October 30, 2014

Uncover the secrets of a dark and mysterious house in Haunted Manor. We also have a storybook app that tells the tale of a girl and her battle with strange monsters, and a photography app that allows you to layer textures.

No matter how many times you utilize Pixology, you’ll always be able to come out with something totally original thanks to its many different layering options. You’re able to adjust the parameters of your base photo before beginning the layer process. When layering you’re able to choose from photos in your own library, take new ones to use as layers, or choose from the built-in texture library. The library includes 12 categories, with loads and loads of options in each. Each layer can be moved, rotated, resized, and made more or less transparent. You’re also able to reorder and delete layers.

You’ll also have to place towers in strategic positions to keep the hordes at bay.
