Mega Jump

We are thrilled to announce that Mega Jump is now available for the iPhone and iPod Touch!

Mega Jump is what happens when you take a jump game and pump it full of gorgeous graphics, potent powerups and abundant arcade action. The goal of the game is to jump, leap, vault, boost and rocket to the greatest heights imaginable. You’ll guide an adorable little monster on an adventure from a jungle, through tree-tops, above mountains, past the horizon, into outer space and then who knows where!

Are you tired of doodling around? Then get Mega Jump now and start an epic journey!

Get Set’s Newest Game: Mega Jump

Apr 30, 2010   //   by Matt Coombe   //   Announcements  //  3 Comments

We’re happy to announce that Get Set Games has submitted its latest game to Apple for approval! The game is titled Mega Jump and features a little monster character you may recognize.

Mega Jump is an Action/Arcade jumping game where the goal is to climb as high as possible through beautiful multilayered, hand painted backdrops while collecting as many coins, power ups, boosts, combos and loot pickups as possible. While Doodle Jump is an obvious inspiration, we’ve pushed the graphics and arcade action as far as we could to make the game incredibly fast paced and explosive.

Our tiny protagonist will be battling his way from the placid mossy earth of the forest floor through the treetops, ruins, sunlit clouds, and up to the moon and galaxy beyond!

Get Set Games Sponsors TOJam

Apr 22, 2010   //   by Derek van Vliet   //   Announcements  //  No Comments

We’re thrilled to announce that Get Set Games is going to be a sponsor of this year’s TOJam. For the uninitiated, TOJam is an annual game development jam that takes place in Toronto, Canada. Hundreds of game developers come from all over the place to tackle an ambitious goal: make a game in a weekend.

Get Set Games historians will tell you that we started this company after participating in numerous game dev jams together. We have participated in all 4 TOJams to date. And one of our developers, Rob Segal, is an organizer for TOJam. So it means a lot to us to be able to be able to sponsor this year’s event.

The event starts tomorrow, April 23 and runs until Sunday, April 25. Registration is completely full. We will be there all weekend working on a completely awesome new game for the iPhone/iPad. There are sure to be many good times.

Hope to see you there!

Poptweets HD

Poptweets HD

Speaking of addictive, Poptweets HD is a trivia game focused on celebrities with a twist: all of the questions are tweets from the Twitter accounts of the celebrities themselves. Poptweets HD shows you a tweet and it’s up to you to guess which celebrity said it. The constant stream of tweets from Twitter provides a trivia experience that is always fresh.

Poptweets HD also features deep integration with Twitter, so if you see a celeb you want to follow, you can do so from right within the game. If you see a tweet you like, you can retweet it or fav’ it from within the game.

Poptweets HD is available for Free.
