Sloth Climb ascends on Mobile

URL links to webpage for Sloth Climb game. Image features a jungle scene, with dirt floor edged by trees and foliage. On the left, a jungle cat sits on its hing legs leaning back. In front of it sits a large plate of fruits. Behind the fruit sits a sloth, facing forward, it's arms stretched towards the food.  On the top right, a toucan sits on a branch with wings outstretched.

Escape the urban jungle with a simple tap of the button in Sloth Climb, the latest from local studio Zloph. Featuring an adorable Sloth in need of assistance, it’s a surprisingly quick game considering the speed of its endangered protagonist.

A little sloth was doing his business on the ground one day but all of a sudden, a growl from an approaching carnivore was heard. Now with your power of the ‘TAP’ you will help the young sloth climb. The little sloth must continually climb while avoiding the mindless birds that get in its way and might as well collect a few stars and fruit that the sloth passes by, can never have too many stars and fruit in one’s journey.  Climb to new heights to avoid the pursuit of the very hungry beast and reclaim the iron throne of the biggest scores among all the sloths.

Sloth Climb is available with a free Android version, free iOS version, and Pro (paid, add-free) versions on Android, and Windows phone. See below for a look at the gameplay, or you can check out the main website for more info.

Animation of Sloth Climb gameplay. A jungle scene, with a sloth hanging on a tree trunk at the left. An arrow rotates above it showing which direction it will jump. Tapping the screen makes the sloth jumps to the right tree, and the arrow appears again. As the sloth jumps back and forth climbing higher up the trees, it collects stars and points. A miss-timed jump has the sloth go too high and miss the tree, it falls and the animation restarts.

New Release: CAKIE Free on Mobile

Cakie Banner (by Zloph)

As kids, we thought adulthood was all about doing what you want. Parents telling you to eat your vegetables? Oh yeah, well when I grow up I’m going to eat ice-cream for dinner and cake for breakfast. Ha! Yet alas, as adults we often find ourselves rushing around from responsibility to responsibility. So now, more than ever, it is important that we not forget the little pleasures in life.

Lucky for us Cakie, the debut game by local developer Zlop, is all about seizing the moment and living the dream that little-you had… by eating as much cake as humanly possible.

Rokjaw jr. is craving cake and he cannot wait for dinner, no longer. While behind Granny Rokjaw’s back, Rokjaw plans to get his fill of the Cake. Get as much cake into Rokjaw jr before Granny Rokjaw turns around and brings in the punishment.

GrannyRockJaw_CakieCakie is available right now for free on AndroidiOS and Windows Phone. So if you’re craving a quick sugar rush, why not give your dear old Granny Lockjaw a visit over on the official website.

Star Hammer Tactics on PS3 and PSP

Last month we reported that Star Hammer Tactics had been released on the Xbox Live Marketplace, and we lamented the lack of availability here in Australia.

We are happy to hear that Black Lab Games‘ futurist turn-based strategy game is now available in Australia for Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable via the Playstation Network.

Black Lab Games have released a new game trailer to coincide with the launch:

It’s quite an achievement for a solo developer to release near simultaneously on three platforms. So Paul Turbett, our collective metaphorical hat goes off to you! Good work!

Halogen now available on iTunes

Rockethands (local game developers and serial gamejam participants) has announced that Halogen for Apple iPad is now available on the iTunes App Store.

Here’s a description from the product page:

Halogen is a fun, fast paced action game which pits you and your pucks against hordes of enemies in a battle to clear a drifting space dreadnought of crazed droids. Deflect your pucks and smash the droids where it hurts! Mow down the enemy onslaught en masse to rack up insane scores! Activate the coloured reactors on each level and liberate enough Halogen elements to shut down each section of the ship, until all that remains is a final inexorable confrontation! In SPAAACE!

Their first endorsement is effusively positive:

First class time killer, you really knocked it out of the park. Easily one of the best games I own. You must be very proud of your game…would you mind terribly making all games from now on? – Cranberry Juice

Congratulations Brad and Rockethands!
