GUILDFORD, UK– October 11, 2009– Glenn Corpes, formerly of Bullfrog and EA, has today released an updated gameplay video of his upcoming title, Ground Effect.
Developed exclusively for the iPod and iPod Touch and inspired by ekranoplan technology, Ground Effect boasts incredible 3D graphic detail, never before seen in any game of its type. The gameplay itself will appeal to lovers of fast-paced, competitive action games as well as those who prefer something more sedate and relaxing.
“Ground Effect has been a long time in development and many improvements have been made over recent months. I’m hoping that it will be ready for release in a few weeks’ time.”
Ground Effect is set on a series of scenic, deserted islands, rich in green foliage and dramatic natural features including steep cliffs, winding coastal paths, blue lagoons and breathtaking skies. On each level, terrain varies between challenging courses dodging between rocks and islets and clinging to winding mountain roads.
