Gua-Le-Ni by Double Jungle
Gua-Le-Ni is an innovative action-puzzle videogame with a philosophical twist!
Taking inspiration from an essay of David Hume’s the game prompts the player categorize and feed an odd series of combinatorial beasts that will walk their ways across the screen. This can be achieved by twisting, moving and rearranging toy-blocks to form the correct “name” of the animals. For example, a TI-STER-STER is a beast composed by three modules: a tiger’s head and two lobster body parts. Some animals prefer fruits, some meat and it’s up to you to feed them the right food. Different food combination lead to different effects that can render the beasts longer, shorter, more or less fast and valuable.
Beyond the core gameplay lies the original presentation: the art style and the theme of the game: a crazy, impossible bestiary lies on the desk-top of an old, ridiculously obsessed taxonomist.
The game supports Game Center for achievements and two leaderbords. At 2.99 the price is a little steep, but easy to justify when you realize there is absolutely nothing else like this on the App Store.
