Nitrome, the creator of the popular app Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage, released today their latest arcade puzzle game 8bit Doves on the App Store worldwide, earlier than the crowd set to launch midnight.
In 8bit Doves players control a slumbering man to fly through a hazardous world conjured up in his dream. With simple and intuitive two-button controls, players lead this dreamer to navigate through a series of obstacles and traps like moving walls and speed-boost zones of different stages to find and reach the exit. During the adventure, players can also gather little doves to gain extra bonus bragging rights in the GameCenter. It is in the same vein with Floppy Bird but with significant differences in the core maze design as well as artwork to be a unique and fun arcade game of its own.
As the title implies, 8bit Doves features a great pixel art style and a beautifully depicted dream world of only four colors. And it contains three level packs at launch, casting the dream-walker into Sweet Dreams, Deep Sleep and Nightmare procedurally.
8bit Doves is easy to learn and challenging to master with certain depth to keep players occupied for long. It is a full-priced title available now on iPhone and iPad for $2.99, with no in-app purchase. [App Store Link]
