German Indie Game PUDDING PANIC HD for iPad is GAME OF THE WEEK on the App Store

Directly on the day of release, PUDDING PANIC was recommended by the App Store as“new and noteworthy” in 75 countries, a great start for this quirky action puzzle game. The ambitious kunst-stoff development team worked nine months on this “stunning piece of art” (Appsafari.com), in which the player leads an anxious blob of pudding through a spooky haunted house.“We put all our love and energy into this game,” says Patrick Rau, CEO and creative director of kunst-stoff GmbH.“Our ambition was to create a challenging and fun gaming experience for players of any level!”

The gameplay: The player has to puzzle his or her way to the ghost ride’s exit and evade scary monsters waiting in the dark. The only chance of survival is to scare the monsters back before the pudding quivers, shivers and faints from fear: The player fights evil witches, scary skeletons and rusty knights with an arsenal of weapons and traps, such as the fearsome Rat Racer, the Viper Punch or the Kitty Bomb, a kitten which is no longer so cute when it explodes…

Players test their courage in 48 suspenseful levels of the ghost ride and dive into four “beautiful 3D worlds” (appgefahren.de): the Black Forest, the Purple Mines, the Sleepy Graves and the Dark Castle.  Variations in game play -- including puzzle-solving, playing against the clock, unraveling labyrinths and winning treacherous races -- promise to keep the game fresh and inspiring throughout the whole ride.

The developers are currently working on a Racing Edition as well as on versions for PC/Mac and Facebook.

The PUDDING PANIC App is available for 0,79€ / 0,99$ from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch and for 2,39€ / 2,99$ on iPad (link see next page).
