Total Recoil explodes onto the PsVita!

Time to bring your ‘A’-game, soldier!

We’re very proud to announce that the explosive shoot-em-up Total Recoil that has been downloaded around a million times from the App Store and Google play store and has an average user review score of 4.9/5 is coming to the PSVita™

This is the best version yet! Developing on the PSVita™ has given us even more control than mobile and tablet games – we’ve made great use of the PSVita’s™ controls. You use the left stick to move, the right stick to shoot and strafe. When you fire a missile you can trace it’s path around the screen using the rear touch pad, then pilot your killstreak air attack using the front touch screen.

Remember there are only two rules in Total Recoil.....

Rule one: Shoot everything that moves!

Rule two: Shoot everything that doesn’t!

Happy New Year

2012 was a very busy year for Eiconic, we worked on 3 released games last year. The first was PulzAR, part of Sony's AR Suite for the PS Vita. We then partnered with Sony again to release a sequel to our Arctic Adventures Minis game on their new PlayStation Mobile platform titled Brain Freeze. Finally at the end of the year we released our first iOS title Total Recoil.

There's lots to look forward to in 2013, we're currently working on updates to Total Recoil and we'll soon be releasing the game on Android devices and another platform that we will be announcing shortly, so stay tuned!
