Hungry Giraffe release a Christmas update for Hungry Giraffe


BRAINTREE, UK–?8 th November 2012

Laughing Jackal have today released their first major update for Hungry Giraffe on iPhone.? Version 1.2 of Hungry Giraffe has more festive features than you could shake a mince pie at, including a new Christmas icon, Christmas lights, festive food and Santa hats.? We’ve also added a friend for our giraffe as our first skin - the appropriately Christmassy Reindeer skin.

But Laughing Jackal have also taken the opportunity to include some more features including a total revamp of the Store, improved icons and simplified descriptions for each upgrade.? Not only that, but with the forthcoming closure of Openfeint, Laughing Jackal have completely stripped out Openfeint and replaced it with Game Center.

More on Hungry Giraffe:

A 20 foot tall, 1200kg giraffe needs a ton of food each day just to survive.

But, oh no! All the tastiest leaves have been eaten, while up in the sky endless streams of snacks, fruit and junk food hover just out of reach!

Can you propel our long-necked, half-starved critter on his twisty-turny upward journey?

Hungry Giraffe is the greatest giraffe-feeding game of all time! Dare you miss out?
