Monstaaa! available soon

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA, May 15, 2012 – Monstaaa!, a unique take on the tilting based games, is scheduled to launch on May 29, 2012 on iPhone, iPod touch and iPad as a universal app. Developed by independent developer, Pixel Elephant, the game features incredibly simple tilting based controls, beautiful painterly graphics, great level design and a lovable character. Additionally, all future levels will be available for free.

Monstaaa is hungry, always hungry... He's lived his whole life in a cave and the only things he loves are his bugs. Or rather... he loves eating them! Tilt your device to help Monstaaa and feed him some delicious bugs. Sounds easy? Well, it does until you realize his caves are full of wicked wickednesses and truly dangerous dangers!

"xxx. One of our top priorities while developing Monstaaa! was making sure that the tilting controls are really easy and fun and I think we succeeded at that. With its very unique painterly visual style and a charming monster-like main character, Monstaaa! is going to be a very unique game on the App Store." said Maciej Sawitus.
