Let’s take a break from all the CES news tonight to talk about a cartoon bird. Considering the way Hollywood runs these days, I’m guessing it won’t be long before we’ve got a live action Woody Woodpecker movie coming, likely with Vin Diesel as the woodpecker and Jonah Hill as Chilly Willy. If you’d rather not wait for that (and really, you shouldn’t), you can play Chillingo’s new Woody Wookpecker game for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
Developed by Tintash and based on the classic animated cartoon characters by Walter Lantz, the game stars Woody Woodpecker and his famous pals in a fun-filled comic-racing caper. Featuring a whimsical soundtrack by renowned composer David Ari Leon, intuitive game controls, and a Wi-Fi based multiplayer mode that enables gamers to compete against each other globally, the game is sure to delight fans of all ages.
Woody Woodpecker and four of his pals (Chilly Willy, Winnie Woodpecker, Miss Meanie and Buzz Buzzard) race across three locations with multiple levels, speeding past opponents and grabbing first place by timing touches just right. Wi-Fi multiplayer allows gamers to race against people from all over the world.
Woody Woodpecker is a universal app and is available now for $0.99.
