The day has arrived – after seven years of development, Splot has now been released! You can get Splot from the App Store and it’s priced at $3.99/3.59€/£2.49.
In our last blog post, we showed you the Official Trailer. We’ve also created a new Gameplay Trailer showing more of the gameplay and different collectable Splots – check it out below. 🙂
Splot is a colorful 2D platformer where the player moves around by bouncing and sliding. Splot’s gameplay is fast-paced platforming action and the goal is to reach all the captured birdlings in time before the Blobs eat them, while racing to the end of the levels as fast as possible in order to complete the rescue.
Splot has easy-to-learn and responsive controls that work through taps and holds – there are no virtual buttons, and the game is easy for anyone to pick up. Splot also offers a good bit of challenges and depth, so it’s great for old-school platformer fans as well. Check out Splot’s Official Website through this link.
- Race against the Hungry Blob Kings and rescue the endangered Baby Birdlings
- Easy to learn touch controls with stunning precision – bounce your way through perilous obstacles: spikes, lava, lasers, portals, and more
- Level up and boost your abilities with splottastic power-ups such as the Magnet, Freeze, and Vacuum!
- Collect vault pieces and unlock over 150 different Splots
- Explore seven unique worlds: a peaceful Fairy Forest, a hazardous Space Station, a spooky Haunted Castle, and others to discover
- Play through a total of 56 challenging levels and three difficulty settings that put your skills to the test
At the moment Splot is available for purchase for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch (requires iOS 6.1.3 or later). A PC version is not for sale, but the Humble Frozenbyte Bundle purchasers will also get their Windows version of Splot today. Our Support will be happy to help anyone with questions about this.
We hope that you’re as excited about this as we are and have many Splottastic moments with the game. 🙂 Cheers all!
Finally, I had the chance to try the PC version of the game. The mobile/tablet version might be a lot of fun, but the PC version is just horrible at the current state. I think the graphics and the theme are ok, but the over simplistic controls, no gamepad support and lack of settings just killed the game for me. I’m afraid that Splot was adapted to the mobile/tablet market so much, it will be impossible to make PC/console users happy.
From the Humble Bundle website, I’m only given the option to “Download Beta”, so I’m assuming an improved version will be put up at a later date. On that note, I don’t intend to own any Apple products in the future, so it would be nice to see an Android version down the line.
Correction: Splot was adapted to the mobile/tablet market so much, it will be impossible to make ANYONE happy.
Mobile gaming has been destroyed IMHO.
Any ETA on the linux version ? Will it be released on steam ?
We don’t have an estimate on the Linux version unfortunately. Since the game was made with Marmalade, we need them to support it first, so it may take some time.
Sorry for the delay.
So…. it’s been a month. Are you going to update the Humble Bundle version?
Over a year has passed now and if my humble library is anything to go by it still only offers a beta version. What’s the deallyo?
This ”beta” version of Splot in your Humble Library is actually the full game. It’s not sold anywhere, but we still wanted to bring the game to those who had already bought the Humble Bundle which is why it had to be added as a beta. Still it’s indeed a Windows version of the full game.
Hello from the future in 2022. I thought I was owed this game and then I realized I purchased the Humble Bundle Frozenbyte Bundle from 2014 which did not include Splot from what I understand. I don’t understand why devs do this. Make a game and then hide it from the public??? Anyway, why not just release it for all to enjoy. Maybe a small payment via your website or Itch.io. etc. I would love to have this beta for Windows.
A PC beta download of Splot was included in the Bundle, but the game was never officially released outside iOS. The game runs on Marmalade, which has since been discontinued. The Windows beta version was available for everyone who purchased the Bundle as a download for several years (until sometime in 2018, if I recall correctly), but it has since been taken down and we’re not planning on releasing it at the moment. Sorry for the disappointment, but I hope you can still enjoy the rest of the bundle even without Splot.
