App description: Ever wondered how much fun a banjo obsessed vegetarian piranha would be? No, well not surprising really, but the answer is loads!

Banjo Piranha is an addictive physics arcade game that puts the player in control of Banjo, the vegetarian piranha with a fondness for, well, banjos.

Players swim around fun and progressively more difficult stages - collecting as many banjos as they can, to score as highly as possible. By diving deep and jumping into the air, players can attempt to skilfully land on a desired banjo, or simply crash into things an knock them into the water for later collection.

While on this epic banjo hunt, players also have to keep an eye out for fruit and vegetables. As Banjo is a vegetarian, collecting these will score more points, and activate progress to the next stage.

But they shouldnt leave it too long before munching on the food! There are other piranhas chasing them, and they will get hungrier and hungrier and faster and faster. Avoiding them is essential, either by slick manoeuvres or distracting them with meat, because if Banjo gets eaten its game over.

Game Features:

Banjos
Addictive, quick fire gameplay
Universal app for iPhone and iPad
Fruit
Gorgeous retina graphics
Controls on left or right
Fab audio and great music
50+ stages of increasing difficulty
Meat
Angry enemy piranhas
Personal bests saved for; score, stages completed, banjos collected, biggest air and longest survival.

hi morgan,

I love your innovating games especially for Touch Football and Monkey Tennis " miss just the retina and a little bit more " but real fun and easily playable. ^^

No and that is the only problem I have with this game. Banjo is a great character, the art and gameplay are extremely polished but I am having a really hard time with the controls on the right side.

Please allow the ability to move the controls to the left.

Ok that seriously stinks. Not even a righty vs leftie issue - it's a gamer habit!

Could this possibly be fixed in an update cuz I don't think I can handle that. I know it seems minor but when you are used to precise movements with one hand it is hard to change!

This is on this list for the first update, amongst other things. However, considering the number of people mentioning it, I'm going to do it first as a minor update. Sorry it wasnt there to start with!

Maybe you should write this in the description, so you don't get more 1-star reviews because of that issue.

>
It should be a standard feature that you can turn on/off in-game music and sound effects separately in all games
