The North American studio Freehold Games just recently released Sproggiwood for mobile devices. The game is set in a world inspired by Finnish folklore, with the main character being guided by Sproggi, a character presented as a talking sheep. Sproggiwood has been available on Steam since 2014, but now the developers are expanding their horizons to include Android and iOS devices.
During the adventure, the player must protect the Sprog, the land Sproggi calls home. Since the realm was taken over by monsters, the hero is the only chance that Sproggi has to bring peace back again, by taking control of the creatures that now inhabit it. For whatever reason, Sproggi can’t complete the task on his own, so he chooses the player to be the brave hero who can banish evil from his lands.
Combat takes place using a tactical, grid-based style that utilizes action points. There are 6 customizable classes to choose from in the beginning, and each will have to explore the procedurally-generated dungeons in order to find the best scrolls, potions, swords, and staves to aid them during the adventure. A more comprehensive overview of the game can be found in our review of Sproggiwood.
Brian Bucklew, Co-Founder of Freehold Games, had the following to say concerning the new mobile version: “We’ve gone to great lengths to make sure that mobile gamers get the full Sproggiwood experience, matching the PC version feature by feature.” The game is already available for $9.99 in the App Store and the Play Store with no in-app purchases. The PC version can be found on Steam. Those interested in further information can visit the game’s official website.
