Crytek announces first iOS effort Fibble: Flick 'n' Roll

Crysis developer looking to expand its audience.

Seasoned AAA developer Crytek is dipping its toes into casual waters for the first time, with the impending release of Fibble: Flick 'n' Roll.

The Crysis studio's debut iOS title is a physics-based puzzler that sees you guiding a spherical extraterrestrial through 30 levels set in the rooms of a suburban home in search of his stranded crew. See the game in action below.

It's available to download now, priced at £1.49 on iPhone and £2.99 on iPad.

Crytek boss Cevat Yerli explained that it's an attempt to grow the studio's audience beyond the high-end shooter crowd it currently attracts.

"Innovation, fun and unique user experiences have always been at the heart of Crytek's games." he commented.

"Fibble: Flick 'n' Roll continues that tradition whilst inviting a wider audience to experience the high production values that help our games to stand out from the crowd.

"Players can look forward to breathtaking console-quality graphics, and - most importantly - a highly engaging gameplay experience that will offer lots of replay value."

The studio has a number of more core-orientated titles also in the works - Homefront 2 for THQ, free-to-play FPS Warface and Kinect action title Ryse.
