the concept

LAUNCH HEADS is a tribute, by Blue Orca Studios, to two of the great entities of the virtual world, The Minions and Angry Birds. Angry Birds has amassed the revenue, recognition and glory very few games have been able to experience on mobile platforms. On the other hand Minions have proved to be the most famous and loved character of the past decade.

GAME PLAY

Fusing Minions and Angry Birds together in one game is Blue Orca Studios’ way of acknowledging the achievements the two franchises have gathered since their introduction. Minions have led the way as the main character in the game, whereas the simplicity of the concept and game play of Angry Birds has provided with the settings for Blue Orca Studios to place the Minions in. The design of Launch Heads is a combination of 3D and 2D elements. The game is divided into 4 stages based on four seasons i.e. summer, winter, autumn and spring. Each stage has 10 levels to test the player’s skills. The art has been kept on the minimal side of affairs to keep the focus on the task at hand and to match the simplicity of the character and the gameplay. The controls of Launch Heads are exactly the same as Angry Birds where the player has to drag and launch the Minion to hit the target. The targets and their placements will keep getting harder as the player progress through the levels.

WINTER

The temperature is falling and the wind is picking up. Not long before it becomes impossible for the launch heads to suffer the dry, cold winter wind. Don’t take too long clearing this location unless you want to feel frozen at the bottom of the leaderboard.

SPRING

Enjoy the spring sun on the lush green grass fields. There’s nothing like blossoming flowers to set your mood right and hit the targets again and again with accuracy. Make the most of this favorable weather and score as heavily as possible. Remember, the launch head love taking a flight when the view is as pretty as this.

SUMMER

Take aim at the targets challenging you in the scorching summer sun. Send your launch heads flying through the heat and score as high as possible to climb ever so high on the leaderboard. Remember, the heat can distort your vision. Take your time, stand the heat and aim accurately. If you try to rush through your targets, things could quickly get from bad to worse.

AUTUMN

Winter is just around the corner. It is not long before the leaves hit the ground and meet their fate. Try not to expose the spines of your launch heads to the approaching winter for too long. Their spirits are already falling like the leaves. Try to lift their spirits by achieving the goals as soon as possible. These are tough times, so defend your position on the leaderboard.
