Ever since I first played the Android Game They Need to Be Fed, I’ve been on the lookout for Indie games with a unique style. Treemaker from Mikrotie definitely falls into the unique category and it’s an Android game you won’t want to miss. Treemaker is a physics-based game that puts you to work swinging from platforms and planting trees. An odd combination, but an extremely fun one as you’ll quickly find out. All the controls are done through tapping and swiping; it may take you a minute to get the hang of it, but it’s a blast once you do. You basically swing through the levels, and snag every yellow seed you see. Whenever you get a seed you’ll see a little tree sprout, and when you get them all the levels done. Your rope shots are unlimited, but you will receive a score based on how many you use. Treemaker uses the 3-star setup on its levels although you’ll only need to complete the level to advance. The level count comes in at 30 with 6 tutorial levels, and 24 others spread out across 4 different episodes. The game has no extras or options to speak of, but you don’t need Openfeint in a game like Treemaker as it’s all about physics-based fun.
This one dropped when I was out prowling around town last night so I’ve only been able to give it a quick look. I can tell you that after only 30 minutes I was hooked, and Treemaker is the epitome of what a great Indie game should be. It’s got a great atmosphere, simple but awesome graphics, and a soundtrack that fits the game to a tee. I highly recommend this one to anyone and everyone, if you like puzzlers, platformers, or casual physics-based fun Treemaker is the game for you. You can check out Mikrotie’s Treemaker on Google Play for free.
