About a week ago Pelixion Oy (Ltd.) launched the iPad version of the new HUPA-HUPA! game on the App Store. Now the title is getting a welcome expansion into the rest of the iDevices. All lovers of casual games, rockets and animals can start shooting pachiderm ammunitions. The targets are the invading monkeys who have laid their sticky paws on HUPA-HUPA! There is a couple of features in HUPA-HUPA! that can be described as rather uncommon features in physics-based games of the tower-crush genre, in particular the rotating elements and the fully animated characters. These features have the potential to further increase the game's replay value.
Player’s task is to free the world of HUPA-HUPA! from the monkeys and you will do that by feeding the main characters Will and Kate some eye candy. We mean literally– their diet is pretty carbohydrate-based. Their pachiderm bodies then transform these candy foods into explosive ammunitions that you get to launch towards the red monkeys. You will soon find it quite addicting to catch them riding on rotating ferris wheels or running on ropes, jumping on trampolines or just being simply annoying.
The soundscape of HUPA-HUPA! is catchy. Especially the last of the worlds, the Candy Shop has a cute ambient track that you might find yourself humming after a couple of rounds.
Lasse Kovanen from Pelixion Oy (Ltd.) explained the creative process:” One of the leading design principles in the creation of HUPA-HUPA! was the whole time to achieve a good mood game. There’s a lot of stress around so many of us don’t want to play stressful games. HUPA-HUPA! is a happy, increasingly challenging game that suits players of all ages, with or without gaming experience. We are planning to bring many world and level updates and upgrades to HUPA-HUPA! in the coming months.”
HUPA-HUPA! is rated 4+ on the App Store.
As mentioned, HUPA-HUPA! will be getting more worlds, levels and surprise elements in the coming months so get your game on the App Store and start getting used to the candy-eating pachiderms, they are here to stay for your entertainment!
