BIG PIXEL STUDIOS RELEASE NEW iOS GAME: OFF THE LEASH

LONDON, UK - February 2nd 2012 - Leading independent games developer Big Pixel Studios today announced that their latest iOS game, Off The Leash, is now available to download on the App Store for FREE.

There’s a new Chief of Police in town, and he’s put a ban on dogs, ordering them all to be captured! Off The Leash puts you in control of one particular doggy outlaw, Steve the Golden Retriever. Steve is quietly watching TV when he gets his door smashed down by the cops who are ready to lock him up. He jumps out of the window and sets off running through the park, at which point you must tilt your device to control him, avoiding obstacles, rescuing other dogs, and ultimately evading police pursuit!

With simple pick-up-and-play controls, stunning HD graphics, and a multitude of missions, achievements, power-ups, and unlockable content, Off The Leash has something for all levels of gamers.

“We designed Off The Leash specifically for play on mobile devices,” said Paul Virapen, Big Pixel Studios Managing Director. “With simple one-handed tilt-based controls, and short play sessions of between 30 seconds and a few minutes, players can come back to try and beat their own or their friends’ high scores whenever they have a spare moment.”

Off The Leash is currently available to download for FREE for iPhone and iPod touch from the App Store at: http://itunes.apple.com/app/id480125356
