Synopsis

Rack-Up a fiendish arcade game, is wonderfully addictive and deceptively difficult. You start off thinking it’s going to be much easier than it is, boldly attempting to claim huge chunks of territory at a time – but the Aliens are a devilish thing who will destroy your hard work and defy your attempts of territory control.

Swipe to move and create blocks to claim 80% control of the available grid and you win – then move on to the next level where the challenge is elevated.

Score

If you want to go one step above the achievement of completing levels then your score is the one to watch and is dictated by how much of each level above 80% you can cover.

Lives

You start with 3 lives and it’s a good idea to watch a video ad which will give you an additional 2 lives bringing it up to 5 lives.
To make it even easier, you gain an additional life after completing each level.

Death

Each time you die you start again in the bottom left hand corner.
You can die when the alien catches up with you or an alien’s infection runs along your wall until it reaches you.

Free to Play

Yes of course it is! Being free to play is important in order to reach a wide audience, as is having localisation in order to reach a global audience. We do however need to monetize the game as we have spent many days designing and building it and in order to keep building new games we need to generate revenue. We wanted to do this as fairly and ethically as possible so there are no pay walls, a player can go all the way through to the end of the game without paying a cent.
We have inserted a short ad every few levels and if a player watches an ad they get extra lives. Dont like ads simply pay once and have all ads removed.
