About Hungribles

Hungribles are tiny creatures with massive appetites. Their cravings are so powerful they can pull food through the air and into their waiting mouths. Only by feeding them tasty orbs can you satisfy their incredible hungers but when Hungribles get together you'll have your hands full trying to feed them all.

Hungribles Gameplay Revealed in New Screenshots The aim of the game is to feed the Hungribles and make them happy. You do this by launching tasty orbs from a strange glowing mushroom slingshot. Pull back with one finger on the screen, slide on the screen to aim and then let go to let fly!

Hungribles are so hungry that they literally draw food towards them, an effect that is a bit like gravity. Each Hungrible's "hunger force"

affects the path of the tasty orb as it flies across the screen.

Feeding a Hungrible can also affect its behaviour and the challenge comes from predicting the trajectory of each orb and figuring out the best feeding order.

Earn score bonuses by bouncing orbs off walls, curving them around Hungribles or hitting the Pot of Gold. Perfectionists can try to achieve a three star rating on every level. Compared to other physics-based puzzlers, in Hungribles there is more skill in aiming and the hunger inspired gravity effect is unique.

Hungry for more?

Hungribles is Futuremark Games Studio's first game for iOS devices and will be released later this summer.
