London, UK (PRWEB) April 23, 2010
Cartoon Network launches their first ever gaming apps for the iPhone featuring the Super-Charged, Super-Cool Powerpuff Girls. The Powerpuff Girls Snowboarding & Powerpuff Girls PowAPuff! games launch from this week.
The Powerpuff Girls Snowboarding game sees the city of Townsville covered in snow. Players can grab a board and hit the slopes, choosing to play as Bubbles, Blossom or Buttercup in the first annual Townsville Snowboarding Championship. Racing on 20 fast-paced and fun-packed slopes, using the touch screen to jump, duck and blast past obstacles, players can also tilt the iPhone to speed up and slow down, battling evil villains like Mojo Jojo and Fuzzy Lumpkins to earn medals and score challenges along the way.
In the second app, Powerpuff Girls PowAPuff! the Gangreen Gang are taking over Townsville and need to be whacked. In this fast, fun and frantic game, the green skinned teenage hoodlums are popping up everywhere - but a short, sharp, smack on the touch screen will sort them out. However players must take care, Bubbles, Blossom and Buttercup are also bouncing across the area, along with plenty of other favourite characters. Accidentally hitting one of the girls soon leads to game over. There are three areas in Townsville to play and players can compare their score with others across the world.
The Powerpuff Girls (http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=360136807&mt=8) Snowboarding app and Powerpuff Girls PowAPuff! app (http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=366945173&mt=8 ) are both priced at a level which should be accessible to a young audience. Both apps work on iPhones and second generation iPod touch in English, French, Italian, German or Spanish.
Laurel Chamberlain, Director of Digital Engagement, commented: "Working to bring much loved, classic animated characters into the 21st century with an iPhone game made perfect sense. The Powerpuff Girls continue to be a vibrant and highly fashionable brand that blend perfectly with the modern and dynamic features of the iPhone. We're also pleased to have created the app in Italian and Spanish (as well as German and French) where the Powerpuff Girls have a dedicated and lively following. This new game makes an exciting addition to our app portfolio."
Both apps will be distributed through the app store and more information is available on the Cartoon Network mobile page (http://www.cartoonnetwork.co.uk/mobile )
