Local mobile development firm Kuyi Mobile has partnered with fellow gaming software firm Monstronauts to create their latest mobile game — Pocket Arcade.
Described as “whimsically fun”, Pocket Arcade brings the physical arcade experience to mobile phone users with popular mini-games reinvented for the small screen.
“Classic interactive games inside the arcade were always memorable for me when I was younger” said Erick Garayblas, co-founder of Kuyi Mobile and lead game designer of Pocket Arcade.
“Replicating these unforgettable experiences for the mobile platform was both fun and challenging for me and team since we wanted to give the players the best and closest experience to the real thing.”
Pocket Arcade includes four mini-games to test players’ arcade skills and prowess:
• Alien Whacker, a modern spin on whack-a-mole.
• Mayan Coin Pusher, requiring gamers to strategically drop coins to push them (and prizes) into the bin for points.
• UFO catcher, in which gamers control a claw to pick up different prizes.
• Hoop Hero, a version of shoot-that-basketball.
Gamers can collect dozens of prizes across the four arcade games with various resources and power-ups between all the mini-games similar to larger-scale arcade experience.
Pocket Arcade was launched globally for both Android and iOS last March 10, 2017 and is currently featured as one of the top “New and Updated Games” for Google Play.
It is currently the number one “Arcade Game” in Spain, Germany and France and has swiftly gained over 300,000 downloads since its launch.
The game is free-to-play and can be downloaded based on Android and Apple iOS devices.
