Vandals, Cosmografik's follow-up to the puzzle platformer Type:Rider, promises a puzzler revolving around turn-based movement and carefully-planned traversal along grids of enemies, hazards, and power-ups, in the vein of the Go games. But rather than hitmen, AI defenders, or monsters, Vandals is themed around tagging urban settings with graffiti.
Featuring levels in cities ranging from Paris to New York and Berlin, you travel long a grid of paths, each movement causing police and other dangers to move in turn. Guards, dogs, cameras, and alaram systems all stand between you, tagging, and escape, and success will require planning ahead, timing movements to evade security, and activating items and power-ups, such as a switch to turn off laser alarm, at the right moment.
Vandals is slated to feature over sixty levels across five cities, with multiple achievements to test your puzzle-solving skills. The game is releasing on iOS and Android on April 12th, and currently can be preordered for $3.99 on the App Store.
