[prMac.com] Seoul, Korea - Amazing Kitty, a newly launched iOS game from Shiconal, is a feline-themed, pleasing puzzler perfectly suited for the casual game enthusiast. Amazing Kitty operates on the popular and familiar premise of matching like objects - the objects, in this instance, being an irresistible array of cartoon kitty cats. Fresh design, calculated cuteness, great animation and adorable sound effects give Amazing Kitty all of the professional polish it needs to compete with the hottest puzzlers iTunes has to offer. However, the developers behind these felines offer the fans something more than predictability in a quality package.
What sets Amazing Kitty apart from its vast pool of competitors in the puzzle genre is the manner in which the game's mechanics are handled. The goal is to tap on matches of 2 or more like kitties that touch; upon being touched, the kitties disappear and points are granted. What makes Amazing Kitty stand out is way players maneuver the kitties to meet; rather than rotating sets of cats, or manipulating cats as they fall from the top of the screen, players rotate, shake, and angle their device to move the kitties. As they do so, the kitty collection bounces freely around inside of the confines of the screen, tumbling to one side when slowly tilted, or being unpredictably scrambled when shaken.
The team behind the game hope that the smooth animation, creative execution, and realistic physics, combined with aesthetic appeal and smile-inducing whimsy will prove to be the perfect recipe for popularity. They'll soon find out: Amazing Kitty is available for download now, in the iTunes App Store, for $0.99.
