Interesting facts

All sounds effects are derived from real nature sounds to make players feel as being outdoors while playing. Also, we were very determined to make all of our graphics resemble a classic cartoon, giving the players that comfortable look and feel.

Smart Way is a highly addictive strategic turn-based puzzle game, guaranteed to attract brainteaser enthusiasts.

The challenge is straightforward and simple. The goal of the game is to outmaneuver and outsmart the super-clever character that is trying to escape the game board by placing obstacles around it. As the game progresses, this simple task gets harder due to the growing difficulty of new levels that are characterized by the increased presence of ‘bonuses’ – fields that enable the escaping character to evade the obstacles easier and faster.

Smart Way is richly themed with 6 different characters: a rabbit, a hedgehog, a sea crab, a fish, a cobra snake and a chameleon. Apart from the characters, there are 3 different playing environments available for players to enjoy: the desert, the meadow and the ocean. The pioneer version offers 60 mind-boggling levels. The subsequent editions will expand the number of environments, levels and characters, according to the developers.
