Unique Retro Platformer Tomb Of The Mask Slides Onto Android
Following its release on iOS last year the clever swipe based platformer Tomb Of The Mask has made the trek over onto Android devices. This fantastic retro themed survival game from indie developer Happymagenta feels like a cross between Pac-Man and Downwell as players bound from wall to wall munching on dots and evading ever more perilous attacks from a horde of pixel monsters. It’s up to players to survive the tomb for as long as possible by deftly sliding upwards out of danger while taking care to avoid a host of deadly traps lying in wait.
Players move their intrepid explorer by swiping on the screen to have him rocket across the stage in 4 different directions. While players can maneuver about as fast as they can swipe, which is oftentimes necessary to outrun the rapidly rising wall of death, they’ll need to take their environment into account so as not to inadvertently slam right into the path of an oncoming enemy or a hidden array of spikes. There are a wide variety of power ups and characters to unlock which in combination with Tomb Of The Mask’s addicting game mechanics provides for a great deal of replayability. Platforming connoisseurs will have a blast with this clever and highly polished take on the genre.
Tomb Of The Mask is free to download on Android and iOS.
