HARDERWIJK, The Netherlands, February 9th 2009
Two Tribes, a Dutch game developer, today announces the upcoming release of Toki Tori for Apple iPhone/iPod Touch. The game is due to arrive in the first quarter of 2009.
Based on the well-received Wii game by the same name, the Apple iPhone/iPod Touch game will allow gamers on the go to play Toki Tori wherever they want.
“We are happy to announce that we are able to bring the full Toki Tori experience to iPhone gamers.”, says Martijn Reuvers, Managing Director at Two Tribes.“A lot of games get dumbed down before being released on the iPhone, but we believe in full quality games and offer exactly this with Toki Tori.”
The gameplay in Toki Tori is a blend of two genres. While it looks like a platform game, it's a puzzle game by heart. Players will have to look and plan ahead carefully while using a variety of items, such as the Telewarp, Freeze-o-Matic and InstantRockTM to name but a few. For iPhone/iPod Touch, the game has been adapted to take advantage of the unique interface offered by the devices.
“The controls have been redesigned to make full use of the multi-touch screen and tilt sensor.”, says Collin van Ginkel, Creative director Director at Two Tribes.“We have thrown the original directional controls out the door and developed a new control scheme which works great on iPhone/iPod Touch.”
Toki Tori will be made available through Apple’s App Store. No specific release date has been announced, but the game will become available during the first quarter of 2009.
