[prMac.com] Leamington Spa, United Kingdom - DemonStudios today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Super Grav 1.0, its second game title developed for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. Super Grav is a retro gravity cave flyer for 1-4 players, featuring single player or co-op multiplayer missions, racing and dogfighting. With fast-paced, super smooth 60fps gameplay, pixel-perfect collision detection and that 'just right' feel to the physics, Super Grav offers a true test of skill, precision and reflexes. Dodge enemies and bullets, navigate caverns to complete Missions either solo or co-op, battle deathmatch in Dogfight mode or see who can complete 3 subterranean laps the fastest in Race mode.
Back by popular demand, with graphics inspired by the 8-bit and 16-bit era of gaming, Super Grav is an extended remake of DemonStudios founder James Shaughnessy's very own first game and 1998 Net Yaroze coverdisc hit, Gravitation.
