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

Awww so many feels! Love those guys.

Introducing Much Taco!

banner

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!

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!

RAD Boarding brought to you by Other Ocean and Noodlecake with support from the Canada Media Fund.

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
