Koi – Journey of Purity is a beautiful adventure with a meaningful story [Sponsored]

Koi – Journey of Purity is a beautiful exploration adventure with a deep and meaningful story lurking under the surface.

You play as a group of koi who are trying to purify the lake they call their home by solving a number of puzzles and navigating the environment.

But there’s more to it than that – this is a story about taking care of the environment. An issue that developer Dotoyou feels strongly about.

Zhou Quan, Creative Director at Dotoyou, believes that this story, combined with the wide variety of puzzles and the beautiful visuals, really sets Koi – Journey of Purity apart from its App Store and Google Play competitors.

Quan: “The unique feature of the game is a complete special experience, with simple graphics, fresh music, and rich content to explore.

“It has a complete story, which is unfolded through progress of the game. The variety of puzzle designs puts you right in the game, and enables you to enjoy challenges and success.”

Koi – Journey of Purity is a minimal game with a surprising amount of depth but getting it to that stage was quite the challenge, according to Quan.

Quan: “The greatest challenge during development was how to simplify the game. We wrote a story and kept adding content.

“However, we later realized that too much content would distract players, or make them confused.

“Moreover, a long game would disrupt players’ emotional experi…

Help a koi purify its watery home in Koi – Journey of Purity out now on iOS and tomorrow on Android

Koi – Journey of Purity is a relaxing exploration adventure that tasks you with helping a little fish to purify its watery home.

It’s absolutely breathtaking though, with visuals inspired by both classic Chinese art and cartoons.

The attention to detail is the most impressive aspect of the visual design though. You’ll see gatherings of fish playing together, flowers blooming right in front of you, and frogs hopping between lotus leaves.

Controlling the koi is simple, and requires only a tap or swipe to direct it where you want it to go.

Your journey will take you from humble beginnings in a lotus-covered pond and across a raging storm as you try to assist the fish in purifying its home.

On the way you’ll have to collect items and use them to solve puzzles, as well as navigate obstacles.

The journey is just as important as the end result though, and you’ll want to take the time to appreciate your surroundings and explore every nook and cranny.

Koi – Journey of Purity has already been featured in the App Store in over 100 countries since launch and was nominated for the 2015 GDC IMGA for Best Upcoming Game well before that.

To see this wonderful game for yourself, head on over to the App Store [download] or wait for it to launch on Google Play tomorrow.

Journey to a magical 10th-century kingdom and thwart goblins and dragons in tower defence title Toy Defense 3: Fantasy [Sponsored]

If you’re a massive fan of strategy titles and you download tower defence games from the App Store on a regular basis, there’s a very good chance that you’re already more than familiar with the Toy Defense series.

More than 15 million gamers from around the world have played at least one of the franchise’s instalments, after all.

Anyway. Melesta Games have recently released a third entry in the popular series, and it represents a slight deviation from its two predecessors.

Unlike Toy Defense and Toy Defense 2, which feature battles from World War I and World War II, respectively, Toy Defense 3: Fantasy is set in a magical 10th-century fantasy kingdom that’s filled to the brim with pesky green goblins and mighty dragons.

Playing as a Richard the Lionheart-esque commander in Toy Defense 3: Fantasy, you have to recruit and train a fierce army of wizards, archers, and healers that are capable of taking down waves of invading trolls and mercenaries.

Naturally, there’s lots of strategy involved in Toy Defense 3: Fantasy. You can upgrade your veteran warriors during battle and improve their abilities, for example. Furthermore, you can utilise six different tower power-ups, which enable you to develop unique and – hopefully – impenetrable defences.

And here’s a tip straight from the horse’s (yes, Melesta’s)…
