A Neopets-themed mobile app is finally on its way, and it looks to be a Sutek's Tomb-esque game themed around the Ghoul Catchers
This app looks to be quite different from what was previously teased by Viacom. Rather than an app to supplement existing players by doing dailies and feeding your pet, this app seems to be a completely standalone game. Hopefully good for when you're away from your computer (or for drawing in some fresh players!)
Now, for some spoilers!
Here are some more details on the app:
Unhaunt houses and banish ghouls!
Mix and match ghouls and ghosts in this brand new game from the creators of Neopets! Brave Bren, the Professor, and Glyn need your help- phantoms and ghouls have escaped from the Haunted Woods and taken over the world. Join this professional team of Ghoulcatchers on their quest to make the world safe again!
You'll need to make matches of three or more to banish the scariest of spirits and unhaunt these houses. Combine four or more ghouls to create special tiles or use game-changing power-ups to clear the board!
- EARN REWARDS: Earn Neopoints and exclusive Neopets items!
- POWER UPS: Power-ups like Ghoul-Be-Gone and Tailchaser can help you out in tough times!
- EXPLORE NEOPIA: Venture through different lands like Brightvale and Faerieland.
- ADOPT A PETPET: Have a Petpet companion accompany you on your journey.
- TONS OF LEVELS: Catch ghouls in 40 levels of increasing complexity - more coming soon!
Ghoulcatchers is free to play
, but contains in-app purchases
for additional items such as power-ups that grant you extra lives and help you in the game. You may lock out the ability to purchase the upgrade by disabling in-app purchases through your device's settings.
Registration information is optional (children under 13 require parent registration). You will be able to be notified of game updates and new features along with integration to the online virtual world Neopets.com
Currently, there are plans for the app to be available on Android, iOS, and Windows Phone devices (via the Google Play Store, Amazon App Store, iTunes App Store, and Windows Store).
A release date is currently unknown. (But most likely not until 2015.)
As always, when more information becomes available, we'll be posting to let you know. :) Look out for a guide when the app is finally released!
Now that Neopets is finally going mobile, what do you think? Will you be downloading the app? Let us know in the comments!
