Description

We make games, you play them.

History

Early history

Adelaide based game making duo Nathan Pana and Jassa Amir-Lang have worked together for nearly a decade. But it was only in 2012 that they decided to start creating games together under the moniker of Piñata Games. They currently have 3 independent titles to their names.

Magnetix

Released in early 2012 our debut title Magnetix (iPad and Android tablets) took twitch gaming to a new level. With its unique gameplay style and fast-paced puzzle solving Magnetix made for a refreshing and somewhat experimental experience. It achieved moderate success with over 70,000 downloads which helped it to reach the number 1 spot on the iTunes store in both Spain and Brazil.

Revolve

Our second title was released in late 2012. Created as a new spin on the age old paddle and ball formula. The player manoeuvres the paddles around a circular track to keep balls in play while avoiding obstacles, building multipliers and using powerups to slow down time and create forcefields. Revolve won the FWA Mobile of the Day Award for January 15th, 2013.

Tamak

Tamak is our third release and will be available from March, 2015. It's a simple, score-chasing puzzle game in the screen-clearing vein of Tetris and Candy Crush Saga for iOS and Android. Players are given tiles that automatically connect to one another when placed on the board. The aim is to match the number shown on each tile to the number of adjacent connecting tiles. Once all of the connections have been completed, the chain is cleared. The longer the chain, the more points the player gets you get.
