PB the Polar Bear and J the Penguin Return to Mobile Devices with a New Adventure
SEATTLE – April 2 – Today, on National PB & J Day, WildTangent Studios launched Polar Bowler, a mobile game starring ‘PB’ the Polar Bear and his penguin pal, ‘J.’ Available for both Android and iOS platforms, this nutty duo returns with more than 70 engaging levels of puzzle gameplay. Polar Bowler is available to download now for 99 cents on the iOS App Store, Google Play, Amazon Appstore and the WildTangent Games mobile game service.
In Polar Bowler, the team of PB and J head out of hibernation for an all-new arcade-puzzle adventure. Propelled by slingshot, PB sits atop an inner tube, as players catapult him across huge arctic courses. Players steer PB through loops, tight turns, over ice and off giant ramps to knock over enough pins to advance. Mystery crates, which may contain coins or one of 10 different specialty tubes with unique pin-toppling traits, appear throughout levels and can greatly affect a player’s Polar Score and game progress. From a clownish Balloon Tube to the mysterious Unicorn Tube, these boosted tubes also come with a complimentary costume, taking PB out of his customary Hawaiian shirt and J out of his butler tuxedo.
“We can’t wait for fans of PB and J to get a taste of their latest mobile adventure,” said Matt Shea, head of WildTangent Studios. “PB’s ‘hang loose’ attitude and zest for fun hasn’t changed, but Polar Bowler brings a whole new strategic style of play. What better way to celebrate National PB & J Day than taking this aptly named duo for spin?”
By knocking down pins and clearing game levels, players build their Polar Score and advance to more challenging maps. From the scientific Tesla Tube that zaps pins, to the horseshoe-tossing Cowboy Tube, players must select the appropriate tube for each new challenge. Players can also earn specialty tubes by smashing PB into crates or by purchasing them at PB’s “Bearhouse.” As an added bonus, players receive a Daily Free Crate, which grants coins and a free tube to help tackle the tundra.
PB, the sunglasses-sporting Hawaiian shirt-wearing polar bear, has brought his jovial “Aloha” attitude to fans since a 2004 WildTangent PC game debut. Since then, more than 20 million people have played Polar Bowler games, including his 2013 mobile game premiere, Polar Bowler: 1st Frame.
