[prMac.com] Herzelia, Israel - Human G&A today is pleased to announce the February 2013 release of Mega Dragon Run 1.0 for iOS, its new sidescrolling platformer. The soon-to-be-released game offers three playing modes: Arcade, Play with Friends, and Quick. To mark the announcement, the company has permanently changed their popular paid games, Mishu the Dragon and Feed Chooki, to free games on the iTunes App Store. Mega Dragon Run will be a sequel to Mishu, with more dragons, new heroes, innovative power-ups, collectables, and advanced levels. Also included will be real-time tournaments, automatic updates, and social features powered by Nextpeer, the online multiplayer gaming service.
Played in landscape orientation, Mega Dragon Run uses two thumb-controllers. One tap on the button allows players to make the running dragon jump or holding the button lets the dragon fly. The right thumb-controller enables the fire-breathing dragon to scorch enemies in its path. A Flight Meter indicates how much longer the dragon can fly without running to recharge. In Arcade mode, players are scored by the distance covered, the number of enemies killed, and the number of gold coins gathered. Achieving cumulative scores allows players to level-up, and buy stronger dragons and power-ups in the store.
Players start with Mishu the Dragon and when gaining XP's and passing levels can get Misha the Dragoness, Commando Mishu, Bionic Mishu Dragon, Superhero Mishu, Sensei the Master, and finally Mega Dragon. Power-ups include: Bouncing Balls of Fire, 3-Second Shield, Coin Magnet, Monster Dragon, 3-Second Speed Boost, 3-Second Flight Meter Freeze, Long Fireball, 4-Second Shield, 4-Second Coin Magnet, Multiple Speed Boosts, Triple Fire, Super Shield, and more.

Mega Dragon Run, though a single player game, allows competitors to participate in real-time, multiplayer tournaments.

Enabled by Nextpeer, the multiplayer gaming service, players can now be matched against opponents in live tournaments.
"Mega Dragon Run contains huge improvements over the graphics, features, and gameplay of its predecessor, Mishu the Dragon," commented Michael Katseli of Human G&A. "Until Mega Dragon Run is released, we invite all gamers to enjoy our other games, now available free, Mishu the Dragon & Feed Chooki."
