We’ve had a bit of radio silence because we’ve been working hard on a lot of things at the office. Today, we want to show you some of what is going on. Below we have a working demo of the Alpha version of our next project. This game is called Stupid Pixel. If you’re old enough to remember the PC classic, Lemmings, then you might know what to expect. We plan on bringing this classic, popular, and always-fun game-style to mobile devices as soon as it’s ready and add our own twists to a well-known genre.
This is a work-in-progress. Everything is subject to change, and as usual, we are always looking for feedback, even at these early stages.
Here are the first four levels of this early-version game. Your goal is to get the “Stupid Pixels” to the end of the level. Your only tools are the blue items given to you at the beginning. Place them around the level (by clicking and dragging) to make sure your pixels don’t fling themselves to a grisly death. It takes a bit of trial and error, but you’ll get there.
As a reminder, this is a very early version of this game. Everything is subject to change and with your constant feedback, we will continue to make this game better and better.
Check back in a few days as we will be having a new announcement regarding this game. And of course, we are still working on Phantasmic.
The Big Surprise
Once again, Novalon Games is proud (Like literally, beaming!) to show off Phantasmic. This time in demo form! You can play it below, but here’s a couple things to note:
- This is only the first level of what will be a much longer game.
- There is only one hero with one power available in this demo.
- This game is intended to be played on mobile devices, so it’s a bit harder with a mouse pointer (instead of your fingers).
- This demo is from our beta build, so everything from art and music to even gameplay is subject to change. Feel free to post your feedback! We appriciate it.
Now that the boring stuff is out of the way, enjoy the demo below! (If the game hangs or doesn’t load properly, refresh your browser!)
Update: We had some feedback that the game was difficult to play with the mouse. We updated this online demo to allow the use of keyboard functions. Here are the controls:
A = “Shield” or Attack
S = “Crouch”
D = “Dash”
Spacebar = “Jump” (You can double jump if you get in trouble!)
Use the “Gear” Button to pause/restart the game.
Posted Even Earlier
Novalon Games is proud to show our first game off in action! This is played on our local machines (hence the mouse pointer found in the video) but will ultimately be available on mobile platforms once it’s completed.
You can also view it directly on YouTube here: http://youtu.be/seDA7PR6No8

That’s not the only surprise. There’s even better news coming later today!
Novalon Games is a brand-new emerging independent game developer. Our team is comprised of some of the most creative talent in our industries. He have big ideas and very important announcements to post on our site.
One of those announcements is that Novalon Games will be using the HeroEngine framework to create our first online game! We are incredibly excited over here about this framework. It takes all the hassle out of the development of tools and backend things so we can focus on the most important thing, the game. They also host the game on their servers and handle payment processing!
We are cracking away and really putting some cool stuff together here. If you curious and want some specific details, contact us!
Great News: We have begun development on iOS app related products.
Novalon loves to make and play video games of all types. But we are also looking to deliver something that everyone can get excited about. While we continue to develop Wayfarers, we wanted to be able to share a product with our fans sooner. That’s why we are moving into the area of app game development!
The turnaround on these can be much faster and way more efficient on mobile devices.
Novalon Games is looking to create free-to-play iOS and Android apps that ultimately offer in-app purchases if you like the games.
Now for even better news!
Novalon Games has TWO iOS app-games mere weeks from a beta state!
Sure, we’ve been quiet on the website, but that was because we have been hard at work coming up with two separate iOS games.
We will be updating the site soon with more details and screenshot for both games. Stay tuned!
We’ll leave you with one teaser word: “Phantasmic.”
