February 10th, 2010– Halfbrick today announces the iPhone version of Blast Off, a stellar arcade puzzle game featuring lost astronauts and bizarre planetary systems! Use your rocket ship to rescue astronauts and carry them through the warpgate to safety. But be careful! The ever-present force of gravity can help you on your journey, but can also bring you crashing down.

Blast Off received universal critical acclaim as one of the best PSP minis released, and is currently ranked in the top 25 games of all time on Metacritic’s PSP category.

Halfbrick is taking the game to the next level on iPhone. In addition to the massive variety of levels and planets across multiple difficulty settings, the team is developing intuitive touch screen controls and a brand new Endless Mode, where you can compete for high scores around the world on global leaderboards.

Touch space with Blast Off. Its surreal atmosphere and simple, addictive gameplay will be an excellent addition to any iPhone library when it is released in early March.
