Smash the Opposition with 'Conka' for iOS
SHEFFIELD, UK --(Business Wire)--
developed by Think
On!, launches today. A 21st century recreation of
the beloved British children's game, Conkers,
the game has players 'Conka the World' by defeating opponents and
exploring different environments including forests, beaches, and
snow-covered mountains. Mobile gamers ready for a virtual bout can
download Conka for free.
Conka introduces the world of Oblionka, where players compete in
a massive tournament to become the Conka Games Master. To win, they'll
need to unlock and conquer all five regions-Arbinka (forest), Glacinka
(ice), Plagonka (beach), Sablionka (desert), and Lunonka (space!)-and
beat the Champion that rules each region.
Much like the traditional British schoolyard game played with chestnuts,
players take turns smashing "Conkas" against each other. To strike,
players first tilt the device to align the crosshairs over the
opponent's Conka-followed by quickly tapping the screen when the
crosshairs shift to dark green. Skilled players are awarded with
critical hits that deal a near fatal blow to the opponent's health and
armor. The long journey to the top also includes special challenges, new
(unlockable) characters, hundreds of Conka accessories, and more.
"Conka is a very personal project for me. You could say that it's a
veiled attempt to bring back a time when a round of Conkers defined the
day's winners and losers." said Sean Maloney, Managing Director at
Think On!, the developer of Conka. "Nostalgia aside, Conka
is our way of paying homage to a brilliant schoolyard game that (thanks
to smartphones) can now be enjoyed by players of all ages, worldwide."
Key features include:
Conkers reimagined: The damage dealt to each Conka is a
combination of character armor, accuracy, and power.
Loyalty pays: Daly rewards for players who play every day.
Easy to smash, tough to crack: Daily practice improves aim and
yields critical hits. After each battle, players are rated in stars
based on performance.
Challenging boss fights: Each level includes a boss who must be
defeated in order to unlock new environments.
Engrossing story: Motion comics before each new environment
make the world of Conka come to life.
Friendly competition: Includes a multiplayer mode that makes
PVP combat (player versus player) easier than knocking on someone's
door on an autumn afternoon.
No hospital stays: A health timer shows how long a character
will take to return to 100 percent health.
Colorful environments: 5 beautiful worlds to explore and fight
Customized Conkas: Players can personalize characters in a
variety of ways with more than 120 accessories including hats,
glasses, weapons, and armor.
Talkative Conkas: More than 70 voices and plenty of attitude!
Share, Share, Share: Progress & achievements can be shared
online via Facebook (News - Alert) and Twitter.
Conka is free with in-app purchases. Players can acquire coin
packs, attribute boosts (health, power, armor, and accuracy), personal
items, and health restores-which are available via the virtual shop.
Coins can be earned in game or purchased with real currency.
