?Nung una, pamilya ko ang nagtulak para sa mga ganitong project,? said Lariz Santos, 8layertech?s art director. ?Kailangan maging simple at alam mong makaka-relate sila.??(My family inspired me to create projects like this. It has to be simple and relatable to users.)The gameplay of PesteBal ? an obvious wordplay on ?festival,? Peste (pests), and Bal (shorten name for ?Baltazar?) ? somehow mirrors the infamous Plants vs Zombies without the planting. Players? goal is to squash the incoming pests such as rodents, grasshoppers, and bugs and protect the life of the crops in ascending stages.
