To-Fu: 2 Apple ‘Runner Up’ Game of the Year 2011

Brilliant action puzzler sequel To-Fu: 2 was yesterday named Apple ‘Runner Up’ Game of the Year 2001, UK developer HotGen has revealed.

The milestone comes just three months since this loveable sequel burst onto the App Store, where it was featured as ‘Game of the Week’ in 141 app stores worldwide. 

To celebrate this achievement HotGen has decided to release the original game completely free to play on iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, the game continues to find new fans, propelling it to the top of several regional App Store charts.  

Fans of the original - have no fear - the same unique gameplay and intuitive control system has been carried over but now with the addition of several incredible new features.

In 'To-Fu 2', players are able to launch To-Fu faster than ever before with the use of his special new Super Ping which can be charged up and released. Use this awe-inspiring new move to break obstacles and speed through difficult areas in a blur. Alongside this, there are new obstacle types including the addition of 45 degree corners - meaning that To-Fu can now rebound around corners - as well as may others.

This free version comes with adverts which can be removed with any In-App-Purchase, and any previous In-App-Purchase will remove the adverts as well once these have been restored.

At the time of writing, since launch, To-Fu 2 has:

  • Apple ‘Runner Up’ Game of the Year 2011
  • Game of the Week in 141 app stores World Wide
  • Earned 82 per cent Metacritic

Available on iPad, iPhone and iPod,  To-Fu: 2 is an iOS game like no other, featuring a one-of-a-kind touch-screen mechanic that enables you to stretch and ‘ping’ the courageous  To-Fu through each of the 120 levels.

The game's control system couldn't be more intuitive - negating the need for on-screen buttons - simply requiring the player to grab To-Fu with their finger, dragging him to stretch and releasing to ping. The adhesive To-Fu will stick to almost any surface.

The game is available now, for free from iTunes
