Primarily known for their uniquely controlled extreme sport games, Touchgrind and Touchgrind BMX, Illusion Labs is putting the finishing touches on their latest game, Blast-A-Way. As one of the few details, Illusion Labs described Blast-A-Way as "a completely new game, not a sequel to any of our other games. Kind of an Action-Adventure-Puzzler!?" Based on the teaser video, I would agree. Although, I'll add that it has an old school 3-D action-platformer feel to it as well. The casual gameplay and graphics somewhat remind me of Sway, but Blast-A-Way looks plenty fresh and fun to be optimistic about, I think. Blast-A-Way will be compatible with iPad, second generation iPad, third generation iPad, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, 32GB and 64GB third generation iPod touch, and fourth generation iPod touch, and is scheduled to be available in the App Store later this month.
