When there's a bug crawling near you, do you freak out? Sok and Sao act the complete opposite. They shoot water, fire, crystals, poison, lightning, and even grenades towards them. It's for a good reason, though. Sok and Sao are out to save the world from Dengue fever by destroying Aedes mosquitoes, the primarily transmitter of the Dengue virus. Sok and Sao's Adventure is available first on Windows Phone, and is heading to the iPhone and Android devices soon.
- Run, jump, shield and Shoot in 2D view.
- Collect Coins to upgrade Hero, Life, Gun and Grenade
- 4 Game Worlds
- 7 different powerful guns
- 6 Different bullets (Water, Fire, Crystal, Poison, Electro and missile)
- 2 Heroes to choose
- Optimized to run on any resolutions
Sok is available to play from the beginning. Sao needs to be unlocked with 85,000 coins. There are several buttons on the screen to help you get through the levels. The left side of the screen provides the directional pad. This lets you move and aim your character. The right side is a bit more crowded. You can jump, hit, shield, fire, or throw grenades.
Aiming is a bit difficult since you do not tap on the bugs to fire towards them. You need to adjust your position as well as the directional pad to hit your targets. Your gun initially fires water, but keep your eyes open for ammunition boxes with other types of bullets. Our favorite is fire.
You will definitely get bitten by the bugs and your health meter decreases when that happens. Collect bananas, papayas and cakes to increase health.
There are boss levels that require more time and accuracy. Pay attention to their weak points in order to defeat them.
Sok and Sao's Adventure is a free download from the Windows Phone Store. There are in-app purchases available for upgrades, extra lives, and more, but you're not forced to buy anything. If you've got some free time, this game is worth checking out. Sok and Sao is with Windows Phone right now, but they're heading to Android and iOS soon. Download it now and let us know what you think.
