Ignition Entertainment Ships Flipper Critters Into the Wild

Now Available for Nintendo DS…Run, Critters, Run!

Ignition Entertainment Ltd. today announced that Flipper Critters for the Nintendo DS. has now begun shipping to retail in North America. Flipper Critters is a platform based journey where the cute, furry inhabitants travel through a fantasy world filled with puzzles and perilous quests, offering a fun and engaging spin to “traditional” pinball. The game is Rated “E” for Everyone by the Entertainment Software Review Board and is available now at retailers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $14.99.

“Flipper Critters is a cute and challenging adventure, combining classic RPG-like story elements with a pinball game interface,” said Ken Gratz, Director of Product Development at Ignition USA. “The entire family will enjoy playing together on the go with their Nintendo DS, immersing themselves into the beautiful critter world while enjoying arcade-style pinball action.”

Monkey and Tiger travel through the Flipper Critters fantasy world on a mission to fulfill their ultimate goal - saving their friend Bull – or so they think. The Critters progress though each subsequent area of the world by undertaking various challenges and deeds of heroism asked of them by their friends. Each quest takes the furry creatures to a “pinball table” landscaped by mountain valleys, towering castles and even includes a trip to the moon!

Taking advantage of the DS System’s features, the game not only uses the dual screens to show off every aspect of the vibrant, cartoony world, but also incorporates the touch screen to activate switches and ramps. You can also bring a friend into the action through Multi-Card play!

In addition to the story driven adventure, Flipper Critters also includes mini-games featuring their favorite characters. These mini-games challenge players to master new skills, such as in the Flying Battle, where players fly a vehicle and throw bananas, furious carrots, bitter lemons and heated melons at opponents to score points.
