Owls – Available now for the iPad & Nook

Equal parts education and entertainment, Owls is a fun matching game for children of all ages.

The Parliament School for Owls is very serious about the Buddy System. Every Owl has a buddy, and is not allowed to come in from recess without them. Your job is to help the Owls find their buddy and get in for lunch! Learn about Owls, watch the seasons change and see how quickly you can send the Owls home. Can you earn 3 stars in every level?

In Owls, children match random pairs of owls to clear the screen. After successfully completing each level, they are rewarded with a little fact about owls. Every 25 levels the seasons change from Spring to Summer, Fall and Winter. They can earn up to 3 stars per level depending on how quickly they clear the screen, and go back as many times as they wish to retry.

Features:
* 999 Random Levels
* 30 Different Owls
* 40 Different backgrounds showing all 4 seasons
* Fun facts about Owls after every level
* 22 Game Center Achievements
* Game Center Leader boards
* Bright and Fun music

This app contains no advertisements, in-app purchases or outside links of any kind. When playing this game, children stay in the game.

Owls – A matching game for kids!

I’m finally ready to take the wraps off a matching game I’ve been working on for the past few mths. It’s called Owls, and it’s coming to the iPad, Kindle Fire and Nook, hopefully in the next week or so.

There are 999 levels, and each one is randomly designed, from the owl types to their destination. In any given level, there are 13 different owl pairs on the screen (out of 30), going to 26 different locations.

The official page for the app is also available over here.

Hopefully the game does well, my 15 mth old daughter loves the images so that’s something :)

Reviews

Not many mobile or tablet games actually evoke an emotional response, but this game does.

– The Smart Phone App Review

A Long Way Home has all the hallmarks for an indie sleeper hit on the iPad.

– Pocket Gamer

Only a handful of games for the iPad can produce an emotional response, as A Long Way Home did for me. I hope it can do the same for you.

If you’re up for patient, thoughtful gameplay that makes for an evocative experience, you should give A Long Way Home a shot.

Coming soon to iPhone / iPod Touch

Both of my previous iPad only games, Obliteration HD and A Long Way Home, are coming to the iPhone and iPod touch this month! I wrapped up converting Obliteration HD last night, and A Long Way Home should be completed this week. Both games should be available in the App Store for only $.99 later this month.

Once this process is complete, I will be attempting to get them published to the Android Market.

A Long Way Home (Mac) Lost Progress Fix

If you lost the progress of your game after the 1.2 update, here’s a quick fix:

The new version looks in:
/Users//Library/Application Support/A Long Way Home/save.data

The old version used:
/Users//Library/Application Support/Long Way Home/save.data

If you copy the “Long Way Home/save.data” to the new location it’ll restore your progress.

Thanks to errol for pointing that out.
