Good Guy Robots, a two-person startup launched by BCIT students Ranyl Bantog and Tyler Schroeder, is the company behind Codex, a "maddeningly addictive" puzzle challenge game that started as a school assignment but then was adopted by Microsoft for its Xbox platform.
Codex's Xbox edition has been nominated for numerous Canadian Videogame Awards, and is now coming to the mobile space, an area Ranyl appears highly interested in.
Codex is a "tile shifting game designed to test your spatial logic skills," according to its description in the mobile app store. "The object of the game is to earn medals by solving the puzzle in the least number of moves as specified for gold, silver and bronze medals. The Windows Phone 7 version of the game introduces a new rotary dial for selecting puzzles as well as an auto orientation feature so the game can be played either landscape or portrait mode."
Codex will eventually launch on the iOS and Android platforms.
