I made this game again with my buddy Sprite Attack. We used a lightweight library that Mollusk made called Migal to develop it in C++ and it magically did something to output a XCode project.
With an intro from Mollusk and Sprite Attack, I was able to get a publishing deal through click gamer. Click gamer was an offshoot of Chillingo but had some big success with a stick fighter game and the first Angry Birds game.
Note: this game is no longer available on the app store.
