App description: SLINGSHOT YOUR WAY ACROSS 3D PLANETS IN THIS UNIQUE AND BEAUTIFUL FREE ACTION PUZZLER

Earn your place in outer space with a revolutionary twist on mobile gaming action! Bounce and roll your way across rotating 3D planets, racing against the clock to gather goodies from the surface and get back to your rocket before the auto-launch sequence kicks in.

Stranded in a strange star system far from home, our fearless Gophernaut finds himself with his ship running on empty. Players hop from planet to planet collecting as many Fusion Crystals as they can to continue the journey home.

Collect as many supplies as you can as you sprint along the maze-like pathways, avoiding traps and enemies. Its a race against the clock: when the countdown hits zero your ships auto-launch initiates and its game over for our little gopher!

PLAN A STRATEGY
Before each level begins pan across the planet surface to gain insight into where the obstacles lie and plan your path.

TOUCH N GLIDE CONTROLS
Drag back and release the Gophernaut to slingshot him like a pinball across the field of play. Discover awesome Bumpers and Boost Pads that accelerate you forward at light speed!

THE CLOCK IS TICKING
Its a race to make it to your ship before the last seconds run out, but keep an eye out for Time Boosts to add a few precious seconds.

NEW CHALLENGES AWAIT
Dreaded Roller Bots and Doom Balls lurk behind corners and chase you mercilessly, but the Power Suits awarded on every level grant you special skills to help deal with these and other obstacles!

A TRULY BEAUTIFUL GAME
Not only is Gopher Launch fun to play, its highly detailed 3D models and exquisite graphics also make it a lush visual experience.

awp69's comments:
Stumbled upon this and guess it got lost in the shuffle with this week's releases. Anyway, it's a pretty darn fun and challenging, timed maze-like game with sling shot mechanics.

Another great freemium release this week (IAP only for disabling ads from what I've seen). Well worth checking out IMO:

Gopher Launch

Thanks awp! Just released this game a few days ago. We're just getting into mobile games and this is our first effort in that space. I have to say, it was a blast making it! Hope you guys enjoy..

Any feedback you might have would be much appreciated.

Welcome to the forum! Gotta say this is a really fantastic first release on the iOS/Android. Impressive graphics, fun and quite challenging gameplay (damn it can be tricky to get all five orbs within some of those time allotments).

It can be a little frustrating at times trying to do the slingshot thing under pressure and maybe occasionally hard to get the mechanism to work as quickly as you need it to.

But overall, the game is a blast and looking forward to any updates and/or future games from you.

Just hope this gets some more notice from the TA community here as well!

Thanks for your kind words awp.

I fully agree about the frustration factor - that was one of the primary concerns we had about the game going into release. The other thing we wondered about was if the zoom level was going to be a problem for people on smaller form-factor phones - the whole 3d planet thing makes it tricky to get the planet in frame and still see your character in any detail.

Anyways, really appreciate you taking the time to post this up.

Cheers!
