Quantum Sheep has announced that the latest entry in the Air Supply franchise, Air Supply SOS, will be making its way onto iOS soon.
Within the game, The Time Travel Clothing Company is stealing wool from kidnapped Quantum Sheep, resulting in the Mothersheep sending out an SOS (“Save Our Sheep,” of course) to all heroes. It’ll be your job to be that hero – using your jetpack to dodge dangers and put rescued sheep into your rocket, all the while keeping an eye on your dwindling air supply.
Inspired by Jetpac on the ZX Spectrum, the game features twenty characters to unlock, 100 levels to play, over forty different alien enemies, and over 11 million customization combinations for the look and feel of the game.
No pricing or release date has been announced yet for Air Supply SOS, but the game will have no in-app purchases or adverts and has been confirmed to work on iPhone 4 and up, original iPad and up, and on 5th generation iPod Touch.

Philipp Stollenmayer, maker of the platforming puzzler Sometimes You Die, has just released a major update! The update includes 7 all new levels that are harder than the original story mode, a German translation, and players will have to find a code that unlocks a secret new feature of the game.
To celebrate the update Sometimes You Die will be going on sale on from today (7/3) through Saturday (7/5) for $0.99!
In the version of the game that released last week, an option existed for players to skip levels, allowing them to skip straight to the end and miss out on the story of Thomas and co, as spoken by Danny Wallace. In today’s update, that option has now been removed – meaning players will now have to actually “skillfully play through all of the levels to complete them rather than cheating and skipping to the end.”
You too can discover how alone Thomas really was, as the game is now available for $8.99 for iPad.
