[prMac.com] Shoham, Israel - Sparkin' Apps today is pleased to introduce Monster Warrior 1.01 for iOS, their free 3D Game that challenges the speed and accuracy of virtual warriors, as they must slash and kill flying monsters but avoid bouncing bunnies. The company's previous game, Spearfishing 3D, rose to the top three in free games and was cited in Apple's New and Noteworthy column. Set in a spooky castle, the bunnies escape before the evil witch can eat them. She sends her monsters out into the night across the marshes, past haunted houses to re-capture the bunnies. The game includes dramatic graphics and sound effects, imaginative animated effects of slashing monsters in two, Game Center Leaderboards and Achievements, and Retina display support. There are four different modes of play: Freestyle, Survival, Arcade, and Task.
Played in landscape orientation the game includes a variety of animated 3D monsters, who appear onscreen for a few seconds each, often several at one time. Depending on the mode of play, these humorous monsters leap across the screen following a parabolic trajectory, dangle from the top of the screen and return upwards, bounce randomly upward, or fly and hover. Occasionally, a bunny hops into the air and players must avoid slashing and killing a rabbit along with the monsters.
All modes include scoring at the end of the game, broken down by Points, Monsters, Combos (slashing two or more monsters at the same time) and Rabbits. In Freestyle mode, players must kill as many monsters as possible in the allotted time. Survival mode requires players to kill all the monsters, while not harming any bunnies. Arcade mode includes power-ups with double points, the ability to freeze time, or increasing the flood of monsters. Finally, in Task mode a small inset displays the type of monster that must be killed, and the type of monster changes many times throughout the game.
With melodramatic music and scary sound effects, Monster Warrior gives players funny, evil targets at which to slash away. The game includes exciting particle effects, stars, flames, and detailed 3D graphics.
