To-Fu: The Trials of Chi is a new iOS action-puzzler game from HotGen studios due for release on May 26. The game features a one-of-a-kind touchscreen mechanic that enables you to stretch and â€œpingâ€ the courageous To-Fu through each of the 100 levels. The 100 trials feature an abundance of obstacles, such as crumbling blocks, conveyor belts, slippery glass and metal plates, as well as a host of treacherous booby traps such as circular saws, spikes, lasers, teleports, and rotating platforms. Each of the 100 trials also has a unique challenge, such as performing the â€œUltimate Ping,â€ by flinging To-Fu towards the Fortune Kitty with just one ping.
The gameâ€™s control system is simplicity itself, negating the need for onscreen buttons â€“ all you have to do is grab To-Fu with your finger and drag him to stretch him and then release him to ping him forward. To-Fu will then stick to almost any surface.
The playerâ€™s main objective in the game is simply to reach the mystical Fortune Kitty, but thereâ€™s also the optional challenge of collecting the gameâ€™s 300 emblems. Looks like a very addictive puzzle game, with an unusual vegan hero!
Update: I got the chance to play To-Fu: The Trials of Chi today and it really is as addictive and fun as it looks. Definitely has that "one more go" factor.
