Description

The Bait is a fun mobile game where the player tries to avoid fish attacks for as long as possible. The main character,Buffy the turtle, has lucked out and finds himself hanging from a rope about to be eaten by fish. To avoid the fish attacks, Buffy gets to swing the rope left or right but has to be careful so as not to run out of stamina. Fortunately, coins pop out of the sea from time to time and these can be used to improve Buffy's abilities such as his stamina regeneration or the number of fish attacks he can withstand. For some extra fun the player can visit the shop to buy new outfits for Buffy. Finally, the game features online leaderboards with Facebook integration so that the player can compete with the best players from around the world.

History

The Bait is TokaLoka's first game. It was created to test the water(pun intended) and get our creativity as a team rolling. Our goal was to create a quick competitive game that the players could play throughtout the day on their mobile phones. The game grew a little bit in scope and in the end we added a lot more in terms of social features and in-game shop items than was originally planned.

Game Features

  • Become the bait in this intense survival adventure.
  • Swing on the rope and dodge as many fish attacks as you can.
  • Use your stamina wisely or soon you will become a dangling shell.
  • Overcome your fears and collect the magic coins to improve your skills overtime.
  • Join the leaderboards and compete with the best from around the world. How long can you survive?
  • Above all, beware of The Great White...
