Famed SEGA developer Yuji Naka’s Prope Studio released Ivy the Kiwi on iOS devices last November, but an Android port hadn’t seen a release until today.
There’s a free demo version that includes 10 levels, or you can purchase the full version for $4.99. I think it’s important to note, however, that the iOS version is available for only $2.99. Not really sure why there’s a price disparity there.
Here’s the game’s Engrish-filled product description:
Our heroine is young Ivy, a newborn baby kiwi, already separated from her mother. Eager to find her mother, the little kiwi runs off at a wild dash. But Ivy is unable to fly on her own, and can’t climb over even the smallest bumps or hurdles.
This is where you come in. Help Ivy by pulling vines to guide her through her story and towards the goal. Pulling vines is easy. Just touch the monitor and slide. Watch out for the rats and crows which block your way as you head for the goal.
Flick the vines to toss the kiwi bird, guiding Ivy through the game with a single touch of your finger. 50 challenging stages in all!(*) Clear each stage to complete the storybook with a happy ending.
Features such as extra games for all 50 stages and bonus collectable Red Feathers make it challenging and replayable.
