Animal Ark - Africa [Submitted to Apple + gameplay trailer OUT]

Hello guys,

Our game Animal Ark - Africa is coming to the final stage, just a few optimizations left to do and the game will be submited to Apple.

What is Animal Ark - Africa about?

Animal Ark - Afrika is a casual logical game developed primarily for iPhone / iPod Touch. The game features African animals you have to combine in individual columns into groups according to their type. In addition, sometimes after the combination of question marks a quiz question appears, that can win you a large number of points, if you answer it correctly.

Game locations are set in different natural environments of Africa. The game will take you to the mountains, rain forests, deserts, savannas, etc.., allowing you to meet the animals that live in these environments. The goal is to acquire the highest score and get to the highest level. You can then register your results into the top 50 table, where you can compare yourself with players from all around the world. The game has a high audio-visual level, thanks to its great animation of animals, environments, but also sound and music.

In addition to the game itself, you can read through an encyclopedia, where you can find information on all animals in the game, on the environments and on the African continent. This encyclopedia features beautiful hand-drawn pictures of animals and environments.

A virtual safari and great fun await you in the Animal Ark - Africa.

We will release a gameplay video and more information soon, so stay tuned!

Woah! This game definately has an atmosphere!
Afric always was oriental and odd, mainly because of it's history and culture.
I missed some applications with tons of photos from the most special places in the world, with animals inhabiting and information about them.

And here it goes, with addition of puzzle game to spend time in more please way
