In Jay & Silent Bob in Let Us Dance, it's breakdance party time with two of New Jersey's favorite residents. Jay's got the moves, and Silent Bob brought his classic boom box full of funky tunes. It's up to you to keep the rhythm and help Jay prove to the rest of Jersey that he's King of breakers. Let Us Dance is a match-based rhythm game, challenging players to match colored-button presses to the beat of the music in an effort to prolong Jay's acrobatic dance moves. The game comes with three unique styles of music, and provides addictive gameplay like only the View Askewniverse can. Jay & Silent Bob in Let Us Dance is now available on the iTunes App Store for free.

"Ice Cap's mission is to produce high quality, premium titles for mobile and web platforms. We're excited to partner with SMarcade and help bring the popular characters Jay & Silent Bob to the mobile gaming market," said CEO Steve Felter. "These games are fun, beautifully crafted, and feel like a natural extension of the characters into a new medium."
SMarcade is a division of SModCo, a multi-platform production company that creates television, film, games, online-radio and digital content, all based around talk. Chatter. Lip-flap. The last one only sounds dirty.
"Now, I can finally play with myself and not get bad looks for it!" says Kevin Smith. "Thanks to SMarcade's Ken Plume, Ice Cap, Powerhouse and Game Team One, I'm no longer Too Fat To Fly."
Let Us Dance and Too Fat to Fly were built using GameSalad Creator, the popular game creation platform that enables developers to publish games to iOS, Android and HTML5. Both games are available now in the iTunes App Store. Let Us Dance is available for free while Too Fat to Fly is currently priced at $0.99.
