The redesign is still slated for February 6th but we've temporarily removed the countdown to promote our new iPhone / iPad game, GroundCats!

JohnnyUtah made a commercial:

The art is by JohnnyUtah, with audio by Stamper and programming by nfk aka Greg. The-Swain also makes a vocal appearance! There are three modes: rescue (inspired by the gameplay in Tremerz), survival (shoot'em-up) and an unlockable time trial mode after you beat rescue.

We hope everyone with an iPhone or iPad checks it out! This is our first official mobile Newgrounds game (PDA Games is a Behemoth release) and if all goes well, we'll keep making more. Sorry for keeping Android users hanging but we have to start somewhere and see where it all goes. Thank you everyone who snags a copy! VOTE 5!

Nice to see you finally were able to release the iphone version of tremerz. Though you lost the rights to release it with the movie characters.

Part of the game is based off that....it's largely a test to see if we could get something fun working on the iphone, and I tossed in some new art and cinematics to spice it up.

If people support it, we have some really great (completely original) ideas for mobile games in the works.

I don't even own an iPhone or iPad, but I'll buy it since it's only $0.99 and it supports you guys. Good luck with promoting it!

I miss the redesign countdown already.

Ah cool, I thought as much, would explain why it wasn't on Android! I've not had experience creating apps in Obj-C, but I have using Air and Unity. They might be a bit more clunky and harder to get working than native apps, but the multi-platform export options (especially in Unity) more than make up for it in my opinion.

Still, awesome app guys, Survivor mode FTW!

There's also a time trial mode and an all new survivor mode. It's worth 69p of anyone's money.

Also, I'm currently top of the game centre leaderboard! Have some of that!
