We wanted a game both entertaining and educational, while remaining realistic and intuitive.
New York, NY / Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 04, 2012
App Developer, Rock Out Apps is proud to announce the launch of its first mobile game: Slippery Seal, an app available now for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
This real life game follows “Slippery” the Harbor Seal on his journey swimming up the Northern Pacific coast, from San Francisco to Alaska. Along the way, “Slippery” dodges sharks, dines on clams and cautiously interacts with other denizens of the sea, maintaining key elements of marine wildlife as realistic as possible. The game is loyal to the Seal’s movements, environment and habitat. Each level of the game transports the player to landmark locations located on the Northern Pacific coast.
“We wanted a game both entertaining and educational, while remaining realistic and intuitive,” said Kevin Lynch, CEO of Rock Out Apps. “There are thousands of games in the AppStore, but none have real life creatures showcased in their ecosystems. We wanted “Slippery” and his companions to look and feel real, which is why we turned to an artist who studied oceanography to depict real characters in a fun way.”
Rock Out Apps partnered with Moyo, a California-based mobile game developer with whom the vision to create the immersive universe of Slippery Seal was created and shared. "Rock Out Apps has been a great partner in this venture and together we have developed an amazing game about something very dear to all of us,” said Rasmus Hansson, Moyo's CEO. “It combines a story with mechanics that appeal to virtually anyone. Slippery Seal is a game that can be pickup and enjoyed without any time commitment. We consider it a true success," added Hansson.
Along his journey, “Slippery” meets with fellow game stars: “Marty” the Blowfish, “JellyFace” the Sea Nettle, “Ocho” the giant pacific octopus and most notably “Boomer” the great white shark. The game launches with 10 aquatic levels with more levels and sceneries to be added to it in future updates.
As the name says you’re playing a seal, who has to collect yummy clams to advance to a new level. You have a time limit in which you are required to reach a minimum limit of points. You earn points by eating clams or by fending off from creatures that want to harm you (sharks, Orcas, swordfish and various other sea creatures). Controls are extremely easy, as with any arcade game: Tap the screen to spit pearls or draw with your finger without lifting it to guide your slippery seal in the water. Users can also compete for the highest score using Facebook and Apple’s Game Center to promote their score.
Slippery Seal is available at the iTunes App Store for the price of $1.99 and it’s compatible to iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices.
