NEW YORK -- June 30, 2016 -- Tapinator, Inc. (Ticker: TAPM) and Boarding Party Games proudly announce the release of Combo Quest 2 exclusively on iOS. The first sequel to the hit role-playing classic, Combo Quest 2 delivers more heroes, more epic combos, and new items over 90 levels of non-stop action. Players looking for a retro RPG experience mixed with the frantic pace of a rhythm game can download Combo Quest 2 for FREE starting today.

Combo Quest 2 picks up where its predecessor left off: The mighty Knight has returned to his kingdom after recapturing the King’s crown from a devious dragon. Unfortunately, the Kingdom is in shambles -- and the Knight must gather magical heroes, befriend loyal companions, and collect powerful items to vanquish evil from the realm.

The signature time-tap combat system is at the heart of Combo Quest 2. Battles are fought by tapping the device at the exact moment a slider passes over different colored blocks. The bigger the combo, the faster the slider moves -- increasing the chances of failure. If players manage to execute a big enough combo, they will unleash an ultimate move that deals massive damage.

Each colored block triggers different actions during battle. Yellow blocks attack, green blocks trigger abilities, red blocks shield players from damage, and purple blocks trigger an opponent’s special attacks. Some blocks have special properties (such as shields that require multiple taps to break) or bombs that will destroy all the blocks around them. Players will need to stay on their toes to avoid a fiery defeat...

There are 20 different heroes to choose from -- with unique abilities such as expanding the size of enemy blocks (making them easier to tap) and increasing the chance of getting a critical hit. Players will also need to think quickly to make sure they’re going for the most potent combos. Once a battle is won, it’s time to upgrade each character’s stats!

“Since Combo Quest launched in 2015, it has amassed an incredibly loyal following that has provided us with great feedback,” says Ilya Nikolayev, CEO of Tapinator, Inc. “Players wanted more heroes and animations, new levels and items -- you name it! I’m happy to confirm that Combo Quest 2 has all this and more.”
