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.

Danish developers Bedtime Digital Games have announced that their surreal 3D puzzle game Back to Bed will arrive on iOS this August.

A Kickstarter success and multiple award winner back when it was a student project, the game is influenced by Salvador Dali, M.C. Escher, and David Lynch. It stars a man named Bob, who suffers from narcolepsy that gives him hallucinations and excessive daytime sleepiness and causing him to take surprise naps in dangerous places. You play as Bob’s subconscious protector, moving him around and manipulating illusion-filled levels to journey him back under his duvet, avoiding living man-holes, steep falls, and alarm clocks along the way.

Back to Bed will rub the sleep from its eyes and arrive on the App Store sometime this August.

A New Update Brings Achievements and More to Eliss Infinity

Posted by on June 30th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

A massive update for innovative puzzle game, Eliss Infinity, has just been released.

The game now offers Game Center achievements, an in-game counterpart to such achievements called Gems, immediate visual feedback to demonstrate when planets should be bigger or smaller, as well as visualization of recent supernovas.

Elsewhere, the difficulty curve has been smoothed out meaning things should start out a little easier for Eliss Infinity novices, plus the tutorial has been touched up and improved upon so things make more sense.

Already garnering 4.5 stars from us, Eliss Infinity just got even better. It’s out now and it’s priced at $2.99.
