Smash hit will be a free to play game, but there is no reason to frown at it.
“The IAP unlocks the ability to start from checkpoints. But its possible to play the entire game without them,” Mediocre said. “Its an attempt to still do a premium game, but one that is accessible for everyone. No ads, no crazy monetization.”
This sounds like a delightful IAP system, even better than the ones we have seen in Hexage’s Reaper, since you can play through the entire game without spending a dime.
Smash Hit uses a brand new physics engine, and allows players on a journey through a surreal space-time dimension, where you throw metal marbles to smash glass objects. The graphics in the video below show stunning footage of glass destruction and some cool music too.
- Explore 50 different rooms with 11 different graphic styles. Smash Hit sports as much glass variety as diverse as a Tiffany lamp!
- Hear environmental audio effects, including reverb, echoes, and other effects adapted to each area, adding a touch of sci-fact to the sci-fi world.
- Experience musically synchronized gameplay with music changing not only to suit each stage, but also orchestrate glass object movement.
- Enjoy randomized levels for increased replayability.
The press release mentions iCloud Support for device sync, and iOS Game Center support for leaderboards and achievements. So the game could include Google Play Services as well.
