[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

January 25, San Mateo, CA - Family-friendly independent game developer Selectsoft is pleased to announce the release of Chicken Dynamo for iPhone and Android. A brand-new flying game, Chicken Dynamo features no-tap tilt controls and an addictive, unique style of gameplay. Players tilt their phones to steer Ace Dynamo, a speedy chicken looking to fly as far as he can without running into kooky obstacles. Friendly, hand-drawn graphics invite players into the colorful world, while simple controls make the game deceptively easy to pick up (though hard to master!).

Unlike other distance and flight apps, Chicken Dynamo is controlled entirely by the accelerometer and also features unusual "screen wrap" effects. Players guide the crazy chicken Ace Dynamo as he flies through the sky, navigating wacky enemies and grabbing gold coins. How far can Ace get before he collides with something and explodes in a colorful burst of feathers? Quick reflexes are needed to keep Ace from slamming into meteors, propellers, airplanes and more as he speeds along, collecting coins and racking up the miles.

Hold your phone like a steering wheel and gently tilt to send Ace soaring around obstacles and towards coins. Make a quick escape with a sharp dive off the bottom of the screen to pop Ace instantly around to the top of the screen. Reverse the move to send Ace from the top to bottom in the blink of an eye. Talk about fancy flying!

Chicken Dynamo is available now through the App Store in the Games category and on Google Play, and is coming soon in HD for the iPad, the NOOK Color by Barnes & Noble and on the Amazon Appstore.

Headquartered in San Mateo, California, Selectsoft is a leading developer of family-friendly games and apps, creating best-selling games for iOS, consoles, Android, Mac and PC. It's also one of the largest independent publishers of PC and Mac software, featuring licensed content from Broderbund, Disney, The Learning Company and many more. For almost 20 years, Selectsoft has been dedicated to providing affordable, fun entertainment for the whole family. Visit www.selectsoft.com to learn more.
