Thanks for posting this, ImNoSuperMan! So yeah, our first iPhone game is out, and we're pretty stoked.

We'd like to draw your attention to the following special item. As Tim said in the 'upcoming games' thread, it's an off-the-wall music vid we made about the animals in Zoo Lasso. Hope you enjoy it!

EDIT: Whoops, having trouble embedding, here's a link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8gg73v5iWyY

My one complaint is that it is difficult to draw loops around creatures at the upper right corner...it is very easy to stray too far and activate the pause button instead.

In the Open Feint integration, I would love it if the ranks we earn while sorting animals were listed as achievements/trophies in OF and showed what we did to earn them.

Stats like total number of animals sorted and for each species, largest number of animals lassoed, and largest combo would also be cool to see on stat leaderboards.

Cheers for all the props in the other thread guys. Hopefully people like this one.

And let us know what you think of that music video! It was a very random idea to act on...
