[prMac.com] Derby, United Kingdom - Hyperion Games is thrilled to announce our latest Christmas holiday themed game: Christmas Sledging 1.1. Can Leebo save Christmas?
Leebo loves sledging; he is out sledging on Christmas eve (past his bed time) and sees Santa. But Santa's sledge slips on an icy patch and drops some presents. Santa asks Leebo to help collect and deliver presents otherwise some houses will go without. Is Leebo (the player) up to the task? - Can Leebo save Christmas?
Simply sledge down the icy hills, collect presents, gain speed and jump off the peaks, once airborne throw the presents to the houses using the targeting system. This is a fast paced dynamic game, simple to play and difficult to master.
There are many missions, and variations such as speed race, scoring and collection tasks.
Sounds simple - or is it?
Christmas Sledging is fully integrated with Apple's Game Center Leaderboard for the competitive player.
Fans of Tiny Wings (Apple's Game of the Year) will be familiar with the hill and flight dynamics, but the additional challenge of landing the sledge to collect presents, and using the house delivery targeting system both add a brand new twist to an emerging game format.
