Corona - Graphics 2.0 demos and articles
Showcasing and sharing our development wotk with the new Graphics 2.o engine in Corona

imagePlayLevel’s Barry Swan has been working with Corona SDK’s Graphics 2.0 engine lately. He has created several inspiring 2.5D demos while alpha testing Graphics 2.0. These include a racing game in the style of Outrun, a free-roaming first-person perspective dungeon game (based on the classic Dungeon Master), and a 3D animated e-book. Watch out for new games based on the new Graphics 2.0 technology when it comes out of beta.

This comes as a part of the Player4life package promoted by Normally a game gives you a fun time and you are looking for special items or a high score. In our game you will do exactly the same but the difference is that you will actually save lives, plant trees and give away sports packages to children in need. This is done through collecting bonuses that are placed in some of the levels in the game.

PlayUs4Life - gambling with real world consequences
Consequence gaming

imageWe have started  work on a project for PlayUs4Life, an online gaming site that intends to combine online gambling and auctions with games that have "direct" real-world consequences based on events actuated in the game. The first game in this project will be "TrickShot 4 Life", that will be ready and availbale for IOS, Android, and in your browser very soon.

Sunset Racer series, Starbase Defender etc.
Due out. 2014

imageHaving a large back catalogue of games and assets is not only a reason to pat one´s own back, but it s also a large collection of resources and assets to dig into and re-use and re-mold.

We intend to release a lot of our older games in new guises during 2014. We especially look forward to getting the Sunset Racer series onto handheld devices and mobiles. These games are still being played millions of times a month by fans, and the possibility of taking what is already a success and remake it on new platforms with new challenges, will surely be a fun undertaking.

Apps not games, and Apps with games.
some out now on IOS and Android, some due out 2013

imageCreating games open up a lot of possibilities and ideas that might not fit directly into a game scenario, but that will easily fit another need where games are not the core. Therefore we have found ourselves creating a few small apps along the way as residue or sidetracks from our game developement. Interestingly enough, these sidetracks have also resulted in games ideas, so it has turned full circle. At the moment we have a Taxi app called FairTaxiFare available in the Colombian appstore. It is a small app that lets you check up on the taxi fare presented to you in Bogota, Colombia. A city with almost 10 million people, and where taxis are known to charge you a little more than is right, this app will save you its cost on you first journey. We have several other apps in the pipelane and we will soon post more information in this regard soon.

Due out in first half of 2014 on IOS and Android..

imageRagnar Rock: Fire & Ice is paving the way for more platforms games based upon our Tile engine, that is proving to be not only extremely versatile, but easy to use for new titles.

More info and screenshots to come soon.

Machine Island
Due out on several platforms...

imageAdventure games have always been a cornerstone in gaming, and throughout the years their guise have changed from pure text flat 2d, isometric and top down, to full fledged 3D with action elements thrown in. Machine Island is a 3rd person 3D adventure that has a great story putting evil against good, with a hero that is caught in between and that needs to find a solution that encompasses both extremes. We cannot divulge too much about this game at the moment as it is all under wraps.

Out now for IOS, and out soon for Android

imageIn Footballer you will hone your skills as a Trickshot champion in a futuristic urban jungle. By judging the strength and angle needed, as well as applying spin to the shot, your goal is to hit the can in all the levels.

Stealing the hammer was all part of Loki´s elaborate scheme to take over the nine worlds, starting with Midgaard. But taking Thor´s hammer might not have been the smartest thing to do, as Thor wants it back, as well as he wants his revenge...
