Jump, Joe, jump!

Good news! Today we released an update to Joe Danger Touch!

Last week we realised players have collected eight billion gold coins in JD Touch. If we had a dollar for every gold coin collected, that’d be like EIGHTY THOUSAND DOLLARS. No wait… Less? For the record Mum, we don’t get a dollar for each for them. Only Shigeru Miyamoto was smart enough to get that kind of deal. MIYAMOTO!

The update is going to add our most requested feature, iCloud support, so you can play on your iPhone then continue on your iPad, or vice versa. We’ve also fixed every bug reported so far, as well as made a bunch of tweaks to gameplay and such.

Do you want to see iCloud support in action? Watch this!

It’s actually taken way longer than we expected to finish this update! We got a bit excited adding a few new game mechanics, and now that has potentially become something far, far bigger. But it’s not quite ready yet. I probably shouldn’t say much more at the moment, but I’ll be in touch as soon as I can (it’s super exciting).

Also, look out later for a chance to tell us what you’d like to see in Joe Danger Touch’s next update. Engage imaginations … now! We’re super excited to find out what crazy stuff you come up with. Also a bit scared!

Joe Danger Touch is a brand new game that we’ve build from the ground up specifically with lovely touch controls in mind, and we’re rather excited about it. We’re particularly excited because it comes out at midnight tonight for all iOS devices!

Here’s a trailer we made!
