HUMBLE GAMING LAUNCHES EDIMON GAME FOR IPHONE AND IPOD
Have fun with your virtual pet in 4 fast and challenging games; Accelerometer technology enhances gameplay
Humble Gaming today announced the launches of iPhone/iPod game EdiMon, starring the lovable, colorful pet EdiMon who lives inside – yes, inside – your Apple device. It’s time to find your virtual pet a new home!
Two family-friendly titles under the EdiMon brand (EdiMon+ at $1.99 announced last month, and EdiMon full version at $3.99) are available now on the AppStore.
Just released EdiMon – a tribute to the digital pet Tamagotchi™ from the late 1990s – is a fun, fast-paced game that requires lightning-fast fingers to gain points in each of four mini-games: Fitness (a weight lifting game), Wellness (a meditation game), Playtime (a guessing game), each of which has five levels of difficulty, and Hygiene (a task traditionally appearing in virtual pet games). As you play each mini-game, your pets’ emotions and “looks” will change based on how successfully you play – and how fast you play!
Your biggest challenge is to ensure EdiMon grows into a healthy, happy pet by reaching a “real life” balance of physical, mental, and emotional attributes. But watch out! If your gameplay upsets this balance, EdiMon will suddenly change mood and attitude which you must adjust right away! Your pet will show pity, anger, happiness, and pleasure – you’ll know exactly how EdiMon feels as you play the game. Remember to keep your virtual pet healthy and happy!
You can post your winning scores when playing alone or in fun competitions with your friends and family members. See who can take the best care of their virtual pet!
Details About the Mini-games
In the Fitness game, you must provide weight-lifting energy to the EdiMon character by quickly tapping two buttons of the same color simultaneously, among a field of many buttons. The faster you tap, the more energy your pet has!
The Wellness game lets you use the built-in accelerometer to tilt your Apple device in all four directions to prevent EdiMon from falling over and breaking a meditative state – it’s fun to watch and even more fun trying to keep EdiMon upright! Birds and insects are flying around just annoy your pet and break the mood, but you can solve that problem in an instant. Just tap them – they disappear and you score more points!
In the Playtime game, you need to figure out what EdiMon is thinking. When an object appears inside the thought bubble above EdiMon’s head, you need to identify which one of the other on-screen object it matches, and tap it. But wait! There’s something we forgot to tell you…the objects outside the bubble aren’t exactly a match with that EdiMon is thinking about – objects are reversed, shaded, backward, upside down, or…well, you figure it out!
The Hygiene task helps keep your pet clean. When your pet’s hygiene is “low,” there are flies buzzing around and landing on your pet. Once your pet takes a shower, the buzzing flies are replaced with shining stars and you pet is once again happy!
