HoHoHo Hero for iOS will Captivate Casual Gamers this Christmas Season

No Comments

Minsk, Belarus – Ultralab today is happy to announce the release of HoHoHo Hero – Santa’s Candy Cane, their new Christmas themed game for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. The idea behind HoHoHo Hero is perfectly simple: on a snowy Christmas Eve evening Santa Claus is making his way across the icy rooftops carrying a sack of gifts. Santa uses a Candy Cane to get from one roof to another. As one holds the finger on the screen, the Candy Cane stretches. The finger should be released once the Cane reaches the required length. If the Candy Cane is too short, Santa falls and the game ends. Likewise, if the cane is too long and stretches over the target rooftop, Santa falls and the game is over. Obviously, one needs to have a good eye to score many points in HoHoHo Hero.

The game can be played at a relaxed speed: users can take their time and have short breaks each time Santa has safely landed onto the rooftop. The game is not that easy as it might seem. The points are hard to acquire, yet the Santa’s cheering HoHoHo exclamation after the fall makes losing less frustrating.

Cute winter art makes HoHoHo Hero an appealing game for both kids and adults alike: a peacefully snuffling moon, fluffy snowflakes falling quietly onto the sleepy town, glittering Christmas lights and more. Add a cheerful festive soundtrack, and you’ll get a perfect app for this holiday season! HoHoHo Hero is all the we love about Christmas packed in a charming and challenging iOS game.

Device requirements:
* iPhone, iPad and iPod touch
* Optimized for iPhone 5 and 6
* Requires iOS 7.1 or later
* 24.6 MB

New Egyptian Strategy Game Rocks the iPad

No Comments

Kent, Washington – Indie game developer Shelly Data Doodles today announces the world wide release of Pyramid Pathways, a new, challenging Egyptian-themed Strategy Board Game for the iPad. Pyramid Pathways presents the challenge of a two player Strategy Board Game plus the excitement of Hidden Treasure Quests. Test your game playing skills as you compete one-on-one both locally and with Game Center friends around the world. To improve your game strategy, enter pyramid pathways on quests and discover hidden wildcards. Then Rule the board like a Pharaoh of Egypt!

Board Game play is based on one simple concept. Use hieroglyph game pieces to construct a connected pathway from end-to-end (Red) or top-to-bottom (Blue). At the same time, prevent your opponent from completing their pathway.

Mix and match both local and Game Center match-based play in up to four separate games at once with friends or challengers from around the world.

To assist your game play, journey beneath the pyramid in search of Hidden Treasure and Bonus Wildcards. Within the pyramid’s pathways you will encounter stories of the ancient Egyptian gods Osiris, Isis, Seth, Nephthys, Horus and Anubis, and help restore order within their ancient kingdom. Along your journey, catch mummies, cobras, bats, and gold scarab beetles to capture coins and puzzle pieces. But -> Do Not Tap the Cat!

Pyramid Pathways was created with the assistance of our Cairo-based partner Memphis Tours Egypt who provided Egyptian cultural consulting, local artifact images, and a full game translation into Arabic! They also left a surprise or two to be discovered deep within the hidden rooms of the pyramid. Memphis Tours Egypt has been providing quality tours of the pyramids of Egypt and the Middle East since 1955. Find out more about them on their website.

After selecting the difficulty level and the picture they would like to solve, kids are shown the illustration in black and white. Displayed on the right side of the screen in a slot are several colored pieces of the puzzle. The child must drag-and-drop the puzzle piece into the correct location upon the picture. Once the correct location is selected, the puzzle piece is set and another piece of the puzzle drops into the slot.

The app also encourages logical and creative thinking and cultivates patience. Children can learn how to compare parts of a whole and strengthen their language skills. Most importantly, Whiz Kid: Puzzles can foster independent play and develop the child’s intelligence.

Help Save The Kitties with Crazy Cat Lady Cat-astrophe 1.52 – Updated

No Comments

Sydney, Australia – LeThorne today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of Crazy Cat Lady Cat-astrophe 1.52, an update to their fun, feline-inspired arcade game for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices. Due to the post-Christmas flush of unwanted cat gifts being dropped off at Cat Havens, animal activists have broken in and liberated the poor kitties. Since their freedom, cats have been sighted at 12 different tourist destinations across Australia. This has inadvertently resulted in a disruption to the surrounding ecosystems, including an increase in the number of mice and dogs. Animal Control teams have been dispatched to capture the cats and players must help Crazy Cat Lady collect the unwanted kitties before time runs out.

Feature Highlights:
* Free and Pro versions available
* Comfortable and simple tap-to-play gameplay
* Travel to Australia’s national icons with 12 levels that become progressively more challenging
* Original music and fun sound effects
* Thrift Shoppe for various in-app purchases
* Game Center-supported
* Tutorial]

Crazy Cat Lady Cat-astrophe involves a simple tap-to-play gameplay. To move the Crazy Cat Lady across the screen, the player must tap the screen to her left or right. To make the Crazy Cat Lady move more quickly, the player must tap the screen more frequently in the required direction.

After the player has aligned the Crazy Cat Lady below the falling cat, the player must tap above the Crazy Cat Lady so she extends her arms. The kitties can only be caught if the Crazy Cat Lady’s arms are up. Too much reaching can make the Crazy Cat Lady tired and cranky, so her arms should only be extended when a cat is near. Catching cats makes Crazy Cat Lady happy so players must keep an eye on the Happiness Meter and status bar to win the level. If Crazy Cat Lady drops too many cats, she becomes sad. If the Crazy Cat Lady becomes too sad or the timer runs out, the game ends.

Each of the 12 levels of Crazy Cat Lady Cat-astrophe is progressively more challenging and introduces a variety of enemies that Crazy Cat Lady must face to be successful in her quest to save the kitties. Dogs scare the cats and mice attract the cats so they cannot be caught. Animal Control has a net that will steal all of the cats the Crazy Cat Lady has collected during the level. If Animal Control succeeds, this will make the Crazy Cat Lady very sad so the player wants to avoid this scenario at all costs.

Available in both Pro and free versions, Crazy Cat Lady Cat-astrophe contains colorful graphics, original music, and sound effects. The free version contains ads and the ability to select special features individually for in-app purchase in the Thrift Shoppe. In the Pro version of Crazy Cat Lady Cat-astrophe, there are no ads and all special features are available at a discounted cost. These special features include:

* Catching buckets – used by the Crazy Cat Lady to catch cats instead of using her arms
* Faster movement – increases the Crazy Cat Lady’s speed
* Reduced cat gravity – the cats fall more slowly
* Ability to save, mute, and automatically post to Facebook

“Crazy Cat Lady Cat-astrophe 1.52 is a fun and frivolous, feline-inspired game suitable for all ages,” says Aaron Le Saux of LeThorne. “The player travels through Australia’s most famous iconic locations to help Crazy Cat Lady save the kitties and expand her cat family. In fact, after each level, players can upload the picture of all the cats Crazy Cat Lady has collected to Facebook. The more levels of Crazy Cat Lady Cat-astrophe that the player can conquer, the harder the game becomes so players can always be challenged. In the update, Game Center integration is provided to Crazy Cat Lady Cat-astrophe, so players can also upload their high scores and issue challenges to their friends.”

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch
* Requires iOS 5 or later
* 15.3 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Crazy Cat Lady Cat-astrophe Pro 1.52 is only $1.99 (USD) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Games category. There is also a free version available in the App Store and Android versions on Google Play.
