Tasty Tadpoles has just been launched on the App Store today! Developed as a universal app for iOS devices by a ex-Firemint graphic designer, Mark White, the game is a casual stealth/puzzle game where you have to guide tiny tadpoles to their safety across three kinds of ponds and through seventy five levels. There are four characters to unlock, and fourteen challenges to take on, so there's certainly plenty of fun to be had...
Tasty Tadpoles is a deliciously addictive trial of survival, available for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. Dip your finger in to twist, turn and tap your tenacious tadpole through three puzzling ponds of peril!
You'll need fast fingers to flash past the fleet green tadpoles, a keen sense of cunning and craftiness to overcome the territorial yellow tadpoles along with tremendous timing and precision poking to swim under those tedious turtles. If push comes to shove you can always eliminate these eclectic enemies with the zap of an electric eel!
It's beautifully presented and Mark's excellent graphic design sensibilities and six years in the field certainly show through here. After Firemint were acquired by Electronic Arts, Mark migrated to another Melbourne studio, Millipede Creative (the developers behind Bullistic Unleashed), and worked on Tasty Tadpoles during his spare time for the last two years.
Mark is the latest in a growing list of former Firemint developers striking it out on their own including Logan Booker (Screwfly Studios), Murray Lorden (MUZBOZ), Ben Boersch and Stu Lloyd (Wizzle Wazzle), and of course, three former Firemint senior developers, Joshua Boggs, Adrian Moore, Ollie Browne (Loveshack Entertainment).
