Majaka Announce Square Planet

Paris, August 13, 2012 – Majaka announced today the Fall release of its iOS second title, Square Planet, currently in development. Following the runaway success of Ski Champion, now boasting over 400,000 installs, Majaka is upping the ante with a whole new adventure game.

At the heart of Square Planet is an exciting side-scrolling platforming game. The innovative title challenges players to control a cute (yet fearless) little Ball through stunning 3D environments. Dumped into an alien world, the Ball will have to infiltrate the Square Planet and rescue his (or is it her??) friends from the evil Squares. From bats to trees to dog poo, everything is square and edgy on the Square Planet !

Features

·         Stunning “square” art direction

·         Tap’n’tilt motion controls with realistic ball physics

·         Innovative game mechanics : gravity switch, alarms, power ups

·         Clever, multi-path level design

·         Dynamic, scripted animated set pieces

·         Fun background scenes of the Evil Squares in their daily life, sunbathing, working, hanging out.
