MOSCOW —November 16, 2012— Shamrock Games, a Russian mobile games developer, today announced the launch of Seabirds HD for iPhone, iPhone 5, iPod touch, iPad and iPad mini, which is set to make its international debut over the next 24 hours, available via the Apple App Store and iTunes worldwide, and can be purchased for $0.99 only. This mind-boggling puzzle adventure game boasts vivid graphics, clever level-design, and highly likable characters. The game is available in multiple languages, and provides users global leaderboards and achievements (Game Center Support).

Seabirds HD is the definition of simple story made fun. The basic premise follows four inseparable penguin friends - Jimmy, Carl, Vincent and Amanda – who have stepped up to the plate in order to aid their troubled colony whose fish supply has run-out.

But, in order to obtain the prized Golden Fish, the player must help the team of friends overcome various obstacles, with the entire fate of the colony resting on the player’s ability to successfully complete levels. As you obtain more fish you unlock new characters and worlds, so you’re always experiencing something new. The power rests entirely in the players’ hands, as they have the option of completing levels skilfully, or to unlock all the worlds at once.

“The brilliant thing about Seabirds HD, is that it’s intelligent, allowing users to test their logic and reasoning skills, in addition to their ability to judge time, while still maintaining an air of fun and adventure.” says Vitali Wiegel, Director of Shamrock Games. He adds “Our objective was to create the perfect balance of clever-cognitive gameplay and diversion – and I am confident we achieved our goal.”
