We’re always on the look out for great Australian developers and we’ve found a new game, from local guys FabMika Games, who’ve just released their second game onto the iOS app store and Google Play.

The game is called Makibot – The Forest Journey is a darker themed side-scrolling adventure which sees you controlling a steam punk robot as he navigates along a series of paths, avoiding obstacles and traps and gathering prizes along his journey. You’ll definitely see similarities to Limbo in the visual style, but the game play is a lot more fast paced, with an emphasis some times on speed.

Makibot contains twenty levels, which are a mix of puzzles and “jump and run” style gaming. With games such as Temple Run immensely popular it’s no wonder that this style has taken off, though Makibot has a far superior look in our opinion.

The game is the second release for the local developers, with their first game Space Enemies gathering a few hard core fans. But this second release looks set to cement their place as a source of quality games. Game designer, Fabrizio Michels said

Space Enemies was our first release and something I will always be proud of, but like most things you do for the first time, even though you just had a wonderful experience, in the back of your mind you always think you can do better. Makibot is the end result of everything I learned from Space Enemies and my vision of what I think a fantasy-style App should be. I know people will like it.

The game is out now on Android and iOS, as a Freemium title, with the game listed as containing in-app purchases. You’ll pay $1.27 per item but there’s nothing to say you absolutely have to buy any IAP.

For a great game, we encourage you to give this a look, this has great graphics and a really cool and compelling game mechanic that keeps you interested. It’s available to install on your device running Android 2.3.3 and above now in Google Play.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
