London, UK - May 3, 2011 - Leading independent games developer Big Pixel Studios today announced that their hit iOS title, Land-a Panda, will receive its first major update (version 1.1), featuring twenty brand new levels based in the tropical setting of Panda Island.

The new Land-a Panda version 1.1 update adds a variety of new obstacles, cannons, enemies, and pickups to the already feature packed puzzler. Ranging from parachute pickups which allow Yang Guang to drift slowly towards his sweetheart Tian Tian, to the bully Lo-Pan Guang Pandas intent on stopping Yang Guang from reaching his goal!

“The response we’ve received from users of Land-a Panda since its launch in early March has been astounding,” explains Paul Virapen, Big Pixel Studios Managing Director.“We’d like to thank our fans for their continued support with this free update, and hope they enjoy the new features and levels.”
