Hi!

1) The level design is studied so the player has to take risks and to learn how the level are designed to maximise the score and avoid the obstacles.

2) You should be able to use all the controllers buttons, triggers too, by mapping them in the Input menu in the first dialog. The version that is out now is natively mapped for the Dual Shock 3 on Mac OSX but you have to map the joypad on a Windows PC. The Xbox 360 joypad is fully supported.

3) Yeah, but the game would have been very different. ;) It's designed to have very strict movement rules so you have to take risks. ;)

Thanks for trying out the game!

Hi hideinlight,
We'll have a tutorial, it's already in the iOS version of the game and we'll have it in the next PC/Mac release.

For the joypad: it's supported, but it's not mapped correctly, you just have to remap the controls in the Input section in the first game launch menu (the one where you sets the resolution).
We'll have the Xbox 360 properly mapped by default in the next release. :)

Yeah, it's hard... :D
However we have an easy mode in the work (it's already in the iOS port of the game).
An Android port is absolutely possible. ;)

Shoot cubes. Avoid obstacles. Shoot more cubes. Flying at very fast speeds on huge colourful spaceships, trying to not crash and to do the highest score possible.
Rinse and repeat. :)

Space bar. You can customize all the controls in the Input tab in the launch screen of the game, where you select the resolutions.

Q to shoot, you can customize the controls from the first dialog, using the input tab :)

Thanks for the bug report, we squashed this bug yesterday but it seems it's not totally resolved yet... :(

Skyrise @ Futuridium EP is finally done!

We have 13 awesome music traks in the game, and you can skip them while playing. ;)

No, the spectral colour separation is just a special effect that we implemented because... it's cool in game! :)

Skyrise @ First gameplay video and new website!

Thank you! :)
We're using every tricks we knows to have those kind of effects even on the first generation iPad. For the game: we hope to offer a very deep experience: it's a full action adventure game like Metroid or Castlevania, not the usual mobile mini game.

Thanks! Our musician and sound effects guru is extremely talented. We'll release a couple of WIP audio tracks soon. The basic idea is to have the soundtrack with a very simple base and the musical sound effects (like the shield sound, or the music notes that plays when you pick up the energy flowers) that compose a sort of interactive sound background. Hope to achieve it! :)
