Description

Ballpit Monster is a videogame studio based in Montevideo, Uruguay. Founded in 2012, the monsters here work really hard to develop original games that appeal to a broad audience. Most of these monsters have worked on other ballpits making web browser and iOS games. When they're not cooking up their next creation you can find them wandering around the ballpit - scaring children and stealing their socks.

History

Frog Orbs

Our first project released in February 2013 for iOS devices. Frog Orbs is a cartoon-twist to classic fast paced arcade action. Players blast enemies to protect themselves and the powerful orbs that will help them on their quest. Frog Orbs managed more than 300,000 downloads on its first month online. Apple featured it in its App Store in more than 120 countries, appearing in lists such as New and Noteworthy and What's Hot for weeks. We are very proud of these achievements considering that it is our first game as a studio.

Flick Knights

Our second and most ambitious project. An asynchronous multiplayer multi-platform game: Play against anyone, anywhere, anytime. Players will trade turns as they control quirky characters by flicking as they try to elminate the opposing team's base and its members. Currently in Open-Beta for PC and Mac platforms and planning releases in mobile phones in the near future.

Frog Orbs 2

The sequel to our first game. Metrics from the original title showed that younger kids were more interested in the game so we are catering to them! Gameplay has been streamlined and progression is more linear while keeping the exploding fun in its place. Currently in beta, its release is planned for the Q1 of 2014.
