Noodlecake is always working on something as they make their own in house items, as well as publish interesting indie titles. At GDC 2015, they had two new publishing efforts to show, while at the same time launched Rad Boarding. We’ll review Rad Boarding in a separate post as it launched this week, and for now focus on the two upcoming games Noodlecake was showing.
The first is Brickies, which provides a brick breaker set-up, but infused with a lot of subtle changes for a relatively fresh approach. The big difference is that each level is a time based challenge to try to clear all items within the time constraints. If you miss the ball with your paddle, you don’t lose a life, and instead the ball can’t do damage until you hit it again with your paddle. There are also a ton of power-ups that can be stacked for some great destruction. The bricks add in some challenge, as they move based on contact, and there are also boss battles to face. Brickies has some temporary art assets, but it should be coming relatively soon.
Tiltagon was the other game Noodlecake was showing, and it’s a quick action challenge revolving around tilt. The game is billed as Super Hexagon meets tilt, and the challenge is definitely there. Your goal is to roll a ball from hexagon platform to hexagon platform with each platform introducing a new challenge, and the previous hexagon is ready to disappear after a short period of time. Hexagons include enemies, holes in the center, peaks on the platform, and more that you need to face in quick succession. There’s also a constantly shifting road ahead as each new hexagon can appear on any of the six sides of the previous platform. Tiltagon should be coming in March with a new video ad style similar to Bitcoin Billionaire, where you watch ads to remove ads.
Brickies and Tiltagon both looked fun, and you can see them in action in our GDC preview video. Noodlecake also let us know that Super Stickman Golf 3 is indeed a real thing, and while there was nothing to show, the game will include a level editor.
