I have been promising this forever, but I had to get the timing just right. I don’t want to keep you waiting any longer tho so finally here is the long-awaited Cooties Update preview. And don’t forget, now all you have to do is click on an App Icon and you will be directed right to its page in iTunes!
I liked it, but said it wasn’t especially friendly to young kids (particularly pre-readers) who were otherwise enthralled by the cute characters and comic-book appearance of this fun game.
It was one of the very first reviews I did and so you can’t begin to imagine my surprise when Mika of KYY Games, the developer, came to my site to address those concerns. (Read It Here.)
It was the first glimpse I had that my site might actually take off and very much in part to Mika and other amazing Devs like him, it has surpassed my wildest expectations.
And so have the updates to Cooties! I said I like responsive developers, but this beats all.
A picture is worth a thousand words and we all know the Stay at Home geekMom has no trouble wasting words by the thousands, so let’s just take a look:
As you can see, Cooties will soon have 3 modes of play: Normal which is what you’ve been playing with a few new surprises; insane for those of you, like me, who have become addicted to this frantic-fun swipe, flick and pop game; and as promised not just an Easy mode, but a Kid’s Mode!
I had the great pleasure of getting to know the man behind KYY Games, and like so many of the amazing devs I’ve worked with, he is a father, who consulted his daughter on exactly how to make this game accessible to younger players and she was inspired! Look how EASY the directions now are, even for non-readers, to understand:
Don’t panic though, none of the great comic-book story, nefarious germs or disgruntled useless organs are missing:
The game retains all it’s charm, but now has something for everyone in the family.
I can now say Cooties is about to be a 5 Star game. Get it before it become a huge franchise like Angry Birds, because it’s already climbing the charts! Watch the App Store to make you catch the update coming VERY SOON!
