Poto & Cabenga – a man and his horse – are the two heroes of a new iPod app game (just launched today) that features the charming illustration work of Richard Hogg…
The idea and the game play is simple, yet challenging… just by tapping the screen you can make the characters jump, either to hit point-scoring targets or to avoid angry hedgehogs, giant caterpillary things and angry boars. But within a minute of playing, the two characters become separated and you have to control both characters at the same time. Tap the screen, they both jump… but will our two heroes ever be reunited?.
Poto & Cabenga is a collaboration between artist Richard Hogg and game developers Honeyslug. Originally made last year for the Gamma 4 one-button competition, it was one of the 6 winning games and was showcased at Games Developers Conference 2010.
It launched at midnight last night on Apple’s App Store. To find out more and to get the app, visit potoandcabenga.com
