BlackSmithGames recently announced their first iPhone and iPod Touch game called Plushed. They describe it as a platformer with unique gameplay.

What happens when the fairytale world of a cute little girl turns into a cursed kingdom where she is queen? Her favorite plushie sets out to save her, of course. Guiding her loyal plush through several haunted meadows and creepy castles, you must use your wits to bring down the Evil voodoo mouse and his army of wacky minions! It' simple; get to the castle, save the princess. You've seen it before, but not like this. PLUSHED! The adventures of the reluctant bunny knight

The game is said to include over 20 different characters and 9 large levels and 3 world bosses. Plushed is also said to have been designed specifically for the iPhone and iPod Touch and uses the touch controls and accelerometer for gameplay.

Control different items with your finger or by shaking your iPhone to attract enemies, defeat level bosses, to solve tasks and to do many other exciting things.

While it's hard to tell much of the gameplay itself based on screenshots alone, the artwork alone looks great and we have high hopes for the game itself.


Blacksmith games is holding a promotion to increase their twitter followers by linking the launch price of the game to the number of followers they have (more followers -> lower launch price).

    Yeah the art on this is impressive and creative. Not much like this on the iDevices, so the freshness is much appriciated. I love platformers too. The good ones seem to be in short supply too, hopfully this adds to it. Based on the screen shots alone, I am at least interested.

    Looks like this game has a much deeper inspiration for the art style than Castle of Magic which seemed very procedural.

      You thought Castle of Magic's design seemed procedural? I mean it was nothing wildly innovative, the level designs were beautifully done... I mean you gotta admit... theres nothing like it in the app store right now.

        Yeah, it definitely looks great. But it didn't feel very... inspired. I mean, look at the first screen shot of this game. There's a tree and its leaves are made out of yarn balls. The creatures in the grass look very unusual. I guess I just mean the art style in this is very creative and unusual.

    the artwork looks nice and all but 9 large levels and 3 world bosses? That don't sound like much too me, unless these are huge levels.

    Of course if the price is right...:)

      I am okay with deeper, nicer but shorter games if the price reflects the play length. Then again I don't finish most games anyways.
