Enjoy the squishiest shoot em up ever Platypus for Palm OS and Win Mobile

“Astraware and Idigicon are excited to announce the release of Platypus – the squishiest shoot-em-up ever – for Palm OS and Windows Mobile smartphones and PDAs.Based on the cult classic for PC and Mac, Platypus is a fast, frantic and fun side-scrolling arcade shooter with a difference – the entire game is made from clay! The vast continent-spanning city of Collosatropolis has finally reached the limits of its expansion, and tall buildings cover every available space. The Collosotropolan leaders have decided the simplest solution is to invade the neighbouring country of Mungola. They don’t anticipate much of a struggle – Mungolans are simple, earthy types without much love for industry. In fact, Mungola’s entire defence force consists of a single squadron of fighter planes – the venerable F-27 ‘Platypus’.Your mission is to pilot your trusty Platypus and save peaceful Mungola! Fly across the squashy fields and trees, avoid the snowy mountains and protect your planet. Shoot down the enemy ships and marvel as they disappear in a splat! Collect fruit bonuses and a range of power-ups to aid you in your quest! Platypus is a fantastic, fun arcade game featuring 4 massive worlds each with several challenging levels. It’s the perfect casual game for arcade gamers and the perfect arcade game for casual gamers! Platypus is optimised for play with 5-way or stylus and is available for Palm OS and Windows Mobile smartphones and PDAs here. Versions for Symbian S60 and UIQ will be released in Q2 of 2008.
