"There's plenty of ingenuity on show in the level design, and quite often you'll need to think fast to ensure you don't plummet to an untimely death ." - POCKET GAMER (Silver award)

"Youre playing something unique and creative." - SLIDE TO PLAY

"Hairy Tales is simple enough to understand, but so maddeningly complicated so that youre addicted to the challenge, and what a challenge it is." - ARCADE SUSHI

ABOUT HAIRY TALES

Combining tile-dragging mechanics with fast furious action, Hairy Tales is a puzzle action game about the zany adventures of a group of not too bright folk spirits, as you help them puzzle out evil conundrums in their mission to save their tile-based world from sickening corruption.

It stars the Hairys, an excitable group of fairy folk who are so eager to clear their world of corruption that they simply don't watch where they're going. It's up to you to lead them to safety by placing tiles and power ups in their way.

It has 72 levels split across three distinctive worlds, where players must simultaneously save the Hairys from falling off the edge of the world by re-arranging the tiles on each level, while acquiring power ups, magic mushrooms and destroying evil enemy Kikimoras and their three powerful end bosses.

Out of all the games you've published, this is the one I'm most looking forward to playing! It looks like a really neat twist on the pathway-puzzle genre, without going the straight sokoban route. Very clever! Insta-buy!

I have to say I almost didn't publish this game, but Ricardo kept coming back again and again, and then finally won me over (and polished it much more)

OK. From the thread title, I thought you were self-publishing outside of those two name brands.

Anyway, game looks pretty cool. I'll be interested to hear some impressions before it hits stateside.

Heh, yeah, we had a different perspective on the main characters. I didn't want the Hairys to be the typical cute puzzle game characters, even if that meant they might be less instantly marketable, but to have their own peculiar, goofier personalities. Hopefully we succeeded at infusing both the design and animation with its own style.

Take a five-star to help bump it up. I generally ignore the thread ratings anyway.

The artwork was what initially attracted me to this app. I thought it might be a new RPG, but once I found out it was a clever puzzler, I was sold! So yes, you definitely nailed it, and I hope this app is a success for you.
