Metaversal Studios Announces "Updraft Jack", New iOS Game

Brighton, MA—Game developer Metaversal Studios is excited to announce their latest game title Updraft Jack, scheduled to release in January as a free game for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

Updraft Jack is Metaversal's first game created with the Unity game engine and features eye-popping 3D graphics and fast-paced gameplay suitable for players of all ages and skill levels. The title character is a sugar glider, a small Australian marsupial that can glide like a flying squirrel through the game's rainforest setting. The player collects power-ups, avoids obstacles and dodges enemies while gliding through the rainforest canopy. But danger is never far behind - a ferocious and hungry owl is close on Jack's heels!

" Updraft Jack is a fresh take on the dash game genre," said Matt Sughrue, VP of Product Development for Metaversal Studios, "It's gorgeous to look at and easy to pick up and play. It's a great game for players of all ages. Plus it has kookaburras, and as we all know, kookaburras are red hot right now!"

Other iOS games by Metaversal Studios include Shave Me!, Bad Apples, Battle Harvest, Elemites and GameRoom. Since its release in 2010 Bad Apples has been downloaded over 1.5 million times, while Shave Me! has seen almost 6 million downloads across iOS and Android platforms since its 2009 release.
