Young Leukemia patient granted wish to make iPhone game

A nine year old boy has developed his own iPhone game and it is now available in the App Store. Owain Weinert has pre-B Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia and one of his wishes was to develop his own iPhone game. He asked the Make-a-Wish foundation, who did what they do best and made his dream a reality.

The game he developed with 4th & Battery is called Allied Star Police. It was released yesterday and already has a few 5 star ratings. You take command of the Allied Star Police and it is your responsibility to blast your enemies in the side scrolling all action shooter!

“My brother can’t stop playing it, my dad can’t stop playing it, and neither can I,” Owain said. “This started off as a dream of mine and now my friends and people all over the world can play my creation.”

It is a free game and a universal binary too; so works with the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Give it a try and show your support for this very talented young boy!
