Buoyant is a departure for the sports game developer best known for the massively successful New Star Soccer brand which been downloaded over 30 million times. Buoyant is a deceptively simple, one touch, high score chasing, endless game.

 

Dig a bit deeper and you have a fiendishly addictive, punishing challenge that will push player skills to their limits. Add a chilled out soundtrack, leaderboards, achievements and that "one more go" magic and you have a game that floats like a butterfly, but stings like a bee, or more specifically, stings like a lot of nasty spiky obstacles floating in the water.

 

Simon Read, creator and owner of New Star Games gave some insight into the idea behind the game, which came off the back of a game jam session. "I wanted to make a 2D version of Wave Race 64, so I started playing around with wave physics. I soon had a little pixel-art guy on a jet ski surfing along but found when I switched to a more abstract style that the game was more appealing. It was great fun to create and I've enjoyed working on a shorter project, and now I'm looking forward to getting it out there and seeing what the response is like."

 

Buoyant is also a departure from what is seen as normal in "free to play" games on mobile. This is because Buoyant has no adverts at all and only 1 optional purchase. Players can enjoy a number of plays every day for free, but they can unlock unlimited plays for just Ã,Ã,£1.99 and that's it.
