Beanstalk Bandits - coming early March



Beanstalk Bandits is an endless climbing game with a simple one-touch control mechanic. Touch the vine you are on to climb up or touch another to jump across.

Bandits have stolen all the King's treasures and are escaping up the beanstalk. Chase them down while collecting all your stolen gems and coins.

Collect three same color gems to increase the score multiplier.

Collect a full set of gems to get a coin bonus.

The higher you climb the more points you'll score.

Complete various quests and you'll get access to your magical crowns which give you special abilities, which will help you climb the beanstalk even higher.

Features Game Center leaderboard and achievements.


The game should be submitted to Apple next week and available shortly after.

Always wanted to see a DK vine climbing type game, but the gameplay seems a little slow to me.

I wasn't aware of the DK game until halfway through development and was a little disappointed to see the idea of climbing vines wasn't that original.

The final game is a bit quicker than the video and runs at 60 frames per second.
The game speed also increases as you climb higher and progress through each chapter. (Each chapter consists of six tasks, kinda like the missions in Jetpack Joyride).
