We love sloths and we love games, so this seemed like a natural fit,” says Paul Sutton, co-founder of FPO Projects.

FPO Projects, the app developer that brought the world Catculator, unveils its first game,Star Sloth—featured in iTunes App Store’s “New and Noteworthy” section.

The mobile game for iOS devices, including the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad (and optimized for the new iPad Retina display), uses touch-screen swipe technology to addictive effect.

In the world of the game, the main character, Sloth, has a hard time staying awake. Players help him keep his job, swiping the screen to deliver cheeseburgers to hungry customers throughout the cosmos. All the while, Sloth eludes obstacles like mine fields and space vortexes. The boss’s daughter, an obsessive sloth enthusiast, chases Sloth through the cosmos, while a galactic burger thief is determined to get Sloth fired.

“We love sloths and we love games, so this seemed like a natural fit,” says Paul Sutton, FPO Projects’ producer, who co-founded the company with fellow former Crispin Porter + Bogusky staffers Conor McCann, Luis Santi, Jr. and Jake Mikosh. “We like to find things that haven’t been done before, injecting them with a unique sensibility.”

Players can use tips they earn from deliveries to unlock delivery permits for new galaxies, as well as buy fun accessories for Sloth and his rocket. The game randomly generates delivery routes across the universe, which makes for endless gameplay.

Built in Adobe AIR, Star Sloth will be available for Android, NOOK and Kindle in the coming months.

Star Sloth follows on the heels of FPO’s successful 2011 Catculator. A staff pick in Apple’s App Store, Catculator is a loveable alternative to boring calculator applications. Visit the site: http://thecatculator.com/
