App Description** FEATURED iPHONE GAME AND iPAD GAME OF THE WEEK (05/17/12) **
"This game is over-the-top in all the best ways." -Touch Arcade
"Simple, hectic, and funny." -Slide to Play
Join daredevil scientist Chuck Darwin's elite team of zoological defenders and embark on a globe-trotting adventure to rescue endangered animals from extinction. Dodos, gorillas, pandas, lions and more are GOING TO DIE unless you catch them with your official Extinction Squad trampoline and bounce them to safety. Miss and they will be nothing but bloody smears on the ground...and footnotes in the natural history books.
Simple one-touch control means you'll be saving the species in no time. Travel the world across six continents and two game modes to unlock additional animals. Collect or buy upgrades to make your missions easier. Plus, try your luck with Chuck and take a spin on the Wild Wheel.
From Adult Swim Games and PikPok, who brought you the likes of “Robot Unicorn Attack” and “Monsters Ate My Condo”.
** TWO EPIC GAME MODES **
Adventure - Travel to Africa, Australia, Asia, Antarctica, America and the Amazon saving ever-larger populations of animals on the brink of extinction.
Countdown - Save enough animals within the time limit and reach the checkpoint to extend your game. But as time ticks down, you’ll be expected to save more and more of the animal kingdom.
Don't be a dodo! Make the natural selection and join Chuck Darwin's Extinction Squad today! Here's what players are saying:
