[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom – Fumb Games Ltd., a new UK-based games studio, today is proud to announce the release of Crossbar Challenge ’17 (v2.1), their debut mobile game for both iOS and Android devices. Crossbar Challenge ’17 mixes the shooting mechanics of Paper Toss with the character and item collectible aspects of alternative popular mobile games. The player must swipe up to kick the ball and hit the crossbar as many times as they can.
Successful hits of the crossbar rewards the player with “Stars” which allows them to unlock 40+ new characters and balls that change the game in some way, similar to the selectable in Crossy Road. Some examples include exploding mega-chickens that land on the crossbar, kick-able poops that splat on impact, and a Farmer that covers the entire stadium in moo-ing cows.
There are four different stages to play at launch: Stadium, Rio, Playground and Mars. The art style has a consistent retro pixel-cartoon feel and is reminiscent of games from previous decades. Features include:
* Easy to play, tricky to master
* 40+ unlockables including characters, balls or stadiums
* Retro pixel art-style
* Global leaderboards and achievements
* Offline friendly
“Well, the idea was to take a super-simple concept and overlay it with a ton of silly surprises for the player” says Paul West, founder of London based Fumb Games. “We’ve certainly put in some crazy, and sometimes stupid, unlockables. I basically gave the artist all of these stupid ideas, and he somehow made them look really cool. What other game lets you kick a chicken playing as a tiny flea with a streaker running in the background? He’s pixelated, don’t worry. My personal favourite is Mr. P – a pug dressed like Mr. T.”
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 7.0 or later
* 96.8 MB
