Lumiappaday #44: Tentacles demoed on the Nokia Lumia 800 #XboxLive

| December 30, 2011 | 4 Replies

You are a tentacled being and you have to navigate through the guts of Dr Phluff. Pretty neat gameplay, tapping around the screens to move your tenticles either to grab points/kill enemies or latch onto walls. The game looks and the soundtrack is fantastic, quite ominous. Runs excellent on the Lumia 800 though I have had 1 hiccup where the screen just went black. Otherwise, never experienced that again.

It was on the MarketPlace deal for £2.29 I think, but the regular price is rather steep at £3.99. It is unique to the platform though.  There is try before you buy so you can give it a go before handing over any money.

Being an Xbox Live title, you do earn achievement points.

darn wordpress. Video should be there now.

Developer Blurb:

Tap the screen in Tentacles and experience 40 finger breaking levels, amazing boss fights and marvel at the truly ground breaking and intuitive gameplay.

Think fast, move smart, keep eating. Enemies stand in your way and you must rip out their eyeballs as you attempt to defeat mad scientist Dr. Phluff. Where will this final battle take place? Have a guess. Nope, not even close!!

Dr. Phluff has always meddled with the order of nature and this time he sought to create the cutest animal ever conceived. He failed. In a disastrous but not entirely unexpected turn of events his experiment was a catastrophe and he created a being of darkness. Black, heartless and with zero desire to be nice, kind, or worse of all cute. Yes, he created YOU! A slimy black blob with three tentacles, a claw, and a never ending appetite for eyeballs.

Tentacles is a completely new take on the platform genre. Use your tentacles to make your way through Dr. Phluff. Yes, that’s right, you’re actually inside him. It is a ghoulish and ghastly world inhabited by other genetically modified monsters created by Dr. Phluff’s experiments. Guess what, they’re all hungry and you just made the menu. Use your tentacle skills to outrun Dr. Phluff’s acid attacks and face off against bad-ass creatures in awesome boss battles.

    great game but not an easy one

      Yeah, I was just thinking that this game looks ‘challenging’. But, I think that it’s worth a try…

    I’ve seen enough hentai… To know where this is going. Sorry, the word tentacle always gets me.
