[prMac.com] Toronto, Ontario, Canada - Chaotic Box today announces the availability of Pollywog 1.0, a whimsical dodge'm/racing game for the Apple iPhone and iPod touch. Guide Pauly the Purple Pollywog on a quest for floating yum yums! Dodge obstacles at super speeds, collect time-bending powerups, and blast your way past the finish line to earn awards and unlock new levels.
Pollywog features a polished graphic style, realistic 2D physics, and a fun original soundtrack written exclusively for the game. Four level tiers and a total of nineteen unlockable levels are included in this initial release, with all new level packs planned for future updates.
Tilt your iPhone or iPod touch to dodge obstacles, and eat the floating yum yums to boost your speed. Falling behind is not an option! Tap the screen to shoot your water jet and blast obstacles out of the way - but watch out for immovable rocks! Collect super-boost powerups, time bonuses, and time warping yum yums to trigger awesome "bullet time" effects. Earn awards and cross the finish line with time to spare to unlock new levels.
Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Perfect awards are earned based on speed, dodging ability, number of yum yums collected, and overall skill. Earn Gold and Perfect awards to unlock increasingly difficult level tiers. Replay levels to improve your score and achieve that elusive "Perfect" run! Fast reflexes, memorization, and problem solving skills are all required to conquer Pollywog's levels.
Pollywog is perfectly tailored for the iPhone and iPod touch with its simple and intuitive tap-and-tilt controls. The accessible gameplay is great for quick sessions at home, while waiting in line, or on the go.
* iPhone or iPod Touch 2.2.1 or later
