[prMac.com] Nashville, Tennessee - Mezmo Media today is proud to introduce its latest app for iPhone and iPad, Tongue Flied, a fast-paced arcade game where players need quick reflexes and smart strategy to have their frog catch the insects flying high above in 28 levels. In Tongue Flied, players move their frog around ponds and swamps in search of their favorite food - delicious insects. With the bugs buzzing high above, players need to aim and shoot out their frog's extra-long tongue if they want to eat.
"Tongue Flied is a fun, fast-paced game with the right mix of action and strategy," said Christopher Rioux, Founder of Mezmo Media. "You will need perfect aim and quick moves if you want to catch the bugs and win!"
Players choose from different frogs and hop around the pond by tilting their device. Pressing the screen reveals cross hairs that players can drag around to aim. With a lift of the finger, the frog's laser-like tongue shoots out and snaps up any bug it lands on. Players of Tongue Flied can also bounce the tongue off trees to eat bugs in hard to reach spots. However, missing the target too many times means that the frog stays hungry.
Each new level in Tongue Flied brings fresh challenges as the bugs get harder to catch. To help, players can choose from 3 different frogs - each has their own strengths and abilities - but there is only a limited number of each so players need to think carefully.
Players can pick one of these frogs: an average all-around frog (eats anything), a super-long tongue frog (can't eat certain bugs), or a short but strong tongue frog (can't eat certain bugs but can break tree branches). Knowing which frog to use when can help players catch more bugs. Also, bouncing the frog's tongue off trees at an angle lets them munch on bugs that are normally out of reach.
However, frogs must be careful what they eat in the game. Flies and mosquitoes are tasty. Lightning bugs are tricky - they can only be seen when blinking. Players get random bonuses for butterflies. But spiders are dangerous to some frogs and should be avoided.
Features of the Tongue Flied game include:
* Fast-paced arcade game: Shoot the frog's long, sticky tongue to catch dinner before it flies away
