    Lite Version (8 levels)

    Sounds like Lemmings?

    Here's a preview/teaser video. And let me just say I hate non-gameplay teaser videos:

    Interesting sounding game, strange for them to have gone from concept art to a submitted game in 5 days, but I suppose we won't know until we see it. I agree with you though, not only is it frustrating to see no in game video, but also slightly worrying. Why wouldn't a developer post screenshots or video of the actual game on their site if it is finished and submitted?

    We're working on it, sorry for the lack of material, we've been a bit slow on the promotion front as we've been polishing the game for submission.

    The game is now live and can be found on iTunes here:
    KamiCrazy iTunes

    There's also a Lite version awaiting approval so keep an eye out for that.

    Screenshots can also be found on the facebook page

    We hope you enjoy the game and let us know your feedback

    Just got the game. Guess everybody around here knows Lemmings ... this game is like it but kinda different.

    The little soldiers have to get from A to B but instead of giving them little "jobs" like digging you can manipulate the surroundings moving object with your finger or to get soldiers to flip switches.

    You interact with the soldiers by flicking them making them jump or turn around.

    I am 10 levels into the game and so far it's quick fun - each level about 10 to 20 seconds. Well there's supposed to be about 40 levels so I guess it's enough for a qucik round on the porcelaine throne. ;)

    Come on Devs. your teaser video looks like it took much more effort than filming a minute or two of gameplay...

    The game has a lemmings feel to it.

    You start a level with a group of solders (lets just say 5) they fall through a starting gate one at a time. You goal is to get them to the exit shack using gesture controls to switch directions, jump, move objects, etc. The exit shack is lower than the starting number so you can lose a few solders without worry.

    4 dollars seems like much at this point but I'll keep playing and see if things pick up

    Has anyone tried this yet? it looks to be inspired by lemmings, but the gameplay seems a little different. Someone made a thread about it last night and said they liked it.

    I think I might go ahead and get it

    Looks great. The visuals really bring back memories of Day of the Tentacle/ Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

    fun little game. nice graphics. the kamidude fall out of a hole just like in lemmings.

    instead of assigning tasks, you flick the kami to make him jump, swipe to change directions etc.

    this puzzle game mixes it up a bit by having bouncy platform, and fans to blow the kamis as they fly through the air to negotiate farther jumps.


    This game reminds me of old amiga games Troddlers and Bill's tomato game, with Lemmings obviously thrown in as well.


    It's a really really good game. I'd definitely recommend checking it out, especially if you like these types of puzzlers.

    Nope - downloaded OK

    I've just downloaded it. I have been having problems with iTunes again today (I get an error message whenever I try to post a review). Maybe Apple are still changing iTunes and this caused a problem. Try it again.

    Hopefully. I keep getting a message that they're having a problem and can't access my account.

    well, i'm on level 26 now and I have a few more thoughts on this game.

    - It looks very nice and polished graphically.

    but
    - really needs a tutorial mode
    - jumping consistently is really difficult, sometime I feel I KNOW i did everything right and my input was just ignored. EPIC FRUSTRATION

    I really wouldn't recommend this game until up update comes out to add/fix these major omissions.

    New Gameplay video

    We've just uploaded a new gameplay video up on YouTube showing off some footage from the first few levels.

    We'll get some more stuff up soon, in the meantime keep letting us know what you think, we've got a new build with some fixes in coming soon, so anything you say could directly influence the update.

    Meh, looks ok. Not really my type of game. Definitely trying the lite version, though. Couldn't help laughing at the teaser video when the guy ran past the same mountain 3 times :p

    I liked the lite version, but I don't think I'll buy it. It's a well made game, it's just not my cup-o-tea. the lite version is definitely worth trying.

    Tried the lite version. It constantly crashes on startup even after rebooting. I get the loading screen, the a cube and then again the loading screen. Then it crashes.
