Retro Arcade Game Made in a Day

If you thought Flappy Bird was hard, you gotta try this app. It is hard, retro, hard, simple and super hard. Lasting 10 seconds pretty much means you are a gaming god. Tell you what. Get over 1,000 points and the entire internet will bow down before you claiming you are the ultimate gaming god of the universe.


Hurl down a wormhole in an 8-bit spaceship… that has a proven track record of exploding… in this retro arcade runner (technically speaking, a space-time continuum flyer). Your only goal is to survive as long as possible. The longer you last, the faster you go, and the higher your score climbs.

Simple, right? HA!

Survive breakneck turns as you dash through geometric wormholes that will shatter your spaceship — and hopes of a high score.

Luckily for you, you have infinite lives (and, apparently, an amazing mechanic), so you can replay the game without hesitation or remorse for the rocket you just destroyed seven seconds earlier.


  • Amazing 8-bit graphics
  • Classic arcade soundtrack
  • Simple yet skillful tap button controls
  • Original gold coin collecting system (no one’s ever done that before, right?)
  • Colorful and vivid 3D geometry cubes that change color like WOAH
  • Infinite lives! You don’t even need to be a cat (wait, what?)
  • Unlock new rockets and spaceships featuring state of the art pixel art
  • Totally free! But we make you watch an ad every once in awhile, ‘cuz, you know, someone has to pay your spaceship mechanic bill…

This ridiculously hard twitch game was created as an overnight project by Rolith and the CRIT Team at Artix Entertainment. May you enjoy countless hours of frustratingly, addictively-beautiful space-travel with VelocityAE!

Share Your High Scores!

If you think you can beat my high score, or Cysero's, or Rolith's - show us!  VelocityAE is up on the iTunes App Store and Google Play store right now.

Please show Rolith and his hard work some love by giving VelocityAE 5-stars and help us spread the word, then tweet screenshots of your runs to RolithArtixKorin, or Cysero!

Rolith's Surprise Mobile Game Release: The Story

If you’re a long-time player of Artix games, then you probably recognize this fellow.That’s Rolith, our resident code monkey. He’s been Artix’s longest coder, cracking away at DragonFable in 2006, and has dabbled in just about every Artix game ever since.

But, man, Rolith LOVES his job. When he’s not typing code at breakneck speeds here at the Secret Underground Lab, he’s at home writing even more ridiculous code “for funsies” (Rolith’s words exactly). I bet his dreams are in C#.

So it should come to no surprise that Rolith decided to make a game in his spare time... because, funsies. So one night, Rolith started building something he was really passionate about (retro arcade runners), and 24 hours later… VelocityAE was born.

But before anyone could ask him why, Rolith quickly pulled aside Cysero and Korin, asking for their help to build some assets for his overnight game. Cysero whipped up the 8-bit artwork for the spaceships and Korin was on 3D mesh duty.

“Have you told Artix about your game, Rolith?” Cysero asked. “Um, No...” whispered Rolith, “Don’t tell Artix about Velocity yet. 

Finally Rolith approached Artix and said, “I know you got a ton of games coming out this summer, but what would you say if I had one ready to go…. right now?”

A skeptically-curious Artix was given Rolith’s iPhone and he started playing. He died 3 seconds later. “Hard. Retro. ...and SUPER HARD!” exclaimed Artix as he spent the next 17 minutes replaying the game over and over again, trying to beat his high score. He didn’t last longer than 10 seconds. “I love this! How long until we can release it for the players”

Rolith smirked. Artix went o_O, leaned in and asked, “Did you, uh… already submit it?” Rolith was taken aback. “Should I have waited?” “No, no…. this is great!” Artix reaffirmed. “At least you did not use your spare time to making another game about Ponies! Let it go live secretly, we can make fixes and then tell the whole world about this!"

A Little Bit of This and That

BladeHaven Beta Release

The Beta release for BladeHaven is scheduled to begin on Thursday!!!  The Beta will use the ONE LOGIN TO RULE THEM ALL and will be open to Star Captains, Guardians, DragonLords, AQWorlds Members and Epic Duel Elite Players (those who upgraded before the merger with Artix Entertainment) and ED players that have upgraded after the merger (is there a formal name for you yet?) !  So if you haven't made your Master Account yet, now's a great time to do that!

Bladehaven is a first-person swordfighting game which is unique and (in my opinion) highly addictive. It features achievements that will earn your Master Account some of that valuable EXP - you know you want some!

A Bladehaven info page is coming tomorrow to let all types of players know whether you'll be able to test.  So, check it out to see whether you meet the requirements for the testing phase, and have fun!! 

That's Mister Korin now...

Korin's amazing (and very fun) wife said "I do" over the weekend. There's a thread on the MechQuest General Discussion forum here if you'd like to participate in the celebratory well-wishing!

Rolith Levels Up!

Dragonfable's Design Notes for 10/11 is the place to wish Rolith a Happy Birthday on the Forums (right now this is the active thread ) and also you may use Twitter ( @Rolith_AE ) Let him know that you saw it on MQ's Design Notes! While he is the lead coder for DF, Rolith spares some time to do a bit for MechQuest when he can - so please let him know how much his MQ players appreciate him.

Dropship Update!

Vivi has made more progress with the weapons I hinted at the other day - I can reveal that the shops on the Dropship are going to give new players some incentive to begin expanding inventory.  More variety in attack abilities earlier in the game is sure to enhance the battle experience.
