Attack of the Spooklings

JohnBEver wanted to combine Fruit Ninja with Space Invaders? P�caro Game Studio did, and so the team set to work to build Attack of the Spooklings, a game of endless fence protecting and enemy slashing. Attack of the Spooklings sends waves of enemies after you, and your only defense is to swipe like your life depended on it. Because it kinda does. Your virtual life, anyway.

Attack of the SpooklingsSpooklings are these squishy, toothy creatures who are good at one thing: swarming. Fortunately they're not too tough, and to knock them off this mortal coil all you have to do is swipe the screen. If a single one makes it to the wall at the bottom, it's game over. Spooklings like to attack in formations with the occasional one running off on its own. The key to getting a good score is swiping with long gestures to create combos, taking out entire groups with a single move. It also makes you feel like some sort of superhero whose power is being really good at drawing lines. Gotta start somewhere, right?

Patterns in Attack of the Spooklings get increasingly more complex, bumping up the challenge the longer you survive. The sheer number of foes also increases as you progress through the waves. It's a simple game, but the combination of pattern recognition and quick-fire swiping gives it that special something that makes you want to come back for more.

NOTE: This game was played and reviewed on the iPad 3. Game was available in the North American market at the time of publication, but may not be available in other territories. Please see individual app market pages for purchasing info.
