Sky-Punks-Coming-Soon

Formerly known as Sky Pirates of Neo Terra, the Sky Punks are the next game to be released by Rovio’s publishing arm, Rovio Stars.  Developed by Fathom Interactive, the game is an endless runner type, filled with unique characters, equipment and environments.

Sky Punks is currently in soft launch. At the time of writing it’s available for iOS in Canada, Australia, Philippines and Indonesia. Sky Punks should be release more broadly soon, including Android and Kindle Fire.  Here’s the official description of the game:

Sky Punks is an unlimited adventure starring a motley cast of characters. Reveal their stories as you collect them all. Use the coins and Crystals you find to unlock new GlideWings and abilities as you explore the exotic world of Neo Terra!

—–

– DASH endlessly across mysterious and unpredictable lands.
– UNLOCK new characters from a diverse Sky Punks cast.
– WEAR a playful set of costumes – even dress up as an Angry Bird!
– UPGRADE and unlock GlideWings, each one with different stats.
– POWER-UP and use boosts to get more coins and dash even faster!
– EARN achievements and complete tough challenges!

An announcement on Fathom’s site added the following, indicating this will be an entire franchise of games:

We’ve kept it secret for long enough, so today, we’re thrilled to finally unveil our latest and greatest: Sky Punks! More than just a name, this new IP is the evolution of the popular comic and video game franchise formerly known as Sky Pirates of Neo Terra.

Built on the solid foundation laid down by the original franchise, Sky Punks improves upon the world, lore, technology, and characters that its over 1.5 Million Facebook fans have come to know and love. The new Sky Punks offers a more playful cast of characters, more engaging stories, and even more daring escapades across the expanding world of Neo Terra.

What exactly do we have in store for this new franchise? The answer is something much bigger than anything we’ve done so far here at Fathom, and it starts with a brand new adventure right on your mobile devices!

They also recently included some behind-the-scenes concept art of the game’s world, Neo Terra.

What do you think, fellow flingers?  Will you be entering the world of Neo Terra or are you sticking to the Angry Bird franchise?  Did you play the previous incarnation, “Sky Pirates of Neo Terra?” If so, are you excited for this new iteration?  Share your thoughts and opinions in the comments below.

Awesome Sky Punks! I played the facebook game, read the comics, and have been playing it in soft launch in Canada. Love the Angry Birds costumes available for your characters. Great art style, challenging and fun. I love Plunder Pirates too, good stuff from Rovio Stars, keep it coming!

I have played this game as it is available in Canada now. Very fun, amazing art, colour, music – tons of maps and customization. Hours and hours of entertainment. Been playing 10 hours and still impressed.

That’s exciting @Gian! Good to see other countries get an opportunity to test out this new game, too so have fun with it!

Unfortunately, it is not compatible with my iPod 4th gen 6.1.6. Oh well, have to wait for the official Android release then. :(

By Sean Megaw

Sorry about that – the ipod 4 is just a bit to slow for such a graphic intensive game. Android is being wrapped up soon so keep checking back for news.
