Redford’s Back With a Bang!
It’s boomtime! Redford is back in Mega Blast – a block-breaking, coin-grabbing, bomb-throwing slice of monstrous mayhem! Redford and his friends spring to life in glorious 3D for the first time!
We’re very proud to announce Mega Blast, our first 3D game, and our first game to use the amazing Unreal Engine 4. Mega Blast features intuitive tap and swipe controls, madcap action, incredible effects and great performance across a range of devices.
We’ve had an absolute blast (pun very much intended) using Unreal Engine 4 so far. What started out as a test of this new engine has become something much richer and more rewarding than we could have imagined, in the form of Mega Blast.
Even though UE4 is a cutting-edge engine, used on AAA console and PC games, it also gives us the ability to optimize for lower-end mobile devices; we’re getting a solid 30fps even on the venerable iPhone 4S, with more optimization still to come. Devices that are metal-capable on the other hand will take full advantage of the engine with console-quality effects and performance, and the game looks amazing on the large screens of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. It’s really a game-changer.
An Epic Surprise
We are also very grateful (and surprised!) to accept a generous dev grant from Epic to help us complete the game and give it the final polish that it deserves. So a huge thank you to Epic! You can find out more about Epic’s awesome Unreal Dev Grant program on their site.
Here are some screenshots from Mega Blast, which is getting closer to Beta every day!

[Storm Casters'] fast pace is what makes this game so compelling
★★★★ – Touch Arcade
Storm Casters brings the thunder and then some.
8/10 – Arcade Sushi
The visuals are fantastic, the controls are simple and responsive, the gameplay is challenging, and the battle cards add a fresh new twist to the dungeon crawler genre.
The game does a great job of keeping you constantly engaged, and coming back.
★★★★ – Apple ‘N’ Apps
Enough Rogue-Like mechanics and a measure of “Wayward Souls”, “Torchlight” ,Half-Minute-Hero”, “Zelda” and “Hearthstone” feel mixed in makes this game a worthwhile and incredibly fun timewaster.
- Gold Seal of Approval – Pocket Tactics
The response from players has been fantastic as well, and we can’t wait to see where we can take Storm Casters next!
The tempest continues as Touch Arcade picked Storm Casters as their game of the Week!
I highly recommend checking out Storm Casters if you’re interested in a nice twist on the tried and true dungeon crawler formula.”
