‘Frank the Dillo’ is Like the Lovechild of ‘Marble Madness’ and Mini Golf

When I think back to some of the fondest memories of gaming in my youth, Marble Madness is a game that sticks out. Sure it was excruciatingly difficult and to this day I don’t think I’ve ever gotten past the fourth or fifth stage, but that sure didn’t stop me from playing it all the time. Oh, I also like mini-golf, both the real life and video game varieties. Wouldn’t it be cool if someone came along and combined those two amazing things? Enter developer Cownado and their upcoming game Frank the Dillo. Based on its trailer, it very much looks like a mashup of Marble Madness and mini-golf, along with all sorts of other wacky stuff thrown in for good measure. Check it out.

Frank the Dillo is set for release at some point in October. It looks really cool, but the only bummer so far is that at least for now the game appears to only be coming to iPads and Android tablets. I typically trust a developer when they make a game tablet-only that it truly needs the larger screen real estate, but we’ve also seen plenty of tablet-only games move to the iPhone with pretty good results. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens. First thing’s first though, and that’s to get Frank the Dillo out into the wild, so look for it to hit the App Store sometime next month.
