A lot of classic games had an unintended game over screen where a certain level didn’t quite fit into the game logic or memory. These levels have a name: Kill Screen.
Well, with the release of our new action puzzler, Ms. Germinator, we ran into the very same problem: our very first Challenge Level is actually a kill screen, and half the layout is totally glitched. Can you solve the riddle of the kill screen?
Eagle-eyed observers will already have noticed that the left side resembles a level from the game that heralded the arrival of a certain famous Italian plumber, while the right side is the garbled mess you may expect on the Ms. Pacman kill screen. But, all is not lost — using expert precision and tactics, you can still navigate and conquer this particular kill screen, and you won’t even have to be called Billy Mitchell to do it!
Seriously though folks, this is pretty big — we’re going to regularly release new Challenge levels and run competitions, too! For this first one, the highest score from the Americas (yes, we can tell!) on the ranking board for the Challenge level at end-of-day EST on Tuesday August 27th will receive a prize of 3 Creat Studios games of your choice! Check out the store and our website, we offer a pretty extensive collection. For extra bragging rights, upload your score to YouTube (if playing on PS3) to prove you’re the best in the world!
