game release date for PS4:
Frantics on PlayStation 4 is a collection of social and arcade mini-games for up to four people. Sony and the Danish studio NapNok Games are responsible for the production of the title. Frantics, which was announced during the E3 fair in 2017, is one of the first titles using the free mobile application PlayLink, prepared for mobile devices running Android and iOS. With its help we 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.
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 your taste.
In the course of the game, players compete with each other in various skill challenges. It is worth mentioning, however, that they do not require a lot of reflex and speed of reaction, but first of all cunning and the ability to bluff the opponents. The loudly clever fox that hosts Frantics and guides you through the rules of the game encourages you to outsmart the other companions of the game. The characters are controlled with a mobile device, shaking it, tilting it, and also using its camera.
Frantics requires all participants to own a tablet or smartphone with the PlayLink app installed. The game offers colourful and eye-catching audiovisual setting. All three-dimensional models of characters and surroundings have been prepared in an interesting graphic style, making the production similar to an animated film using figures and puppets made of plasticine.
