Small Update Today

Hey Everyone!

We posted a small update today to Intake. Here's what changed!

ːbluepillːSpecial Levels start at level 10, not level 5!
ːpinkpillːChallenge Modes only unlock if YOU get to the level. Watching one show up in attract mode doesn't cut it anymore!
ːbluepillːNew players start with 5000mg
ːpinkpillːIf you die, and then pause, there was a bug where pills would spawn anyway. That's been fixed. I think.

Not a lot, but we hope you enjoy!

  • Gameplay: Removed the game over level bonus from appearing in level one.

  • Bug fix: The rank badge display in Challenge Mode always shows the proper rank.

Fast, responsive, challenging. The unlockable music is pretty decent, even if a bit repetitive if you play for 30 minutes straight. Gave it a try when the price was -85% but you won't feel ripped if you pay full price for this one.

It is a entertaining casual game. Well, it was. With the changes they made, to make it harder, it is good only for hardcore gamers, now. Too bothersome to just enjoy a few minutes of distraction.

Warning - this game may cause epileptic fits. Intake is a fast-pace shooter esque game in which you click pills before they reach the bottom. Sounds simple, but when they're flashing everywhere and shooting down to the bottom, Intake's gameplay becomes intense and highly rewarding when you complete a set of levels. The soundtrack, while limited to only 5 songs, is interchangable and add to the fast-paced, heartrate increasing gameplay.

Intake is certainly worth the miniscule price for hours of intense gameplay. It gets an 8/10.

This game is an underknown little gem of minimalist gameplay.

It asks you to click some falling pills to explode them before they hit the lower part of the screen. There is a color switch system.
- Pills come in two colors, shoot the pills of the same color or switch colors anytime)
- Black flashbang pills to avoid
The gameplay has a few more subtle points: explosions push away nearby pills, pills can collide together, etc.
After every short level, you get rewarded with a circle of bonus coins you have to hit quickly. CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK !

To break the monotony every once in a while,, you get a special level with one difficulty setting pushed much higher, like much more pills onscreen ("flood" levels), or less pills onscreen with a much faster falling speed.
This is 100% skill based and feels like a nice mouse aiming / reaction time skill test.
I think the game is entirely procedural/randomized. It just gets harder until you eventually lose.

There are some bonuses here and them (items, unlockable) which you should have all unlocked in a few hours hours. Hopefully they do not distract too much from the gameplay (just like the special levels, they help break the monotony).

About the graphics: they do their job. Pretty but the readibility is good, which is absolutely necessary for a fast-paced game like this. There are some nice hommages to arcade some will catch :) With some tweaks to difficulty and items, this would sure make an excellent arcade game. If arcades still existed. Whatever.

Last but not least, the game comes with a huge amount of achievements and ... leaderboards =)

Highly recommended.

Does anyone miss Dr. Mario besides me? Well look no further, Intake is here for your gamer pill fix. Capsules rain down from the top of the screen; don’t let them touch the bottom, or it’ll be game over. It’ll only take you a few minutes to learn the concept of this game, but don’t allow that to fool you; your reflexes will be put to the test!

Intake was developed by Cipher Prime Studios. They are a small indie developer out of Philadelphia, PA. I only recently heard of this studio and was not familiar with any of their titles until I started playing this one. Now I own their entire catalog.

I got this off the Humble Bundle. At the price point I paid for the bundle of games ($5), this game is well worth it.

I want to point out that this game is exactly like the description - a mix between Dr. Mario and Ikagura. It's quick, colorful, and extremely arcade-like. You're gathering points here, not trying to save the world. Intake embraces the dubstep/club plus drug culture. Maybe it doesn't, since you're 'shooting' the drugs.

Either way, it's a nice little puzzle game.

I love Intake. I grabbed it awhile back before it was on Steam and loved it - how excited was I when a few months later I noticed I could activate it in my library!

It's a sleeper hit, unknown gem, whatever adjective pair you want to use to describe it is applicable. It's well polished, addictive, and fast paced - like the best Shmups (might be why I'm so drawn to it).

The premise is simple: click on pills to make them explode. Two colors come down at once, right click to swap between colors, build combos, and set high scores.

In execution, it gets tricky: the music is blaring, your palms are sweating, and the pills keep coming. You click and click and click but the waves keep coming down.

It's intensely fun with superb sound design. Speaking of which, make sure you have some solid headphones. You'd be doing yourself a disservice if you had little cheapo earbuds in while you played this. The best experience is engrossed with your nose an inch from the monitor and the EDM soundtrack and high-quality sound effects bursting your eardrums.

The visuals are really nice too. Nothing too complex, a few particle effects and some color shadings but the game pulls it together into a great, color popping aesthetic.

As for settings options, for an indie game this guy is packed full of them. Full featured color-blind modes, "gartnervision", which gives background to the landscape mode the game is set in, a full suite of upgrades to unlock and turn on and master, even different game modes and challenges including a "No Nonsense" mode which cuts out bonus levels and keeps you in the heat of things longer and at a faster pace. You can really tell with the available settings, options, and unlocks that the developers really cared about this game and took the time to polish all the edges - even the flavor text for your power ups has funny little quips that fit the theme of the game.

Don't miss this one. I'd recommend it for just about any gamer with a love for pulse-pounding action, especially if you want something to pick up for short period of time play...if you can put it down.

-Be Aggressive.

P.S. - the quality of the soundtracks in the game is very high - the review video on Steam doesn't do it justice. You'll see what I mean the first time you load it up or you can compare it to the HQ video on their webiste:

You can also check out the soundtrack at their store page:
(Hint: if you like the music, you'll love the game - the songs are even better with explosions)

You wouldn't think clicking a bunch of colorful pills could be so addictive, but it's probably one of the most engaging games I've played in years. The music, the design, the increasing challenge, the unlockables, the EVERYTHING. Intake is one of those arcade-shooting experiences you can use to pass the time or, if you're brave, attempt to nab a spot on the leaderboard. It's worth every penny.
