Lot of solid games hit the Marketplace in the last day so instead of bombarding you one at a time let’s go for a trifecta. We have the classic game of Finger Race, a puzzler called Falling Chickens and a motion controlled jump/action plat former called NinjaBoy. One at a time though:
Finger Race is Herm’s Software’s latest release. Like the classic version from the iPhone, the goal is simple – run with your fingers as fast as you can while competing with an online leaderboard. You can choose from one of five tracks, three different distances (sprinters versus distance finger runners I guess) or you can see how far you can get in 30 seconds. It’s free and available now. FYI there’s a glitch in how the leaderboards show up now but a fix is already in submission.
Next let’s go to a puzzle/logic game that’s really well put together called Falling Chickens. You need to get the chickens in the right order. You rotate the screen, tap a chicken and it falls. There are tools and obstacles along the way though and I’ve played it for a bit and it’s a lot of fun while keeping you thinking about the best solution. So you know, this is the second version available so there’s not a free (ad based) version along with a paid version that’s ad free (for $1.29). Smooth graphics and gameplay with a lot of levels make it a great package.
And let’s end this with NinjaBoy that carries a similar free/paid version (with the paid version being $3.99). here you need to tilt the screen and jump to hit the targets and get through the boards as quick as possible. As the game advances, so do your abilities. Both versions are receiving very high marks in the reviews.
Let’s give their complete description:
Take control of young Tadeo, aka NinjaBoy, as you jump, run and chop your way through level-after-level of carefully crafted platform-puzzler Ninja gameplay. Set within the Kingdom of Di, you’ll need to overcome both classic and new platformer challenges: tripwires, springs, Sentry Bots, Stompers, Pikemen, magical platforms, Wing Chun Guards, climbing poles, and even a boss, Lord Hito, as you look to defeat the kingdom’s evil emperor and restore peace to the region.
This version is exactly the same as the paid one "NinjaBoy", except it has in-game Ads.
v1.0 releases with the first two areas of the Di Kingdom. Many more are planned, and we look forward to releasing them in the near future.
– Simple interface, no on-screen controller or tutorials to go through, just get into the game and start playing.
– Unique multi-purpose enemies that function as both foe and level-solving tool.
– Carefully calibrated tilt-and-touch controls provide what we hope is the perfect balance between challenge and fun.
– 50 unique handcrafted levels, each with its own challenges and replayability.
– 5 unique enemies, 2 areas, plus 1 challenging boss.
– Unlockable Ninja abilities (like Chop) keep gameplay fresh and engaging.
– Persisted best-score and best-time for each level.
