August 21, 2012 in Games (E)

[prMac.com] Minsk, Belarus - Company Melsoft today presents a new game from a young Belarusian studio Terra Zolotaria Zuba!. The game is a reflection of how talented Minsk developers see the genre of arcade racing. Zuba! is a combination of classic elements of arcade games, up-to-date game engine Unity and lots of fun iOS abilities.

Zuba! is the debut game of Terra Zolotaria and for its promotion studio's team decided to reach out to the professionals. The Publisher of Zuba! is Melsoft, a company famous for its successful titles such as Farm Frenzy series and Toy Defense.

The storyline takes players to a unique dizzying sweet hunt after the thieves of Zuba's favorite candies. There is no way the little fun bun can overcome all the numerous barriers such as deadly spikes, burners, grinders and many more without player's help. When tracing the caramel scent, there is a possibility of using not just different gadgets and bonuses, but changing Zuba's look as well. As simple as it may sound, the colorful world of Zuba! is indeed very addicting. Believe it or not, the true reason of Zuba! being so addicting is not the possibility of endless gameplay or randomly generated quests, but the kind of "philosophy".

Tatyana Zolotar, CEO and lead artist of Zuba! shared game's secret: "There is a quite deep philosophical meaning put into Zuba which can be felt only after entering the meditative process of the game."

Zuba! turned out to be some sort of creative experiment. When creating the main character, developers involved quite young artists. "Little kids aged from 2 to 5 helped us with sketches of Zuba!" - explained Tatyana - "That's why the main character is everything children's boundless imagination could come up with. Of course, professional artists also took part in creating the game and due to this fact the graphics deserve respect. Vivid and rich colors made the color palette really stand out. Graphics of this level is not often found in AppStore.

Creating of the art content lasted for 6 months. A big part of high-quality art content can be seen when customizing Zuba!. Numerous accessories are able to create a pretty much unique character. Each player can make his very own Zuba. It is remarkable, that music and sounds for the game were composed by a team of professional musicians.

With the introduction of Zuba!, the Apple platform got a game which stands out not just because it has a unique author's view on the classic arcade racing, fantastic graphics and dynamic gameplay, but also because it has a high level of usability.
