5 games bons (e gratuitos) da NoodleCake

Já falamos por aqui da Kairosoft, criadora de jogos bem viciantes. Outra produtora de games mobile bem interessantes é a Noodlecake, um estúdio canadense fundado em 2011.

No portfólio da empresa tem muita versão de jogos da moda, alguns nada memoráveis e outros medianos. Após anos de estudo e testes, chegamos à escolha de 5 apps (gratuitos, porque a crise está brava) recomendados para vocês:

1) Bitcoin Billionaire

Versão meio bizarra de jogos como Make It Rain e Adventure Capitalism, esse game tem seu charme. Todo em pixel art e bastante dinâmico, ele exige que o jogador toque na tela para gerar dinheiro.

Com esse dinheiro, você investe em negócios geradores de dinheiro automático e o ciclo se repete. Bom para jogar nos 10 minutinhos livres do dia a dia.

Com versões para Android e iOS.


2) Super Stickman Golf 2

A continuação da série trouxe mais acessórios e fases para o golfista de palitinho. A curva de aprendizado é decente, mas a dificuldade dos estágios pode surpreender.

Os power-ups e o desenho das fases são criativos e isso é essencial para um jogo com gráficos mais simples. Quem quiser se aventurar mais pode comprar pacotes de fases extras dentro do app.

Com versões para Android e iOS.


3) The Adventures of Small Fry

O peixinho carismático fugindo do tubarão faz sucesso com as crianças. Mas, para conseguir uma boa pontuação, tem que ser crescido mesmo.

O game é bem desafiador, muitas vezes exigindo comprar in-app para continuar mais longe (ah, safadinhos da Noodlecake, já entendi tudo…), mas o game é bastante divertido, principalmente quando Fry sai da água e viaja pelo espaço.

Com versões para Android e iOS.


4) Horde of Heroes

Típico game de match-3, como Candy Crush e Marvel Puzzle Quest, com o ótimo diferencial da pixel art. O mapa das fases e como ele vai, literalmente, se montando na tela é sensacional.

Dá para investir em melhorias no seu personagem, que adquire mais vida, poderes, forças e afins para continuar na jornada contra os monstros do reino. É um dos jogos que mais curto atualmente da produtora.

Com versões para Android e iOS.


5) Punch Quest

Semelhante ao Jetpack Joyride, nesse game é preciso ir dando porrada nos monstros que aparecem em seu caminho. Socos e uppercuts (“shoryuken!”) abrem espaço, mas é preciso saber usar o bloqueio também.

Os gráficos não são tão bonitos, mas a variedade nos trajetos compensa a jogatina. E os power-ups são bem criativos.

Com versões para Android e iOS.


E aí, já jogou algum desses jogos? Recomenda mais algum da Noodlecake?

Super Stickman Golf 2

There’s something strangely utilitarian about the experience of playing amobile game. Unable to compete with the experiences offered by a PC orgames console, each has to fill a specific gap in your life. Maybe it’sbus journeys or toilet trips or hidden under the table on a really baddate, but I reckon the actual game’s quality is a secondary concern to how snugly it fits into the chosen scenario.

And it’s here that Super Stickman Golf 2 runs into trouble.

On one hand, SSG2 is a gleeful adaptation of the good-walk-spoiling sport that suggests how a Nintendo mobile game might feel, if the Big N were ever to change its mind on that issue. The game flattens golf into a simple 2D game of aiming and charging up your shot, then adds power-ups and fantastical courses. The result bear as much resemblance to Super Mario Bros 3 as it does Tiger Woods 11.

Mixed in among the usual sand traps and water hazards are sticky goo surfaces, swinging platforms and hard-to-hit shortcuts. Navigating these holes is made easier by the addition of a bag of seven power-ups. These include a rewind power that lets you take the last shot again and a whole load of balls: water-freezing ice balls, pink goo balls that cling to walls and ceilings, magnetised balls that I still don’t really understand how they work.

These additions enliven golf, the mildly diverting activity I’ve dabbled in a couple of times in real life, and turn it into something more colourful, satisfying and overtly game-y. It’s a fairground-mirror adaptation of golf that gives me a little more appreciation for the sport itself, just as Wii Sports and Wonderputt have in the past. So, in one way, SSG2 is a contender for the title of best mobile game I’ve ever played.

But it has one fatal flaw: You have to hold the phone sideways.

That might not sound like a big deal, but SSG2 fits a very particular niche. It’s not a toilet game, it’s not a coffee break game. It’s a black hole that consumes your time and attention – in other words, a perfect public transport commuter game. And if you have ever origami’d yourself onto the Northern Line at rush hour, you’ll know that the amount of space your elbows will need to control a game with both thumbs is just not going to happen.

I realise it’s my very specific set of circumstances that are causing this problem. And I know the game has to be that way – golf isn’t a particularly horizontal game, as I understand it. It’s not even a crippling enough flaw to stop me playing SSG2 even in the face of dropping my phone, as has now happened on not one but two crowded tubes.

But, for better or worse, this is the strange relationship we have with mobile games. They have to fit like Tetris pieces into our lives, or they’re just no good. I’m looking for a neat L block, and SSG2 is one of those long thin bastard red ones.

This is really diverse lineup of games, and given the high quality of things like Wayward Souls, it’s recommended that you just get the $8 tier and grab everything the bundle has to offer.

Go see!

And look at that!  Even Apple is helping us celebrate the Android release of Glorkian Warrior, by making us an Editor’s Choice and placing the game on the front page of the app store again!

I love our placement… right between 8bit Doves which I love, and the Galaga 30th Anniversary Collection!  Anyone who liked Galaga back in the day would probably love Glorkian Warrior.

And if you’re on Android, get Glorkian Warrior on Google Play or the Amazon App Store.
