EDIT: Apple Jack 2 is OUT NOW! Grab it for a measly 80 MSP!
Apple Jack 2 is coming to XBLIG sometime within the next few weeks. It is currently in its final stages of playtesting. Tim (the creator) has released a trailer for this insane action puzzle platformer. Check it out:
Borrowing the throwing mechanic from Super Mario 2 and adding in an awesome combo system make this game one of the most unique platformers I have ever played.
I have been anticipating this release for many months ever since it was announced. Have any other CAGs been awaiting this release? I would love to hear your thoughts and opinions on the trailer as well as the first game.
I inquired My Owl regarding the launch price... He was initially planning on releasing @ $3 (240 MSP) but I think after all the articles on 80 point games selling a lot better on XBLIG he is going to launch at $1 (80 MSP). We will see... It is a great value at either of those price points.
If you missed out on the first game, Apple Jack... do yourself a favor and at least give the demo a shot. Throwing enemies and stringing together combos could not be more fun ! Currently available on XBLIG for 80 MSP. Link: http://marketplace.x...15-d80258550530

I know there is a lot of junk on XBLIG, but there are also quite a few diamonds in the rough. If you haven't given XBLIG a shot, this game would be a great introduction.
I will update when a release date and/or price is finalized.
Update via Twitter: The game is completely finished and was submitted for peer review. But a last minute change to level 2 left a hidden bug and it had to get pulled from peer review to be fixed. As per MS rules, once a game is pulled or fails peer review, you must wait a week to resubmit. That was on 5/2/12. It should be coming out soon.
