thank you for creating this topic.

additional information:

Animal Ark - Africa HD is Animal Ark - Africa for iPad.

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!

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." by Devilishly Good

"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



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

Wait, what? I'm confused. From the looks of the links, the game is available now, but then the developer posted that the HD version was submitted to Apple a few days ago and should be released on June 22nd. It's July 12th today, last I checked. So, is it out or not? Is this really a non-HD iPhone/iPod version.
