Happy Canada Day everyone! What better way to celebrate than with a strategy/maze game starring toque wearing beavers chasing golden nickels through a maze eh! Who needs BBQ’s, picnics, parties or fireworks?
Great Beaver is an interesting game to say the least. You are an unassuming little guy that is looking to round up “beaver coins and avoid territorial beavers from other clans.” I have found it a little difficult to master but thanks to a short demo video on youtube, I realized that I don’t have to leave my finger on the screen all the time. It blocks the view of those other pesky beavers trying to take you out. Check out the video below.
The developer has only offered this game for sale in Canada, “because there are too many Canadian references for [him] to sell it elsewhere.” I’m not sure why anyone would let a few subtle country-specific references limit their sales potential eh. So go check it out hosers!
Pickup Great Beaver for your PlayBook from App World. There is a free trial that allows you to play the first 2 levels and the full version costs less than a loonie!
You can also play Great Beaver directly in your tablet’s browser by going to www.coasterapps.com. The browser version is exactly the same as the trial version of the app as far as I can tell. It works on the PlayBook and Android smartphones and tablets. There is a special message to iPad owners on the site: “Apple iPad users: I’m so, so, sorry.” Kind of refreshing to see a little rare Apple smashing by a developer.
