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

The Space Wolves are finally on Android through the Amazon Android App store! Help Royston the friendly Space Engineer rid his planet of the mischievous Space Wolves by slinging Silver balls at them. To celebrate, the game is available for free until the end of the week. It has already been in the Top 10 in numerous countries including the number 1 spot in Greece, beating Angry Birds!

The game features 32 levels of physics-based puzzles to be solved involving springs, ricochets, anti-gravity beams, worm holes and Jazz-playing extraterrestrial werewolves. Collect 3 stars in each level to complete the mission.

Space Wolves was recently chosen as one of the software manufacturer's Top 20 Games ever made using their software and selected from thousands of games to be promoted as such on the Android Tizen store. It has also been chosen by Chillingo (publisher of Angry Birds and Cut the Rope) to be released for the Samsung App store under their "100% Indie" banner.

Here’s what the players are saying:

"..Space Wolves. Sort of halfway between Cut the Rope and Angry Birds." ~ forum review

"Bored with Angry Birds? Try Space Wolves." ~ diyGamer.com

"A fun change of pace that’s clearly inspired by one of the App Store’s bestsellers, but Space Wolves can stand on its own two feet and isn’t just a clone. If you can’t wait for more from Rovio Mobile you might want to choose this one as a fun change of pace." ~  148apps.com

"the levels all have a cartoony style, and the wolves play jazz for you after every level. The music during the levels is great, and the sound effects are just as cartoony as the level art." ~SlideToPlay.com

"It's a nice little physics puzzler that has great potential.. If you like Angry Birds you might wanna check this one out." ~ TheGameTrail.com

"Angry birds has one thing in its favor that almost nothing else does: the physics feel 'right.' Thankfully, Space Wolves does too!" ~Toucharcade.com (forum review)

"I bought the game and i'm glad I did, it's super cute and alot of fun" ~ forum review

"Fun physics puzzler - Good graphics and like the physics that focus more on getting the right bounce rather than knocking things down." **** ~ app store review

"Just super - The gameplay combines slingshot action with trick-shooting to make one of the freshest physics games on the AppStore. Art and animation are incredibly endearing, and the swinging soundtrack is well-implemented. Physics are perfect and just feel right. I can't find any fault with what's on offer... Highly recommended." ***** ~ app store review

"Brilliant. An excellent alternative to angry birds - a must buy!!!!" ***** ~ app store review
