‘Pretty Pet Pony’ launches on iPhone

HONG KONG – September 23, 2011: Outblaze and Animoca today announced the launch of Pretty Pet Pony for Apple’s iOS devices. The newest title in the chart-topping “Pretty Pet” series breaks new ground by introducing action-packed horse races and pony customization to the classic pet grooming gameplay for all ages. Pretty Pet Pony is available free of charge on the App Store at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pretty-pet-pony/id455206683?ls=1&mt=8.

In Pretty Pet Pony, players take control of a stable to groom colorful horses of nearly excessive cuteness. With ponies marching in every few moments, players will have to think fast in order to brush and wash coats, check horseshoes, and exercise the lovable animals – at the same time making sure that their own horse is healthy and at peak fitness for the next race.

Regular race events give players of Pretty Pet Pony a chance to ride their horse on different racetracks and against different opponents as they compete for a variety of prizes. Racing requires a quick eye and fast reflexes to strike a balance between speed and stamina: focus too much on bursts of speed, and your pony will tire quickly, but gallop too slowly and you’ll end up finishing last in the race.

Players can customize their pony and upgrade their stables by using in-game money as well as Pet Points. Connectivity options allow users to take snapshots of their unique pony designs and post them on the Web, or find friends to compete against.

Pretty Pet Pony is free to download and play. Optional in-game upgrades can be bought with Pet Points, which are purchased with real money. Pet Points can also be earned by using the Daily Bonus Lottery, for which players automatically receive tokens every day. Download Pretty Pet Pony now free of charge from Apple’s App Store at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pretty-pet-pony/id455206683?ls=1&mt=8.
