SkyDiver Mach II available in the Apple App Store
October 20, 2010
Game Maker creation SkyDiver Mach II is available to purchase in the Apple App Store.
The game, with YoYo Games branding on the loading screen only, is on sale at $0.99. I haven’t personally tested the game but am told it runs fine on iOS 4 and on iOS 3.2 on iPad (problems with the game’s screen resolution have been reported on iPods running older software).
This is the first time a Game Maker game has been officially ported to a mobile device and now the iOS runner is complete we should expect to see portable versions of more of the best Game Maker creations. Kirsty has stated that information on submitting games to “the store” will be released “very soon”.

I sold my soul and posted a review. I want that free ipod. 😛
Well done, YoYo.
While you’re here NAL, do YYG have any plans to release the sales numbers of the game once it’s had some time on the market?
I’ve no idea, sorry.
Please encourage Sandy/whoever to do so, I think the community as a whole would appreciate it immensely.
I’m sure some creators will be willing to share the figures anyway
So . . . are all these games going to stay free for PC download? Apparently Sky Diver still is, at least for now.
Yes, they are.
I’m surprised they didn’t change the HUD font.
Though there’s an artist to replace sprites/graphics as needbe, the game is still fundamentally its creator’s (Chad Chisholm’s), so deliberate design decisions such as its fonts remain.
Looking forward to the instructions on what it takes to get a game made and published.
I really need to get back into using GameMaker. Miss it a lot. Looking forward to seeing more of the great creations off YoYoGames.com on the appstore :).
Epic stuff. If I had any capable Apple branded device I would buy this right now.
