They had all previously worked together in a decked-out loft space on the downtown side of the Willamette River, in a hipster-yuppie enclave rife with fair trade espresso bars and artisanal chocolatiers.

Little Chomp rates 8.8 from Tapscape!

We’re thrilled to announce that Little Chomp has been selected for the PAX East 2013 Indie Showcase!

It seemed like such a long shot that we almost didn’t even apply. Like the true Clutch Players we are, purchase we literally got the application in 2 minutes before the midnight deadline back in December.

The moral of the story:  Great things can happen when you refuse to give up.  Being an indie is all about taking chances.  Lesson learned!

Boston, medical here we come!

Little Chomp iPhone Game Review: Addictive Climbing Game

Little Chomp is an iPhone game developed by ClutchPlay Games. In this addictive little game, you’re tasked with helping a cuddly caterpillar climb from the forest floor to the canopy in record time, all while collecting coins and fruits.

Little Chomp works on a drag-based control scheme. Pull and release on Little Chomp’s tail to aim and fire him in any direction. Pulling and holding on his tail gives you a visual guide of the arc he will travel in upon release. The controls are very responsive, and they make the game a joy to play.
