[prMac.com] Farmers Branch, Texas - Magnin & Associates has announced its recent Space Station Challenge 1.0 (iOS and Android) is now also available on Apple TV. Space Station Challenge is a 3d simulation of docking with the International Space Station and then performing five specific EVA missions. Use the dual joystick interface to modify the orientation of the vehicle with one control, while using the other to carefully move closer to the space station dock. Use similar controls to control the jetpack on your space suit during EVA. Ground control vocally guides players through the various maneuvers, as needed. The view of the earth from the International Space Station orbiting some 200 miles above is spectacular. Optionally shares your accomplishments with Facebook, Twitter, Weibo, email, or instant messaging.
According to producer Ed Magnin, "Some of the most interesting games are those that let you do something you can't to in real life. Whose going to let an old game developer like me go the space station?"
The game was programmed by Willie Johnson, Jr, with graphics and level design by Travis Mueller. Matt Campana created the music, and the excellent audio effects.
