Pocket Gamer Connects London 2017: Starbeard takes third place at The Very Big Indie Pitch

Call me beard - Starbeard

Summary News Review Screens Videos Articles Tips  
Product: Starbeard | Publisher:  | Genre: Puzzle
For: iPhone   Also on: iPad
 
After the most brilliant, and biggest, Very Big Indie Pitch yet, the marvelous Starbeard returned with a vengeance for the third time, securing itself third place at Pocket Gamer Connects London 2017. It's almost poetic, really. 



If it seems like deja-vu to some, that's because Leviathan Creative snagged third place at Apps World 2016's BIP as well, and we were just as impressed now as we were then.

In a way that actually makes match-three puzzlers feel fresh again, Starbeard features interesting mechanics in which you select, drag, and drop your chosen piece to match up with, or reveal, other stars of the same colour. Once these combine, you'll get a hero appear in their place, complete with special abilities. 

If you're not trying to get rid of boulders or compress matching stars into mythic beings, there're a bunch of different enemies for you to watch out for. Each of your heroes has a different power path, so you've got to chose your strategy wisely. Hesitate for too long, or make too many wrong moves, and the board will fill up/ If that happens, say goodbye to your satisfying win. 

Congratulations again to Starbeard for winning third place. I assure you, it's a game we're eagerly anticipating so we'll keep you updated when we know more details.
