    Flapcraft is a gorgeously drawn one-off game from the developers of Pixelmator. In it, users control a "Flapcrafter" -- a Viking who, in the absence of any wars to fight, tries to fly by standing on a log (and upgrading it with wings, rockets and other improbable things).

    The developers note that they aren't getting into the game business -- on the contrary, they made Flapcraft as a way of beta-testing the version 2.0 of Pixelmator, the image editing software.

    The game is a little short, but the artwork is phenomenal and the gameplay is quite challenging.

    Flapcraft is a universal app, for both iPhone and iPad, and is $1.99 on the App Store. [iTunes]

    It's a Wacom Intuos3, which is an older version of the Wacom Intuos4. Wacom tablets are the go-to standard for graphics professionals.

    Decided to buy, it, sure enough completed it in no time but it was great fun. Hope they’ll continue with it, but I won’t be bummed if they don’t.

    Awesome, the art is fantastic. I will buy it just because it is made by Pixelmator team!
