Hi Nitromians,

we let our friends at Pocket Gamer have an advanced play of Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage on Android which included the new Kraken level pack and they wrote up some impressions: 

"Given that I lost track of time and spent longer playing the forthcoming level pack for the Gold Award-winning Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage than I intended, I'd say it's pretty darn good."

sounds like they enjoyed it and you all should be able to tomorrow!

Play The Valley Rule!

Hi Nitromians,

Today we have got a great Pixel Love game for you to check out, The Valley Rule by Ryan Carag and Bill Kiley.

The game has both a very well crafted ambient soundscape with highly polished pixel artwork.

The gameplay and level structure is really well put together. The only down side of this game is that we'd love to have more of it, but for a game that was made in 72 hours (We are astonished at the level of finish this game has for the time scale it was created in), we think this is a real gem.

Have fun, we'll bring you another Pixel Love game next week!

The Countdown Starts!

Hi Nitromians, 

with only 5 more days to go we felt it was a good time to start a countdown for the Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage android release! We hope you are all excited... it has been a lot of hard work but we hope you will agree it was worth it.

It will also be the launch day for the Kraken update on iOS (and yes it is in the Android build too). Anyone who has an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch that has not already downloaded the game can do so here.

So look to the side panel and count down with us for the release next Wednesday!

We know we are being very Icebreaker news heavy at the moment so for anyone not as into Icebreaker (shame on you!) we have lots of other interesting things that we have been working on too including new flash games and we'll start sharing once we get Icebreaker out :)

Have a great weekend everyone!

Hey Nitromians,

New Ditto Skin!

Hey Nitromians,

For those of you who haven’t noticed, we have just released a BRAND NEW SKIN!

We thought that our last skin was a little out dated, being a winter theme and all. So we have made a brand new Ditto based background for you all.

Why Ditto? I hear you ask. Well... in a nutshell, it’s one of our latest games and one that we are particularly proud of. For those of you who missed the game you can play Ditto here.

You can change the website background, view the full skin, or even download it by visiting the skin page here: http://www.nitrome.com/skins/

Are there any other games that you would like to see have their own skin?

We hope you enjoy it :)

Play Cathode Raybits!

Hi Nitromians!

We've got a great Pixel Love game for you today, Cathode Raybits!

WARNING: There is some profanity from the outset of this game so play at your own discretion!

If you enjoyed playing Mega Man, we think you'll really like this one. The artwork looks fantastic and the sounds are authentic to the era, giving us some real nostalgia. Be warned, this game is really difficult! :)

Have fun everyone, we'll bring you another Pixel Love game next week!

Indie Game Showcase

Apple just posted their second Indie Game showcase to their editorial section and this time it features Kumobius who are best known on the app store for their hit game Duet and their pixelrific Time Surfer an Beans Quest.

More relevant to Nitrome is that they very kindly chose Icebreaker as one of their favourite games which is highlighted in the piece. Always awesome to get in the App Store editorial section! Thanks Kumobius!

Hey Nitromians,

With our HUGE Icebreaker update now submitted to stores and under review. We thought we would share a something AWESOME whilst we wait. That something being ‘Delicious Caviar’ of course...

This has got to be one of the coolest and playful additions to the new Kraken pack yet. Giant caviar (fish eggs) can be found deep within the body of the giant sea beast. They’re pop-able like bubble wrap, stick to almost anything, they can fire from cannons, build bridges, work as safety nets... kinda useful no?

On a further note:

For those of you who missed our announcement on Thursday. The update has been submitted for review on the stores (Play, Amazon and App Store). Just to give you all a rough timeframe, the stores…

Happy Easter

Happy Easter Nitromians,

We hope you have had a blast finding all of the new avatars this week in our Easter “eggvatar” hunt.
We really tried to put them in some devious and tricky places this time around.

Did you like the clue we gave on Friday???
Mwa ha ha (we are so mean)

Also, have any of you managed to find them all?

Don’t worry if you haven’t, as they will still be available to find after the Easter holidays.

See you next week.

Well, we are now going to submit the update to the various app stores for review. Once they have approved the game, we will let you all know an official release date.

Play Killer Corral!

It's Monday which can mean only one thing... It's time for a Pixel Love game.

This week we have chosen to highlight Killer Corral. It looks stunning. This is a simple idea executed very well with a very clean charismatic art style and fluid controls. This all makes for a really enjoyable experience for players.

You are tasked with saving your pigs whilst avoiding the alien onslaught. You can ride the pigs around / push them to safety whilst shooting at the waves of enemy. You plant seeds to grow your ammo, so make sure you sow them into strategic positions, as your ammo can get very scarce at times.

The music speeds up as the time of day progresses.  It really adds to the already frantic, fast moving nature of this game.

Click to Play

Have fun everyone, we'll bring you another Pixel Love next week!
