Arcade blaster Eyes Attack now available on iOS – Come and get your tilt on

London, UK. – August 1st, 2013— Marvelous Games has today announced the immediate launch of Eyes Attack, a dazzlingly fun, hypnotic title exclusively available for iOS. Available on the App Store for free as of today, Eyes Attack casts players as Hunter, a fluffy blue furball who loves nothing more than disposing of evil aliens by shooting rocks, nukes and lightning bolts, while being protected using a delightful variety of unlockable hats.

Eyes Attack, a collaboration between Marvelous Games and Russian indie developer Alexander Murzanaev, takes a completely fresh approach to smartphone and tablet gaming.  A series of genuinely new game mechanics make for a title with immediate appeal, but surprising depth.

Physics matters, as players must not only tilt their device to move to avoid aliens, but also to maintain the right momentum needed for their stones to hit their targets. With a limited amount of available ammunition, it’s vital for players to take advantage of the sporadic range of power-up drops throughout the course of each level.

The aliens come in many forms. The greenies are small and nimble and present little problem in the early stages. The blue guys are big and fast – and split into two when first hit. Don’t be fooled by the dotty blue ones – they are dangerous alone and terrifying in groups. The yellow ones can jump incredibly high. And as for the red ones... well, keep your wits and stones about you. 

Game key features include:

  • Free to play, with 160 levels in four different environments – each with their own tricky physics twists.
  • Players can create their own daily tournaments to challenge friends for ‘winner takes all’ in-game currency prizes.
  • Wide range of funky power-ups like Tesla hats, laser towers, and costumes ranging from the sneaky ninja to the zombie and more.
“It’s been a delight to work with Alexander on Eyes Attack ,” says Harry Holmwood, CEO, MAQL Europe.  “The first time I played it, it made me smile in a way that very few games do, and I remain hooked on it to this day.  The worldwide launch of Eyes Attack represents our continued commitment to finding and working alongside the most innovative and talented indie developers. Available now on the App Store, we’re excited to hear players’ reaction to Eyes Attack.”

About Alexander Murzanaev:

Alexander Murzanaev is a self-taught Russian game developer based near Moscow. A lifelong love of games inspired him to start coding his own games from when he was 12. He now has 15 games to his credit, ranging from a chess game that extends in up to 9 dimensions to a real-world RPG integrating Google maps with a fantasy storyline. 

However, it was the advent of mobile games that really got Alexander excited about development. After two other mobile games, Alexander started coding Eyes Attack back in 2012 with a simple objective. “I just wanted to make something that as a gamer, I would love to play myself. And, I think I succeeded.”
