CINCINNATI, OHIO (USA) – February 28, 2013 – Independent game publisher and developer , indiePub Entertainment, Inc. has released Capsized+ for iPad, available now via iTunes for $2.99.

In the sci-fi action platform shooter Capsized+ you play as an intrepid space traveler whose ship has crash landed on a mysterious alien planet.  You must navigate through beautiful but perilous environments while fighting bloodthirsty creatures to save your crewmates and escape with your lives.

Use a grappling hook, jet pack, space-age weapons and powerups to fight through non-linear levels.

indiePub has gone through great pains to recreate – not simply port – the experience from the original while optimizing the controls for touschreens.

Capsized+ includes:

  • Particle Packed Weapons: Sure, the grappling hook is pretty dern useful but you create awesomely explosive destruction with weapons including the Plas-Mortar, Ion Repeater, Nano-Caster and the Quasar Array (and make friggin’ black holes!).
  • Campaign Mode: Test your mettle against nasty baddies in thirteen levels with lush and varied terrains.
  • Three Arcade Modes: Fight endless waves of enemies in Survival Mode, grab oxygen to survive Last Gasp Challenges or test your survival skills in the weapons-free Armless Mode.
  • GameCenter Achievements: Prove your intergalactic survival skills by earning all twelve achievements.
  • Lush Environments:  Enjoy strange and amazing landscapes illustrated in a unique, hand-drawn style.
  • Intense Gameplay: Test your constitution with more than twenty hours of heart-throbbing, thumb-busting action.
Here are few glowing reviews of the original Capsized to get you started:
  • “A modern original with a nearly pitch-perfect blend of combat and exploration that is as beautiful as it is exhilarating.” – GameShark
  • “[M]ore fun, charm and entertainment than a game ten times its size.” - IGN
  • “Eye-catching.” – GameSpot
  • “A progressive return to gaming’s adventuring roots.” – Edge Magazine
Capsized+ is available for iPad (US $2.99). Capsized is currently being developed for Android devices and will also be released for Mac, PlayStation Network and Xbox Live later this year (2013).

Review codes are available upon request for reviewing media.
