[prMac.com] Blackburn, United Kingdom - ScottiStudios today is pleased to announce that they have released a free version of their new five star game, Save the Monster. The App Store description sums the game up well: "Run the gauntlet and survive in a world ruled by evil robots, spanning numerous toe-curlingly challenging levels, bringing more enemies and difficulties with each level. Run, Sneak, Dodge, Time to perfection, and survive."
The game is an Action Puzzler, with the player needing to control a monster that is being chased by "Evil Robot Guards". Dodging the guards is challenging enough, but not the only feature in the game. You must also collect the stars (placed in hard to reach areas, of course) to complete each level, with extra gems to collect within an allotted amount of time.
"We have been wanting to release a free version of the game right from when the full game went live on the AppStore. We have had so many people wanting to play Save the Monster, we thought it would be great if people could play it for free." Says developer, Scott. "This game was developed over nearly a year by just myself, and I would love for more people to be able to play the game."
Save the Monster HD, the full game, is set over two locations, or stages, The Beach and The Tundra, with a 3rd stage The Sahara being added shortly. Each stage presents the user with its own unique challenges, with different types of robots and added objects and puzzles for each.
Scott is confident that anyone downloading the game will be addicted to the gameplay. "I've had such a great response about the game from gamers and reviewers that I know the free version will be well received! There has been mainly 5* reviews so far, which is great."
The graphics for this free puzzle game are in gorgeous HD for the Retina display, but simple and colorful. The backgrounds really add to the enjoyment of the game. Its not too fussy, and shows off the simplicity but refined edge of the game well.
The game play starts off quite easy, easy enough to get you hooked, and drawn into the game, as it subtly teaches you the game and how to play, while still challenging you. After the first few levels, Save the Monster really shines, bringing an interesting mix of arcade style action, puzzle and humour while some levels are quite hard, they add to the brilliance of this game. In conclusion, Save the Monster - both the free version and the full version - are well worth downloading.
