BERLIN -- December 8th, 2011.
The Berlin indie game developer kunst-stoff was honoured with the “German Game Developer Award 2011” in two categories. kunst-stoff’s casual game “The Great Jitters: Pudding Panic” received the award as “Best Mobile Game”.
The “German Developer Award” honours outstanding computer games and their developers. Winners of the prestigious award are selected both by a jury of experts and by the audience. “The Great Jitters: Pudding Panic” succeeded because of its innovative gameplay, its creative design and its outstanding quality.
“The Great Jitters: Pudding Panic” is an action-puzzle game for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, as well as for Mac and PC. Players test their courage in 48 suspenseful levels and rescue the anxious pudding named J. Jitters out of a creepy haunted house.
The player’s task is it to unravel tricky labyrinths and to guide the pudding to the exit. But scary monsters are waiting in the dark!
The only chance of survival is to scare the monsters back before the pudding quivers, shivers and faints from fear. Users fight evil witches, rattling skeletons and rusty knights with an arsenal of madcap weapons. Variations in gameplay -- including puzzle-solving, playing against the clock, unravelling labyrinths and winning treacherous races -- promise to keep the game fresh and inspiring throughout the whole ride and for players of any level.
Because of its refreshing concept, “The Great Jitters: Pudding Panic” already received already the “Red Dot Design Award 2011” and was nominated as “Best Euro Indie Game” for the Dutch Game Awards. Reviewers described the game as “a very original game with fantastic graphics and an adorable main character“ (iPAd App Café) and as a „puzzler without comparison on iPhone“ ( pocketgamer.co.uk). 148Apps reviewed „super fun to play“, and Appsafari.com called the game „a stunning piece of art ... with a unique gameplay“.
