The indie zone - a chance to try out some of the quirkier games before they are available to buy and then chat with the developers, give feedback on the game and maybe even make some suggestions that might find their way into the final release of the game. Here are the details of the indie games we've lined up for you at PLAY Expo Blackpool this year.
Space Toads Mayhem (Lukasz Snopkiewicz)
Space Toads Mayhem is an arcade-style, topdown shooter paying homage to classics from the 1980s - some say it tastes like arcade-flavoured ice cream with laser blast sprinkles. It's a challenging, reflex-based game, rewarding a player who enjoys fast-paced action and can utilise enemy behaviour to his / her advantage.
MaoMao Castle (Asobi.tech)
Help MaoMao the Cat-Dragon make it back to his castle, avoid obstacles, collect rainbows, and rack up points. Speed dash to crash through trees, pillars, and moai, as you fly around trying not to lose one of your 9 lives. Perform deft manoeuvres by gliding your finger across the glass of your mobile device, or waving your hand over the LEAP Motion Controller.
