BBC Worldwide have announced that Tongue Tracer, a brand new mobile gaming franchise created by BBC Worldwide Digital Entertainment and Games, is now available to download for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
Full details, plus screenshots, after the jump.
In the game players take control of a colour-changing chameleon named Chuck. He’s on the run from a hungry eagle, and needs to hide fast, but swarms of devious bugs are trying to give away his location. Players use touch screen controls to trace a path directing Chuck’s lightning fast tongue past hazardous objects and dangerous creatures, so he can slurp up enough coloured bugs to blend into the leaves behind him.
Tongue Tracer is a fast paced, accessible game for all ages, where the levels start simply but become increasingly more challenging. There are 90 levels in total, each with a variety of pesky bugs and hazards, which all have differing abilities and behaviours.
Robert Nashak, EVP Digital Entertainment and Games at BBC Worldwide said “Tongue Tracer is fun to play, visually stunning, and people of all ages will love it. We’re really happy with the finished product and we can’t wait to introduce Chuck the Chameleon to the world.”
Tongue Tracer is available for $0.99 from the App Store on iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch, or at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tongue-tracer/id479980896?mt=8.
