BIG PIXEL STUDIOS RELEASE LATEST iOS GAME: MEOW MEOW HAPPY FIGHT

For immediate release: August 5, 2010

London, UK - Indie games developer Big Pixel Studios today launched their new Japanese style dual-stick shooter title, Meow Meow Happy Fight. Set in modern-day Tokyo, a giant Happy Cat has travelled back in time from the year 2336 AD, where everything is just too happy, to bring happiness and destruction to the city’s inhabitants!

With a massive 24 action-packed levels, 15 characters to unlock, 12 super power-ups and, of course, 1 giant Happy Cat, this game really takes the dual-stick shooter to the next level. The slick character design, breathtaking backgrounds, and catchy Japanese music give an extra dimension to the game play.

“With Meow Meow Happy Fight we’ve created a game based around a simple mechanic, which gradually expands into something much more in-depth and skill demanding,” said Paul Virapen, Big Pixel Studios Managing Director. David Burpitt, Technical Director at Big Pixel Studios, added,“We put a big focus on the AI of opponents. They move, think and act as if they were controlled by real players, and can often out-smart you with a special attack, or cheekily snatch a kill after you've put in all the hard work.”

Connecting to OpenFeint’s 29+ million gamers adds another layer of depth to Meow Meow Happy Fight. With a multitude of achievements to unlock, leaderboards, and social features, it will keep even the most avid of gamers coming back for more.

"We've been passing our build of Meow Meow Happy Fight around the office and our guys can't get enough. It's a great game and is a fantastic addition to their great Piyo Blocks series," said Eros Resmini, VP of Marketing and Developer Relations at Aurora Feint.

Meow Meow Happy Fight launches today in the App Store at the special introductory price of $0.99 (£0.59/€0.79) for a limited time, with the price going back up to $2.99 (£1.79/€2.39) shortly afterwards.

To celebrate the launch Big Pixel Studios are running promotions on their other iOS games, with a 33% sale on the recently released Piyo Blocks 2, and they are giving Piyo Blocks away completely FREE! So no matter how much you’ve got to spend today, you can enjoy some Big Pixel entertainment.
