Tasty Planet on iPhone: Eat Everything in the World

For Immediate Release

February 1, 2011 - (Vancouver, Canada) Dingo Games announced today the release of Tasty Planet for the iPhone and iPod Touch. In Tasty Planet players control a tiny ball of grey goo which eats everything smaller than itself. The more it eats, the bigger it gets. As players make their way through the game's 60 levels, the goo grows from a bacteria eating microbe to a planet gobbling monster.

Comic strips throughout the game tell the story of two scientists trying to create the world's greatest bathroom cleaner. Using nanotechnology they design a ball of grey goo to eat all the dirt and bacteria in a bathroom automatically. Unfortunately, a slight miscalculation causes their ball of goo to eat more than just bathroom dirt; it starts eating everything. Now there is no stopping this out-of-control bathroom cleaner.

Tasty Planet was originally released for Mac and Windows. The new iPhone version of the game features a brand new user interface, title screen, comics, and four different control methods (defaulting to tilt).

Tasty Planet is available on the App Store here: http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=415069562&mt=8
