We are beyond excited to announce we will be working with Bloodirony Games on their new roguelike shoot’em up, Shooting Stars! If you are not familiar with Shooting Stars then first off, what is your deal?! Seriously.
Shooting Stars is a tale as old as time you’ve heard a million times before. Aliens have secretly conquered the earth and replaced all the famous pop-culture superstars by installing evil marionettes serving one purpose only – to control all human life. The sacred rainbow unicorn made it your mission to free the imprisoned stars, fight back the evil aliens and restore the balance of entertainment on planet earth. Like I said, a tale as old as time itself.
Using classic top down shoot’em up mechanics, Shooting Stars combines that classic game play with roguelike elements similar to The Binding of Isaac. The game has two modes, a card collection mode that randomly generates your levels and a daily run that allows you to compete against your friends in a daily challenge. There are tons of crazy bosses, weapons and upgrades to collect but I dont want to spill all the beans just yet.
Shooting Stars will be available early to mid July so stay tuned for more news as it drops and join the community over at Bloodironys website and get in on the fun early.
“Ever since we started to work with NCG it feels like being part of a loving and caring family. Their great expertise and professional support help us to push us and Shooting Stars even further. NCG, so much wow!” – Bloodirony Games
Yesterday was Cinco De Mayo and what a better day to announce and celebrate our partnership with Mexican game developers One Simple Idea and to reveal our upcoming game Mucho Taco!
Mucho Taco isn’t your average cookie clicker. It’s a Taco Flicker!
Mucho Taco is an idle game with a combination of clicker mechanics. In it you follow the advice of Barbacoatl, a shaman-like taco expert who teaches the player all about the golden tortilla, a magical artifact that has the power to create an infinite amount of tacos.
The player can use this power to amass tasty tacos and build their own taco empire by purchasing restaurants and upgrades that will make them even more tacos.
There are two main areas in the game, the taco production as well as the taco stand management. Stay tuned closer to release on how these two systems will operate as well as more information on Mucho Taco! In the meantime, go grab a taco or two and celebrate Cinco de Mayo with a few cervezas!
If you followed any of our GDC news, you might have seen us teasing a new game called Brickies. Well in case you missed it, here is the brand spanking new trailer that lets you know what it is all about.
Brickies is a new spin on breakout games with a beautiful flat art design and new time and ball activation mechanic that really stands out. We are hoping to have the game out in the next month to month and a half. Stay tuned for more news as it develops!
We are crazy excited to announce another new release coming in March!
Tiltagon is an awesome “super hexagon” like high score game from Jyri and Piia Kilpelainen and we cant wait to launch it. We have been working with them to help put the final touches on the game and we decided it was time to release an killer trailer to get you hyped!
Tiltagon will be out for iOS and Android in mid-late March. It will be free, but contains a clever new ad usage that I think you guys will find both fair, and really unique. More details on that closer to launch. For now follow us on Twitter or get all the Tiltagon news here!
Hope your holidays and new years and all that jazz were a ton of fun and filled with awesome gaming! We have been sort of quiet for the first part of 2015 but that is all about to change. We have a TON of great games on the way this year and we are kicking things off in 90’s style with RAD Boarding!
RAD Boarding was developed by Other Ocean Interactive and we couldn’t be more excited to work with them. It is a virtual cornucopia of Canadian mobile gaming goodness.
So what would you do if the world was coming to an end?
When you’re a burnt-out ’90s celebrity, there’s only one thing you CAN do: grab your snowboard, throw on your shades, and go out on one final ride as the world crumbles around you.
RAD Boarding is action packed and adrenaline fuelled; properly timing your in-air tricks can literally mean the difference between life and death.
Rack up massive points by chaining together tricks and battle against the abominations of nature that are birthed at the end of the world! Rock out to an original, catchy 90’s-inspired soundtrack, and no matter what you do, never, EVER, stop being RAD.
And one more thing – yes, that is a giant bear with an eyepatch. RAD.
Rad Boarding is slated for release in the upcoming weeks so keep an eye out here or on twitter @noodlecakegames for the official launch date. If you have any questions about RAD Boarding please do not hesitate to ask!
