CARLSBAD, Calif.– Nov. 15, 2012– Appy Entertainment—creators of the hits Trucks&Skulls NITRO, SpellCraft School of Magic, and FaceFighter Ultimate—is unleashing Animal Legends into the wild today. A free-to-play fantasy epic for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, Animal Legends’ superior story, gameplay, and graphics are sure to strike a chord with iOS gamers—who now can now enjoy a whole new cooperative experience using their friend's characters to rid the Animal Kingdom of Evil!
Animal Legends is a fast-and-fun iOS role-playing game (RPG) where players quest for loot and glory with their friends to defeat the Vampire Frog Skulk. But first they need to create a hero from one of three animal types—each with their own advantages and skill paths:
With SpellCraft School of Magic, Appy drew on the studio’s background as fantasy gaming geeks to create the ultimate solo wizard experience. In Animal Legends, the developers wanted to capture the fun of playing World of Warcraft or a tabletop RPG with friends and pack it into a game that players can carry in their pockets and play for just a few minutes at a time. Animal Legends includes generous amounts built-in content—such as 50 quests from the start, epic treasures, and magical artifacts that unlock powerful battle tactics.
Tactical combat—with weapon attacks, skills, spells, and combos between different character types that are key in RPGs—is a core feature of Animal Legends. The game ships with a huge variety of foes—including the aptly-named Undead Cows, sneaky Fox Goblins, and fearsome Ogre Bunnies. And because friendship is the greatest treasure of all, players get to invite friends' characters to join on dangerous quests—with greater riches and fame for everyone. In a new twist on social gameplay, Appy introduces a brand new feature in Animal Legends:“borrowing” a friend’s characters, which accelerates leveling, loot, and in-game currency in a massive way.
“We see Animal Legends as a big step toward the next generation of social/mobile games,” says Chris Ulm, CEO, Appy Entertainment.“I think Appy has created a new kind of RPG with this game– bundling detailed graphics, easy-to-grasp-but-tough-to-master gameplay, and endless customization options in a cooperative adventure that is incredibly fun. We always wanted to create a huge world for players to have fun in– both together and solo– and I think we have succeeded with Animal Legends.”
Compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3 rd generation), iPod touch (4 th generation), iPod touch (5 th generation) and iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later. Animal Legends is optimized for iPhone 5.
