Rack-Up on both Apple and Android app stores (Video)
Naked Penguin Boy release mobile game Rack Up, a new take on Qix.
Following up from the success of previous games “Dunky Dough Ball” and “Run the Joint”, London based digital agency Naked Penguin Boy launches mobile game “Rack-Up” on both Apple and Android app stores.
Rack Up is a take on the old Atari arcade classic Qix (pronounced “kicks”) where the objective is to claim a super majority of the playfield. In the original 1981 version the Qix, a stick like entity that would move unpredictably around the playing field destroying you if you came into contact with it.
Rack Up has changed this from one to four “Qix like” aliens, some predictable, some not. They spawn with different personalities and actions including Wall-Crawlers, Bouncers & Block-Eaters, and swipe fast to avoid them and see how many challenging levels you can get through. Combine these with the various Power-Ups and Rack-Up is compelling take on an old classic, where the slightest bit of action will keep you on the edge of your seat in this top new game.
In a nod to Tim Peake, Britain’s first astronaut to do a spacewalk from the ISS, and the British Space Industry, we have set players on a mission to reclaim the grid from aliens after a distress signal is sent out from British Space Station 404 and HMS Rack Up is sent in to battle the invaders.
Rack-Up is a truly unique, addictive puzzle game that is easy to pick up and play, with hours of enjoyment in struggling to get through the levels. Users are scored according to how much of the grid they clear each time, though a minimum of 80%.
“It’s an absorbing game that keeps you on the edge of your seat” says Rob Heasley, Creative Director at Naked Penguin Boy “and the feeling of satisfaction when you first get past level 20 is immense”
How far can you get, before they catch you?
