Tiny Utopia, indie developer of premium mobile applications and games, is pleased to announce the demo launch of Soda Star this weekend at SXSW gaming; a fast paced, action puzzle game due out next month for iOS and Android. Soda Star lets players control a out of control soda factory as they race to match various soda bottles in their packing crates before they are dropped or destroyed.
Soda Star is a competitive, single player puzzle experience where players square off for the best scores and flawless sorting by controlling multiple switch controls.
Tiny Utopia will be featuring Soda Star as a playable on floor demo at the Austin IGDA booth during SXSW gaming at the Palmer Events Center this Saturday March 9 and Sunday March 10. The game features stunning hand drawn animation special effects and original cartoon inspired 3D puzzle designs. Levels are navigated by a simple one-touch switch system, allowing players to act as the conductor for multiple interwinding tracks, diffuse destructive bombs, and open special gifts for secret items such as fruit, time-slowing cups of coffee and the legendary magic cola. As difficult progressed and new soda brands are added, the player faces increasingly more challenging micro managing to keep ever bottle in it’s correct crate. Each increasing challenge take place in 9 different progressive Soda levels.
