App description: Life was happy and peaceful for the Lifelings of Yam Yam forest Then one night the Darklings showed up. Fear spread and life got all messed up. Help the Lifelings to get home before nightfall. If you dont the Darklings will take them away!

"Unique take on the physics flick genre where you are running while shooting. I really like trying to go as fast as possible and getting master shots. Also cool to change up the music in the menu. I like it and I'm sure kids would love it!" 5/5 - Floydianspiral (Player Review)

"Not so complex that I feel I need a controller for my phone, but not so shallow that I feel like I figured it out in two minutes. This is exactly why I mobile game! Plus, the graphics are vibrant, silly, and an absolute hoot! " 5/5 - Svt1977 (Player Review)

"Really unique gameplay! Lots of levels that get you really hooked! This is a fresh game that was surely missing on the app store!" 5/5 The Mighty Penguin (Player Review)

"I had bought this game to check it out for my little cousins but it turned out I played it more than anyone. Other reviewers have compared this to Angry Birds but this is so much more endearing. The game play is good, the characters fun and I love it when they tell me I've done a good job. This is seriously fun for everyone and the best game I have downloaded for a while. Makes me smile and keeps my attention - I hope my boss doesn't notice how often I am away from my desk playing this!!!!" 5/5 - AJLawless (Player Review)

Within the vibrant world of Yam Yam Forest players will use intuitive touch controls to flick different fruit at white flowers. When matched to the correct colour fruit the flowers will grow and fill the gap in the path. This allows the adorable Lifeling characters to cross over and reach home. If left stranded night comes and they will be taken away by the deplorable Darklings!

The twist with Yam Yam: Puzzle Guardians is that your characters are always moving. The trajectories that you need in order to hit the targets are constantly changing. Combined with the colour mechanic, this makes for a very engaging and original game experience.

Apple feature

Apple have featured Yam Yam as New & Noteworthy (iPhone and iPad) in the Games section in a bunch of countries. It's nice to see one of them is my home turf, the UK

Maybe they think it's a fun game. Well, they'd be right! Play for yourself and see

Hey Shaz - well done - picked this up last night and properly enjoyed. Plan on finishing the first page of levels this evening. Properly enjoying it so far. Very different to McBank.

Glad to hear you're enjoying it Yeah all my games tend to be completely different from each other. The next one will be too!

How are you finding the difficulty curve? With this one I've tried to make it good for both people who like to master games and those who just want to take it easy and relax.

i.e Just getting to the next level is not that hard most of the time, but saving all the Lifelings and getting all the Master Shots - that will take some practice. Especially if you are using the speed boost for extra points.

Yep - i tend not to move on until I've fully completed a level with all the stars too. Like it. The pace picks up nicely.

Cool - you're playing how I hoped people would and how I prefer to myself.

I think the most satisfying aspect of the gameplay comes when you are using the speed boost and you zoom through the level hitting all 3 targets first time and getting the Master Shot too.

Like some kind of Yam-ee Ninja

By the way, feel free to mention any feedback you have for updates.

More New & Noteworthys and IGM

So Apple UK making Yam Yam New & Noteworthy in the game section seems to have had a knock on effect.

It's now also N&N in games in loads of countries. For those interested here is the full list.

Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Germany, Finland, France, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Latvia, Luxembourg, Malta , Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Switzerland, Slovakia, Slovenia.

Also nice to see that Indie Game Mag posted it up. Here's what they said:

"With so many similar sports simulators, physics puzzlers and adventure games being released for mobile recently, its rather unusual for a game to be released that doesnt fit cleanly into the typical range of genres. Yam Yam: Puzzle Guardians by Honey Tribe Studios is one such game"

Chart positions

So since Apple UK featured Yam Yam in the Games section it has gone to number 828 in the UK iPhone games chart.

Hopefully it will keep climbing but as a 1-man studio it sounds pretty good when there are 145,000 games on iOS!

If you like the zany look of Yam Yam and enjoy new gameplay experiences please download it and give it a try!
