    Hey guys, just letting everyone know that the first game I've ever written is now available on iTunes! Here's a little bit about the game:

    Canyon Dash is a fast paced action game focusing on the player getting a high score by surviving as long as possible.

    Using tilt controls the player must steer a minecart through a never ending maze of track while avoiding dead ends and
    deadly rock piles that have blocked the path. Along the way, gold and gem pickups can be collected to boost the players' score while
    a dynamite pickup can be used to blast your way through rock piles that are in the way; clearing the track for safe travel.

    More information can be found at my website.

    I really hope people enjoy it!

    Nice artwork! What did you use to develop the game? The game looks like a good time killer, are the stages randomized?

    Hey, thanks! :)

    The track you run through is made up of little predefined sections that are placed in a random order as you go along. My original intention was to have full procedurally generated track so that it would be completely random, but decided I could get more interesting variation by designing the sections myself. Which meant coding up a level editor, but I think it was worth it in the long run.
