Zombie Granny vs. The Aliens in Google PlayWe’ve moved into the world of Android and Google Play app development by releasing three new apps in Google Play.

One game – “Zombie Granny vs. The Aliens” – hasn’t been released yet in the iTunes Store, so Android users will get a jump on the iOS crowd in playing this arcade-style game.

Here, you’ll help Zombie Granny jump from platform to platform; collect space rocks; power shields and extra game lives, while avoiding green aliens and their globs.

You can download the free game here: http://bit.ly/z-granny

“Run Sparky Run” is also available on Google Play.

In this running-style game, Sparky’s returned and this time he can move quicker through the woods with legs of speed. As you help Sparky run, you can earn extra character lives and bonus points by jumping to collect coins in the sky or by landing on objects that burn such as matches, bonfires, gasoline, and oil drums.

Our third new addition to Google Play is “Little Sparky’s Maze Challenge.” In this classic game, you’ll help Sparky work through a maze of endless and challenging levels. Along the way, you’ll encounter barbed wire, plants, leaves, logs and more.

For iTunes, we’ve updated and released our popular game “Busy Baby Buggy Neighborhood Walk Obstacle Course” (version 2.0; Free) making it compatible with the iOS 8 operating system and new iPhone and iPad devices. Download: http://apple.co/1x16xyi

In addition, we’ve added a tiny update to “The Trout Family Swim and Fish Adventure” (version 3.1; Free) adjusting the screen size and position of “Pinky Trout” so that it’s easier for users to “kiss” a fish and earn 100 bonus points in the game. Download: http://bit.ly/troutgame

On Saturday (March 14), we’ll be releasing a new game. “Catfish The Cat Toy Mice Color Matching Game PRO” will be live. You’ll be able to download the game for $2.99 in the Mountain Woods Media, LLC section of the iTunes Store. The link will also be published on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/MountainWoodsMedia.

We knew eventually the day would come when we were forced to update our apps.updating apps

People (especially app designers) aren’t always keen on change or updating apps. However, when Apple released new devices and a new operating system, developers had to keep up with the times or be left behind. Sometimes, it feels like once we catch up with software updates we don’t have much “down” time before a new device hits the market. Perhaps, this is job security!

New screen sizes with the iPhone 6 and IPhone 6+ (which run 64-bit apps) meant that some of our games didn’t run properly. We wondered how many users purchased a new phone or received one as a gift during the holidays? How many are still playing our apps on iPhone 5?

Answer?

During the last three months of 2014, consumers purchased the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in record numbers. In fact, during the fourth quarter, Apple shipped nearly 75 million iPhones!

Wowzers!

Since December, we’ve made sure our recent game releases run properly on the new devices. Now, however, we’re going back to some of our earlier releases and more popular games and making sure they too will run properly on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus and other new devices. While we’re at it, our updated games will include some new features; bonus point opportunities; power-ups; extra playing times; ability to make in-app purchases and more. Details will be coming soon.

trout gameOur first updated game will be the ever-popular “The Trout Family Swim and Fish Adventure” (version 3.0). This is a fun game and it’s very easy to play. The simple object of the game is to swim upstream; jump from waterfall to waterfall (without falling off) and avoid obstacles along the way.

If you’re ready for the current version (iPhone 5, etc.), follow the links for either the free version or the paid version of our game.
