Indigopearl is pleased to inform me that Ice Age : Dawn of the Dinosaurs game is about to hit the iTunes App Store soon. For those who are a fan of Ice Age 3, this game is a must-have especially for people who like the movie character Scrat.
Packed with chills and thrills, the game features the diehard and tormented saber-toothed squirrel, Scrat, who just can’t seem to get…hold…of…that…acorn!
Acorn-obsessed and oblivious to climatic perils faced by the rest of the movie’s characters, Scrat is as single-minded as they come: nothing will stop him from reaching his prize. That said, Mother Nature and every creature further up the food chain are inadvertently stacking the odds against him.
In Scrat’s new iPhone adventure, life is not looking any easier, but at least this time he has you to lend him a helping hand. Set across four perilous and puzzle-filled zones — including ice caves, snow, mist-filled caves, and jungle — Scrat pursues delicious acorns as players use a revolutionary on-screen control system to direct him to his goal.
Created by the award-winning developers, Two Tribes, whose previous iPhone games include the massively fun Toki Tori, and published worldwide by Chillingo, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs has been crafted to mirror the charming characters and detailed environments that captivated movie-goers when the film released earlier this year. The game will be available to download from Apple’s App Store in November 2009.

· Replay value due to collectible system.
About Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (2009) feature film
The sub-zero heroes from the worldwide blockbusters ICE AGE and ICE AGE: THE MELTDOWN are back, on an incredible adventure… and in 3-D. This time, they’re beneath the ice, discovering a world of dinosaurs.
ICE AGE: DAWN OF THE DINOSAURS has everything audiences loved about the first two films, adding even more comedy, action, and spectacular visuals. Our beloved heroes live on, with some memorable new characters thrown into the Ice Age mix.
Also new to the Ice Age franchise is an incredible and immense underground world populated by dinosaurs. The lush world provides a sharp contrast to the wintry environs of the first two Ice Age films, and dwarfs even the vastness of the above-ground Ice Age. It’s a land of danger, massive creatures, mammal-eating plants, a daredevil weasel, a wily romantic foil for Scrat – named Scratte – and areas with names like the Chasm of Death, and the Plates of Woe. Even Manny the Mammoth – the B.M.O.C. (Big Mammal on Campus) in the Ice Age – feels puny in this immense world. “When the dinosaurs show up, Manny is no longer ‘king of the jungle,’” says comedy legend Ray Romano, who returns as the voice of filmdom’s most famous woolly mammoth.
