Description

WARNING: HAND COLLISION IMMINENT — Bloop is a fast, frantic touch game for iPad designed by Rusty Moyher. Two, three, or four players race to tap the most tiles...at the same time! Easy at first, but soon the tiles shrink. Hands collide. Fingers cross. Fireworks! Each color plays a unique BLOOP sound. Hear your symphonic success or dissonant disaster. As players push their way to victory, this onomatopoeic adventure becomes a hilarious party game.

History

To break from a more complex game, Rusty created a tabletop hand frenzy for iPad called Bloop. The simple, engaging design of Bloop lead to a finalist spot at IndieCade 2012. In August 2013, Bloop was ported to Android by Noodlecake Studios.

Features

  • Hand-smashing four-player action.
  • Unique sound for each color.
  • Three retro audio options.
  • Party perfect.
  • Game Center leaderboard: Compete for the most Bloops worldwide.
