Inzenâ€™s first mobile game was an innovative top-down shooter called Dark Dot. It saw you arranging a squad of blobs into formation by drawing a shape on the screen, and then sending this formation into battle, rotating and resizing it at will.
We loved Dark Dot, and weâ€™re excited to reveal that Inzen has just released a follow-up that looks even more imaginative, adorable, and fun.
Star Tap is one of those clicker games that manage to be hyper-addictive despite involving nothing more taxing that prodding the screen as quickly as you can.
You play as Stella, a red-haired woman who takes off in a shuttle to explore and learn about the universe, fulfilling a mysterious promise. The adventure takes her to real planets, galaxies, and constellations.
As you tap you amass units of distance, plunging you deeper into the universe. Youâ€™ll also earn the ability to upgrade your shuttle to increase your rate of progress, and build drones to collect resources.
The result is a hyper-addictive feedback loop that taps directly into the pleasure centre of your brain: go fast, unlock new abilities, go faster, unlock even better new abilities, go even faster, and so on.
When you get right down to it, clickers are about exponential growth, and thereâ€™s no better place to exponentially grow in than outer space.
We know the gameplay works, because weâ€™ve played lots of clickers before and we love them. But the thing thatâ€™s really making us excited to play Star Tap is the visual style and the promise of exploration and mystery.
Star Tap has a gorgeous aesthetic and seems to offer a richer and more nuanced take on the clicker genre than weâ€™ve seen before.
