App description: Feel the love for Prairie Chute:

-> Featured under "What's Hot" on the App Store - Sept. '09

"It is hard to describe the comedic value of this game so we recommend trying it out for yourself."
-- Tim Rattray (Slide to Play : iPhone game review site)

"Prairie Chute is a great example of a casual game done well. A must purchase!!!"
-- Seyoon (customer)

"Tilt controls are spot-on here, and dealing with the various kinds of obstacles requires timing and strategy."
-- andre_81 (customer)

"... I haven't had such a hassle getting my phone back since the release of Bejewelled!"
-- Rich_952000 (customer)

Throughout history mankind has faced many nearly impossible challenges. These monumental struggles between what is possible and the perseverance of the human spirit have shaped the very fabric of our existence

This will undoubtedly be one of those challenges. For less than a cup of coffee you can help the P. Diggity Dog family safely deliver all their cousins to the 99th annual Ragin' Rat Reunion.

Navigate your prairie dogs to the hole with the light on by tilting your iPod or iPhone left or right. Each time you successfully land a dog the environment changes to present a new challenge. While the first few levels will simply have you navigating around buzzards and avoiding land mines, the challenge will quickly increase with patrolling coyotes, electric fences and more!

How many dogs can you safely deliver home before another one bites the dust?

FEATURES:

-> Easy to pick up and learn. No long term objectives or commitments. If you have 5 minutes, git-er-done!

-> Unlimited levels of play, you keep stayin' alive and we keep the baddies coming!

-> Requires some strategy and thinking ahead to make sure you have a clear path to the hole.

-> Funny characters, sounds and voices. Custom animations for parachuting, electrocuting, exploding, etc.

-> Three types of scoring including how many dogs you landed, how long it took you and what was your longest drop in a hole. Compare your scores with your neighbor or the world with OpenFeint leaderboards.

-> Easy, Medium & Hard difficulty settings to suit both the noob and expert alike.


TIPS:

-> Tap your prairie dog if you have a clear line of sight with the hole. This will drop his chute and plummet you towards the target. This stops the clock and improves your Air Time score.

-> Tap the birds and the coyote to change their movement. Birds go the opposite direction when tapped, coyotes stop for a second and howl.

-> Use the cactus if you miss a hole on a cliff or get in a bind. Beware though, buzzard like nothing more than a rebound snack.

We hope you enjoy playing Prairie Chute as much as we did making it. Please give us any feedback you have for future versions and improvements.
