel like a video game at times. Can't recommend this enough. Alister, you've outdone yourself. This is perfect in every single way.

Minor nitpicking about the app title having ellipses on our devices though. Any way that could be changed to either Slamjet S. or S. Stadium?

Thanks very much, metalcasket! Really glad you're enjoying it!

Yeah, I can change the short app title in an update. I think it'll probably be Slamjet S. unless I can think of anything cleverer

Same question I have to ask every time a new iPad only game comes out - Is there an iPhone version in the works, or is this an iPad exclusive?

Awesome. Love this damn game so much. It just feels like it was ripped out of an arcade in the 90s. The music, the voiceovers, the sound effects, those colors... everything just reminds me of the countless hours I spent in the local arcade back in Oman.

It really wouldn't work. :/ There's just so much going at one time on your screen and without that extra screen estate, it would be far too crammed on an iPhone screen.

This is absolutely phenomenal. Looks great, feels great and controls great. I think it'd be worth a punt making it Universal. Wouldn't mind trying it on my phone. Sterling work anyhow.

Thanks very much! So glad you're having fun with it! To answer the questions about iPhone versions, it would take quite a bit of a redesign to make it work on the smaller screen - particularly the multiplayer - so I don't think a direct port would work.

I think if I were to do an iPhone version it would be a different game using the same core mechanics, to make something that makes the most of the smaller screen. I haven't worked out exactly what it would be yet, but it is a possibility
