Kiwi and Pear's Balloon Adventure by Zephyr Games

We're excited to announce that our upcoming game, Kiwi and Pear's Balloon Adventure, is starting to really look great and will be coming out for the iPhone/iPod/iPad (universal sizing) this August. Intended for ages 6 and up, Kiwi and Pear's Balloon Adventure is a vertically scrolling joy ride through the clouds that allows you and your child to control Kiwi and Pear's Balloon as it plies through the air. The user controls the side to side movement of Kiwi and Pear by tilting their device side to side, and accelerate smoothly to a max speed while slowing down or being stunned when they colide with obstacles. Scattered about are point giving objects, as well as hearts to repair their balloon and smiling stars to boost quickly up into the air! Travel up through into the cloud kingdom, visit the stratosphere, and perhaps evening enjoy a jaunt through space! With global leaderboards, fun and easy to understand and accomplish achievements, both you and your child will enjoy this game!

Kiwi and Pear are two adventurous monkeys who travel and explore the world while spreading love, friendship and smiles to everyone and everything they meet. No adventure is too great for these intrepid little monkeys. They have climbed the Great Wall, hiked the Andes, sailed the Nile they have even been to outer space! Kiwi is curious, fun-loving and silly while Pear is good-natured, sensible and mellow. These affectionate monkeys are happiest when together and are often wrapped in a seemingly endless hug. They do everything together and are rarely apart.

Below is a link to WanArt's website, Joyce Wan was the creator of this fabulous monkey duo, and further down are screenshots of the game in action. We'd also love to hear any early feedback to the screenshots, and will be editing this post to provide a like to the game's video teaser as soon as it is available! If you are from a publication or do blog reviews and would be interested in potentially previewing or reviewing Kiwi and Pear's newest adventure, shoot me a private message here over Touch Arcade.

The Kiwi and Pear brand were created by WanArt's fantastic Joyce Wan, and more information about them can be found at the following link as well as on Facebook where we will be posting wallpapers and other neat new items as they are created in the runup to the launch:

Slight Delay

Just a micro-update, but due to Zephyr Games being located in the NYC area and Irene blowing through this last week, we had a slight 1 week delay. Kiwi and Pear's Balloon Adventure has been submitted though and we are looking forward to it being live in iTunes next week, most likely Tuesday or Wednesday!
