Every Friday we highlight a Buildbox made game in our special “#indiedev Buildbox #FreeGameFriday spotlight.” This week’s spotlight goes to Swedish Heroes’ Jox.
Jox is an addictive one tap arcade game that really challenges players. Set in a beautiful minimalist style world of floating cubes, the game’s goal is simple. Players have to tap to leap from one cube to the next without falling. Although it appears to be an easy task, the ascending floating cubes serve as both a platform and a deadly obstacle depending on your aim. One centimeter off in a jump and it’s ‘Game Over.’
There’s over 20 challenging levels for players to master. It also features a very cool ambient soundtrack. From the calming music to the floating cubes and bubbles, Jox is a great casual game to play when you want to unwind and relax.
You can check out Jox on iOS.
Since its release, Jox has been featured by Apple in more than 100 countries including United Kingdom, Denmark and Sweden. It reached the Top 10 in the charts in South Korea. The game also ranked Top 100 in Germany and 14 other countries.
Jox was developed by Swedish Heroes and published under Nanovation Labs. Swedish Heroes is a minimalist mobile game studio based in Sweden. Their mission is to launch a new game each month that’s fun and addictive.
Recently, Swedish Heroes has been using our software, Buildbox, to make quality games at a fast pace. We couldn’t be happier.
Using Buildbox have enabled us to publish Switch and Snowrider really fast. Their user forums is fantastic. @buildboxcom is here to stay!
