[prMac.com] Melbourne, Australia - Australian Game Developer Wicked Witch Software has announced the release of Jet Run: City Defender, the studio's first self-published mobile title for iOS and Android devices. Jet Run is a high-speed endless runner with intense shoot 'em up action that gives players control of a fighter jet and pits them against endless waves of alien invaders while flying through a modern metropolis. Jet Run brings an 80's retro inspired theme to the endless runner genre and cranks up the action to create the atmosphere of a sci-fi action film sequence.
"We created Jet Run: City Defender because we wanted to make an action game for mobile devices that was fresh and exciting, had fast gameplay, looked cool, and appealed to the sci-fi nerds in all of us. We are fans of the endless runner style games, and our mission was to bring a faster and more intense game to the genre," said Managing Director, Daniel Visser.
The game is designed with simple swipe and tap controls to maneuver the jet and blast enemy invaders as you fight to defend the City. City Defenders earn experience and level up by defeating enemies, and can collect various power ups to enhance the jet's performance. You can also collect medals to spend on weapon upgrades, and challenge friends to High Score competitions using the in-game friend system.
Jet Run Co-Producer and Lead Programmer, Adrian Harrison, said, "We wanted to create epic jet fighter gameplay where you could fly over tall skyscrapers, through collapsing buildings, and of course, fight a big bad Boss. We achieved this and more, and with endless waves of varied enemy types, your skills and reflexes are bound to be challenged!" Jet Run: City Defender is free to play, and is available via the App Store and Google Play Store.
The Australian studio has had international success in the mobile games market, previously teaming up with publisher Chillingo to release physics puzzler Catapult King(R), which quickly became a #1 hit and is played by over 20 million people worldwide. Catapult King(R) was named among the App Store's Best of 2012 for the casual games category, and also received an award for 'Best Sound for Interactive Media' at the 2013 ASSG Awards.
Jet Run: City Defender is the studio's latest title, with Mattel's Whac-A-Mole and Rugby League Live 2 hitting Stores earlier in the year.
