[prMac.com] Paris, France – French App Studio Appakabar is pleased to announce its new app game Katak. Katak is an addictive game where two people play face-to-face on the same device. Appakabar created this game to show how the iPad can entertain two people together. The idea of this board game is to use the iPad as a multi user device. Katak can entertain kids, families, friends, parties, long train rides… Simple controls make it fun for all ages.
Katak offers game play on 3 arenas. Appakabar loves nature, frogs, vegetation and beautiful landscapes. That’s why each stage has its own atmosphere, unique setting, specific insects and different strategy. All insects have chaotic paths, and require speed and dexterity to be grabbed. The landscapes are absolutely immersive, featuring HD graphics to take advantage of the iPad retina display.
Each player is a frog who has to catch insects with its tongue. The goal of the game is to earn more points than your opponent. The game is played by skillfully tapping in front of the frog to throw the tongue. The further you tap, the further the tongue goes. Each round lasts a limited time. The first frog to win 2 rounds wins the match. Bonuses and penalties make the game more complex. Butterflies poison the frogs temporarily: the tongue shrinks, control is reversed… Dragonflies boost the frogs: large tongue, kill all the bugs… When two or more bugs are grabbed at the same time, the combo multiplies the points.
Soft and clear ergonomics give the players all the information they need to evaluate their position in the game. Visual helpers can be turned on to guide the user: the direction of the tongue becomes visible. Katak provides a single player mode, with 3 difficulty levels of AI. The game also permits recording high scores.
