Save the gabloos from their ill-fated journey in

Quirkat announced the release of its newest addition to their iPad games portfolio: Zonkt!. It is a fast-action arcade game where the player wants to save the adorable gabloos. It opens up to their beautifully animated story with a very catchy song that’ll keep replaying in your head!

A group of magical space critters have landed on earth on a quest to find life beyond their weird and crazy planet Gabloo. They had the misfortune of landing in the backyard of the deranged robo-scientist ZONKT who was so angry they’d ruined his bed of home-grown radio-active courgettes that he punished the critters by locking them up in his crate of cruelty. But help is at hand! The critters’ compatriots are floating on their way down to Earth to save the pioneers. The player has to save the critters before ZONKT uses his super evil compressor to make critter jelly cubes out of them to cook in place of the courgettes they’d ruined.

‘Zonkt! has magnificent friendly art, it’s a game of speed and matching, with a fun story behind it; altogether adding up to addictive gameplay. It is not a clone of any other game out there and the game mechanic, however simple, is quite unique.’ said Candide Kirk, Quirkat’s Studio Head.

The game gets really challenging and the player will feel the need to save those quirky little creatures before the jelly-cube hammer drops on their heads. There are 4 game modes to choose from: Time race, Strike Out, Shapeshifter and Courgette; each one featuring different gameplay and end goal, and each mode consisting of 25 levels to progress through. The game is as addictive as it is infuriating with the increased difficulty, where players can compete amongst each other with Openfeint’s leaderboards and tons of achievements.

Zonk! is Quirkat’s third iPad game following its classics Pegs by Quirkat and Quirkat game.
