Gamers get ready for the Knight of their lives with this innovative physics-based platform puzzler
London, UK – 28th August 2014 – Independent Game Developer 232 Studios (http://232studios.com) today launched Epic Eric (http://epicericgame.com), its highly anticipated new platform puzzler exclusively on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. Designed and developed solely by Neil Glenister, the game features the noble knight Epic Eric as he tries to rescue his one true love Princess Erica from her lonely prison tower. And for players less inclined to adhere to fairy tale norms, Epic Eric also lets gamers play as Princess Erica, with the roles of rescuer and rescuee reversed.
The game couples innovative physics-based gameplay with highly accessible one-touch controls, and was named by mobile game review site Pocket Gamer as one of its ‘Top 50 most anticipated games of 2014’.
Playing as either Eric or Erica, gamers must swing their way across a series of increasingly difficult challenges to collect all the stars on each level and free their one true love. Each level has multiple solutions as players swing, flip, bounce and slide their way to victory. Epic Eric features 45 levels set across three different gameplay environments, and also boasts a variety of hidden features, easter eggs and unlockables. As well as successfully completing each level, players can complete 21 quirky challenges including the ‘Top Gun Maverick’ award for flying over the princess tower whilst upside-down, and the ‘Chuck Norris’ award for surviving a fall.
