[prMac.com] Espoo, Finland - Janne Hansen proudly announces that his indie game BOUNCE dy (short for BOUNCE delivery) has today been released worldwide on the App Store. The things gamers loved in the classic bouncing games of the 80's, now return reloaded with physics, speed and control on the iPhone.
BOUNCE dy is a tribute to the pocket games of the eighties. The Player takes control of the Paddle, and helps the BOUNCE dy brothers deliver the falling items into safety. The simplicity makes the game easy to learn, while modern physics keeps the game interesting. The game doesn't feel pre-decided - the player is truly in control, and most of the fun comes from the sheer panic of trying to save the falling items.
Janne Hansen describes his game: "I think BOUNCE dy as my show of respect to the games I used to play when I was a kid at the eighties. They had heart. The games of that time were simple and easy to learn, yet extremely addictive. Usually the games couldn't be won - they just got harder and faster, until... Game Over. Single game took about three minutes, so the player could have a quick run anywhere. These were the things I tried my best to re-create in BOUNCE dy - wanted it to have that same heart."
Of course, there's something new: "The seemingly easy bouncing turns more difficult as the player advances in the game. If the player wants to make it through the day, he has to learn a few tricks to better control the bounce. And then, just for the flavor, the game will throw in special items to bounce..."
The game is equipped with Game Center leaderboards and achievements, which enable the players to challenge each other worldwide - go for highest scores, longest streak or see who gets all the achievements.
