Frantics, released on PS4, is a collection of social and arcade mini-games for up to four people. Sony and the Danish studio NapNok Games are responsible for this title. Frantics, announced during the E3 fair in 2017, is one of the first titles using the free mobile application PlayLink, prepared for mobile devices using Android and iOS. We use it to interact with characters on the TV screen and perform numerous tasks and challenges. It is up to the players whether they will cooperate or interfere with each other on the way to victory.

Mechanics

Frantics is a set of fifteen arcade mini-games for the whole family and people of all ages. Starting the game, we choose one of the twelve available animal avatars, which represent us in the virtual world. We can also change their appearance to suit our taste.

Players compete with each other in various arcade challenges. It is worth mentioning, however, that they don't require great reflex and reaction speed. Instead, we need to be cunning and good at bluffing. Frantics is hosted by a loud and clever fox that guides us through the rules of the game and encourages to outsmart the other players. The characters are controlled with a mobile device - we can shake it, tilt it, or use its camera.

Technical aspects

Frantics requires all participants to own a tablet or smartphone with the PlayLink app installed. The game offers colorful and eye-catching audiovisuals. The 3D character models and environments have been prepared in an interesting graphic style, making the game similar to an animated film using figures and puppets made of plasticine.
