Exciting New iPhone Game Turns The Snow Yellow

Cheshire, UK– 11th December 2009 - The festive flash favourite Ho Ho Ho Yellow Snow has been re-imagined as an iPhone app! The original version of Ho Ho Ho Yellow Snow was unleashed on the world in December 2007, topped the viral charts and won the DADI award for Best In-House Website or Campaign. Since then it’s racked up millions and millions of plays as people all over the world turn the snow yellow.

Developed in association with Netlog, Europe's largest online community, Ho Ho Ho Yellow Snow Deluxe takes all the quirky fun of the web original and adds stunning new graphics, more in-depth gameplay with tons of new levels and new styles of play, like the gripping 'Survivor' mode and the tranquil 'Zen' mode.

Players must use Santa’s overly full bladder to join the dots and reveal an assortment of seasonal images, as well as fending off the occasional horde of zombie snowmen. They’ll need to be a whiz with the, well, whiz, if they want to make it all the way through to the end. With intuitive controls that make great use of the iPhone’s touch screen and accelerometer, anyone can pick up Ho Ho Ho Yellow Snow and enjoy the most twisted take on Christmas you’re likely to see on the iPhone.
