[prMac.com] Derby, United Kingdom - Hyperion Games is thrilled to announce their latest action game, Fairy Hills HD 1.0. Can you save Norgar Forest, and help the Fairies? The Fairies of hilly Norgar Forest need a Hero to save them from an evil sorcerer's spell which has ruined their homes.
Can you be that hero
All was well in the tranquil fairy forest of Norgar, until one sad day when an evil sorcerer cast a spell on the forest destroying the fairies' homes, and bringing great sadness. The magic was too powerful for the fairies to overcome alone, and needs stronger Elf magic.
You play as a gallant Elf, whose aim is to help the fairies rid their homes of the evil sorcerer's dark magic, you will have to travel the forest of Norgar and collect bags of magic energy, then use these with Elf magic to fix the fairy houses.
Your transport is a glossy leaf, which glides over the dewey moss of Norgar forest. When sliding down the hills, touch the screen to be heavy and go faster. But not when sliding up hill - that will only make you will go slower.
When you gain enough speed, you become airborne, from there you can cast your elven magic and repair the homes, and eventually overcome the sorcerer's dark magic.
Sounds easy? Or is it.
Fairy Hills(TM) HD is fully integrated with Apple's Game Center Leaderboard for the competitive player.
Fans of Tiny Wings (Apple's Game of the Year) will be familiar with the hill and flight dynamics, but the additional challenge of landing the hero to collect magic, and using the magic to repair houses in flight both add a brand new twist to an emerging game format.
