[prMac.com] San Francisco, California - NeonOwl LLC., an innovative new mobile applications developer currently focused on games, today announces the release of Hungry Bug for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This tilt-controlled arcade romp puts gamers in control of a little bug, navigating him to eat enough apples to stay alive as long as possible as while evading pesky moles and bug hungry dragons. Blending lightning quick action with a unique gaming style, Hungry Bug is currently available on the Apple App Store in the Games category.
This game is anything but a straight forward tilt-based arcade game. Like many popular titles, Hungry Bug's gameplay is a war of attrition, where the player's goal is simply to stay alive as long as possible and rack up the maximum amount of points in the process. That's basically where any similarity with other games end. Hungry Bug's gameplay is an addictingly frenetic mix of weaving and dodging as player's move their bug from one apple to the next around a maze of menacing moles while at the same time keeping a keen eye on any incoming dragons that might throw a fireball - or three - straight at our tiny hero. It's simple really. Eat enough apples to avoid starving, and react enough not to become dinner (roasted or raw) yourself.
Hungry Bug sports a number of features, items, and characters that ensure the game stays fresh after repeated plays and offers up a diverse visual flavor as well. Players can choose among ten unique unlockable bugs to battle appetites with, and the game offers up twelve unique bonus items to help the player's hungry hero get an edge while playing as well. The controls are as intuitive as they are simple to master - players simply tilt your mobile device in the direction they want to go. The game is fully integrated with Apple's Game Center for more socially inclined gamers who want to compete for high scores against other players with too. Anyone who's hungry for an adrenaline pumping mobile distraction that's as engaging as it is fun should get ready to get full with Hungry Bug.
