Zoonies – Escape from Makatu coming to Nintendo DSiWare

After two years of hard work, Kiloo Games is set to release a new unique physics-based puzzle-platformer. It's called Zoonies – Escape from Makatu.

The game's story unfolds with protagonist Leo the lion as he crashes his plane deep in the jungle. Using a parachute, Leo escapes, only to be hunted down by Tubas, a native warrior tribe.

From that point, it's your job to prevent him from being captured by the Tubas' leader, Makatu. As Leo runs from both Makatu and the Tubas, you have to keep him safe by clearing a path.

Unlike in conventional platform games, you don't directly control Leo, instead controlling the action around him with the touch of a stylus. You have to beat enemies, solve intricate puzzles, and avoid numerous traps.

Zoonies is slated for an 'early 2011' release, so it should be headed for Nintendo DSiWare some time in the near future. The price is yet to be announced.
