IF YOU LIKE LINE (PATH) DRAWING GAMES THEN YOU WILL LOVE THIS.

NEW FEATURE IN VERSION 1.1
- Mission mode with 3 chapters each with 9 mission!
- New Game skin for new experience. Tap the eye 5 times to change the skin!
- Openfeint supported!

Return of Pied Piper combines the path drawing feature in game play with an extended perhaps more sinister version of a legendary fable.

The fable where no sooner had Pied Piper rid the town of Hamelin of an infestation of rats; he was treated as an outcast and ran out of town. He took his revenge by driving children out of town using his magic hypnotic flute.

This Halloween, the Pied Piper Returns to Hamelin to seek revenge & retribution.
Do you have what it takes to help the Pied Piper seek his revenge by infesting the town with rats again and banish even more children to the Hamelin caves?

Using the popular path drawing feature & under the watchful eye of the town guards protecting the city gates, you playing as Pied Piper, have to fulfill the following objectives:

*Lead the Rats and King Rats back into Hamelin through the city gates

*Simultaneously direct Children to the Hamelin caves

*Pay attention to the colors and make sure the Rats and the Children avoid collision.

*Watch out for the guards at the city gates as well, a collision between the guards and the rats will end in disaster and pour scorn on the evil plans of pied piper

Be a part of this evil story where Pied Piper tries to get even;- let CDE Humble Gaming tell you the extended fairy tale of Pied Piper, called Return of Pied Piper and which gamers are calling:

Incredibly simple, but amazingly engaging
Full of beautiful medieval type graphics and animation
Insanely addictive one more go game play

looks quite cool - a halloween styled linedrawer from what i can see. i don't expect that this will get much attention though, what with 33rd Division and Harbor Havoc coming out any day now.

LOL, I'm looking at 3 games : Abductor, A Lyndon Wicked Tale:Red Rage and this one. All by the same devs (they also do Anna Montana). They decided to release all their games the same day???

The game seems interesting but I really need some videos... And I don't enjoy a lot the "normal background with the next version" because I don't know what it looks like.

I just played it some this morning and it offers some cute and original tweaks.

You have two primary line drawing tasks, getting the various colored rats into the center (to their corresponding colored ramp, of course) while at the same time trying to lead the children (Pumpkin headed freaks that they are) to the appropriate colored caves in the upper right and lower right corners.

Standard fare so far but here come some of the twists...

While the rats seem to be far more common, there is no danger in rats bumping into other rats or children into other children...but should a rat and child cross paths, GAME OVER.

Another twist? There are ghosts! You have no control of the ghosts whom love to flit randomly about the screen and if any of your rats or children bump into one, GAME OVER.

Last but not least, once in a while you'll get a rat king whom has the power to draw up to three similar colored rats along with him into a little train (not sure what the advantage is to this, I'm hoping more point when they come in as a group).

Looks pretty cool. The description says they're replacing the Halloween theme with a different skin in the next update. Wonder if it'll be selectable!
