IM Software releases Doodle Blitz - A Retro-Styled Arcade Game

February 14, 2010 in Games (F)

[] Christchurch, New Zealand - Independent developer Ivan Mackintosh of IM Software, author of the popular WhatBirdNZ and Dynamate logic puzzler applications, has released his latest application Doodle Blitz 1.0. Doodle Blitz is a retro-style arcade game set during the Blitz operations of World War II. The graphics have been nicely drawn in a hand sketched style with a backdrop of blue graph paper representing the sky.

The game is split into missions (levels) each getting steadily harder than the last. Each level consists of a row of varying height buildings that need to be destroyed. The higher levels have larger and taller cities. The player controls the bomb release lever of a biplane as it flies over the city. The plane's altitude reduces for each subsequent run. For a successful mission all of the buildings need to be destroyed. Failure to do so results in the plane crashing and game over. A good strategy is required as only one bomb can be dropped at once and a single bomb will only destroy a portion of a building. This is more apparent on the higher levels with larger cities.

The sound effects enhance the atmosphere of the game with the rumbling of the propellers, the bomb whistle and the explosions each coming from the appropriate place in the stereo sound field. Doodle Blitz provides a casual pick-up-and-play experience with clear objectives and simple controls. With games only lasting a few minutes it is ideal for gamers on the move. OpenFeint integration has also been supported providing a global leaderboard and progressive achievements which add greatly to the replay value.
