Herzeliya, Israel – NadNed Games, a new company in the mobile gaming arena, has released its first offering for the iOS family of devices – DuckTwist. In DuckTwist users control a cute little duck that walks on a narrow path, the duck is constantly walking forward while the user controls his direction by twisting his device in 360 degrees.
The game consists of 3 scenes each with 10 levels. As the user advances in a scene the levels become longer, narrower and more twisted. Each scene introduces an obstacle, for example, the second scene (fall) introduces the wind which pushes the duck off the path. Each level can be played in 3 difficulty levels that affect the duck’s walking speed.
In each level the user is given a certain amount of “lives” depending on the level’s difficulty. If the duck goes off the path and the user has more “lives” he can continue from the same point. If the user runs out of “lives” he can restart the level or purchase additional “lives” using coins. One “life” costs 10 coins. The user is given 50 coins when he installs the game. He can get an additional 50 coins for liking the DuckTwist page on Facebook. After that he can buy 50 coins for $0.99, 150 coins for $1.99 and 500 coins for $5.00.
The game includes beautiful prerendered graphics for the levels and cutscenes, a complete soundtrack and various sound effects to immerse the user in the experience.
This is NadNed Games’ first attempt at creating a video game, as CEO Udi Rubinstein says: “When you browse the App Store these days you can’t help but notice that most games are more of the same, so we really wanted to try and give the user a new and unique experience in DuckTwist. We chose to do so through the control scheme. We are not the first to offer a game that is controlled by rotating the device in 360 degrees, but those that do so are rare and have very different game mechanics. I’ve watched many people trying to play it for the first time, some figured it out right away while others needed a few tries, but all agreed it was fun and unique, I hope others will think the same”. The first version of the game was launched in mid April and the first update was released two weeks ago. The game was also made free to download after the update. The game is available on all App Stores world wide.
