[prMac.com] NSW, Australia - The Partnership of Athanasia Papos & Mathew Luke Desira today is pleased to introduce Tree Ninja 1.0 for iOS. Its new sidescroller where players control a New Age Ninja who skilfully downs trees for timber with a chain saw, while protecting the surrounding wildlife. The objective of the game is to collect all of butterflies, birds' nests, ladybugs, and the golden sword. Players must avoid boulders, fallen trees, bees, reindeer, snakes, eagles, and hawks, and they must use strategy and speed to level up. Completely free of violence, the Ninja must cut trees carefully to save nests and avoid bee stings.
* Non-violent, New Age Ninja
* Ninja downs trees for timber while protecting wildlife
* Sidescroller includes L/R controller and Jump controller
* Players collect butterflies, birds' nests, ladybugs, and the golden sword using touch control
* Players must avoid boulders, tree stumps, bees, reindeer, snakes, eagles, and hawks
Featuring realistic graphics and animation, Tree Ninja includes a Left/Right movement controller on the lower left, and a Jump controller on the lower right. Players collect objects using touch control. The chain saw is also operated using touch control, by swiping with the right thumb.
With the game timer running, players are challenged to chop down trees by starting with the branches first and then cutting into the trunk, which helps the Ninja avoid being stung by bees and attacked by birds. Vertical swipes of the chain saw remove the branches, and then quick horizontal swipes across the tree's bottom and top avoid accidentally cutting through a bee's nest.
The Ninja's energy bar increases by collecting ladybugs, butterflies, and birds' nests. The Ninja loses energy by being attacked by birds or bees, by hitting rocks and stumps of fallen trees, and by running into snakes or bumping into reindeer.
The game features changes in weather. By blowing on the iDevice, the rain stops, the clouds disappear, and the weather becomes sunny again. Also adding realism to gameplay are sound effects of animals and chain saws.
"Armed with a chainsaw, new age Ninja fights against the elements of the earth and overcomes nature's obstacles," commented Athanasia Papos. "Defeating wild weather, Tree Ninja strategically averts from harming animals with precise and quick chopping of trees. Avoiding the birds and the bees which are making his mission impossible."
* iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
* Requires iOS 4.3 or later
* 21.8 MB
