In March this year we released KAMI RETRO, a gesture driven puzzle based platformer for the iPhone but we certainly never thought it would receieve the praise it did on release and over the subsequent months.

On release KAMI RETRO was awarded Game of the Week which was fantastic news, it then went on to feature in the Greatest Platformers, Stylish Games, Intuitive Controls Section of Benchmark Games and has now been entered in to the Hall of Fame.

Apple added the Hall of Fame section to the App Store in November 2010 as a means of presenting what they describe as the “very best of the best” games for the iPhone and iPad, both paid and free.

KamiCrazy comes to Android - fusing Lemmings with Bills Tomato Game

Wednesday, 21 December 2011 0 comments

Back in August 2008 around the time Apples AppStore opened we decided to develop a Lemmings inspired game for the iPhone. The project had to be complete within 12 weeks since our aim was to release to coincide with the AppStores first Christmas. The development was also a number of years prior to forming Paw Print Games and as such was a spare time project requiring us to work all evenings and weekends for the duration.

The goal of the project was to create a gesture driven lemmings style game where the aim is to guide as many of your Kamicrazy troop from an entrance to an exit. Additionally we wanted to fuse moveable elements such as Fans and Springboards from the classic Bills Tomato Game whilst adding further interactive components such as ropes, levers, switches and bombs. The world had to be infested with traps and within a single-screen playing field.

Creating a multi-character gesture controlled game whilst allowing users to move components and have frantic gameplay wasn't without it's problems but we got there in the end and released KamiCrazy just in time for Christmas 2008. It saw over half a million downloads within 3 weeks and held a number 2 spot in the All Game Charts over the Christmas period.

Jumping forward a few years we decided to look through our back catalogue and made the decision to port KamiCrazy to Android and release it for Free! The game also comes with a bunch of additional improvements and content including: integrated tutorials, a medal award system, further gesture improvements and gesture particle trail, a new Christmas Theme and Christmas hat wearing Kami characters plus more...
