[prMac.com] Zagreb, Croatia - Finally, after seven months of intensive brainstorming and development - Smart Way - the first game from Novi Forum is finally set to see the light of day. Smart Way is a highly addictive strategic turn-based puzzle game, guaranteed to attract brainteaser enthusiasts.
The challenge is straightforward and simple. The goal of the game is to outmaneuver and outsmart the super-clever character that is trying to escape the game board by placing obstacles around it. As the game progresses, this simple task gets harder due to the growing difficulty of new levels that are characterized by the increased presence of 'bonuses' - fields that enable the escaping character to evade the obstacles easier and faster.
Smart Way is richly themed with 6 different characters: a rabbit, a hedgehog, a sea crab, a fish, a cobra snake and a chameleon. Apart from the characters, there are 3 different playing environments available for players to enjoy: the desert, the meadow and the ocean. The pioneer version offers 60 mind-boggling levels. The subsequent editions will expand the number of environments, levels and characters, according to the developers.
Bojan Plee, the project manager briefly commented: "We are exhilarated to see the game finally hitting the App Store shelves. A lot of energy and effort was poured into this and we are very proud of the final product. Special attention was given to graphics, sound effects and the intelligence of the characters. Even the smallest of details such as characters' idle animations, ground detail levels and environment border placement, were retuned and reworked from scratch several times. We're very eager to see the players' reactions."
