BulkyPix and FedoIT Satisfy Your Sweet Fix With Catch the Candy For iPhone/iPad

Addictive Physics Puzzler coming soon to the App Store

image

Paris, France and San Francisco, USA- April 8, 2011- Leading games publisher, BulkyPix, and indie game developer FedoIT are proud to announce the upcoming highly addictive physics puzzler ‘Catch the Candy’ for iPhone and iPad. This clever new title combines physics-oriented gameplay, bright visuals and a creative range of challenges for you to overcome as you attempt to reconnect with your beloved candy.

image

‘Catch the Candy’, puts you in control of a hungry little fuzzy creature as he uses his extendible grappling tongue to hunt down his candy. But it’s not so easy to reach, as he’s not able to move around on his own. He’ll have to use his tongue to latch onto objects in each of the game’s 53 stages, to get close enough to the candy to draw it to him.

image

With real-time physics and gameplay that’s both easy to pick up yet hard to put down, Catch the Candy will test you on each stage, as you try to reach your beloved treat in the fewest moves possible. The game also features full Openfeint and Game Center support, along with Facebook leaderboards so that you can check your ranking against other players.

“Catch the Candy is such a sweet delight,” says Aleksandr Fedoseev of FedoIT. “The gameplay is truly in a league by itself, using real-time physics to control the on-screen character while including simple touch-screen mechanics that players of all ages can get into it. It’s definitely a treat.”

“We’re happy to put our efforts into Catch the Candy,” stated Vincent Dondaine, COO of BulkyPix. “Its cartoon style brings the game delightfully to life, and it’s a whole lot of fun to play. And if a solution seems like it’s a little too out of reach, you can try grabbing onto other objects to find a new route to your beloved candy.”

Best of all, Catch the Candy will sell for $.99 upon its release in the App Store, perfect for those looking for a savoury snack, without leaving their wallets feeling sore.

Catch the Candy arrives at the beginning of May, just in time for your summertime sweet fix. For more information on the game and screens, please visit http://www.bulkypix.com/game/catch-the-candy
