Slip and slide through Spunk and Moxie, a puzzle-platformer for iOS.

Evil scientists are forever fiddling with secret formulas and tinctures, but they rarely get the first batch right. So what happens to the slop that gets rejected? Pouring it down the toilet is a popular option, but only until the authorities start getting reports about fish suddenly evolving optic lasers. Long-term storage is another option, but it doesn’t come without its risks—hence the plot driving Spunk and Moxie for iOS.

Spunk and Moxie is a 2D puzzle-platformer starring two globs of goo. Spunk and Moxie came into being as a result of a mad scientist’s attempt to create a potion that would give him super powers. When it failed, he left the batter to moulder in a warehouse. But instead of turning into toxic bricks, Spunk and Moxie gained sentience and broke out of their prison. Now they’re on the move.

Spunk and Moxie still need to escape the warehouse, and that’s where you come in. Using one-touch controls, the gooey heroes can bounce around and trip switches, collect gems, and utilize transport tubes that control a lot like the infamous barrel cannons from the classic SNES platformer, Donkey Kong Country.There are also traps galore, including pits, spikes, laser beams, and buzzsaws.

Spunk and Moxie

Spunk and Moxie can overcome most of what’s out to kill them by upgrading via hidden power-ups. If the duo lacks the, well, spunk to finish the jailbreak, you might find help through some unlockable characters. That beat-up red blob over there smells suspiciously like ground beef…

Spunk and Moxie hits iOS on February 21, and you’ll want to grab it fast.  The first player to get all 30 stars will win $1,000 in cash.  Check out full contest details at spunkandmoxie.com.
