During episode #9 of the TouchArcade podcast, Kepa Auwae of Rocketcat Games let us in on some details regarding the successor to Hook Champ [App Store], a game currently dubbed Avalanche Game. This morning MTV Multiplayer posted some new tidbits, including a image comparing the art style of the two games and the evolution from “8-bit” to “16-bit” graphics:
As we discussed during our podcast, Avalanche Game is going to be a randomly generated never-ending game, building on the fun the developers had with Canabalt. Gameplay is said to remain similar to Hook Champ with new abilities to master and items to collect along the way. We loved Hook Champ, and needless to say, are going to be closely following the development of Avalanche Game.
