'Smell Raiser' skunk Spiffy seeks stars on Android and iOS
Today’s feature in Mumbai-published Animation Xpress, a daily newsletter on all things animated in India, is about a new video game called Smell Raiser starring Spiffy, an anthro young skunk. (Also Tap Tap Sushi, for gamers who are also gluttons for sushi, but there is nothing anthro about that one.)
The official launch trailer for Smell Raiser was posted on YouTube on May 11.
Founded by industry veterans Ninad Chhaya and Chirag Desai, Mumbai based Playcaso has thrown its hat in the ring with the release of two games Tap Tap Sushi available on the iOS and Smell Raiser available on iOS [$0.99] and Android [free] platforms.
Smell Raiser is a side-scrolling, adventure game having Spiffy- a swift and energetic skunk on a mission. He wants to explore the lands of the unknown and travel as far as he possibly can. Using simple jump combination controls, help Spiffy collect stars, activate combinations and evade the creatures of the exotic. The game includes three exotic colorful environments with full retina graphics. It is a simple but skillful ‘one-touch’ control, endless game.
Playcaso is a multi-platform casual, social gaming company focused on delivering games across smartphones, tablets and other emerging connected platforms. Both the games were developed in Playcaso within a period of four months. The company has received strong support from Nazara Technologies which has incubated Playcaso.
(There follows a lot of hype about all the great stuff for the Indian video game industry that Ninad Chhaya and Chirag Desai are doing.)
Coming back to the two newly released games, Playcaso’ VP Products Chirag Desai pointed out that in Smell Raiser, the character had the potential for going the merchandizing way, “To make sure we approached this strategically, we ensured that both the cuteness and appeal in the character was not lost, we made them non-offensive to view but smart and strong enough to tackle the tasks in the game
Will Smell Raiser be the next big game in town? Time will only tell and so can you, go and discover it on your apples and androids and tell us what you think of it.

I don't really understand video games, so people who know more about them than I do will have to say whether this is really any good or not.
