[prMac.com] Glenrothes, Scotland - Independent publisher Stuart McLean, today is delighted to announce the release of Backpack Harry for iPhone, iPad, iPad Pro, iPod touch and Apple TV. A platform game that expands far beyond just playing, Backpack Harry is a game that can be played by all ages of gamer and best of all, created by anyone. With the full-featured but simple-to-use level editor built-in to Backpack Harry, players get to create their own worlds, play them, share them and generally prove just how awesome, devious, cruel or sneaky they can be.
There are three world sizes to choose from and a vast selection of platform gaming mainstays to be used in the creation of levels. With these a player can craft a level with traps, enemies, obstacles, puzzles, hidden areas, collectible bonuses and everything else that makes a platform game great. With the flick of a switch a level can be transformed into an Auto-Runner game. Fans of Flappy Bird style games can use the jetpack item an their wild imaginations to make a flying game. Or everything can be combined together with the largest world size to make a truly massive game.
The only limit with Backpack Harry is a players imagination. And because it's a completely universal game, players can enjoy their, and anyone else's, creations on the big screen with the new Apple TV. Of course there's a game to Backpack Harry outside of creating your own and playing the online levels. Starting off with 24 levels to get players used to how things can be used in the game, WiteNoiz will be regularly expanding on these with quick to download, and free, level packs. And the levels you create are synced using iCloud as well. You can start off making a level on one of your iOS devices and continue making it on any other of your iOS devices when your out and about, at the office, on the train or sitting on the loo.
