Quirky Puzzler King Oddball by 10Tons Ltd Hits PlayStation 3 Today

Quirky Puzzler King Oddball by 10Tons Ltd Hits PlayStation 3 Today 500°
4w ago - 10tons Ltd PR Coordinator Jaakko Maaniemi announced that their quirky puzzler King Oddball hits PlayStation 3 today!

To quote: Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's King Oddball! The quirky physics puzzler that has charmed gamers on PS4 and Vita is making its way to PS3 today. It comes with a free trial, so you should really check it out!

As the title suggests, King Oddball is a bit weird. It's a physics-based puzzle game, but not like any you've played before. The gameplay is intensely skill based, and executed entirely with a single button. Here's how it works:

The titular King Oddball swings a rock with his tongue, back and forth, like a pendulum. When you hit X, the rock is released. The rock will carry whatever momentum it had at the exact moment you hit the button, so depending on your timing you'll get a mighty hurl or a delicate drop.

From then on it's all about the physics. Will you overshoot the tank? Will you just miss the helicopter? Your timing needs to be very, very good. And that only takes you through the levels where you have a couple of enemies to crush.

When there's a lot of enemies or structures to destroy, you need to layer in the puzzle part. You will get an extra rock if you squash three or more enemies with a single rock, or if you bounce...

Video: 10Tons Ltd Announces King Oddball is Out Tomorrow on PS4 50°
47w ago - 10tons Ltd PR Coordinator Jaakko Maaniemi shared a video below today announcing that King Oddball is out tomorrow on PS4.

To quote: Hello readers - exciting times! It's been pretty frantic bringing King Oddball over to PS4 from PS Vita, but we're really happy to have it as our first PS4 release.

We can't wait to see how the game is received on the big screen.

I've covered the game pretty well on Playstation.Blog in earlier posts, so I'll shed some light on the various special level sets and how they came to be.

First, a quick recap: King Oddball is a skill-based, physics puzzler, where your goal is to clear the screen of enemies with three throwable rocks. So far so ordinary, but in King Oddball, you don't get to fling the rocks any way you please.




The King swings a rock back and forth like a pendulum, and the rock is released when you hit X. Gravity takes over, and you hit your target if your timing was good.

Accurate timing takes you only so far though, because soon enough you need to be strategizing about where the rock will bounce after the first, second, and even third impact. Tip: it's often good to start from the topmost targets, as the rock will fall down eventually,...
 

10tons Ltd Announces King Oddball Conquers PS4 on April 1st

10tons Ltd Announces King Oddball Conquers PS4 on April 1st 50°
49w ago - 10tons Ltd PR Coordinator Jaakko Maaniemi announced that King Oddball conquers PlayStation 4 on April 1st, 2014.

To quote: Hi PS4 gamers! I'm Jaakko from the Finnish game developer 10tons, and I've got some great news: Our fair studio is about to debut on PS4!

Our first PS4 title is a strange, skill-based physics puzzle called King Oddball. Some of you may know the game from its PS Vita version released in January. We have more great games for PS4 in production too, and we'll share more on those soon.

As far as physics-based puzzles go, King Oddball stands out quite distinctly. Few games feature a floating rock head with a ginormously long tongue as the main character. As eccentric as the theme may be, the game is decidedly straightforward. King Oddball is ending the world, and you're going to help him.

The gameplay is based on pressing a button at precisely the right moment. The King picks up a rock with his tongue and swings it back and forth like a pendulum. The rock is released when you hit X. It's not just a simple test of timing though: After the first few levels, you'll need to crush more enemies than you have rocks for.

That, in turn, requires careful strategy and anticipation of how the chain reactions will unfold. We've tuned the physics model to...
 

10Tons Ltd Announces King Oddball is Out Today on PlayStation Vita

10Tons Ltd Announces King Oddball is Out Today on PlayStation Vita 50°
56w ago - 10Tons Ltd PR Coordinator Jaakko Maaniemi announced that King Oddball is out today on PlayStation Vita with details below.

To quote: Hi, readers! 10tons is back this week with another PS Vita game - a unique and eccentric, skill-based puzzler called King Oddball.

As the title states, King Oddball is... unusual. Sure, the Angry Birds comparison comes to mind quickly, but King Oddball stands on its own handsomely.

Like Angry Birds, King Oddball is about clearing the level of enemies by squashing them with lobbed objects. And the way it's done is all about physics.

Unlike Angry Birds, King Oddball's levels fit in single screen, and there's (basically) only one kind of ammo to lob: rocks. And you don't get to throw them around any way you please, either.

Oh, no. The King automatically picks up the rocks and swings them back and forth by his tongue, and the player merely releases the rock by pressing X or tapping the screen. That's it.

It may sound easy, and it is... until it gets hard. It may also sound simple, and it is... until it gets complicated. The beauty of the gameplay mechanics lies in the fact that we've tightened the physics engine's precision screws as tight as they go.

That way we achieve accuracy and predictability with the...
