Penkie Pop, Chart Topping Arctic Runner now Free
Seoul, Korea – enCuv Studio’s freshly launched title, Penkie Pop, isn’t just an endless running game. According to a developer spokesperson, Penkie Pop is also a runaway hit. The game’s designers and developers are celebrating the application’s instant success on the iTunes App Store and Google Play store by offering the game for free.
Penkie Pop capitalizes on the recent surge of popularity enjoyed by 3D endless running titles, but brings new features and inspired design to the table to tempt gamers. So far, this strategy has been successful.
“Downloads are exceeding expectations, and positive ratings are rolling in,” said Kevin Kim, Marketing Director at enCuv Studio. “The game reviewed very well with our focus testers, so the positivity isn’t unexpected. But many great games go unnoticed. We’re very happy to say that isn’t the case with Penkie Pop.” So far, the game has earned a 4.9 rating in the Google Play store.
Penkie Pop features a playful penguin that depends on the player’s skill to take flight and race his way to a warmer climate. By tapping the screen repeatedly, the player keeps Penkie airborne. To steer, players choose tilt or touch controls according to their preference. While racing along an obstacle filled path, Penkie must dodge flying debris and snatch up stars, gems, and boost items as well. The game provides endless hours of exciting play, and invites players to share their successes – and show off their bragging rights – via Twitter and Facebook integration. The in-app store uses gems as currency, which can be earned in-game or purchased.
Penkie Pop can be downloaded from the iTunes App Store and Google Play store free of charge, and is compatible with most devices using iOS 4.2 and Android 2.2 and above.
