Description

Ironshod is a Small (2 part timers) Mobile studio situated in Beautiful Hamilton, New Zealand.

History

Founding

Ironshod was founded back in 2009, Dave had been doing PSP Homebrew, including the Messenger client AFKIM and the Tower Defence game Defence Station Portable. The iPhone had been released and the App Store announced, it was time to move to a new platform and push up the quality bar. Jacob made up the other half of the team and Ironshod was formed, dedicated to making great iPhone games (at this stage it was the only mobile platform.)

Defence Station Touchable

To get antiquated with iOS development, Dave bought across the award winning Defence Station Portable to iPhone and renamed it Defence Station Touchable, after getting our feet wet, it was time to make something unique for touch.

Reverse Maze

Inspired by the flash game of the same name, Reverse Maze was an early 2010 App Store favorite for those that found it. Controls only made possible on Touch devices and a beautiful art style made this an engaging action puzzler.

Since Then

The years since Reverse Maze was released have been anything but a break. Ironshod have been hard at work on their latest mobile title, putting in everything they've read, watched or been told to make Simpulls everything it can be.
