Halos Fun app now available on the App Store and Google Play

Paramount Citrus and PikPok collaborate on wholesome, fun game for little angels of all ages

WELLINGTON, New Zealand - November 15, 2013 – Paramount Citrus TM, America's largest citrus grower, and leading games publisher PikPok® today announced the launch of the Halos Fun TM app for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Android available now from the App Store and Google Play.  The title is launching alongside the all new Halos TM mandarins from Paramount Citrus. Bursting with Pure Goodness, the palm-sized fruit is sweet, seedless and easy to peel. Wonderful Halos are grown exclusively in California and are available November through April. They’re all natural, non-GMO (non-genetically modified) and are sure to be a hit with kids of all ages.

In the Halos Fun app, three pesky raccoons steal all the halos from a graduating class of mandarins. The determined mandarins are forced to win back and collect their golden halos by being fired out of a slingshot and ping-ponging through a series of more than 100 fun, colorful levels. To add to the Halos fun, Android users can look for 15 special edition sticker codes on Wonderful Halos product and the Halos Facebook Page at www.facebook.com/Halos to unlock exclusive levels and other valuable surprises. With each level set in iconic Californian places, the completely free Halos Fun app will provide hours of exciting gaming for the whole family. 

“The popularity of California mandarins continues to explode and the introduction of Wonderful Halos couldn’t come at a more perfect time,” said Marc Seguin, vice president of marketing, Wonderful Halos. “As part of our 20 million dollar marketing campaign, we are launching our new mobile app, Wonderful Halos Fun, for kids of all ages. It’s one of the many ways our mandarin fans can have some Halos Fun!”

·         Quick, fun, and easy to play with the whole family – completely free game

·         100+ beautiful levels inspired by California’s natural environments to explore

·         Stimulating fun as you use special powers and solve puzzles to earn higher ratings

·         In-game stickers to unlock hidden levels, powers, and secrets
