Seattle, WA – December 8, 2011 - Zipline Games, a Seattle-based games studio and the creator of the Moai game development platform < http://www.getmoai.com> , today announced worldwide availability of their first game – Wolf Toss ( http://ziplinegames.com/games/wolf-toss/) – available now for iPhone, iPad, Android devices, and on Chrome. This is the first time a game has been launched simultaneously across all three platforms, which was made possible by Zipline Games’ multi-device open source game development platform, Moai.
In the free-to-play Wolf Toss game , players shoot the Big Bad Wolf from cannons on his carnivorous quest to get ham and bacon by demolishing the Three Little Pigs-engineered huts, houses and mansions. Wolf Toss combines the addicting gameplay of popular knock-em-down game and the deeper experience of an old-school D-pad platformer’s power ups, collectibles and cheats. The game features moving obstacles, 144 playable levels, large indoor areas, 3 distinct worlds to explore and over 15 different power ups and cheats. Use strategy and power-ups to burn, roll, float, blast and even teleport past rubber walls, moving platforms and spinning propellers to delicious victory. To give players a little boost, the game offers in-app purchase of Cheats found on a carnival-type roulette wheel that give the Big Bad Wolf supreme advantage over his porky nemeses.
“ Wolf Toss a lot of fun! Its release is exciting for us at Zipline Games in two ways – it is our first game that is launching simultaneously on half a billion devices over iOS, Android and Chrome, and was built entirely on Zipline Games’ multi-device open source game development platform, Moai,” said Todd Hooper, CEO of Zipline Games.
Wolf Toss was able to release on all three platforms simultaneously as it was all written in Lua script, which is the language used in Zipline Games’ Moai game development platform. Billed as the mobile platform for pro game developers, the Moai platform differentiates itself through its cloud-based game services and rapid simultaneous development of iOS, Android, and Native Client titles.
