MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. - April 6, 2010
Engineous Games today announced that Sketch Nation Shooter, its revolutionary iPhone shoot-em-up creator, is now available for $0.99 in the App Store.
Sketch Nation Shooter is a powerful, easy-to-use tool for users to create their own games, either by taking a picture of their drawings with the iPhone camera or by importing drawings through the photo library. Once imported into the game, users can choose where to place enemies, power-ups and level obstacles and pick weapon patterns using the simple in-game editor. Players who are not in a drawing mood can use the preinstalled art packs or simply download other users’ games.
The social networking features in Sketch Nation Shooter allow players to download games from users across the world, share their own unique games, compare scores with their friends and even rate other users’ games, all through Facebook Connect.
“Sketch Nation Shooter was created to revolutionize the gaming experience. We wanted to give the power back to gamers, allow their imagination to run wild and be game developers regardless of their age or technical abilities,” said Nitzan Wilnai, CEO of Engineous Games.“Aside from creating your own game in just a few minutes, to me, the social features make the game complete. Users will always have new games to download so they will always have something new to play.”
Sketch Nation Shooter is available in the app store for 99 cents. For more information, visit their website and follow the game on Twitter .
