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!

 

Introducing RAD Boarding – Coming Soon!

i_pad_07

Hey Cakers!

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!

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!
