share_background

Do you have what it takes to be a Highrise Hero?

Noodlecake has joined forces with the team behind the fabulous Quell puzzle series, Fallen Tree Games, to bring you an addictive new word puzzle adventure game called Highrise Heroes.

Following a sudden earthquake, Seb must escape a crumbling skyscraper. Along the way he will make some intriguing new friends, and together they might just unravel the sinister origins of the ‘quake, assuming they can evade the mysterious stalker in close pursuit.

Starting at the top and working down, the game’s 90+ levels take place inside the skyscraper. The player creates words on a grid of letters and obstacles, clearing a path for Seb and friends to descend. Each character has special abilities you can use to help you along the way as well you must ensure all your friends escape each level before running out of air.  Strategy is the key to success!

With a puzzle pedigree from Fallen Tree Games, epic soundtrack from Gavin Harrison and a riveting story by acclaimed novelist Roseanne Rivers, Highrise Heroes delivers a high quality experience in both the production, story and puzzle game areas.

It has 90 plus levels, 60 additional challenges and is a balanced free to play game with a optional in app purchase to make the game fully premium and removes the ads, lives and free to play elements.  This way both lovers and haters of free to play can experience the game how they prefer.

Highrise Heroes is going to be launching December 11th!

Bitcoin Billionaire is coming!

bbwidebannerTAfirums

[UPDATE Oct 31] – We are excited to announce that Bitcoin Billionaire is approved and will launch Nov 6th on iOS!

Hey everyone. We are back again with a new game release we are really excited for!!

Introducing Bitcoin Billionaire from FizzPow Games. Bitcoin Billionaire is a funny, addicting and just plain fun new take on the “clicker” style of games. We have been playing this for a while and think you guys are going to love it. Get the images here.

Check out the app description:

Bitcoin Billionaire is an idle clicker that’s all about raking in bitcoins and building up a massive fortune! You start with almost nothing: a run-down office, a rickety old desk, a crummy computer. By tapping the screen you can mine virtual bitcoins and slowly increase your wealth. Spend digital dough to upgrade that awful furniture into swanky things like entertainment centers and priceless works of art. If you’re smart (which, you are!), you’ll spend some of that money on investments to help you earn while you’re away. And don’t worry, investments aren’t as boring as in real life. How could robot butlers, virtual reality and holographic dating be anything but awesome?

Tap your way from geeky bitcoin miner to geeky bitcoin miner who owns a private island with Bitcoin Billionaire!

We are just finalizing a release date for the game and will let you know as soon as we find out. It might be very soon….

Introducing MMM Fingers!

feature-900x439

It’s time to protect those delicious finger tips of yours because the monsters are coming and they have a hankering for your digits!

MMM Fingers is the new game from No Monkeys (Adventures of Small Fry fame) that looks to put your reflexes to the test in this fast, fun and polished high score game.  Since the bird of many flaps, these kind of games have fallen into the “dime a dozen” category.  However most are missing the high level of polish and love that No Monkeys has put into this game. Which is why we love it!

The graphics are fun and colourful and the game is oozing with personality.  The gameplay itself is simple.  By touching and holding down on the screen, players must navigate a randomly generated course of dangerous obstacles.  Touch the monsters teeth or lift your finger off the screen and CHOMP, it’s game over.  There is simple, and simple done skillfully and we really think this falls in the latter.

MMM Fingers is going to be free with ad support, however there are no video views to revive yourself and boost your score. Unlike Small Fry, we wanted to keep the leaderboards pure on this one without revives.

MMM Fingers and its cast of monsters will be creeping onto the AppStore near the end of October right in time for Halloween!

Cheers
Team Noodlecake
