FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
LOS ANGELES – (September 28, 2011) – RGH Games, a division of RGH Entertainment, has released its first game for iOS, Dragon Eggs ; it was announced by David Corbett, Executive Director - North America & Europe, RGH Entertainment.
Created, developed and produced under the leadership of award-winning gaming industry veteran John Zuur Platten, Director of Digital Media, Dragon Eggs is an easy to learn and highly addictive physics puzzle game that is great fun for players of all ages. The game is priced at $.99 on the App Store™
“We are excited to be entering the casual gaming arena with a game based on a new character franchise designed to appeal to a global audience. Dragon Eggs is an entertaining, young-at-heart concept which can be easily adapted to the entire spectrum of transmedia platforms and features likable characters that will support a wide variety of licensing and merchandising opportunities,” said Corbett.
In the whimsical world of Dragon Eggs, it’s time for the dragons to move their delicate eggs to a safer nest. Players take control of a dragon in flight with an egg on its back, twisting and turning while carefully balancing the precious cargo as they fly in a race against time through challenging courses in richly rendered 3D dragon environments filled with fun and adventure.
“Our goal in creating Dragon Eggs was to have a fun, addictive and engaging puzzle game that would take advantage of the iPad and iPhone as entertainment platforms. In addition to being a great app, it is also an excellent launch title for RGH because it shows not only our commitment to quality and production values, but also to the gamers we intend to reach,” said Platten.
About Dragon Eggs
In the game, you play as Orella, a mother dragon faced with a big challenge: your baby dragon, Oswyn, is just about to hatch and you need to get him to the safety of a new nest.
Flying through a series of twisting and turning caverns, you must keep Oswyn's egg balanced on your back as you navigate to your new home past a variety of challenges, including exploding plant pods, waterfalls, lava, water geysers and splintering ice shards.
Forty-five puzzles across three unique, richly-detailed worlds keep every moment exciting and engaging. Easy to learn controls mean you'll instantly be airborne and flying - however, you'll be rated on how fast you can make it to your destination. Along the way, you can collect gems which will allow Orella to spit fire and negate some of the obstacles you'll face on your journey.
Finish all the puzzles and you'll unlock a special playable character which will allow you to complete the levels even faster. And there's Game Center support for your achievements.
