Description

Slamjet Stadium is the upcoming iPad game from indie developer Alistair Aitcheson, creator of the Greedy Bankers games for iOS. Challenge your friends to crazy futuristic matches! Charge your hoverbike and slam the ball into the goal! Steal your friends' players and fling them into traps!

The rules of the game are simple, and the rules of social conduct are there to be broken. You can grab your opponent's players as well as your own, push them out of the way, or grab a teammate and play two-against-one. Wormholes, moving goals, ridiculous powerups and deadly traps give you more incentive to play dirty!

Also featured is a single-player mode, where you can take on a gauntlet of A.I. challengers to prove yourself as the galaxy's mightiest player!

Many thanks to the hugely talented Tom Parfitt, who composed the music for the trailer and is creating music and audio for the game.

Slamjet Stadium will be available for iPad from March 14th

About the developer

25-year old Alistair Aitcheson runs a one-man games studio in Wiltshire, UK. In 2011 he released his studio's debut title, Greedy Bankers, followed by an iPad-exclusive sequel Greedy Bankers vs The World.

Greedy Banker vs The World was noted for its frantic shared-device multiplayer which encouraged players to cheat and steal from each other, and was a finalist in Eurogamer's Indie Games Arcade, as well as Tap! Magazine's game of the week.

As well as programming the games and running his business, Alistair Aitcheson does all his own artwork, and wants to bring his unique and identifiable art style to his work. He has a great passion for bending the rules and creating laughter through his games.

Before starting his indie business, Alistair was a hobbyist game developer for ten years, starting his studio after graduating from University of Warwick with a 1st class Master's degree in Mathematics.

In 2011 he was awarded a place in Develop magazine's 30 Under 30
