Celulo and Tiki Takoo - awesome HTML5 puzzle games for iOS!

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Sorry to start with a game showcase (well, actually two) on my first forum post, but I guess a lot of guys are looking at this forum to see what others are doing and so thought I'd jump right in!  B)

 

I'm posting on behalf of Wizcorp, a Tokyo-based startup specializing in the development of HTML5 mobile social games. We started life as a consultancy and have collaborated with some pretty big companies including GREE and Capcom, but recently decided to self-publish a couple of puzzle games which we developed for iOS as free-to-play titles on the App Store. 

 

And so without further ado, here they are:

 

Celulo is a challenging and addictive puzzle game in which players must link the titular Celulos in order to create a circuit connecting the sides of the board. The longer and more complex the circuit, the more points they are awarded.

Tiki Takoo - Paradise Island is a simple yet addictive puzzle game in which players must eradicate the colorful Bad Tikis by finding the sequence shown at the top of the screen. As the game progresses, the sequences become longer and tougher to find, and players can get bonus points by making combos, using Power-ups or activating Fever Mode.

In terms of the tech behind the games, both were created using a combination of HTML5 and a number of other tools. The core of the client was written in Canvas and accelerated by the Ejecta framework, giving the games superior reactivity and speed which we believe not only matches but exceeds that of many native apps. This was then wrapped in PhoneGap, enhanced by a handful of homemade and open-source plugins to offer functions such as in-app purchases, Facebook and GameCenter connectivity.

 

On the server side, we chose to use the Node.js platform coupled with Couchbase for data storage, both made easily programmable with the help of Wizcorp’s own proprietary server framework, MAGE.

 

Please take a look at the games and let us know what you think. I'll be happy to answer any questions you may have, technical or otherwise.

 

Cheers!

Mark

Nice and polished games :). Also interesting on the combination of Ejecta and PhoneGap. I've heard that PhoneGap results are pretty slow. It seems it doesn't occur to your games. :)
