The folks behind Bike Baron are back with an in-development iOS application set to launch early next month. In the new game, developer Mountain Sheep charges iOS device owners with the task of "jumping" between planets in order to collect as much bounty as possible. This gets harder, however, with each passing planet. In a post recently added to the TouchArcade forums, Mountain Sheep announced the game and provided a few details concerning the upcoming title. There, the developer explains:
Beyond Gravity is procedurally generated "platformer" where you jump in-between planets and try to collect as many pickups as you can. This gets progressively harder the further you jump. No need to worry tho as you can upgrade your character with loads of upgrades and power-ups! Take control of brave space explorer and hold out as long as you can while collecting missing parts of your spaceship. Never miss to build up crazy score multipliers.If you were a fan of Bike Baron, Beyond Gravity looks like it's an app you don't want to miss. While Beyond Gravity is quite different, Mountain Sheep adds that both apps share the same "level of polish" and also get "pretty hard" at certain points. Features of the upcoming app include:
Beyond Gravity should launch on the App Store in early July, and once available it'll retail for $1.99. The good news for iOS gamers is that the title will be a premium app, and won't feature in-app purchases (IAPs) which advance player progress and unlock additional items. For more information on the app, gamers can also check out Beyond Gravity's Tumblr Web page. We'll let you know once it's available to download. Bike Baron, on the other hand, can be downloaded now for $0.99 and is optimized for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. [gallery]
