My Army ready for war on iPhone this January 2012

Sheffield, UK - 17th January 2012: Are your Facebook friends prepared for battle? My Army, the first title from new social games label Bad Puppet, is getting ready to invade the iPhone and iPod touch later this month for just $0.99/€0.79/£0.69.

My Army is a unique, fun and action-packed war game where you choose and lead your very own squad of three Facebook friends onto the battlefield to liberate 45 countries. Once you join the action, you have to use tilt, tap and swipe controls on the iPhone and iPod touch to help your plucky soldiers avoid mines and hazards, dodge missiles and rescue prisoners.

After each battle, you can share each of your squad’s war stories on Facebook - and the more you play, the higher Ranks and Army Points you’ll earn, allowing you to unlock better weaponry and equipment, and free more occupied territories.

My Army for iPhone/iPod touch features:

· A fun, retro cartoon-style game with Retina Display-quality graphics

· Fluid tilt, tap and swipe controls built for the iPhone and iPod touch

· Unique Facebook friend recruitment feature to build your own army and post their war

  stories on your wall

· Hazards such as mines, missiles, bombs and many other booby-traps planted by the enemy

· Unlockable vehicles and uniforms to give you extra protection

· POWs to rescue who will then join your platoon to fight for freedom

· Army Points available to earn and liberate 45 countries that have been occupied by the

  enemy

· Ranking system that awards Officer ranks for leaders and Soldier ranks for Facebook squad

  members

· Game Center achievements  and online leaderboards

My Army is developed and published by Bad Puppet, a new quirky casual label from Distinctive Games (Rugby Nations 2012, Football Kicks) that is bringing playful, unique and innovative socially-connected games to a variety of platforms throughout 2012 and beyond.
