[prMac.com] Glasgow, United Kingdom - Claymore Games, a Glasgow based mobile games development company have released their first in-house iOS game, Plum Crazy 1.3.6.
Plum Crazy brings a unique style of game to the App Store. Behind the cute, colourful and playfully violent graphics you will find a fun, maze based game, but with a twist that will test the players' reaction and planning skills.
The objective is to guide our 'Plum Crazy' hero around the jelly maze filled with slicers, rotten tomatoes, gobby blueberries, nasty acid smoothies and all manner of fruity things. But the player must also keep up with the rollers that move around the maze or they'll end up juiced. Tapping or swiping on the screen rolls the grapefruit in the direction you want to go, squishing things as you move. Squish enough plums and you'll advance to the next level; complete all the levels in a world and you'll unlock a bonus mini-game.
There are a total of 24 levels, split over 3 worlds, each presenting different hazards. A bonus mini-game is available at the end of each world too! Plans to release more levels and mini-games are also in motion.
Plum Crazy has been developed using an objective-c port of the engine behind Claymore Games' innovative Primordial Soup build system, which was originally designed for developing Java mobile phone games.
Primordial Soup for iOS allows Claymore Games to easily include many features available on the platform, including Retina and Universal App support and iPod music player support, allowing players to listen to their own music while playing a game. Game Center support is also included, making the addition of Leaderboards and Achievements an easy task. Support for the iCade accessory and Joypad App have also recently been added.
Plum Crazy includes all of these features: Retina and Universal apps in one bundle, iPod music player support and Game Center leaderboards (each world has a combined leaderboard, with a separate one for each mini-game) and achievements (15 in total), and iCade and Joypad App support.
A free, ad supported version that lets you try out the first two levels of each world is also available, alongside the paid for version.
Extra information is available in the form of a Press Pack, which includes screenshots and a promo video.
