iPhone status

It's been a while since I've last posted.. but Critical Altitude for the iPhone is on its way soon!  I'm currently waiting for registration approval from the iPhone Developer Program... and the ability to test on a real device without hacking XCode.  Here's a recent screenshot from the iPhone

The performance on a real iPhone device is nearly double what I've found on the BlackBerry Storm 2 and HTC Dream/G1!

Gameplay update

The game is somewhat playable now, but probably a little too easy. A rough plane texture was added, a 'bump mapped' ground texture, and the view has changed a bit now too.

Menu Screen

Rough draft of a menu screen, and a potential name - "Critical Altitude". I'd like to have some animation on it though..
