We’ve evolved from a weather app and a photography app to a mobile game. Through this advancement we once again pushed the boundaries of our expertise and created a novel and creative product.

The mobile game features characters called Woobles that players must tap or swipe to defeat and continue the game. The Woobles, who first appeared in the Weatherwise app in the Woobles Theme, add personality to the game through the use of a diverse and evolving set of character animations. Each Wooble has different abilities that thwart players who try to keep them at bay in order to progress through the game, achieve higher scores, and earn coins for in app purchases. Players can select from a timed version or a standard survival version to fit their needs and skill level.
Wooble Attack is available for free to all iPhone and iPad users and comes with a standard set of Woobles. As players advance in the game and collect coins, they have the ability to use these coins to purchase game advancements like new skins or power ups. These items are also available for purchase without the use of the game’s coins.
“Wooble Attack shows the breadth and sheer talent of our team,” said Local Wisdom Vice President, Shawn Venkat who oversees the R&D team. “We’ve evolved from a weather app and a photography app to a mobile game. Through this advancement we once again pushed the boundaries of our expertise and created a novel and creative product.”
Unlike traditional tap-and-hit style games, Wooble Attack incorporates new techniques and degrees of difficulty. The user can use a swipe and chain technique to link together and defeat like-colored Woobles. This technique allows players to earn higher points than they would if they defeated a singular Wooble using the traditional tap method.
Creative Director, RJay Haluko, describes Wooble Attack as “a fun, easy-to-use game that is appropriate for users of all ages.” Haluko notes that the Woobles “work great to keep your child occupied but have enough depth and challenge to keep an adult entertained."
Wooble Attack is the third mobile application developed by Local Wisdom and is the product of the company’s R&D department led by RJay Haluko, Creative Director. The team utilized 3D video game engine, Unity 3D to create the Wooble Attack characters and game elements. With the learned knowledge from this experience, Local Wisdom is now equipped to build full-fledged 3D video games for mobile devices, desktop computers, and video game consoles such as Playstation, Xbox, and Wii.
