Independent developer Rogue Rocket Games – whose co-founders previously worked on classic hits like Earthworm Jim, MDK, and Escape From Monkey Island – lit the fuse today to launch their charming Wild West themed physics puzzler Gunpowder on the iPad! Gunpowder is available now on the Apple App Store as a “Pay Once and Play” title for $4.99. When the dastardly Boss Grimshaw swindles the innocent townspeople of their gold to fund his railroad, a lone hero emerges: Incendio. Inspired by the tale of Robin Hood, Incendio sets out to make Grimshaw pay through the nose. Armed with their wits and a keg of gunpowder, players must help Incendio liberate the town's stolen gold by blasting Grimshaw's safes and piggy banks sky-high through a series of carefully choreographed chained explosions.
Today's launch trailer for Gunpowder teaches players how to keep the flame alive with Gunpowder's easy to pick up but immersive physics-based gameplay elements. The first lesson in Pyrotechnics 101 starts with drawing lines of gunpowder with your finger. Players must then strategically place barrels to solve puzzles and discover surprise chain reactions through the use of numerous environmental objects such as flaming wagons, Gatling guns, chandeliers, cannons, mine carts and more! With the explosive tools at your disposal, you must recover the stolen gold and redistribute the wealth to bring order to the Wild West.
Gunpowder is a one-of-a-kind physics-based puzzle game featuring colorful artwork, a charming backstory and clever game design that is sure to appeal to gamers of all ages. With 125 unique levels, timed trials, numerous Easter eggs, unlockable achievements and the ability to compete against friends via Apple's Game Center, Gunpowder can be played many times over, as players seek to find the fastest and best way to solve each puzzle.
Gunpower is available now on the Apple App Store for $4.99 in the "Pay Once and Play" category. It is compatible with the iPad Gen 2 or newer, running iOS 6.0 and above, and can be downloaded at http://apple.co/1EYVcfz
