[prMac.com] Queensland, Australia - eLabs today is pleased the announce the release and immediate availability of Kicka for Kids 1.0, their new arcade-style game for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices. In Kicka for Kids, an ostrich, a monkey, a chimp, and a baby giraffe must use their feet to kick a log past several obstacles such as lakes, quicksand, tornadoes, and other animals like lions, alligators, hippos, and bears. The user must guess how strong the kick must be to successfully dodge these obstacles.
There are four different levels of gameplay in Kicka for Kids. In the Beginner level, players tap the (+) or (-) buttons to adjust the power they desire their animal to use when they kick the log. In the Intermediate, Advanced and Expert levels, players simply hold down the green Kicker button until the power bar fills up to the level they desire.
Players win points each time they successfully get through the gaps. Points will be deducted whenever the player gets caught by one of the obstacles. Bonus points are awarded and achievements can be earned with each level. The game is automatically saved each time the log comes to rest against the kicka.
When the first achievement is earned in Kicka for Kids, the log is upgraded to a green coin. For each achievement earned following that, the player's coin is upgraded to a new color. Achievements are awarded at 50,000, 100,000, 500,000, 1,000,000, 1,500,000, 2,000,000, and 2,500,000 points. Additionally, for each achievement earned, the player is awarded higher bonus points and a free Kicka pass. Kicka passes can be used to skip a particularly difficult part or even on the last shot to guarantee a bonus.
