HappyGiant Releases New Screenshots of its Highly Anticipated Dolphin Paradise: Wild Friends For iOS

Shelburne Falls, MA, USA, October 1st, 2012 - As the buzz surrounding the upcoming 3D pet-sim Dolphin Paradise: Wild Friends from HappyGiant grows ( http://www.dolphinparadiseapp.com), the developer today released a new set of screens to showcase its hyper-realistic graphics. The exciting new screens and artwork include images featuring a breathtaking underwater environment, as well as various dolphins and orcas you will encounter in the game. In addition to the animals, the images also highlight some of the numerous tricks and feats you can perform while playing with your very own dolphin.

Mike Levine, President and Founder of HappyGiant, was inspired years ago when he was lucky enough to swim with wild dolphins in Kaikoura, New Zealand. He was so mesmerized with their grace and wild beauty, he held onto the idea to eventually turn it into a virtual experience. The development studio spent a tremendous amount of time combining beautiful visuals with pet-sim care, nurturing and trick training to create an engaging game loop. The overall effect is a magical "bonding experience" for players and their dolphins.

Dolphin Paradise: Wild Friends dazzles from the moment you meet your first dolphin. The simulation is so realistic that you can almost taste the salty water in the lagoon and feel the dolphin's skin as you pet him.  The game is all about building a bond with your special sea-fairing friends. Your pets will require love, affection and feeding in order to stay happy. You'll spend time taking care of your dolphin as you learn about its environment and build a friendship, all the while taking on various missions.  You'll teach your dolphin tricks to help advance it though the ranks and you will eventually unlock various performance shows where you can show off your pet's high jumping tricks.

There is plenty of content to explore as players can purchase different food types, custom props for tricks, decorations for shows and additional dolphins and other sea mammals like an orca! You can also share pictures of your dolphins with your friends and invite them to join the game via Twitter, Facebook, Email and other methods.

Features:

  • Trick training & dolphin shows;
  • Beautifully rendered and realistic environments both above and below the water;
  • Activities: petting, feeding, dolphin care, mini-games;
  • Social: share photos and achievements;
  • Customization: multiple types of dolphins, tricks, props and decorations.
 

Dolphin Paradise: Wild Friends will make it debut worldwide later this month. To learn more about this enchanting and educational game, please visit
