Backbreaker Sequel Headed To iPhone Soon

Illustration for article titled Backbreaker Sequel Headed To iPhone Soon

Backbreaker's iPhone version - a port of the popular "Tackle Alley" minigame from the console title - flips the script in a sequel that tasks players with stopping the computer runner. New moves and "super showboating" will also be featured.


NaturalMotion Games announced Backbreaker 2: Vengeance (and also Jenga) today. Vengeance mode puts you on defense; Tackle Alley is still a part of the game, and players can avail themselves of new jumping and trucking moves, plus "super showboat." "You can really rub your opponents' noses in it with new multi-touch super showboat," says a statement. "You'll bag more points, but your player will move even slower."

Tackle Alley gets more waves, plus new on-field obstacles. The game will also get a graphics update to take advantage of the iPhone 4's Retina display. A specific release date was not given, but the statement said both it and Jenga will be out this holiday season.

Tackle alley is fun. More tackle alley is more fun. I'm good with this.

Not sure it needed to be a separate application though. This seems like update material.
