Gothenburg, Sweden - February 16th, 2010– Indie game developer TimeTrap teams up with developer and handheld specialist Innogiant to bring the action packed retro platformer to the iPhone and iPod Touch platform.
Emberwind was initially released for the PC and Mac platform in December 2009 and was well received by both press and gamers. Its lush beatiful graphics and easy to pick up game play accompanied with the skill progression system offers something both for the casual and younger audience while still providing a challenge for the avid gamers.
Hookedgamer.com writes about Emberwind: "Emberwind is a solid game. I honestly can't find anything wrong with it. I for one will certainly return to the city of Grendale for some repeat action to fill the time between the big AAA titles releases this spring."
Erik Möller, founder of TimeTrap says "Bringing Emberwind to a mobile platform is a natural next step and rather than taking our resources from developing our upcoming titles we chose to team up with Innogiant. With their proven track record on the platform and our already portable source code I'm confident they will create a great experience on the iPhone and iPod Touch platform."
