Blimp HD Soaring Onto the iPad

Craneball Studios released Blimp about a year ago. As airship (er, blimp) captain “Zed Pelin,” Blimp tasks you with ferrying passengers, collecting war supplies, and bombing enemy tanks and airships. Most notable, perhaps, were the graphics; Blimp is a gorgeous game with a great steampunk vibe.

One nice thing about that lovely art? It translates splendidly to the iPad’s larger screen. Blimp HD, a reworked version for iPad, isn’t out quite yet, but the enlarged art looks just as great as the iPhone version. Scheduled to be released in August, Blimp HD doesn’t bring many new elements, though certain aspects (enemy blimp movements, radar, menus, etc) have been tweaked to better fit the larger screen.

Though Blimp HD won’t be a reinvention of the original game, Blimp is still great without any additions. The art and music are both great, and who doesn’t enjoy piloting a steampunk-ish blimp? Look for the iPad version in August, and stay tuned via Craneball Studios’ blog. In the meantime, the new screenshots for Blimp HD are available in our gallery below.
