San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 28, 2014
GREE, a leading developer of mobile games, today announced the release of Flop Fu, a wacky fighting game available exclusively for Android devices. In this quirky game, players can go head-to-head against crazy fighters by flailing and flopping their limbs in both single-player and real-time synchronous multiplayer modes through Google Play. Flop Fu comes out of GREE’s experimental G-Labs initiative and is available now for free on Google Play.
“Simply put, Flop Fu is just a really fun game to play,” said Patrick Traughber, Senior Product Manager at GREE International, Inc. and leader of G-Labs. “The G-Labs team is always thinking about new and innovative games and ways to play them. Flop-Fu is definitely all of that with a dash of hilarity. The concept of the game is simple, but once players get ahold of the joystick controls and attempt to master each fighter’s awkward movements, laughs are sure to follow.”
Flop Fu puts quirky fighting action right at the players’ fingertips with two joysticks to control - “Flail” and “Flop.” Players use the joysticks to move the rag doll-like limbs of their characters as they deliver blows and punches to their opponents. Bodies will flip while arms and legs spin wildly out of control. Utilizing the game’s ability to seamlessly pair players against other Google Play users, Flop Fu offers real-time synchronous multiplayer fighting action. With a global leaderboard and player statistics to check out, gamers can flail and flop their way to dominating the ranks of the Flop Fu universe. Flop Fu fans will also enjoy the multitude of zany fighting characters to choose from (like a boxer, luchador or astronaut), amusing sound effects (including the vocal talents of the G-Labs development team), and catchy music to keep the fighting action fun, wacky and totally out of the ordinary.
G-Labs is an experimental initiative that allows GREE staff to design and build new games and apps in less than three months. The project teams are generally made up of a very small group of artists, engineers and UI/UX designers who then have to create a prototype in a matter of weeks. The goal is to encourage everyone to explore new mechanics, different types/genres of games, and to use a multitude of resources to bring to life a unique experience for mobile.
Flop Fu is available for free on Google Play at http://greegam.es/FlopFu.
