If you were expecting the developers of Far Cry and Crysis to follow in the footsteps of their console/PC contemporaries when breaking into the mobile scene, you might be in for a bit of a disappointment. Crytek's new game for iOS and Android devices isn't a mature adventure or even a trimmed-down shooter of any sort; rather, it's a puzzle game entitled "Fibble – Flick ‘n’ Roll."
"The way that people play games on mobile devices is a real blessing," Cevat Yerli, CEO & President of Crytek said in a recent press release. "This allows us to get back to our roots, experiment and focus our energy on creating great gameplay experiences while still keeping Crytek’s high production values.”
In a plot curiously similar to the original Pikmin game, an E.T. named Fibble (not to be confused with Star Trek's tribbles) crash lands on Earth and will require the aid of "Minis" with a variety of special abilities in order to help make his way back home. Fibble – Flick ‘n’ Roll is due out sometime in Spring 2012.
