Description

Abduct humans from earth to populate uninhabited planets across the galaxy!

In Abductor Pro, you play the alien Antaris, who flies over Planet Earth’s surface in his UFO. You tilt your device to aim at humans and tap the screen to beam them up. Use your second thumb to shoot at unmanned air mines, barrels and drones. Defeating a helicopter is a bit more complicated.

This ‘ego-beamer’ game plays like a shooter - but nobody gets hurt. The challenge is to beam up the right humans, because not all human types can survive extraterrestrial conditions. So you better study the Abduction Holopad carefully before you start your mission.

As you progress through your abductor career you will unlock new planets, which will challenge you with different scenarios and disturbances: artillery, changing weather conditions, swapping humans and control system damages. During your missions, you can earn cherries that are used to unlock new types of humans in the cherry shop.

History

Ploink is the co-founder of Delicious Toys, best known for tilt-puzzle game called “eBoy FixPix”, a collaboration with the famous pixel artists eBoy. It was well-received on IGN, Touch Arcade, Engadget, Mashable and Kotaku and went up #5 in US top paid AppStore charts in 2010. It was also featured as Apple’s App Of The Week in Japan for both iPhone and iPad.

The game idea for Abductor Pro developed from the vision of humans watching the world from the top of buildings. After a 2D game prototype in flash it evolved to 3D when Ploink started getting serious about Unity3D. He developed both the game and the art style simultaneously until he achieved something he considered new, unique and fun. He also did all 3D modelling, programming, menus, sound design and even some of the music (Bach remixes) on his own.
