Chicken Invaders® 4 Christmas Game Launched for iPod, iPhone, iPad

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Athens, GR -- December 2, 2012 -- InterAction studios announced today the immediate availability of the Christmas Edition of "Ultimate Omelette", the most eagerly-awaited Chicken Invaders® episode to be brought to the iOS platform. The game comes in two editions: Standard Definition (SD) for iPod and iPhone devices (including support for iPhone 5), and High Definition (HD) for iPad devices. Both editions have been optimized to run at 60 frames per second, offer novice and advanced control methods, and support Game Center integration. A basic demo of the game is available for free from iTunes and can be fully unlocked through in-app purchasing.

The Christmas Edition is characterized by festively dressed chickens which attack relentlessly in colorful groups and meticulously choreographed formations. The chicken fray is punctuated by fights against massive enemies disguised as Christmas elves, Santas, and other well-known holiday figures. Major enemies are also appropriately decorated with rows of blinking Christmas lights. Christmas ornaments, bows, ribbons, bells, and holly fly everywhere during the heat of battle. Floating Christmas gifts can be collected in order to extend the arsenal at the player's disposal. There's even a suitably festive snow blizzard -- in deep space! On-screen action is accompanied by original renditions of popular Christmas carols, composed specifically for this episode.

Chicken Invaders® was introduced in 1997, with the game series making its first public appearance in 1999. Since then, it has won over 50 awards and has been downloaded over 150,000,000 times. It has been translated to 13 languages and made available in 154 countries, reaching Windows, Mac and Linux platforms, mobile phones, and retail outlets alike.
