App description: Hangry Giants: furious fun beating up on big, ugly giants with magic! Move, trade, and match fast to win.

PLEASE NOTE: iPhone 5 or better recommended.

There's a pack of hungry, angry giants on the horizon. Move fast!

Your SHRINKY spell has three charges. TAP! TAP! TAP! Three giants deflate like balloons and scurry to safety. Hah, take that! Still six left - and theyre getting close.

The WINDY spell could push them away, give you more time, only its not fully energized. Hurry. Every card in your hand needs to match a symbol, and matching a full line releases energy. Just one more line and WINDY will be all juiced up.

One match...two...three. So far, so good. You have everything except - darn! - youre missing a Diamond. You trade for a new card, drawn at random.

Circle. No help. A giant raises his foot at the edge of your territory. Defeat is seconds away. Trade again! NOW, NOW!

YES!! The Diamond appears, the line matches, and WINDY is ready! With another TAP you unleash a mighty gale that scatters the giants back to the horizon.

Whew. Youre safe again - for now.

Quick wits and quicker tapping are your only hope against waves of hungry, angry giants! Hangry Giants is the worlds first Puzzle-Power Defense game.

-PLAY 47 levels of save-the-world-and-probably-get-eaten mayhem
-DISCOVER a dream world and a king whos, wellkind of a jerk
-EARN new, powerful spells
-LOSE all track of time (who needs it anyway?)
-LOVE the LO-FI old school charm
-HAVE FUN!

No gimmicks, energy timers, or pay to win. There are voluntary ads, which you can pay to remove. If you like the game, be a sport and throw a couple bucks our way! Thanks, champ!!

This game is actually fun to play.

You have 4 symbols and 2 rows of symbols. The first row shows you one of 4 symbols on 4 blocks and you need to make the 4 blocks under them match those symbols. (Look at screenshots, this explanation is terrible ).

You can select one or more symbols (with retrictions) and "trade" them for one of the other 3 symbols. If you match all 4 of the above symbols by doing that you get abilities (cards) to use against the Giants approaching.

I only spend about 20 minutes with it so there seems to be much more. You have different ability cards with different effects, effective vs different kind of Giants. The story is a little funny and does not take itsel seriously at all.

After you finish a level you earn money and unlock additional levels. This money can not be bought wit in app but it also seems like you have more than enough to advance in the levels. But it could be possible that you have to grind later, I have no idea.

The IAP in this game is actually really cool. It is a pay what you want 1-5 to remove ads. Yup, that's it.

Overall fun little game which I recommend to check out. I do not really like the art style though and it seems to be a bit on the easy side (at the beginning though and it is not super face roll easy).

Didn't expected to like it but graphics is not all

Thanks so much for spending some time with my game! Glad you found it fun - that's the only thing that matters to me. Anything else can be fixed or improved, but fun is either there or it isn't!

I'm still tweaking the difficulty curve, so your comments on that are especially valuable. The later levels are definitely challenging (even for me, and I've played the heck out of this game). Next update will see some tweaking on that.

Thanks again! So awesome to get good feedback.

Thanks! I tried hard to make a game I hadn't played before, something new. Still not sure what to call it. The core mechanic is unique (as far as I know) and as you say, is a mash up with tower defense.

Anyone got any ideas? If someone can nail what to call this thing, you'd have my undying gratitude and a place in the game credits!
