Futuremark released today the first gameplay trailer of their skill shot puzzle game, Hungribles. The game is slated for a Summer release on iPad and iPhone. Additionally, the company has finally revealed more details about its gameplay.
According to the press release, the aim of the game is to feed the Hungribles and make them happy. Hungribles are tiny creatures with massive appetites whose cravings are so powerful that they can pull food through the air and into their waiting mouths.
Players can achieve this by launching tasty orbs from a strange glowing mushroom slingshot. Each Hungrible’s appetite affects the path of the tasty orb as it flies across the screen. Feeding a Hungrible can also affect its behavior and the challenge comes from predicting the trajectory of each orb and figuring out the best feeding order.
Players can also earn score bonuses by bouncing orbs off walls, curving them around Hungribles or hitting the Pot of Gold. Moreover, perfectionists can try to achieve a three star rating on every level.
Compared to other physics-based puzzlers, in Hungribles there is more skill to aiming and the gravity inspired appetite effect is unique.
