Safari Party Brings a New Twist to the Classic Matching puzzle game Genres

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

August 8 th, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - Pixowl Inc. is pleased to announce the release and immediate worldwide availability of the universal  application for iOS Safari Party, a family-friendly, fast-paced arcade puzzle game that brings a new twist to the classic matching gameplay apps. This adrenaline packed puzzler is not only a perfect title for adults and kids alike, but is also suitable for advanced puzzle gamers.

The simplest things are usually the ones that bring the most joy. And Safari Party proves it by giving players an opportunity to compete for the title of the best world photographer by picturing groups of savage animals. The app combines arcade and puzzle elements with a Bejeweled-style playfield featuring an unusual method of playing puzzle games, allowing users to gain total control over the game play using multiple strategies. Gamers can tap on an available group of animals of the same kind or create larger groups to score more points. The game becomes a mental and speed challenge as users move forward through the levels and progress by unlocking new mind intriguing modes.

Safari Party comes with Retina Display support, five hand drawn themes with thirty five adorable characters and various power-ups that bring additional dynamism to the game. Carefully detailed art made by famous French cartoonist Laurel makes this game truly unique. In addition, the app has OpenFeint and Game Center integration with leaderboards and achievements. The game is simple, fun and addictive for kids and parents to pick it up easily and enjoy, but it is also challenging enough for puzzle enthusiasts to play. It will definitely provide hours of fun, laughter and joy for players of all types.

"While creating Safari Party, we strived to go beyond ordinary match-3 puzzle games and give the player full controls of his moves. We put a lot of effort to design Safari Party and make it appealing for casual gamers, kids & family and yet challenging enough for senior puzzle gamers." said Sébastien BORGET, co-founder at Pixowl Inc.

"I'm excited to see another quality title from Pixowl join the OpenFeint community," said Eros Resmini SVP Marketing of OpenFeint, "These guys consistently deliver innovative twists on gameplay and fantastic uses of our social features in their games."
