FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

BEIJING – Jan 16, 2019 - Hang Line, the ultimate extreme physics action climber from Epic Games and LucasArts alumnus Ed Kay and Crossy Road and Rodeo Stampede publisher Yodo1, has swung onto iOS and Android devices.

Embark on an epic endless adventure and conduct daring rescue missions spread across five dangerous mountain environments using a trusty grappling hook. Zip through more than 50 levels and four distinct infinite climber modes, each with a different combination of challenges.

Fly to the summit in style with only the best and snazziest in helicopter ingenuity and design. Outfit your rescue squad with the latest tech, capable of withstanding the harshest elements, which can be purchased using reward money. Save more than 80 stranded survivors as you ascend, scale and scramble towards the frozen peaks.

Deftly dodging mountain lions and keeping a safe distance from the horns of angry goats is a must, except when those shaggy head-butters can make for a good launch pad. Watch out for falling rocks, razor sharp ice sheets and molten lava.

Hang Line was designed as a way for me to capture the primal exhilaration of climbing with a simple and intuitive control scheme that anyone can learn in an instant,said Ed Kay, Of course learning is only the beginning. Mastering Hang Lines challenging, hand-crafted levels is where the fun truly lies.

Hang Line can be downloaded free from the iOS App Store and Google Play. It offers optional microtransactions to purchase in-game currency and special items and supports English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Russian, Portuguese (Brazilian), Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Japanese, Korean and Arabic.
