Story

What happens when the fairytale world of a cute little girl turns into a cursed kingdom where she is queen? Her favorite plushie sets out to save her, of course. Guiding her loyal plush through several haunted meadows and creepy castles, you must use your wits to bring down the Evil voodoo mouse and his army of wacky minions! It’ simple; get to the castle, save the princess. You’ve seen it before, but not like this. PLUSHED! The adventures of the reluctant bunny knight

Character Concepts

The video shows the special way of direct interaction between the player and the world. In the first scene the bunny collects a Pizza. After that the player drags the Pizza around which wakes the Pizza Eater up. Then, in order to reach the Ladybug-coins, the player has to “feed” the Pizza Eater by dropping the Pizza  above his head so that the Pizza Eater can be used as a trampoline.

This scene makes the unique interaction of the game (in the game the player will have the possibility to interact with pizzas, mirrors, keys and more), which is used in the same way in the further levels, very easy to understand for the casual gamer.

Ever called a taxi and wondered why it was taking so long to get to you? Or sat in the back seat and thought it was taking too long to get where you wanted to go?

Taxi Jam is your chance to show them how it should be done!
Your job as the cab driver is to navigate through the city streets to pick up your fare before they get fed up waiting and change their mind. Get to them in time, then drop them at their destination as fast as you can to earn points.

As you speed through the streets, watch out for fire trucks, police cars, buses and bikes! Accidents will cost you!

If the hazards of the city traffic weren’t enough, in Taxi Jam you’re not just the driver, you’re also the Taxi Controller.

You have to decide how many cabs you need on the city streets at one time. Too few and you might miss the fares. Too many, and you’re quite literally going to run into trouble!

Now there is a football game which everyone can play. The game features game play simple enough for the casual gamer yet deep enough to satisfy the hardcore football nut.

The game features Real vibrating football action (like the original, though this feature can be turned off to save iPhone battery, 3 difficulty settings, over 20 different preset plays ready to go in your playbook.

You can tilt, rotate and turn the iPhone to get your ideal viewpoint. Watch the action from behind your team, in front of them, from the sidelines, or from the air. When you rotate your iPhone, you can see the characters in the game like Lego characters waiting to grab the football.

Play the game from the vantage point that works best for you or mix it up and use them all. Experience the thrill of unlocking achievements and bragging about your stats in the online leader boards. And for intense two player split-screen merriment, challenge a friend to a game on the field.

I will certainly think this is an epic game from Steamroller Studios which is worth waiting for. Chillingo is the official game publisher for this game.

Let’s look forward to this game in iTunes soon.
