Nashville-based indie dev IV Studio is pleased to announce that its high-intensity arcade game, Bouncy Smash, will make its debut exclusively on iOS in Q1 2018 🙂

Bounce and smash your way to the top in this colorful, addictive romp inspired by retro classics Super Mario Bros. and Donkey Kong – and modern fare such as Downwell, Alto’s Adventure, and Monument Valley.

Story & Gameplay
It’s 2019. The Tyller Corporation has developed synthetic beings they call “duplicants.” (Obviously, the duplicants revolt – or we wouldn’t have a story!) Special squads known as “smashers” were ordered to eliminate all duplicants. You are a smasher known as Arlo.

Featuring four rewarding skills, an endless mode, weekly/daily challenges, and barely disguised roguelike tendencies, Bouncy Smash hits the sweet spot between old and new – delivering an accessible yet hardcore mobile experience unlike anything else on iOS.

The perfect bounce: Split-second timing and pinpoint-accurate downward movement that crush wave after wave of evil bounce-lings. Going for broke? Augment your attack effectiveness with four powerful smashing abilities to take them all out in one blow. If you finish a wave, you earn the option to choose a valuable perk – such as a 20% higher bounce bonus – to increase your chances of survival.

Customize Arlo with bunny ears, a glorious king’s helmet, a swanky top hat, and more to become a hardened, fashion-conscious smasher. Deftly avoid bouncing attacks and spikes to remain in one piece, and stay on the lookout for 75 unlockables hidden in plain sight. Bounce your heart out and make short work of those duplicants in this smashing take on arcade gaming!

Available on iOS during Q1 2018, Bouncy Smash has been featured in a number of outlets – including Gamasutra, Flickering Myth, Gaming Cypher, and
