SQUIDS Wild West Takes Players On A Cool Undersea Adventure This Summer
Get ready to fight oily crustaceans while riding a seahorse, but first, catch a sneak peak in the original SQUIDS.
The Game Bakers' SQUIDS is the coolest iOS title you've probably never heard of, yet it ranks right up there with the best the platform has to offer. Both charming and attractive, this fun undersea adventure has been downloaded over a million times since debuting October 2011, and went on to become the number one RPG in 65 countries. Between you and us, that's a big deal.
On that note, the studio plans to release the sequel, SQUIDS Wild West, later this summer for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
This time around, the band of unlikely and slippery looking heroes set off to protect their home from a band of annoying crustaceans while at the same time searching for a lost comrade. During the course of their adventure, they'll work alongside Calamary Jane to save a besieged town, wander through a dangerous mine and explore "native Squid lands".
Similar to the first game, you'll play using a slingshot mechanic, using environmental elements and Squid abilities to defeat bad guys...err...creatures. On top of that, you can ride seahorses. We're sold.
For now, there's a free update for the original SQUIDS that'll give you a taste of Wild West in the form of three unique missions that take place in Seawood. You'll run into a new hero by the name of Cleef, and square off against the humongous Buffalo Shrimp, which makes us all sorts of hungry. The DLC also comes with a new level cap, Game Center achievement and "enhanced social media functionality".
A hunch says this summer will be one of the hottest yet, so it's good to know we can cool off with this promising sequel. Stay tuned for more, and download SQUIDS using the link below.
