Remember the classic helicopter game? We do too. We have taken the basic concept of this simple game and upgraded it to the next level. Or to the 10th level. Super Jet World is the realization of this idea.

Super Jet World is simple, fast paced and challenging. We are retro gamers at heart and miss the easy to play, hard to master games of the 8- and 16-bit eras. We think the competitive spirit among brothers and friends that induces rage, controller throwing and division among family members is lost in most games today. Help us bring that back.

Super Jet World is nearly complete on mobile. We are releasing on IOS and Android on November 9th for free and would love your support. We hate most mobile games. The great majority of them have awful controls, are mindless clicking or they are just boring to play. These games are nothing like the addicting, challenging yet fair games that we grew up with. We developed Super Jet World for mobile with the emphasis on gameplay first. Precise controls are necessary in a fast paced game and we have nailed this aspect. We think the simple one touch to move control of Super Jet World, challenging difficulty and varied environments makes for a perfect mobile game. Check it out on November 9th 

This kickstarter is for a PC release. There is much we can do on PC that is simply not possible on mobile. We know the PC community is full of gamers like us who love hard but always fair simple games. Super Jet World is a perfect fit for the platform. 

The gameplay of Super Jet World is very simple. Just like the helicopter game, the player holds one button to keep the plane in flight and releases it to let the plane descend. What we have perfected is the fluidity of this control. It is extremely precise, smooth and fun to play. It takes an old concept and expands on it with new gameplay elements across varying level designs.

There are three gameplay modes

This is the main adventure. Fly across seven diverse levels with varying obstacles and flight patterns. Some of the levels include monster infested ice caverns, active volcanoes and asteroid belts in space. Three lives are allotted per turn. After the last level is cleared, the first level immediately resumes but at a faster speed. The classic Playstation racing game Wipeout has a mode called zone where the player does not control the speed of the ship. The speed gradually increases to a psychotic rate as each section of the track is cleared and the player must maneuver accordingly. We have evolved this concept and taken it to the skies.

In this mode, the zone concept is applied on a level by level basis. Every 25 seconds pilot must dodge faster enemies, more obstacles and narrowing levels. There is a time survival goal in each stage that must be reached to unlock the next level.

We are no strangers to taking screenshots of our fastest times (maybe even photoshopping them once in a while) and sending them to our friends to attempt to best. This was the idea behind challenge mode. Before starting a game, players can challenge one another. A pilot then has one life to navigate through all levels facing varying obstacles and speed increases. After losing the one life, the time is recorded and a notification is sent to the challenged player. The challenged player then has one life to survive longer than the challenger did. This mode has been a huge success in internal testing. It is extremely addicting and is where the competitive spirit thrives.

There are several powerups that each pilot can equip before each flight. Turbo allows the player to boost through challenging straights. Shield offers temporary protection from incoming enemies and obstacles. Quick repair grants one extra life after a crash.  

When designing the powerups we wanted to make sure they were useful, fun and fair. Powerups are limited to one use per level cycle. This ensures focus remains on mobile mastery of the core gameplay with the powerups providing a temporary edge.

 All features above will be delivered in the IOS and Android releases on November 9th. The PC version will expand on this in many ways:  

- High Resolution Graphics- Have a 4k monitor? We will support it. Have a multi monitor setup? We will optimize for it  

- Finer Controls- We have spent thousands of hours getting the control right on mobile and it plays awesome. But when you reach speed level 8, nothing can beat the response time of a mouse/keyboard. We will support gamepads as well  

- Mod Support- Graphical mods and gameplay mods introducing new mechanics will be supported. Want to fly Captain Watts in a submarine through a tornado? Join the community and create it  

- Optimized levels- All levels will be optimized for PC. Level design, speed and enemy patterns and difficulty will be tweaked. A stretch goal is create 2 additional levels which will be announced as the goal target approaches  

- Customizable Jets- Jets are customizable in the mobile release but the PC version will include a full editor that allows the player to design their own helmets, goggles, ship color, flags, decals and many other customizations to mock other pilots in the sky.  

- New Jets- A second stretch goal is 2 new jets with unique speed, handling and special abilities.

We need capital to make the PC release happen. Development for the mobile release has exceeded our budget by a multiple. We have no interest in working with a publisher on this game and losing creative control. We also do not want to lose any equity in our game by partnering with an investor. We see great potential in Super Jet World. As PC gamers first and foremost, we would love to bring an optimized release to our favorite platform.

Your support is really appreciated. Sharing and liking and retweeting brings us great joy!

Risks and challenges

Elevated Vision was founded in early 2014. We are a new company and creating a video game is very expensive. We do not want to release a simple port that does not leverage the strengths of the PC platform. Too many console releases have disappointed us like this. We will slave endlessly to optimize Super Jet World for the PC. The main risk we face is that development takes longer than anticipated and that we require more capital to finish the release. If we hit our initial funding goal, we think the requirement for more capital is very unlikely.

Super Jet World will be game changing when it releases this November on mobile. It is our dream to bring this to the PC and we have the talent and passion to deliver.
