FOOD RUN - first video, dev blog and beta program announcement

Food Run is a level-based platform game for iOS. Instead of a single character, you control a little troop of food characters known as a "food chain". Here's how it works.

As you lead your hero through the levels, you can release food buddies from floating bubbles.

One by one, these join your food chain, following closely behind the leader.

The longer your food chain, the more you're going to have to keep an eye on it, as enemies can take out your food chain as well as the leader...

Of course, you can get your own back, by stomping on their heads.


Release date: January 2013
Requirements: Requires iOS 4.3 or greater

I thought I wasn't going to like this game until I saw the popcorn following the egg, then I was like this is actually pretty cute/cool. I like the fact that they follow each other around. The game also looks very clean and polished.

It would actually be pretty cool if you turned those test levels into a sort of puzzler.

Nonetheless, this game looks nice, so I'm going to keep track of it!

This looks remarkable, especially for an early build - polished indeed! I'm looking forward to seeing more as it comes along.

Announcement - "Kevin Ng Games" is no more!

But don't worry, I've just got a proper name.

So Food Run will be released under my new name, "Pixels on Toast".

See the new website here. I'll be having a competition on the Facebook page soon to win some goodies, including some Pixels on Toast merchandise. Nom nom.
