Pocket God Goes to Hell and Back in Episode 32,“Crack is Wack”

Pygmies Swallowed Whole by Earth, Need Intervention

SAN FRANCISCO - May 26, 2010

Bolt Creative today announced yet another creative way to smite Pygmies with its newest update for Pocket God. Episode 32:“Crack is Wack” introduces a new god power that allows players to split the ground underneath a Pygmy, plummeting the devout follower deep underground into a hellish landscape full of lava, bats and giant demons lurking about.

Having the Pygmy enter this lava paradise initiates a new mini-game called“The Runs” where benevolent gods can help their Pygmy run away from a wave of lava pursuing them as they try to avoid bat droppings that slow them down and certain death from molten rocks.

Included in the new update:

• Ability to split the ground open and swallow Pygmies

• New mini game“The Runs” where players see how far their pygmies can sprint before being incinerated

• New ice monster skin pack for $0.99! Change the giant ice monster into other gigantic creatures such as a:

o Japanese robot that throws spiky, metal balls

o Retro antennae robot that throws metal robot balls with antennas

o Yeti monster who throws poop

o Pink bunny that throws pink balls of fluff

o and more!

Pocket God’s“Crack is Wack” Episode 32 is a free download and is available now.

Pocket God can be purchased in the iTunes App Store. For more information, please visit www.boltcreative.com.
