Freak Tower, From Puzzles and Dragons’ Developer, GungHo, Mixes Building With Defense

GungHo, the developer behind incredibly successful free-to-play game, Puzzles and Dragons, has a new game out. Titled Freak Tower, it is also a free-to-play game.

While it looks quite a bit like other tower building sims out there, Freak Tower also promises some interesting tower defense mechanics, as well, to liven things up.

Of course, when a studio that reported a $4.9 million daily average sales last quarter releases a new game, it’s probably time to try it out at least, right?

Some princesses are content to sit around and wait to be rescued. They don’t mind sitting in their tower/castle/fancy chair until a prince shows up to rescue them or sweep them off their feet. Princess Punt isn’t that type of girl. She goes out and does the looking for herself.

Trajectory-based games are nothing new to iOS devices, be they medieval, automotive or avian in nature. The practice of knocking down ramshackle structures with an odd assortment of objects is a popular one, but not many of them involve giving armored soldiers the boot. Much less booting them into all manner of large (and vicious) beasts. Different “weapons” have different effects that can be triggered when the screen is tapped, while shot placement (trajectory, strength, point of impact, etc.) can mean the difference between “teh phat lewtz” and utter failure. It’s a weird concept that seems just insane enough to be awesome.

But don’t take my word for it. Anyone looking to dropkick noblemen into scaly monstrosities can check out Princess Punt in the App Store right now for absolutely free.
