Explore colorful galaxies in a action-packed game starring an Alien with his Magnet in An Alien with a Magnet

The Netherlands – January 9th, 2013 -- Ricardo de Zoete (RZDESIGN) & Lukas Hoenderdos (Rejected Games) announced their first game a while ago, which is coming to iOS and Android. An Alien with a Magnet will be an unique game filled with action-packed, magnetized & arcade-style gameplay in an extraterrestrial package starring an alien who crashed into a planet.

Take control of this alien and his spaceship and get him back to his home planet using a magnet which he attached onto his spaceship. Get ready to explore multiple galaxies, using your magnet to orbit around colorful and unique planets to get to your goal. But look out for dark holes and asteroids blocking your path, they won’t do any good to you and your spaceship!

Besides the adventure mode, you can also play the two bonus modes which will keep you busy for even more hours of fun gameplay! Beat your friends in the online leaderboards with Star Rush and get until the last level in the color mode.

We wanted to share an early build teaser video with you so you get the idea of the base of our game. This teaser was made 2-3 months ago but we figured to share it with you just now so we can amaze you all with a fully upgraded trailer coming (real) soon after this release. But even while this teaser will be a little bit outdated once it’s online, it will still give you a better idea of what we are creating.

Also, look at our new artwork and assets we’re using in-game. You’ll see some of our collectibes, power-ups, planets and more! Also we have some amazing pieces of art starring our main character. Use it as a wallpaper if you like!

Expect this fun and amazing new iOS game arriving on your iPhone, iPod Touch & iPad this Q1. So, Q1 2013!
