Foodie Yama is a twitch-based F2P arcade game about being really greedy, coming to iOS on August 19th
Eat all of the food
| Foodie Yama
Greed is one of the seven deadly sins. It's for this reason that Foodie, the gluttonous green slime in Happymagenta's Foodie Yama, is punished.
While sitting atop his food mountain, some seismic activity opens up a large chasm right beneath him. Tragically, all of his food topples into this hole.
Your task, then, is to help Foodie navigate this dangerous pit and eat as much of his food as possible on the way down. He can't let it go to waste!
The result is a twitch-based arcade game. You tap the left and right of the screen to move Foodie to that side. The aim is to eat the food but avoid hitting the swords.
That would be easy, except Foodie dies of hunger really quickly. So you need to eat the food very fast. So, yep, Foodie Yama plays very much like Timberman.
You unlock new food to gobble up the further you go down. You start off with delicious bananas, but will find apples, candy, ice cream, and even a bonus egg plant.
Each one restores more of Foodies's declining health, making it easier to get a higher score. You still need skill to dominate the leaderboards, mind.
Each run ends the same way - in death. You start off with a bunch of lives but you only get a new one every few minutes.
Being a free to play game, Foodie Yama lets you purchase more lives through its IAPs. It's either that or you can wait it out.
This is the latest in Happymagenta's quickfire arcade games, following up Cargo King and Orbitum. The studio's bigger game, Joan Mad Run, recently lost out on funding over on Kickstarter.Foodie Yama will be coming to iOS tomorrow and will be free to download.
