App description: The highly anticipated sequel to ElectroMaster has arrived!


CRITICS:

"A truly original game built around an authentically fresh mechanic." -AppAdvice.com


Delica and her talking cat Saten are hungry! Lucky for them they know how to turn the monsters that infest the nearby forest into fruit. Your goal is to survive long enough to collect enough fruit to feed yourself and the locals.

The controls are simple: hold your finger on the screen and Delica moves towards it. To turn monsters into fruit start a swipe on her and drag across any nearby monsters. This pixie dust trail you create will freeze any monsters you select, and upon your release will turn them all into fruit! If you ever get into danger you're only a two finger tap away from summoning a spell to clear the screen (It'll cost you though). When you've collected enough to satisfy a home's quota drop by a nearby house, it's that easy.

With over 100 missions in the story mode and a Time Attack mode in which to hone your skills, you won't be able to put it down.

*Features Game Center support including Achievements and Leader boards.*

FINALLY! I've been waiting for this, too, for what feels like forever. ElectroMaster is one of the truly great iOS classic-style arcade games, and this should be every bit as good. Extremely highly recommended, and for those who don't have ElectroMaster, that's another ringer for 1980's style arcade games fans. Buy this, and help encourage xionchannel to keep making these fantastic games.

Game Impressions

Electro Master is one of my favourite games on the iOS as well, and if anything this one just about tops it. I know a lot of folks will pass this up after a glimpse of the screenshots, but the fact is it plays 100 times better than it looks. Simply an outstanding game.

it looks like the graphics got a little update... or is it just me? Maybe this one just has more added to it... I dunno, but the 2nd, 3rd and 5th screens look like the graphics have been updated, IMO... =o/

Yeah it's a bit more shiny than ElectroMaster. Lots of lovely explosions and rainbow magic dust and stuff. Love the graphics. It also has much larger scrolling level areas. And you have to do more stuff...

Having had a proper go of it now, I LOVE it. It's really simple to play but getting a good score is quite involved. Feels really satisfying transforming large swathes of cute monsters into food. ^_^

There seem to be some obscure tricks to getting bonus points.. I haven't figured out how it all works yet. One thing the game does tell you is, the length of time you "scrub" (draw the line of magic dust stuff over) the enemies affects what kind of food they turn into.

I love how the more food you collect, the heavier you get and the slower you move (sweat dripping from brow).. feels great when you offload the food at a house and can suddenly zip around really fast again.

It's good fun..definitely recommended if you're into big friendly, cutesy, original arcade games.

Is there a Survival mode? A game like this always benefits from one.

I really liked ElectroMaster, so this is an easy insta-buy for me. I've been waiting for HungryMaster for awhile too.

Like I said on Twitter, this was an insta-buy as soon as you mentioned it was out, and I'm very satisfied.

Couple of notes - it's not universal but going back between this and ElectroMaster I actually think the built-in filtering helps the arcade CRT effect on the iPad at 2x. And the control schemes have no trouble adapting.

I did run into a bug, at the first boss - the help/intro text sequence would play over every time I tried to tap. It may have had something to do with playing that section in Time Attack before I'd actually got that far in story, or it might have been a random thing, but it did happen a couple of times though I eventually got past it. I reported it to the author but he hasn't been able to repro.

Anyway, great game. I don't think anyone has done a better job of creating a "lost arcade game" yet.
