If the hilariously crafted game title haven’t caught your attention yet, I hope the rest of this article will. Take a walk on the wild side as this new tile-dragging puzzle action game dashes out onto your Mac, PC, iPhone and even your iPad.
Arges Systems is an indie development micro studio with a passion to create inventive new gameplay experiences, today they announced the launch of what they call “fiendishly difficult” debut puzzle action game Hairy Tales that is now available on digital download service Desura. Hairy Tales is also available via the App Store on all iOS devices and even the Mac Store. But what is Hairy Tales really about and why are they calling it “fiendishly difficult”?
Hairy Tales blends fast furious action with tile-dragging puzzle mechanics starring the Hairys, an excited group of fairy folks who are eager to clear their world of corruption that they simply don’t watch where they’re going. Hairy Tales features 72 deviously animated levels split across three distinctive worlds, players must simultaneously save the Hairys from falling off the edge of the world by re-arraging the tiles on each level whilst acquiring power ups, magic mushrooms and destroying evil enemy Kikimoras and their three powerful end bosses.
If you are thinking “Lemmings” you are on the right track! Hairy Tales is influenced by Slavic mythology and classic platform games such as Lemmings but what makes Hairy Tales unique on its own “is a dynamic, free flowing tactical puzzler that is simple to learn but difficult to master”, said Ricardo J. Mendez, Director of Arges Systems, “As difficulty ramps up through later levels, players will need to discover new ingenious ways to get the Hairys to safety”.
Hairy Tales includes an easy to understand tutorial that lead players through the initial levels. Each stage offers multiple solutions allowing players to flex their brain muscles and exercise their creativity. While initial levels can be configured before the Hairy starts running, later stages include multiple tile types, ranging from helpful teleporters to deadly spikes that require the player to quickly react by re-arranging items including cannons and traps during the Hairys run.
Hairy Tales will be available on the Mac Store and Desura (for PC) for 5 EUR ($6.35), and is available on the App Store for an introductory rate of 0.99 EUR ($1.26)
