Hong Kong, Hong Kong – InterBiztech Solutions today is pleased to announce Panda Loo free for iOS, an update to their interactive puzzle game, where the goal is to quickly help the Panda find a route to the bathroom through a crowded office. Touching the screen moves him down the aisle, but it may be necessary to tilt the iDevice to slide obstacles out of his way. Stage 1 (free) is the Office with more than 20 levels, where players must discover how to use their voice, the telephone, copy machine, etc. to help the Panda reach the toilet in time. Stage 2 is the Home, Stage 3 is the Hospital, and Stage 4 is the Park. Each world contains unusual, creative challenges for the puzzle game player.
* Use logic and hand/eye coordination to help the Panda reach the loo in time
* Realistic, overhead view allows the player to analyze the puzzle before moving
* Four Stages of play: Office, Home, Hospital, and the Park
* Background music speeds up when time is running out
* Use touch, tilt, and voice control to help move obstacles from the Panda’s path
Each level of Stage 1 displays an overhead view of a different office, drawn realistically in pencil, with occasional color accents. Each office has a different layout of desks, conference tables, chairs, copy machines, floor plants, bookcases, computers, telephones, windows, file cabinets, and more. The Panda starts at a doorway, located against the side of the screen. He must reach the doorway to the loo (bathroom) before the clock runs out (25 to 60 seconds, depending on the level).
Touching any part of the floor clear of furniture creates a pulsating circle or target, and the Panda immediately travels horizontally, diagonally, and/or vertically to reach it. If the path is clear, he will find his own way to the target circle; players need not guide him step by step. However, if no clear path exists, he will travel as close to the target as possible and then stop. Tapping the screen directly outside the bathroom works perfectly on the first two levels, as the Panda finds his way through the maze and into the loo. At subsequent levels, this strategy fails.
Above level 2 players must analyze the maze, evaluate alternate routes, and experiment to discover which obstacles are movable and which are not. Clearly, the only solution to the puzzle is to get past temporary obstacles by moving them and then the Panda in the correct sequence. This can be quite challenging at higher levels, because moving some obstacles out of the way may simultaneously move other obstacles into the way. In addition to tilting the iDevice, players must discover ingenious methods of sliding obstacles, as touching some objects in the office may trigger a mechanical reaction.
In Stage 2, players must collect Tools as they successfully navigate through each maze. These tools, such as a magnifying glass, timer, keys, TV remote, etc., will be necessary to tackle complex obstacles at higher levels.
“To find the way to the loo, Panda will need to plan his path while removing obstacles along the way,” commented Alfred Chan of InterBiztech Solutions. “You will need logic and IQ to tackle each level, and don’t forget to ‘tap around’ to reveal fun facts and unlock special games before time runs out…”
