Gyro13 – Steam Copter Arcade HD is available in the App Store

For immediate release.

Prague – September 22th, 2011

Gyro13 builds on the principles of classic arcade games from the first half of the 80s, whose typical representative could be Choplifter (1982). In

Gyro13 players control a copter and save miners stuck in vast gyroxide mines somewhere in South America. Huge mining complexes are full of dangers, from narrow corridors, shafts and gusts to giant pendulums, cranes, mechanical hammers, mining trains and mine fields. The underground is also contaminated with poisonous gas; therefore it is important to save all miners within a time limit. There are 126 miners waiting in 24 levels for aircraft novice Kowalski. Will he manage to carry out all orders of General Rodriguez?

Development of the game began in the spring of 2010 and its primary goal was to fuse classic gameplay features with elaborate 3D graphics and physical simulation. That is why when considering the technology we decided for the UDK game engine (Unreal Engine) from Epic Games. This technology allowed us to fully take advantage of the current features of iPads and iPhones, including an effective HD treatment.

Players can look forward to a technologically advanced and stylishly created arcade game in a steampunk setting. With the increasing difficulty of levels the pilot’s story unfolds, whose atmosphere is supported by a professional voiceover and an impressive soundtrack.

The game will is available in the App Store as a universal application optimized for iPad 2, iPad, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod 3 Touch and iPod 4 Touch. We are also planning an optimization for the brandnew iPhone 5 and Game Center support in the next update.

PC, Mac and Android are the next platforms that we are now preparing the game for and we plan this release for the turn of 2011/2012.
