Default Lifeboat is Out

Ahoy there ya Swabs! Get ready for a spine tingling adventure on the high seas that will have you swimming with the sharks. Our latest title Lifeboat, is now available in the Apple App Store:
http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=324173956&mt=8

The normal price is $1.99 but we're starting off with an introductory price of just $.99.

I can't wait to hear what you all think of it. Let us know what you'd like to see and we'll try to get it incorporated in a future update.

Here's the official trailer as well:

The art and grafix looks good. Would have added the pics but it doesnt show in appshopper yet.

EDIT: Ah well. Here they are...

I'm not sure why, but I think there is some screwiness in the App Store right now. It was actually approved yesterday afternoon but didn't show up until this morning. Normally it takes about 2 hours or so from when it gets approved until it actually appears.

I can go more in depth later, but for a buck this is one of those no-brainers. This game had a lot of love put into it. You can tell the developers had a lot of fun making it. The voice acting of the passengers alone is worth the $.99. It is a very simple premise...tilt your boat so the passengers go toward the lifeboats, tap to throw life preservers to passengers in the water. In a game that is this simple in concept (not necessarily in playing) the attention to detail is crucial. They nailed this aspect. The voice acting that I mentioned, the auto calibration at every level start, the statistics that are kept, the art design...all top notch. I'll go more in depth later unless others already take care of that, gotta go to a wedding (not mine!), but cutting to the chase...get it while it's dirt cheap and severely underpriced!
