New Zealand is among the first group of countries able to play the indie puzzle platformer Starlit Adventures, after it was soft-launched here last week.
Starlit Adventures is created by Rockhead Games, an indie studio based in Brazil. It's inspired by Nintendo classics like Bomberman, Dig Dug, Mr. Driller, and Boulder Dash, and is described as a "console-quality game with great controls".
The game follows Bo & Kikki, who are trying to restore peace to the world of the "starlits" after the villainous Nuru steals their siblings from the sky. Players lead the pair through 64 stages across eight worlds, using a variety of suits with special abilities to overcome obstacles.
It's free to play, with in-app purchases in the form of suits (though paid-for suits are freely available on levels where they're required for completion) and stamina restoration.
“Today’s mobile devices allow us to create fantastic games due to its processing power, and people are excited to play games that were developed with special care in storytelling and delivers good content,” said Rockhead founder and the game's animator, Fernando D'Andrea.
