Ongaku on iPhone/iPad Announced (by SmashMouth Games)


On recommendation from my close friend Kev Ng who made Wordcrasher (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/wordcrasher/id346537793?mt=8), we've joined Touch Arcade to hopefully tell you, the iPhone gaming community about our new released game and our upcoming game, which we are very excited about bringing to mobile.

Our new released game is Drag Tag Smash which is available now on the App Store ( http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/drag-tag-smash/id408743207?mt=8) …for a small price of $0.99/59p. You can read the thread about it here: http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=77862

Our upcoming game is called Ongaku. We have already released the PC version of the game and are now looks towards the development of Ongaku for mobile.

The first instalment of the mobile phone version of Ongaku is to feature the same unique artwork and original music from the Story Mode of the full PC version of the game. The Tune-A-Matic version of Ongaku, which allows users to play the game with their own music, pictures and videos, will arrive shortly after as a separate additional download pack.

Ongaku is a 2D rhythm action game combining an original score and stylised artwork. Players take the role of the magic crystal Ongaku and progress through the fantasy kingdom of Melody by popping paint bubbles in time to the music. If successfully popped, the paint bubbles reveal an artistic masterpiece, bringing the canvas to life with its unique artwork. This first instalment of Ongaku for mobile will feature:

 11 lusciously animated levels, each with their own new music theme

 Five difficulty settings allow you to enjoy playing, whatever your level of expertise

 Ever-growing collection of new downloadable Theme Packs available, including Pop, Rock, Dance and many more

Top notch game worth buying ;)

Definitely worth a buying for the music analyser functions and the ability to make your levels with any music or videos.

Drag Tag Smash HD Submitted to Apple


We finally got Drag Tag Smash out the door (and about time too!).

Hopefully with any look it will pass Apple's certification and we can then get ahead on our iOS title....Ongaku iOS (working title :P).

If you haven't heard this is a rhythm action game, but this one has the extra added bonus of a music analyser, which right now we have working and it is pretty sweet. AudioSurf eat your heart out ....nar i kid, AudioSurf is great and if we can ever be as popular as that game then I'd be happy.

Hopefully I'll get some art and videos in so we can start showing more of this game (right now the build is pretty rough).

Keep you posted.
