Rookie Rocket by Fabian Heuwieser

Fabian Heuwieser has brought us some excellent and essential apps over the past few years. He has now ventured into the game genre, and his first release is called RookieRocket. In this game you have to steer a rocket through obstacles and collect stars. When you touch an obstacle, it pushes you down unless you can pass it. By collecting the normal stars, the speed does not increase, if you miss a normal star, the speed increases. When you get too fast, collect slow-down stars. And then there are tricky little stars that flip left-right, so when you move left your rocket goes right! The stars also give you points when you collect them. Check out the video of Rookie Rocket in action after the break.

Both touch screen and non-touch screen devices are supported, and when playing on your Torch or Storm you can use the touch screen to move your rocket. Within the game you have settings for slow or fast and to invite a friend to challenge your score. Statistics are also available such as total time spent playing and high score. Rookie Rocket is fun for kids and adults alike, and will surely be on your list of most played games. You can pick this game up for just $.99 in the CrackBerry store or in BlackBerry App World for your 8330/50i, 85xx, 89xx, 9000, 91xx, 93xx, 95xx, 96xx, 97xx, and 9800. Fabian is also working on a version for the BlackBerry PlayBook, so if you'd like to be kept up to date future developments be sure to go check out Rookie Rocket on Facebook.

Rookie Rocket for BlackBerry by Fabian Heuwieser now available!


it's s cute game but, these upcoming blackberry devices and os 6.1 should have been released last fall!

I have decided if the iPhone 5 comes out before any new blackberry, goodbye Research In slowMotion!

BBM and and hangman can only entertain consumers for so long...

In defense of the reversing star, it is the highest scoring star, so it's good for catching IF you want to go for a high score, just make sure to quickly catch another star, which will then switch your controls back to normal. ANY other star switches your controls back to normal.

During testing Fabian would keep sending me challenges with these obsenely high scores so I HAD to do everything I could to score points to beat him.  Then as soon as I would best his score he would send a higher one.  :(

 That challenge feature was actually quite fun.  And *I* was the one who suggested the message field so you could include little shout out messages with the challenge.   Maybe now with the Facebook page and all we can get a leaderboard started.

 Can't WAIT to see the PB version that's in the works!
