- Sony PlayStation Digital Platforms Community Manager Paul Sullivan
announced that UFO Dad arrives this week as part of their PlayStation Mobile updates.
To quote: Every Tuesday, there are new games, apps, and updates added to PlayStation Mobile. UFO Dad - our featured game of the week - and Night Riders were released this week. We also have a ton of updates on the way.
We're at the midpoint of our Festive Giveaway, which started Thanksgiving week. If you didn't get a chance to snag some of the games then, we'll kick it back up (after a break for Christmas) during the week of January 8th.
Also, don't forget that you still have time to pick up either an Xperia Z smartphone or tablet to get 10 free PlayStation Mobile games, a 60 day trial of Music Unlimited, and six free movies (including Elysium). Click here for details
UFO Dad by Edit Mode ($4.29)
Kevin Oke, Lead Designer and founder of Edit Mode, provided us some insight into this exclusive for PlayStation Mobile:
We at Edit Mode are extremely proud to bring you UFO Dad, exclusively on PlayStation Mobile. UFO Dad is a mashup of platforming and match 3 - think varying degrees of Mr. Driller + Tetris Attack + Bejeweled + Sokoban. Development was largely inspired by Mr. Driller (a series I love), but over time the game has taken shape into its current form.
We're very excited to be one of the first PlayStation Mobile titles to support PSN leaderboards, so you can compete with your friends for intergalactic (or just neighborhood) grilling supremacy.
Our hero is a suburban dad, master of the grill, sufferer of male pattern baldness, and wearer of sandals with socks. His homemade "wonder spatula" has attracted attention from those beyond the Milky Way - hungry aliens have come to abduct him and steal his scrumptious burgers!
Armed with the "Wonder Spatula," you can use it to chain burgers of the same color, keep the invaders at bay, and go for the highest score.
The more burgers you chain, the more points you earn. Our hero will have to stay on his toes and be careful as the UFO's tractor beam will try to pull him and his burgers upward. Survive the invasion, unlock new family members, and compete to dominate the online leaderboards!
In the future we'll be updating the game with new features for free. Follow us on Twitter
to stay in the loop.
