Play an early alpha web preview of Phil the Pill. Right now!!!
Bug Carnage!
Description
Bomberman Meets Pacman with a touch of Stink

The beautiful and serene town of Pillville has been overtaken by Hank the Stank (a nasty old stink bug) and his Stenchlings. It's up to Phil the Pill to save Princess Polycorn and restore Pillville to its former serenity.

Phil the Pill is a top down action-puzzle game that challenges you to find your way through a series of mazes without getting taken out by hazards, traps and enemies. Like any good roly poly, the main character, Phil's– main mode of transportation is rolling. When Phil stops he stands upright and has the ability to punch or fire a weapon if he’s carrying one. Various walls in the mazes have different strength properties that require different weapons to break on through. As you progress through the 4 worlds, you will encounter all manner of puzzles, enemies and hazards. A creeping cloud of stench will keep you on your toes as you try to determine the best way through each maze.

Features
  • 4 unique worlds with 27 levels each (A total of 108 challenging levels!)
  • New enemies, puzzles and hazards introduced in each world
  • Character Upgrades
  • Beautiful and quirky original instrumental soundtrack and animations
We have been developing this game in Unity for tablets and mobile, but all along have been testing it on desktop due to quicker build/test cycles. Shortly into development we realized that it was just as fun and challenging on desktop as it was on mobile so we would love to finish development for Mac PC and Linux. Some of the biggest changes would be supporting full widescreen vs. portrait gameplay and controller support.

If you like what you see, please come help us finish Phil the Pill by donating on Kickstarter! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/curiousmedia/phil-the-pill

You should at least disguise the fact that it was made for mobile, that way it just looks like an half-assed money-grabby port.
