-- Fish Hooks Available Now from the App Store --
Television Group's Digital Media team is launching "Fish Hooks," a new
physics-based puzzle game for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch based on the
popular Disney Channel series of the same name. The game is available
for free from the App Store in more than 70 countries.
Hooks features Milo the fish and a host of his aquatic friends from
Freshwater High. In the game, the ever "crabby" Randy Pincherson lives
up to his mischievous ways, challenging Milo to an elaborate obstacle
course game that he has created. Players assume the role of Milo and
must master the art of making and popping bubbles to successfully
navigate the treacherous waters of Randy's diabolical design. Fish Hooks
voice talent Kyle Massey (Milo) and Joshua Sussman (Randy) provide the
voice over for the game.
Players will float,
fall and fling themselves through the mazes to advance, all while
maneuvering with great precision. Perfect timing and puzzle solving
skills are essential to avoid the increasingly difficult obstacles and
master all of the underwater moves needed to win. Game features include:
* Over 50 levels of marine madness
* The ability to unlock 5 of Milo's best friends that can be used as player characters in the game
* Master the art of bouncing off turtles* Surf whirlpools, fly through tubes and free fall
* Collect apples in each level and to get the highest score
* Beat Randy Pincherson at his own game and win back the trophy
Hooks is an inventive animated comedy series, set inside a giant fish
tank in Bud's Pet Shop. It presents high school life as seen through the
eyes of three BFFs (best fish friends), Bea, Milo and Oscar. Together
they experience life's typical challenges and triumphs, including
friendship, dating and sports, along with more atypical situations such
as giant lobster attacks and, with the use of special land suits, school
field trips to the hamster cages. The series was created by children's
book illustrator Noah Z. Jones and features a notable voice cast,
including: Chelsea Kane ("Baby Daddy," "Dancing with the Stars") as Bea,
Kyle Massey ("Dancing with the Stars," "Cory in the House") as Milo and
Justin Roiland ("The Sarah Silverman Program") as Oscar. New episodes
of "Fish Hooks" air Fridays on Disney Channel.
