Hands-On with the Adorable Meerkatz Challenge

Posted by Jennifer Allen on July 15th, 2014

Gamers from the 1990s should fondly remember Lemmings. Adorable yet dimwitted, they were a little too keen to jump off cliffs meaning it was down to you to figure out how to stop them doing exactly that. It was a fun puzzle game full of different tools to persuade the lemmings not to jump.

Kind of like that but with Meerkats, comes Meerkatz Challenge - a game set for release in a little over a week's time. The game will be immediately familiar to fans of Lemmings and in a very positive kind of way.


This time round, it's the meerkats that have a death wish and there's a different bevy of tools to keep them safe. There's the typical blocker tool but there's also the ability to use a mushroom as a giant trampoline, propelling the other meerkats skyward. A trainer meerkat encourages the others to run at speed, making it possible to get across huge gaps when combined with a mushroom spring. A blower type will keep meerkats in the air, safe from danger.

We got the chance to briefly check out Meerkatz Challenge and it's looking pretty entertaining. It offers the same vibe as Lemmings but with its own bunch of tools to keep things original. Controls are tight and effective with the option to speed things along as and when needed. Simple taps cause you to choose which tool to use and it takes seconds to master. Even in the early stages though, some careful thinking is required to get past the stage. Up to three stars can be gained depending on how successfully you completed the stage and how many meerkats you managed to save in the process.


Graphically, Meerkatz Challenge isn't going to wow audiences but it certainly offers a pleasant charm, ensuring you'll be attached to these cuddly critters.

With 4 different areas to explore and plenty of levels to negotiate, Meerkatz Challenge is shaping up to be pretty interesting.

We'll talk more about it next week, when it's released on July 24.

Adorable Meerkatz Challenge set to Entertain and Entrance Later this Summer

Posted by Jennifer Allen on July 3rd, 2014

Later this month you'll be able to enjoy the pleasures of Meerkatz Challenge, a puzzle platformer that seems rather reminiscent of the classic puzzle game, Lemmings.

Players must help guide a mob of meerkats as they attempt to travel the world in search of peace and tranquility. Digging, jumping, climbing, and many more activities will be involved when it comes to keeping the cute animals safe.

Set for release July 24, we'll be sure to keep you in the loop regarding its development.

In the meantime, check out the cute gameplay trailer below.

Thinking outside the box may not be a neanderthal's strong suit. Luckily the player is there to do the thinking for them.

Caveman Review

[rating:overall]

Lemmings fans can finally rejoice… well almost. While Caveman isn’t exactly the same game, it’s pretty darn close. It’s possibly the closest gamers will get to playing Lemmings on an iOS device unless Sony actually does their own conversion.

Mobile 1UP had originally planned to bring the Lemmings game to iOS, but unfortunately a Cease & Desist Order from Sony Entertainment put a damper on things. The developers didn’t let this stop them, though, and worked hard to bring users a new game based on the original known as Caveman.

Anyone who isn’t familiar with Lemmings has missed out on possibly one of the most awesome computer games released in the ‘90s. In both Lemmings and Caveman, the game is divided into a number of levels that are grouped into four different difficulty levels. Each level has an entry point and an exit point.

There are different land elements in each level. Some elements are destructible while others are not. There are also obstacles along the way like water, holes and lava. The goal on each level is to guide the required percentage of Cavemen from the entrance to the exit in a set amount of time by creating a safe passage for them. Gamers do this by assigning a task to each Caveman or else they will walk in one direction and ignore everything in the way. The mindless characters die by falling from a great height, burn in lava or find another way to die or get trapped unless gamers guide them to safety.

In order to successfully beat a level, gamers must assign tasks to the Cavemen. The tasks are located at the bottom of the screen and there are only a set number that players can use. There are eight tasks that must be assigned carefully: climber, floater, bomber, blocker, builder, basher, miner and digger. Failure to assign tasks properly will result in having to restart the level. Instead of restarting a level by pushing a button, gamers will have to use sudden death to make them all blow up.

There are a few perks that fans of the original game will enjoy such as the ability to assign skills exclusively to Cavemen, the option to zoom in and out of a level, a release rate to increase or decrease how fast the Cavemen enter the level, three assignment options, secret timewarp codes and four unlockable difficulty levels: easy, medium, obscure and insane.

As a huge fan of the original Lemmings game, I can vouch that Caveman is the next best thing. While the “Let’s Go” and squeaky sounds have been replaced with Cavemen grunts, it’s still pretty fun to blow them up. The only recommendation that I can make is that the controls need tightening as it’s easy to accidentally assign tasks. Overall, I highly recommend this game to everyone looking to relive a piece of their childhood. Be sure to check out Caveman HD for the iPad and Caveman Lite.

TipTop requires you to guide a band of brave (but stupid) adventurers on their quest to save the world. The game is fast-paced and quickly becomes chaotic, and features super-intuitive controls. If you're looking for a fast-paced action/puzzle mix, TipTop
