Billy the Painter is a compelling mixture of addictive gameplay and awesome graphics. It has a simple, but novel idea, executed well while maintaining the ambience of the era of the swinging twenties in all its visual and auditory details.

Lipasto Games is pleased to announce the release of Billy the Painter, a thoroughly designed and well-balanced game with a totally new type of gameplay. The game is available for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, and it offers tailor-made music and HD resolution for the new iPad as well as iPhone.

About the game

The player is thrown to the era of the swinging twenties & hand-made animations before the time of jet planes and computers, not to mention mobile phones. Poor Billy has a hard job to do. He has to paint the floor of an old factory after the removal of obsolete machines. He has to paint the revealed surface exactly, and he can’t spill any paint over the rest of the shiny floor.

Every tap a player makes starts a wave of paint expanding in all directions until it hits the older, already finished part of the floor. A player has to fill as large an area as he possibly can before the first wave goes over the limit. The more precise he is, the more points he will get!

A player can try many strategies to fill the area with the best possible precision. In theory he could fill all levels with 100% precision! In practice, 95% is great, 90% good, and even 50% is enough for the first level. Requirements increase slowly, but certainly. A player just can’t make too many mistakes without losing a job.

The game is easy to start, but hard to master. A good sense of rhythm, precise taps and quick decisions are needed for success.
