Featured game: Drag n Zip

Dragons, fireballs, pit-traps — Drag n Zip has all of this and more!

Drag n Zip is a new Corona-built game from Cluck Eye Tea. The game is about a thief named Zip on a quest to conquer the five kingdoms. Along the way, you collect coins, gems, potions, and more while dodging those dragons, fireballs, and pit-traps.

Drag n Zip was developed by William Francis and his son as their annual summer project. Francis said “I am a professional app developer by day who works on apps for mega-brands like Chick-fil-A, Coke, Fox News, and Game Show Network. My son and I are huge gamers though and our favorite environment for writing our own games is Corona. Each summer we take on a project and this summer’s project was Drag n Zip.”

The game uses a different movement technique compared to the “virtual joypad” usually found in these type of games. Instead, you simply drag Zip around the environment from place to place. The mechanic works well and the game gets more challenging as you advance.

Drag n Zip is available for free with advertising and in-app purchases. It’s available on the Apple App Store and Google Play.
