Hungry Giraffe to get iPhone release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

BRAINTREE, UK – 10th May, 2012

Laughing Jackal have today announced that their most recent hit PSN Mini, the critically acclaimed Hungry Giraffe, will soon be coming to iPhone as a free-to-play game featuring in-app purchases and several exciting new features.

Not only was Hungry Giraffe commercially successful (with over 100,000 downloads worldwide), but it was also popular with the critics, becoming the first ever Minis title to be awarded a 10/10 by Official PlayStation Magazine UK, who called it: “…as cute as a puppy with an inside-out ear and so addictive that it’s likely to make you miss your stop on the bus and not really care.”

PSPMinis.com felt the same, awarding Hungry Giraffe a 9.5/10 in their glowing review: “... never in my gaming life have I seen a game elevate a genre like how Hungry Giraffe has done

The highly respected Pocketgamer.co.uk agreed, awarding the game an 8/10 in their review, saying: “Simple, short, but immediately engaging, Hungry Giraffe is a game that will devour your time as readily as its protagonist devours tacos.”

Laughing Jackal have also provided some gameplay footage of the Minis version in action:

More on Hungry Giraffe:

A 20 foot tall, 1200kg giraffe needs a ton of food each day just to survive.

But, oh no! All the tastiest leaves have been eaten, while up in the sky endless streams of snacks, fruit and junk food hover just out of reach!

Can you propel our long-necked, half-starved critter on his twisty-turny upward journey?

Hungry Giraffe is the greatest giraffe-feeding game of all time! Dare you miss out?

Established in 2005, Laughing Jackal are the developer of PlayStation minis such as Du æl Invaders, Vibes, Ace Armstrong vs. the Alien Scumbags, Stellar Attack , Cubixx, Orbit, the Fighting Fantasy series of gamebooks and the zombie chain reaction puzzler OMG-Z. Our first PlayStation®3 game, the critically acclaimed Cubixx HD, is out now on the PSN.  We are currently putting the finishing touches to our first iPhone game and are working on an unannounced PlayStation®3 game.
