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.
