Hands-On Mobile Puts Raw Fish in Your Hands
Roll, roll, roll your roll.
Hands-On-Mobile has just launched Sushi Mania on mobile phones across Europe and North America as part of their "Best of Korea" program, which showcases some of the more interesting offerings from the Korean mobile games market including Heroes Lore: Wind of Solita, a surprisingly complete RPG experience that took its cues from many of the classic games of the 8-bit and early 16-bit eras.
Contrary to what its name would suggest, Sushi Mania is not a cooking game; rather, it's a maze-based platformer that has you leading one of 12 selectable sushi chefs in their search to find their missing ingredients and a group of kidnapped chefs. Instead of just running and jumping like most games, however, players will have to guide a roll of sushi along with them as they move through the levels. As they progress, additional sushi rolls can be unlocked that provide added abilities like high jumping. Other than that, all the usual platforming staples are present: deadly creatures, block breaking and collecting coins; however, as an added bonus, these coins will unlock hidden levels and mini-games.
"Sushi Mania is a perfect example of why we established the 'Best of Korea' program. This combination of bite-sized, fun game play and cute characters will appeal to a wide audience; it is a great mobile game and is receiving rave reviews," said Michael Temkin, CTO and EVP of Operations, Hands-On Mobile. "We are looking forward to bringing more hit games from Korea to Europe and the US."
