While late to the party, Catch the Princess is a fantastically thought out game, with devious puzzles, and a dark and mysterious atmosphere. But while playing I couldn’t help but feel I’ve played this before. There’s nothing wrong with making similar games, the App Store is rife with duplicates and copycats. Catch The Princess straddles a fine line between homage and copycat with the popular game, Cut the Rope.
Canadian app developer Robots and Pencils challenges you to save the damsel in distress over and over and over again in its upcoming physics-based puzzle game Catch the Princess HD. Play through more than 60 dungeon levels with a wide variety of challenges, cutting the chains that bind the poor princess to the ceiling. Plan your moves carefully, using bellows, pixie dust and physics to swing the princess’ cage past dangerous obstacles, as you guide her into the waiting arms of a fang-toothed admirer.
Catch the Princess will be released for iPhone and iPod Touch – alongside Catch the Princess HD for iPad – on December 21.
