The trailer:The basic rules are simple: Players need to be within 54 yards to catch a Mobble. Some can be found only in San Francisco; others prefer New York City. Some only come out at night; others like to hide under the Eiffel Tower! Once a player captures a Mobble, he or she can feed them, play with them, or give them toys and musical instruments. If a Mobble is not properly cared for, it'll get sad... and maybe even die.
Players who like to keep their Mobbles entertained can spend in-game currency (Crystals) or actual cash (MobbDollars) to buy new rooms, toys, clothes, food, and much more. It's also possible to buy eggs instead of chasing after a Mobble in the real world--saving gas and shoe soles in the process.
"Our generation grew up with Pokemon and Tamagotchi," says Alexandre Curtelin, co-founder of Mobbles Corp. "With Mobbles, we distilled the Pokemon experience to its basic components and added location-based and augmented reality gameplay--resulting in an experience more akin to magic than gaming. You'll never forget the day you captured your first Mobble."
The features included in Mobbles are as followed:
-- 50+ different Mobbles are available at launch.
-- New Mobbles appear in the wild every week.
-- Once a player catches a Mobble, it's no longer available--and other players can't catch it.
-- Mobbles are dynamic rather than static--often changing their positions several times throughout the day.
-- Players are notified when Mobbles need them (i.e., when they're hungry, tired or bored).
-- Each Mobble has a personal universe, with clothing to match (e.g., Sploon's theme is Hawaii, Ribble is a scientist).
-- Mobbles level up--unlocking new content; once a Mobble hits Level 5 ("adopted"), it is happy and will no longer ask players to take care of it.
-- When Mobbles are happy, they drop Crystals that players can use to buy new stuff.
-- By completing small achievements (e.g., bathing them before they go to sleep, feeding them breakfast), players gain experience or Crystals.
-- Players can add friends and trade Mobbles.
