[prMac.com] Zagreb, Croatia - Indie studio Daygames is thrilled to introduce it's new iOS arcade game called Floaty Hamster for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Floaty Hamster is beautiful new game that combines innovative "flinging" control, gravity, underwater physics and deadly objects. This game is easy to learn but difficult to master which is why you'll find yourself rage quitting every time you die but somehow, 10 minutes later, you'll be doing it all over again.
At a first glance you might think Floaty Hamster is one of the Flappy Bird clones. After all it's main protagonist is an animal with made up adjective in the title. But this couldn't be further from the truth. Floaty Hamster is filled with innovative ideas and details that suggest it's development took more than a day.
Controls are not the usual "tap and slide" that you can find in other mobile titles, it uses "flinging" which requires you to rapidly pull the hamster at the angle and speed your desire and lift your finger off the screen. You might find it odd at first but you will quickly fall in love at the freedom it provides you compared to the other games with predetermined moves.
Two things keep you going in Floaty Hamster: it's pride and curiosity. If you're prideful you won't be able to stand having low high scores and seeing you're poorly ranked on the online leaderboard. If you're curious you'll want to see the extra characters you get for achieving scores of 25 and 50, and also the story that slowly unlocks with every 25 points.
Floaty Hamster is a game that plays with your mind. At first you're just floating in a river loving life, then the objects start to come, more and more until your fingers start to sweat. You start to think about your high score and then it happens, the easiest object ends your streak leaving you to wonder "How could I let this happen?"
