The Howler is a very unique iOS title. It combines the use of sound and motion gestures with artistic adventure-puzzler gameplay mechanics. And it is now available for free for the very first time since 2014. It could be described as a party game considering you use noise for control, but all of that can be turned off in favor of typical on-screen gestures if you choose:
The game can be played in a traditional “touch” way or you can do everything by voice – noise will make the balloon to go up, silence will let it down. You can even drop parcels or bombs by making short loud noise or by shaking the device.
iOS Universal: The Howler: FREE (Reg. $1)
Definitely the best game for parties!
Vilnius, 1905. Free city, roamed by dirigibles, air balloons and steam carriages. Alchemists and mechanics build and operate incredible machines and automatons. Powerful neighbours feel challenged by the innovations of the free city.
There are 16 missions in this game. Each mission is unique – you have to complete the task to go to the next one. This game is a mix of action and adventure and quest and puzzle solving. It does require some strategic thinking. Each level of the game is unique piece of art – all the images were hand-drawn on paper, in an old-fashioned way.
