Of Cheese and Aesop’s Fables: The Fox and The Wily Crow

If you’re familiar with Aesop’s fables, then you’ll probably know about the story of the fox and the crow, which is a reminder not to always trust those who flatter us. And now, Shiva Game Studio have taken that concept and brought it to life in a digital format entitled The Fox and The Wily Crow, a downloadable app with a twist on the old favorite.

In The Fox and The Wily Crow, a flock of wicked crows have ambushed your grandfather’s factory and are nicking all the cheese. Naturally, such preposterous behavior can simply not go on, so you, a brave young fox, decide to get back at them with your trusty bow and arrow. The game has already been voted as one of the top 5 upcoming apps of 2013, and boasts a solid journey of 18 incredible levels, upgradable weapons and ammunition, and of course, the satisfaction of getting all that cheese back. The fable of the fox and the crow itself will be gradually unveiled as players progress through the levels, adding yet another layer of intrigue to the game.
