PowerTools FX

PowerTools Fx, the newest iPhone and iPad App from Onteca and AppyNation, allows builders of all ages all the fun of DIY, but with none of the danger!

PowerTools FX is a fun and stress-busting application allowing you to cut up and manipulate a variety of images and surfaces with a selection of 8 power-tools. Feel like you are mastering the tools with their roaring sounds, ferocious cutting causing sparks and splinters, but all without the dusty face!

Choose your tool of creative destruction from one of these tool box favourites:

·         Angle-Grinder

·         Chainsaw

·         Circular Saw

·         Drill

·         Jig-Saw

·         Mini-Cutter

·         Sander

Then use the selected Power Tool on one of 10 different surfaces with each combination of surface and tool responding differently. Simulate the real sensation of flying splinters from cutting wood right up to exploding sparks on grinding metal.

Give classic masterpieces of art your power tools finishing touches. To add even more new enjoyment just use pictures from your devices library and create your own masterpiece collection, or take out your frustration on any image you have. Finally, don’t let your hard work go to waste, share these creations via Email, Facebook and Twitter - use wisely!

Go on; unleash your inner builder.

AppyNation is a revolution in digital games publishing that favours independence and collaboration between developers and publisher. Focusing on, but not limited to, iOS and Android social games. Born out of an idea from NESTA along with developers Finblade, Proper Games, Niffler, Onteca, Supersonic and Lightning Fish, AppyNation gives the developers freedom over the games they choose to develop for iOS, Android, Pc, Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and Facebook whilst maintaining complete control and ownership over their IP. AppyNation takes the worry and time-consuming work of marketing, PR and communication away from developers. This gives developers more time to improve upon games they already have published as well as the time needed to develop new and exciting games to add to their portfolio. AppyNation is recognised by the UK Government as providing foundations for growth and development within the industry, with Culture Minister Ed Vaizey saying that such a scheme is “exactly what the games industry needs to grow”
