Touchy Update Released!

It’s Friday and what does that mean… well something slightly different this time.

We are very proud to announce that the Nitrome Touchy App on iTunes and Google Play has been updated. So what does that mean to you the humble gamer? Well you can check out the video... or read on, or why not do both!!!

The Touchy technology has been updated and now we feel that the Touchy dpad is the best touch screen dpad interface on the market! All of our previous dpad based Touchy games have been updated. Also we must add that there is now wide screen support for iPhone5 and various Android devices. 

And that’s not all! We have 5 more games that have been added to the Nitrome Touchy Catalogue. They are as follows:


Awesome news!

There are now over 200,000 Nitromians on our Facebook Page, Hurray!

A big thank you goes out to everyone that is already a member of the Nitrome community. You are all awesome!

For anyone that would like to keep up to date with all things Nitrome related, head over to and like the page!

Happy gaming everyone!

It's Wednesday already! Where has the week gone!

So today we wanted to tell you guys that we're working on a sequel to Test Subject Arena, yes... we are making Test Subject Arena 2!!! And this time you get to choose from 8 characters to play as!

So we will tell you more about this new game soon enough but for now we thought we’d wet your appetites by showing you a couple of new character animations from the game.

Have a good day all!

Play Running Warrior!

Hi Nitromians!

Today's Pixel Love game is Running Warrior by Fliptic. We really love the art style in Fliptic games, and this is no exception.

Run your way through the environment slaying enemies gaining coins and upgrading your warrior. As simple as the gameplay sounds, it is a real joy to play and the simplicity adds to that enjoyment.

Play Running Warrior!

Have fun, and we'll see you next week for more Pixel Love!

As a lot of you are probably hoping or assuming, we are indeed working on more levels for Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage which will be contained in a swanky new pack!

We hinted at what the level pack will be in the initial release and as you can see from the pack shot, it will be to do with a giant sea beast with tentacles and all that sort of cool stuff! Actually taking it a step further it will be set 'inside' the body of the huge beast which will consume you in a very cool and hard to program cut scene at the beginning! ...excited yet?

Exciting news Nitromians!

We have not one but TWO updates currently being worked on for Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage. One of those is the next level pack, which is coming along very nicely (more news on that later). Before the pack update however we have another update which is pretty special in its own right. There will be various little tweaks to the main game in the update, but the major element we are adding is achievements. However in the usual Nitrome fashion, we are approaching it slightly differently to everyone else.

The Achievements will be recorded in game centre (and Google Play Games when the Android version hits), but the actual system is much more integrated into the game world. Meaning if you don’t want to use game centre for any reason they’ll function fine and you can still collect them all.

More Bug Fixes!

Hey everyone,

We have fixed some more account bugs! Just to keep you all up to date with what we feel has been fixed, check out this list.

Account Bug Fixes:

  • Private Messages should now display correctly. Some people have reported to us that their messages were disappearing for no reason. This should now be resolved! 
  • Unhearting games should also work as expected. If you have tried to unheart a game and it didn't remove itself from your list, try hearting and unhearting it again and it should work.
  • The "Touchy" skin has also been fixed. We received reports that the skin was not working as intended and was only showing a small tile when viewed on the "view skin" page. This should now be working properly.

We still have more bugs to fix, thanks to everyone for reporting them to us!

As always, if you have any more issues with accounts that you'd like to share with us, feel free to send a message, write a comment or tell us on our Facebook Page!

Play Ripple Dot Zero!

Hi Nitromians!

Today's Pixel Love game is Ripple Dot Zero created by the talented folks over at Pixeltruss!

This game really takes us back to our 90's consoles with its awesome soundtrack and style! The artwork is very slick giving the game a powerful atmosphere and environment.

The controls are very intuitive and clean. This allows you to move the penguin hero as accurately as you would expect.

We recommend checking this out if you haven't already!

Have Fun, and we will see you next week for more Pixel Love!

Friday Update!

Howdy, It's Friday update time Nitromians!

We mentioned that the Touchy app will be updated very soon and wanted to give you a little more detail in what the update means.

We've been experimenting a lot and trying to improve the controller experience. One of the most difficult things to do well is have the d-pad controller scheme feel natural on a touch screen. We wanted to create a d-pad where you don’t have to look at the device to position your thumbs after missing the flipping thing… and we think we've cracked it!

We recognise that people use different size screens and have different size hands, so how do you cater for these variables? By having a d-pad that can move with your touch and simultaneously predict which direct…

More Great Fan Art!

Hey Nitromians,

Check out this really neat Nitrome Tribute fanart made by Gratteurdenez over on deviant art. We think its great, there has clearly been a lot of skill and effort here with so many characters involved.

You can check out a much larger version of it via this link

We really appreciate all of the fan-art we get. So if you have anything interesting you think deserves showcasing then please send it in via accounts, messaging, email or via the Nitrome Facebook Page.

Play Sydney Hunter!

Hi Nitromians!

This week's pixel love game is Sydney Hunter created by Keith Erickson of Studio Pina!

We really enjoyed this adventure game. The view distance was handled cleverly with the viewable area fading into a deep blue tone. It adds a real sense of urgency when trying to aim your boomerang attacks.

The music and sound effects fit in very well with this game and accent the retro graphics elegantly. There is a lot of fun to be had boomeranging the enemies and collecting the items in this one!

Have fun! We'll see you next Monday for more Pixel Love!

Touchy Controller!

Hey Nitromians!

Here's a little more info regarding our Touchy Game Controller update that we're working on.

As we mentioned before, the app will be updated shortly. In conjunction with the update, we will be adding a lot more games to the Touchy library, with even more to come shortly afterwards.

Oh and we are going to add another free game to play with the app!

Here's an image of the controller skin for Test Subject Green... 'cause we love it!

Have a great weekend everyone, we'll see you all next week!

Hi Nitromians!

It has been a while since we posted any fan art, so we thought that today we'd share some cool art that we found.

Made by a Nitromian that goes by the name Tooniefox on deviantart, this piece of fan art features Parasite from our Parasite Game.

We think that the detail and effort that has gone into this has really paid off, we especially like the colour choices!

Thanks Tooniefox, It's awesome!

If you have any fan art you have made about Nitrome please do send it in! We love everything we get sent especially if it is our work applied to something we have never seen before. We will feature the best, most striking and most unusual pieces in our blog.
