[prMac.com] Cupertino, California - Happy hiker meets the meanest sheep in the mountains in a family-friendly carnie app great for every age. If you've ever thrown a dart, tossed a ball or ringed a bottle at the local county fair, you know the fun of the old-fashioned boardwalk skill games. And with Yodel-Oh!, Spinlight Studio is bringing it back, in an app that so faithfully reproduces the old tin-style carnie games that you can almost taste the cotton candy on the tip of your tongue. Or - in this case - the strudel.
All the fast-paced Alpine action revolves around Hans, a happy mountain climber with maidens on his mind - and a pack of cheesed-off sheep on his six. Game play is simple. Hit all the right targets - including RamBam, LambBam and the rest of the bleatin' clan, to rack up valuable points. Miss them, and Hans takes a few steps up the hill. Nab the high score before Hans takes a header off the cliff and you'll be crowned the next King of the Alps. Win or lose, there's a lot to love, from the fast-tapping game action to a soundtrack that features authentic yodeling and more accordions than you can shake a schnitzel at.
It's all delivered courtesy of Spinlight, a Top-100 app developer that previously made its name in early education. "With AlphaTots and TallyTots, we taught kids how to count and say their letters. With Yodel-Oh!, we're going for a much bigger audience," says Matt Hutton, Partner and Creative Director of Spinlight Studio. "Namely anyone with opposable thumbs."
