Animal Ark Africa HD - Submitted to Apple!

Hello guys,

Animal Ark - Africa will get the iPad version very soon! We submitted HD version to Apple a few days ago and it should be released on June 22nd - exactly 4 months after the release of the original Africa for iPhone/iPod Touch.

What is Animal Ark - Africa?
It is a casual logical game that 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.

Animal Ark - Africa also offers ingame encyclopedia so those quiz questions will be piece of a cake if you take a look into the encyclopedia

We had many positive reviews, here are some quotes:

"The premise is basically that you must match 3 of a kind to get tiles to disappear. However, the game throws a number of twists at you. The game is divided into two columns on either side of the screen and each of those is divided into 3 subsections. In each level you are shown required matches and you must make that many matches and they must take place in the vertical subsection and side indicated. Also, you have a timer so you must make these correct matches within the given time limit.

...so you might have to make 2 gorilla matches on the left side of the mid-level or 1 parrot, 1 chimp, and 1 lizard on the bottom right before the level will end.

The whole game has a beautifully done theme with nice artwork and backgrounds for each level. There is jungle, desert, and savannah along with their requisite animals."

"Easy to play, great graphics and detailed encyclopedia - Animal Ark - Africa should be used in schools!" - Mobilgamer.cz 7,5/10

"Not just another matching game - the refreshing concept brings something new to the genre" - Hrajmobil.sk 8/10

Animal Ark - Africa HD isn´t just the "original game in new resolution".
Animal Ark - Africa HD is completely revamped and enhanced version! iPad version contains improved graphics (new animations, high quality images etc.) and tweaked gameplay and much more!

Here are some exclusive screenshots and we will publish a new trailer for Animal Ark - Africa HD soon!

Hey guys,

just a quick update. We had some problems with current build, so we had to re-submit the game.

Because of that, Animal Ark - Africa HD will be (hopefully) released on July 12th

Nice! The visuals are gorgeous on the iPad. I'm looking forward to game impressions on this one; I'm thinking of picking this up for the family to play with. Looks like another good game for my iPad.

I'm an app-oholic! And there's no 12-step program...
IAPs = I Ain't Purchasing, son !
