The German independent software developer and publisher FDG Entertainment has good reason to celebrate! The world famous puzzle adventure series“Bobby Carrot 1‐5”, which up to now has only been available on mobile phones, has already sold over a million units.
The eponymous main game character, the cute hare“Bobby Carrot”, has to collect all of the carrots in a level in order to reach the exit. There are plenty of other puzzles which block the way too. The simple game principle is quickly learned, but it’s not long before it gets challenging for even the most hard‐core puzzle game freak.
Within a quite short period, the game series has picked up numerous awards and BC Part 4 snapped up the“Best German Mobile Game” at the 2006‚“German Developer Awards” held in Essen. When it seemed that the end of the game series was being announced with“Bobby Carrot 5: Forever”, thousands of fans complained. However, the title“Forever” was not being used symbolically.
From its release, 30 new downloadable levels have appeared every month, available via the ingame download option, these are also available to purchase as“Level Up!” standalone extra level packs. This also lets fans collect the rare“golden carrots” and they can then trade these on the www.bobbyforever.com website in Download Gimmicks for items such as a Bobby Carrot PC game, artwork, original soundtracks and plenty more.
The collected golden carrots are converted into“Magic Codes” in the mobile game and these can then be uniquely entered by users on the website. To date over 1 million golden carrots have been traded in Download Gimmicks, making Bobby Carrot a Golden Carrot‘Millionhare’! A special iPhone version of Bobby Carrot 5: Forever is in development and will offer improved graphics and animations, a re‐worked soundtrack and the usual fantastic level design and superb settings. At the end of the game there is a very special surprise.
iPhone and iPod Touch owners can look forward to a beautifully presented puzzle adventure.
Release date is 1st November 2008
