Default Vampire Ventures by Clockwork Pixels [Universal]

Hello,

If you like casual/matching games with a bit of a story, please try out my new iOS game Vampire Ventures

Ideal for the Halloween season, it's a kid friendly game (no blood, lots of strawberry juice!) ... and ... there's a Lite version available which includes the first 15 levels : App Store Link : Vampire Ventures Lite





Low bandwidth Version | Pop Up


Let me know what you think ... but only if you like it ; )

Thanks,
George

Your stuff is always so polished and so fun! This is obviously a different twist on the Kitten/Puppy sanctuary stuff, so what's the main objective? You're not going to be keeping/collecting a castle full of ghosts, right (though that could be fun!) So do you collect/power up different spells then? Is that what I'm seeing in the video?

I love match 3 games. I checked out the lite version and I liked it. It has a quirky story and high quality graphics. This is the same dev who made Kitten Sanctuary and Darkside. You have my $1.99......

Ha, no ... instead of a sanctuary, there's a story ... which took about the same amount of development time as there's 40+ cut-scenes.

The game has some extra level types (compared to Kittens/Puppies), things like rotating lock levels, dropping items off the game board & battles. Talismans are filled by making matches (longer matches fill them more quickly), it's these that are shown in the video

Thank you. Glad you like the game ... and the graphics! I've had some 'too cartoon-like' feedback, so it's good to hear.

George makes the absolute best frickin' Match 3 games out there. If people stopped playing shit like Candy Crush and played this, Kitten Sanctuary and Puppy Sanctuary instead, the world would be a better a place. Give this game some love people!

FANTASTIC!
Finally some new match-3 stuff!

There weren't much mentionable match-3 games except Scurvy Scallywags and Old Clockmaker's Riddle in the last months.
It's an insta-buy for me.

Hate to say this, but this may just be my favorite Clockwork Pixels release.

Also, "too cartoon-like" is bull. The graphics are purr(sorry, wrong game :3)-fect.

It has been quite a while since a quality match-3 dropped on the AppStore, hasn't it? So bought, and I likey! High production values, varied goals throughout.

One minor thing tho, I hear the swoosh sound and the 3-note sound that pitches higher the longer chains you get going, but I can't hear anything when actually matching gems, put a gentle short bling-ish sound (or something similar) and have the 3-note as is for the chains. Thanks Clockwork Pixels.

After the disappointing mercenary mess that was Marvel Puzzle Quest, Vampire Ventures was exactly what I needed to cleanse the palate and restore my faith in those who still know how to make a quality match 3 game without fleecing its customers - well played, sir!
