Square Enix Ltd. today announces SolaRola, the award-winning physics-based puzzle platformer, is coming soon to iOS and Android.
SolaRola for smartphones and tablets has been fully redeveloped to offer players brand new cartoon-style graphics and storyline, and an enjoyable, intuitive touch and tilt-based control system. Originally launched on Java in 2007, SolaRola is one of only a handful of games to secure a perfect 10 score and Platinum Award from Pocket Gamer.
SolaRola stars Wiz and Waz, the game's blob-like gung-ho duo, tasked with bouncing across a number of planets with the ultimate aim of saving the galaxy. Using whatever comes to hand, the daring pairing must thwart the plans of their nemesis, Ping the Unmerciless and release the four guardians of SolaRola's universe.
With each planet inhabited by all manner of enemies and hazards, the player must navigate Wiz and Waz across a number of ill-positioned obstacles including rocks, slime, bombs and trampolines. Both are susceptible to the planets' gravity, so items must be strategically placed to guide them past the many obstructions and creatures that patrol the environments. As the game progresses, so the creatures get more aggressive, while the addition of volcanic worlds and razor-sharp hazards are a constant threat to the future of blobkind.
