    Hi all,

    Enter-Brain-Ment is an independent game development studio located in Berlin. We are currently porting our Award Winning game Somersault for the iPhone.

    Somersault is an action platform game with really great graphics. We are re-designing and improving the graphics and are adding more game-features to the iPhone version. Our aim is to produce a high class game using all the possibilities the iPhone offers.

    The main features of the game are:
    Intuitive and unique controls draw a paddle on the screen to control the character, turn the mobile to change the view from portrait format to landscape, zoom in and out with 2 fingers
    Full 3-D graphics
    20 levels in 6 different worlds with unique designs
    A huge variety of enemies
    Different power ups and abilities
    Online high score + Twitter & Facebook connection

    Somersault will be released in February 2010.

    We would love to hear your first impression, opinions and/or feedback of any expectation you may hope to see.

    Cheers!

    Hi folks,

    we have been really busy lately with the development of Somersault. Today we present you our latest gameplay video with all the new elements we finished so far.

    You can see/hear:
    1 new level (nature world)
    the menu screen
    all levels with light- and shadowmaps
    game elements like coins
    the User Interface
    new soundtrack for the nature world



    Enjoy! Feedback (positive as negative) is very welcome as we are still in the production process!

    In the next video you will see a little more action as we are going to present you some enemies and the ways to beat them.

    Somersault will be released in November 2009 so stay tuned!

    Hey,

    we are still thinking about the price point. It will be no 99er though. Promo codes will be given out after release.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    we got further in the production of Somersault and implemented the enemies. Please watch our new video were you can see the latest progress.

    Unfortunately we will not be able to release the game in the next week. We had to move the launchdate to end of December. I hope you all can wait a little longer but we want to release a 100% finished game. There were too many ideas we wanted to implement.

    Enjoy the video and stay tuned!

    Really interesting looking game, will there be a way to slow it down?

    Looks pretty hectic at the moment, don't think my below average reflexes will be able to cope.

    But I do think it looks like one of the more original games, and beautiful.

    Thanks man! It may look hectic but it is really easy to play. The controls are very intuitive and you can influence the character pretty well. The longer you draw the paddle the higher the character jumps. We let many peole try it and they learned the controls pretty fast. So, no worries

    Glad you like it! We would also like to release it now but we want it to be perfect So far we cannot say anything about the price. As we are a small studio (5 people) and have been working a long time on the game we can say that it will not be a 99 cent game but it won't be very expensive neither. We keep you informed

    Hi all,

    unfortunately we were not able to finish the game yet. We had some problems in the production process and again we added some new ideas. For those reasons we have to postpone the release date to February 2010. We hope you guys can understand that but this is our baby and it has to be perfect
    We are really sorry and believe us that we cannot wait to release the game to see how much you like it.

    Until then we wish you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

    Hi!

    We were excited about the release of the new iPad and that it will be compatible with iPhone apps. But we were wondering how especially 2D games will look on a bigger screen Somersault should work fine as the whole game is 3D but we are not sure if the processor of the iPad is strong enough to let the games run smoothly on a higher solution.

    What do you think or did you hear anything about that?
