Shuriken Chicken 1.0 for iOS: Stylized, Side Scroller with Ninja Chicken

in Games

[prMac.com] Melbourne, Australia - Games for Gummie today is pleased to introduce Shuriken Chicken 1.0 for iOS, their new, stylized, side scroller game where players control a ninja chicken. All backgrounds, objects, and characters are made from hand cut felt, then photographed for use in the game. There are several 2D animated layers, as the black clad chicken with a red comb tries to run as far as possible, leaping over or sliding under obstacles, and bouncing off trampolines and springboards. He eliminates enemies in the way using shuriken, ninja throwing stars. Players start with three lives and try to run as far as possible with the help of power-ups along the way and quick reflexes.

Feature Highlights:
* Unique art style, all graphics were hand cut from felt and photographed
* Fun, action packed, and highly addictive gameplay
* Simple gesture based controls: swipe up to jump, swipe down to slide, tap to throw a shuriken
* Collect sweet shuriken power-ups
* Over 30 Game Center Achievements
* Game Center leaderboards: compete with friends and the world to see who can run the furthest distance

Players control Shuriken Chicken using three simple gestures anywhere on the screen: swipe up to jump, swipe down to slide, and tap to throw shurikens. After negotiating the spiked, steel cubes on the ground and hanging from above, more difficult and deadly obstacles lay ahead. Ninja wizards, ninja ghouls, ninja robots, and flails on pendulums must be overcome. Power-ups include laser shurikens and rapid-fire throwing stars.

Gameplay is smooth and responsive, and the stocky chicken never stops moving his feet until he loses all his lives. Far more visually appealing than ordinary and sterile computer graphics, the many sizes and colors of felt in different layers create a randomly textured world that is both beautiful and unique. The designer has created elaborate objects like rockets made up of more than 10 felt pieces, which add aesthetic pleasures missing from ordinary games. Truly as much a hand-made, labor of love as an iOS game can be, Shuriken Chicken contains endless, witty, visual surprises and hour after hour of challenging, fast-paced gameplay.

"Shuriken Chicken lives the ninja life; short, full of intense action, and respawnable," commented Chen-Po Sun of Games for Gummie. "Truly fun and addictive, you'll have trouble stopping at just one game."

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
* Requires iOS 4.3 or later (iOS 5 tested)
* 16.9 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Shuriken Chicken 1.0 is $0.99 (USD) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Games category. Review copies are available on request.
