Command Missiles? Cast magic spells instead! Ballpit Monster launches arcade shooter
February 7th, 2013— Montevideo, URUGUAY—Ballpit Monster Studios, the Uruguay-based studio of bouncy mobile fun, today released their debut title Frog Orbs, a “ribbiting” re-imagining of the old school arcade shooter for mobile devices. Starting today, players can harness the powers of elemental orbs to destroy wave after wave of invading Benglings bent on destroying all your delicious flies. Cast a dozen powerful spells to defend your turf, then earn flies to upgrade your magical wizard’s cap and wand. Dive into the frantic action of Frog Orbs, now available free on the App Store.

Benglings are threatening Bufo the wizard apprentice’s supply of flies, and it’s up to the player to blast them away! Use Bufo’s powerful elemental orbs like Fire, Ice, Wind, and Earth, to cast spells against waves of enemies. Each baddie has elemental weaknesses, introducing light strategy into the fast-tapping action. As they progress, players unlock orb upgrades to gain the upper hand. A perfectly timed magic blast also causes chain reactions among nearby baddies and deals maximum damage. Magic, however, is not unlimited. Each offensive or defensive spell consumes part of the orb’s magic, which is also drained when enemies make it past your defenses and crash into them. Taking advantage of elemental weaknesses, creating combos and mastering the magic spells will lead Bufo to victory!
