[prMac.com] Bochum, Germany - Last Target is now available exclusively for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Last Target is a highly addicting game where players need to navigate a pellet through a course consisting out of countless platforms and bricks headed into deep space - just by tilting the iPhone or the iPad. The uniqueness of the new game of skill: There is no end as the world rises up infinite to the space.
In Last Target the player controls a ball, rolling over platforms floating around in the space. Countless junctions and bricks are connected with each other - to a construct full of deadly deep hollows, stretching in every direction. On the way not only the omnipresent chasms are a big problem. There are also lots of sabers swinging in deadly circles, moving opponents, cannons and other types of enemies, just making the life difficult.
Jan-Niklas Freundt, with the age of 16 one of the youngest app developers around the world, worked 8 months on Last Target: "The biggest challenge is to stay alive as long as possible while avoiding all the obstacles. There are no levels, the journey is infinite and different every time you play."
Everywhere on the platforms the player can collect so called "Uranium". With sufficient "Uranium" it is possible to upgrade abilities, buy power-ups and even new pellets. This will allow the player to add a bright shining shield to his pellet, get higher scores in less time and make it even possible to resurrect after death.
Freundt: "Many games are loosing attractiveness as soon as all levels are mastered: Nobody wants to start again. Last Target does not repeat itself. Every game is different. Depending on the players' skills the game is over after a few seconds or a few hours."
The efforts are worth it. Last Target supports the Game Center with global leader-boards where players can compare their skills. Additionally it is possible to unlock 15 achievements. Last Target, for iPhone and iPod touch, and Last Target HD, for the iPad, are now available for 0,99$ in the U.S. and are priced accordingly in other regions. Both versions are available world-wide from Apple's App Store. The app was featured by the major review site AppVader before its official release.
Jan-Niklas Freundt is 16 years old and therefore one of the youngest app developers. Starting with Windows development at 12 years of age he soon realized the possibilities of Apple's iOS. One year ago he published his first app, i.Event, and continued distributing i.Protect - The Security Bag, i.Note, Alarm Clock Ultimate HD and Doodle Downwards. Last Target is his sixth app for Apple's mobile operating system. With Beatmaster and Downloaded! he developed his first apps for the Macintosh. Copyright (C) 2012 Jan-Niklas Freundt.
