Little Geek is an iOS developer based in Auckland. Their first title, an addictive little arcade puzzler called TrapIt, hit the App Store at the end of March this year.
In the developer's own words TrapIt is a casual-arcade title: casual, meaning "super simple to learn to play"; the arcade element comes from the fast and furious action that will "have your blood pressure rising and fingers swiping like crazy".
I've had many a fun blast on the game so far and can vouch for the addictiveness and arcadey action. Here's a description of the game from the Little Geek blog:
Each level starts with a number of “prisms” moving around the screen. Your objective is to get each of the prisms into an area isolated from each other. This you do by swiping to build walls to separate them. Once you have all prisms isolated, the level finishes and the next level starts. More and more prisms are added as you progress, making it harder and harder to finish within the allotted time. This is made even more difficult because TrapIt never lets up. There is no real break between levels other than a short display of your level bonuses. After that you are whisked into the next level automatically and your time starts counting down immediately.
There's some real satisfaction in filling in a large block of the screen and I found myself getting really frustrated (in that good "one more turn..." kind of way) every time I ran out of time cos I'd been spending too long trying to wring those few extra points from gaining more screen real estate!
If you've got an iPhone, check it out - at the excellent price of $1.29 (NZD) it's a great deal for the amount of fun you'll get from it!
