Launching Pad Games is announcing a major update to their side-scrolling arcade game, Mighty Fin. Originally released for iPhone and iPod touch, Mighty Fin is now a Universal app with full iPad support. It has also doubled in content, with 8 new levels and 32 new costumes adding to the game's addictive fun. Mighty Fin costs only USD $0.99 (NZD $1.29) on the App Store and existing customers will get access to the new content via a free update.
Mighty Fin follows the curious adventures of Fin, a fish in need of a holiday who has signed up for Shady Sal's suspiciously cheap Round the World Tour. The game's initial levels took Fin on an increasingly dangerous voyage through a variety of aquatic tourist traps, with Survival and Endless gameplay modes providing additional challenges for skilled swimmers.
With today's update Fin's trip takes a decidedly surreal turn, with unexpected new locations that include a sticky-sweet candy river, a futuristic underwater city, and choppy seas swarming with pirates and ninjas. Like Mighty Fin's launch content, the new levels include unlockable gameplay modes and hilarious collectable costumes. The addition of Universal app support makes Mighty Fin's colorful cartoon graphics and intuitive one-touch controls even more accessible to iPad players. The new version also includes new music for even the original levels, with a unique theme for each of Fin's destinations.
Upon its June launch, Mighty Fin garnered positive comparisons to the popular Tiny Wings and quickly earned a 4.5 star App Store rating from fans. Its addictive gameplay and extreme value impressed reviewers, with PocketGamer calling it "guaranteed to entertain." 148Apps praised its "responsive, simple controls [and] fun atmosphere" and GamePro urged, "Get this game. I'm serious. Do it now."
Mighty Fin for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad can be downloaded for $0.99 from the App Store: http://itunes.apple.com/app/mighty-fin/id434539624
