[prMac.com] Vancouver, Canada - Dingo Games is proud to present Tasty Planet: Back for Seconds, a game of growth for Mac and Windows. In Back for Seconds players control a ball of goo with the ability to eat anything smaller than itself. The more it eats, the bigger it gets. By the end of the game, players are able to eat the entire world (and more).
Tasty Planet: Back for Seconds is the sequel to Dingo Games' well received original game, Tasty Planet. As with any sequel, Back for Seconds has quite a few improvements over the original. Levels can now span vastly different object sizes; players can grow from the size of an amoeba to the size a galaxy within a single level. The game also adds a two player cooperative campaign mode in which each player controls their own goo. This mode is local only, so you'll have to huddle around the keyboard to take advantage of it.
The game's story begins with the goo eating a time machine, causing him to be sent back in time. Players will eat their way through six different time periods: modern, Late Cretaceous (i.e. dinosaurs), Ancient Egypt, Ancient Rome, Feudal Japan, and the distant future. Each time period features a unique set of objects for players to eat. Mice, cats, Tyrannosaurus Rex, mummies, gladiators, and flying saucers are just a few of the hundreds of objects available for consumption. A free demo is available at Dingo Games' website.
Dingo Games is an independent game developer located in Vancouver, Canada.

Tasty Planet: Back for Seconds is their latest project, a sequel to the well received original Tasty Planet. Copyright (C) 2010 Dingo Games. All Rights Reserved.
