The release of Icebreaker, NaturalMotion's explosive new ice hockey sim, has been, wait for it...put on ice until next week.
NaturalMotion's previous title Backbreaker Football cut away all of the fluff associated with gridiron to focus purely on the art of tackling.
In doing so, Backbreaker Football picked up a 5/5 from AppSpy and sold 3 million copies.
NaturalMotion will be looking to emulate that success with Icebreaker, where the overriding principle remains roughly the same: race from one end of the rink to the other, evade several opponents, and blast the puck into the unwitting goal.
You can spin and dodge along the icy gauntlet, with more advanced techniques for scoring becoming necessary later on.
Find out if Icebreaker can match its football-based predecessor when it bullies off on 2nd June for $2.99
