Kyttaro Games Releases Droidscape: Basilica for iOS
      #45125 - 08/13/13 10:01 AM

Indie developer Kyttaro Games had released their first game Droidscape: Basilica, a carefully crafted action-puzzle game for iOS device. This sprawling sci-fi puzzler features 60 challenging levels, clay-modeled characters animated with stop-motion technology, intuitive touch controls, and an optional "HeadTwister" mode that turns the gameplay hands-free. Here's more info:



The year is 4057, and a power-hungry Ecclesiarchy has plunged humanity into a new Dark Ages. One of few remaining Chronomancers dedicated to preserving the secrets of time-travel has been taken hostage on the gargantuan Basilica space station, and if he dies, an already dark world will get a lot darker. Only a small, unarmed droid named Bishop 7 can save him -- and only with your help.



In each of Droidscape: Basilica's 60 two-stage puzzle levels, players use strategy to plot Bishop 7's course around roaming enemy droids to pick up gems, recharge at power stations, unlock doors, and reach the exit. Then, using either simple finger swipes or the revolutionary HeadTwister controls, manipulate time to carefully guide the droid through the course without crossing the enemy's path. As you travel deeper into the massive space station, Droidscape's electropunk sci-fi world comes to life via stop-motion animation, futuristic music and sound effects, and a vast backstory presented in interstitial scenes between levels.



Still in its experimental stages, Kyttaro's HeadTwister technology uses the front-facing camera of newer model iOS devices to replace a flick of the finger with a shake of the head. In this mode, players send Bishop 7 along the plotted course by turning their head right to step forward, or left to step back. The developers plan to refine the technology based on player feedback, with the ultimate goal of developing fully head-controlled games in the future. For those with older devices or who prefer a more tactile experience, the game is also completely touch enabled.

Droidscape: Basilica is a Universal App playable on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. It sells for $1.99 on the App Store: https://itunes.apple.com/app/droidscape-basilica/id586086388
