[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - Leading independent games developer Big Pixel Studios has announced that their latest iOS title, Land-a Panda, will be released today.
The world's panda population is in decline, and Land-a Panda's mission is to resolve this crisis! Players control a young lovestruck male panda called Yang Guang, whose goal is to meet his dream partner, a female panda called Tian Tian, in this highly innovative puzzle game. Players must use a variety of unique cannons, pickups, and obstacles to blast Yang Guang within reach of the beautiful Tian Tian, although it's important to collect some golden coins along the way or she may not be impressed!
This clever new title combines a unique gameplay mechanism with a simple and intuitive touch control system, a wide variety of levels, and beautiful High Definition graphics.
"Land-a Panda is one of a small handful of games which appeal to gamers of all levels," said Paul Virapen, Big Pixel Studios Managing Director. "The simple pick-up-and-play style is well suited to casual gamers, but still provides a considerable challenge to those who want to accomplish everything the game has to offer."
OpenFeint and Apple Game Center support add another layer of depth to Land-a Panda. With a multitude of achievements to unlock, leaderboards, and social features, it will keep even the most avid of gamers coming back for more.
Pricing and Availability:
Land-a Panda (iPhone and iPod touch) and Land-a Panda HD (iPad) are available on the App Store from today at $0.99 and $1.99 respectively. Lite versions are also available for free from the App Store. Promo codes are available for press reviews.
