Okay, first of all, “Hope This Works Games” is a great name for a developer/publisher. We hope it works for them. What’s more, the developer/publisher/TriplePoint client has a new game they’d like us to take a look at (and they hope it works), entitled Polara. Near as we can tell, it’s Canabalt meets Ikaruga meets iOS, and it looks insane. Insane in a great way and we really, really hope it works.
You know how in Ikaruga, you need to change the colors every so often, because — and then how you have to jump over pretty obstacles in Canabalt, and — you know what, I can’t even explain this. Just look.
You see that? Good lord. That looks like pure absurdity, and it’s got boss fights and a story line. Whether the story line is also colored red and blue, we don’t know.
Keep an eye on this one.
