[prMac.com] Henderson, Nevada - Shark Apps, LLC today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of Happy Naut 1.0, its entertaining new side-scrolling jumping game developed for iOS and Android devices. Players take on the role of a hopping alien astronaut - or Hoppy Naut - in order to traverse diverse landscapes, avoid exotic obstacles, and collect coins. In an exciting twist, the terrain changes for every turn, offering hours of repeated gameplay.
"With Hoppy Naut, you just never know what kind of world you're going to encounter," says Tony Godfrey, the game's creator. "It's absolutely addictive. As the landscape changes, even for a world you've mastered, you get to learn all over again where to jump over a chasm, avoid a barrier, or earn that stash of coins."
The endless variety of this casual side-scroller means that each landscape in Hoppy Naut is playable multiple times. Players can focus their attention on beating old scores and winning coins to unlock additional playable Naut characters and up to six different game worlds. Coins can be found by landing on creepy-crawlies or searching for them throughout the terrain, including large caches of riches stored in strange alien towns. Hoppy Naut also allows players to earn Achievements by reaching fun goals, as well as to compete on Leaderboards for the highest score.
Under development since June 2015, Hoppy Naut's game mechanics were created originally as a proof-of-concept in only a few weeks, and it only took 7 months of development to release the app in 10 major languages. Hoppy Naut is free to play, and any in-app purchase also removes ads. All advertising is on an opt-in basis - players can receive a gift of coins by watching a sponsored video, or skip the video entirely and continue playing.
