Penguin vs. Yeti Gold Edition/iOS - Snowboard Platformer and Racing Game

Frankenthal, Germany - March 13 th, 2013 - Jochen Kaercher Gamedesign today is pleased to introduce Penguin versus Yeti Gold Edition 1.0, an iOS version of its award-winning Windows game, where players control a snowboard-riding Penguin. The inventive sidescroller challenges players to avoid or knock out the Yetis, a.k.a. the Abominable Snowman, and defeat them by raiding their caves and capturing their food supply of frozen fish. While negotiating obstacles and slipping through traps, players are simultaneously racing Zoltan, the vulture, to reach the end of the level. With intuitive gameplay, 2 button controls, 30 racetrack stages, and three difficulty levels, the fast-paced game is filled with surprises.

Feature Highlights:

  • Exciting combination of snowboard racing and platforming
  • Various ways to complete a stage add to long-term motivation
  • Yetis attack the penguin with giant snowballs and snowmobiles
  • Game automatically adjusts the race for maximum competition
  • Colorful ending screens and trophies to win
  • Force the invading Yetis to leave the penguin's Arctic homeland by cutting off their food supply

Penguin versus Yeti stands out from other racing platformers for several reasons. First, players will master the game by skillfully adjusting their acceleration and jump strength. Second, stages often have more than one path to follow, and players who are ahead in the race may choose the more challenging route to score maximum points. Third, the game automatically adjusts the racing component of the game, slowing the vulture's flight to give players who have made mistakes a fighting chance to be first to reach the end of the stage.

"Zoltan, the vulture, guards the yeti's territory. You need to reach the end of each area, before Zoltan reaches the Dark Yeti," stated Jochen Kaercher. "Most of the time, he slumbers on his throne. But if Zoltan awakens him, he blocks your way and you'll be caught. Penguin vs. Yeti offers three difficulty stages. On each level you are rewarded with a unique ending screen and a trophy once you complete the game."

Device Requirements:

  • iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
  • Requires iOS 5.0 or later
  • Universal app optimized for display on all iOS devices
  • 14.3 MB
