DRAWIN’ GROWIN’ Released for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                 

LONDON ( August 18, 2011 ) – TAITO Corporation (TAITO®), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Square Enix Holdings Co., Ltd., today announced the worldwide release of DRAWIN’ GROWIN’™ for iPhone®, iPod touch®, and iPad®.

Available for download from the App Store™, this casual action game involves a quest to return fantastic flowers and plants to an island kingdom left barren by neglect. With charming storybook-style graphics and intuitive sketch-style controls, DRAWIN’ GROWIN’ is certain to appeal to all ages.

Turn a Barren Island into a Floral Paradise!

In DRAWIN’ GROWIN’, players draw lines on screen, leading nutrient-filled Aqua and Sun Drops to their waiting plants. Each of the fanciful plants presented in the game have different needs: some require plenty of sunlight, others are particularly thirsty, and a few unusual varieties prefer to make bugs their main diet! Strategic line placement as well as consideration to the specific nutrients required by a given plant will both prove key in bringing lush, healthy greenery back to the island.

Furthermore, as the game progresses, lightning strikes, harmful pests, and a variety of other plant-withering threats begin to appear, adding new challenges and thrills. Players will face a total of 60 fun-filled stages over the course of their quest to restore plant life to the kingdom.

A Host of Items

DRAWIN’ GROWIN’ features a wide variety of useful items that will prove indispensable in progressing through the game. There are items that increase the number of lines the player can draw, others protect plants from lightning strikes and other disasters, and some are even capable of restoring wilted plants. Clever use of these tools can make even the most demanding challenges more manageable, adding a further fun and strategic element to the game.

TAITO will continue to release high-quality games that take full advantage of the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch’s individual characteristics.
