Blue Fang Games Launches Its First iPhone Game

"Lion Pride" Challenges Players to Stay at the Top of the Food Chain

WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwire - August 10, 2009) - Blue Fang Games™, developer of the leading Games for Windows® franchise "Zoo Tycoon™ and highly anticipated World of Zoo™ for WiiTM, Nintendo DSTM and Windows® PC," today announced the launch of its first iPhone game titled "Lion Pride."

"Lion Pride" is an addictive, fast-paced game in which the player controls lions as they stalk their territory and ambush prey. Using simple finger gestures, the player positions their lions, slowly stalks their prey and runs in for the attack. Players can coordinate multiple lions to trap animals or take down larger game. It's a race against the clock -- if the player doesn't provide enough food for their cubs, they will go hungry and it's 'game over!'

"We are very excited to develop and publish our first game for the iPhone platform," said Hank Howie, President of Blue Fang Games. "Blue Fang sees tremendous potential in applying our unmatched development expertise in animal games to mobile platforms. We're eager to share the fun and addictive gameplay of 'Lion Pride' with iPhone users around the world and look forward to expanding our iPhone portfolio of games."

Lion Pride is available now from Apple's App Store for $0.99. More information on Lion Pride can be found at www.bluefang.com/games/lionpride.
