Tap-a-Paca is a platforming game where the player must master a single yet important aspect, timing. The main character of the game is an Alpaca that needs to jump it’s way through the clouds and the objective is to get as far as possible.
The game is designed to be very simple to play with a single input required, a tap. The input will tell the paca to jump, and each jump will be identical to the previous. So with that in mind, where’s the challenge?
Well that is all in the clouds, quite literally. Each cloud is designed to move in a certain pattern which the player will have a specific allotted time to understand and then execute their action on. The time requirement comes from the Alpaca’s unfortunate tendency to slowly fall through the cloud it’s standing on.
So random cloud movements and sinking Alpaca’s, starting to sound difficult? Well we didn’t mention that for every successful cloud you land on the speed of both the cloud you stand on and movement speed of the cloud you need to jump on increase. Suffice to say we think triple digit scores will only be achieved by the true masters.
