Long Beach, New York – New York based Chunky Apps today announces the upcoming release of City Birds for iOS, a dynamic arcade style game that creatively combines color-matching “touch and drag” mechanics with “endless runner” style gaming. Players will need to move fast and think even faster as they maneuver flying birds into their appropriate cages.
The game features sharp, comic-style graphics and fun cartoon themed sounds. Although the goal is simple, the gameplay becomes increasingly challenging as the City Birds try their best to avoid being caged. Players have to swipe dive-bombing eggs, pop balloons armed with TNT and catch up to speedy birds wearing jetpacks. Players will need to remain vigilant and focused as new gameplay elements and animated obstacles complicate the simple objective.
“We were able to strike a unique balance with this game using the intuitive concept of matching colors, but also adding multiple layers of gameplay,” said developer Noah Malewicz. “As a result you have a game that will be enjoyed countless times, by people of any age. I know that people are going to enjoy the addicting gameplay that is inherent to City Birds.”
In addition to the primary goal of saving birds, there are also 9 unique birds available to be unlocked. Each bird has different characteristics and can be used in various situations to earn more coins and achieve even higher scores. Additionally, players can collect power-ups and bonus coins by swiping gift boxes tied to floating balloons.
Various challenges can be met to increase each player’s “score multiplier” and additional coins can be earned by creating “color combo chains”. Players can also make an in-app purchase to hand-pick items that maximize scoring potential and break personal records.
Because some gamers are all about the numbers, City Birds contains two ways to track high scores. The local “Top Ten” leader-board shows the highest scores and furthest distances reached on the device. City Birds also supports Game Center with two global leader boards. Players can compare their bird rescuing skills with friends as well as people all over the world.
“There are so many gameplay avenues available to the player,” said Malewicz. “No one person will have the same experience with this game, as they will find individual skills they want to perfect or point goals they want to achieve. I think that’s really a testament to the value of the game.”
