----------------- Long Description ------------------

Haraka is a fast paced game with a Sci-Fi mood, easy to pick up and with a 90′s arcade game feel.

The two alien ninjas challenge themselves in a space environment without gravity and they have to hit the ball with a Bo and score points by rebounding it on the opponent’s court. It recalls PONG as basic gameplay scheme but with more features and bonus pods. You can increase your skills by beating more opponents and then increase the game speed to the limit.

There are 2 main game modes, Single Player and 2 Players.

Single Mode

The player has to chose the next unlocked level and challenge the next alien ninja, trying to beat him. While playing there are some Bonus Pods that can be unlocked after a match.

Each level has 3 main parameters which are:

number of rounds

points for each round

the friction constant for each rebound on the walls

If the player beats the current opponent, he will receive 1 to 3 points showed on the level thumbnail as light bulbs, that will level up the skills of the main character and the next level will be unlocked.

The skill points will increase the Speed, Strength and Agility.

2 Players Mode

The same device it’s used to challenge friends as the top part of the device it’s used by the second player.

There are 3 game speed modes:

Slow

Normal

Fast

The game speed and the players skills will change based on the selected speed mode.

Pods

Some pods will appear on the screen while playing, giving to the player the opportunity to tweak temporarily his skills and use special features to change his game status in better or worse.

The available pods are:

Max Speed

Max Strength

Max Agility (increase the accuracy for each strike)

Deflector

Score x 2

Score + 2

Score – 2

Decrease Skills

Deactivate Deflector

Slowdown Ball

What a great little sport! The single system multiplayer is hilarious.

?????Fantastic old-school arcade game - love it!! by Brockalicious

Highly addictive and fun to play!

?????Pong On Speed. by alex_gee

This game is a fantastically addictive, challenging (to say the very least) and evokes all of the nostalgia of retro-arcade gaming. Not since Mario-Tennis (N64) have I been so consumed by the need to continually chase a ball across a screen, and not since finishing Fruit Ninja, have I found a reason to keep my iPod close at hand.

?????Kul spel! by Nirymnirym

Ett spel som verkligen utnyttjar touch-skärmen på ett effektivt. Bra både för en och två spelare. Lätt att komma igång men utmanande längre fram. Mycket fartfyllda multiplayer-matcher. Den som fegar är rökt. Rekommenderas!
