Cabby update out tomorrow

— by
20th June 2012

We are delighted to announce that the Cabby update we have been working on over the last month or so has been approved and will hit the App Store tomorrow!

So what’s in the update? Quite a bit, as you can see from this new trailer!

Seeing as Cabby was over 2 years old, we felt simply rebuilding it to run on the latest devices wasn’t going to be enough. So we decided to spend a bit more time on it to make the most of what the latest devices could manage, while ensuring it would still run on first gen devices (just like it always has!!).

Here’s a quick run down of some of the most notable new features:-

  • New and improved Arcade Mode which uses a star system to reward the player for achieving certain goals
  • Improved Career Mode to make it more fun and dynamic
  • New tilt control option
  • Levels have been re-imagined to not only look nicer, but also to perform better on all devices
  • New customer types: their wealth is now indicated by the colour of their clothes – go for the richer clients for a bigger payday!
  • New port models, customer models & animations, as well as many other visual enhancements
  • New time of day effects and dynamic lighting
  • Added achievements and Game Center support
  • Added optional in-app purchases for unlockable items (all unlocks can still be achieved in normal play)
  • New and improved UI for all versions
  • Added playlist support so you can listen to your own music while you play
  • New universal build
  • Added support for native resolutions of all devices with 2x MultiSample Anti-Aliasing on high-end devices
  • Added multitask support
  • Spanish translation (possibly more translations in the future)

We’ve got lots of improvements and a few new features planned for an update, but we will go into more detail about that later on. For now, even though it’s still very early days, here are a few screen shots to give you an idea how it might end up looking in HD!

Prisoner 84 in HD

— by
27th March 2012

We recently decided to take a short break from our latest game so that we could finally get around to enhancing Prisoner 84 for the newer devices. We know…finally, right?

Although it’s not as far reaching an update as we had planned (last time I checked there are still only two of us!), we have managed to get it looking a lot nicer on higher resolution screens.

The main areas we have concentrated on for this update are new weapon models, as well as new character models – for which I created new, higher poly models from scratch, together with larger texture maps.

We have also enhanced the UI for HD devices so that it’s not only nicer looking, but also hopefully more scalable.

Here are a few early screen shots showing off some of the bits we’ve given a spring clean (you can find more here)…




We will hopefully be submitting this update to apple very soon.

Sneak peak at our next game – Project Iota

— by
18th January 2012

This is an early look at our next game, which we’ve been working on for the last few months.

It’s an as yet untitled physics-based destruction game and the concept is to place and detonate bombs to cause damage to certain objects.

We’re currently working on a whole host of game modes, and we’re planning on including full Game Center support.

We will be releasing more information over the coming weeks.

Prisoner 84 Update Now Available

— by
30th July 2010

The latest update for Prisoner 84 has just passed submission so should be appearing on all iTunes App Stores over the next day or so.

The update hopefully addresses most of the main issues people were having with the game, including: a fix for the sound-related crash bug that some iPhone 4 users were experiencing during key card swipe and slider hold games; as well as including a few GUI tweaks and improvements, like a larger directional pad to hopefully make movement a lot easier.

Click here or on the image below to head over to the iTunes App Store to get the latest version.
