Niko, a new game slinging its way onto the App Store on January 19, unleashes the fury of a new unlikely superhero that looks like a Mogwai and has the stealth of a ninja. The gamer’s mission is to help Niko rescue his friends who have been captured in a mysterious Otherworld. To do so, the player must use sling shot action through the platform design to race through challenging game levels, dodge traps, flip over monsters, and collect achievements on his way to saving all his friends.
Developed by Sulake, the parent company of Habbo Hotel, one of the largest social game and online community for teenagers at 10 million monthly unique users, Niko is a freemium game that is free to download and play for the first six levels. The full game, with three versatile worlds and 28 total levels can be unlocked for $1.99. The app will be available on iPhone (3GS, 4 and 4S), iPad, iPad 2 and iPod touch.
