TELETOON Launches 2 New Mobile Apps
Toronto, ON -- TELETOON’s gaming universe has expanded again with the launch of Humans VS Vampires for iPhone and iPod Touch on Friday, August 31. Humans VS Vampires is a new My Babysitter’s a Vampire app which comes hot on the heels of Find the Earl for iPad, a Skatoony app that launched earlier this summer.
“The TELETOON experience extends beyond the television set. With viewers increasingly getting their entertainment via iPhone, iPad and iPod devices, the release of these new apps will bring our audience yet another unreal experience to their daily dose of amusement,” said Gavin Friesen, Director, Interactive, TELETOON Canada Inc.
My Babysitter’s a Vampire: Humans VS Vampires
Following the success of the award-winning online game of the same name and released to coincide with the premiere of My Babysitter’s a Vampire’s second season on TELETOON, this new incarnation of Humans VS Vampires turns the vampire-slaying fun into a mobile experience. Developed for TELETOON by Secret Location with support from the Bell Broadcast and New Media Fund, the game is free to download in the App Store under the title Humans VS Vampires. A one-time 99 cent in-app upgrade allows players to unlock all five good guys and five undead characters.
In this badge system game, the user can play as either a human or a vampire, using over 30 battle moves to defy their opponent, including three special moves unique to each character. Players battle their way through five levels and five different opponents, with rivals getting increasingly more difficult to beat as the game progresses.
The television series My Babysitter’s a Vampire, developed and produced by Fresh TV, premieres its second season on Thursday, September 6 at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT on TELETOON. This season sees Ethan Morgan continue to battle supernatural enemies in Whitechapel while trying to get up the nerve to ask Sarah, the newly full-blooded vampire (and his former babysitter), on a date.
Skatoony: Find The Earl
In this hidden object adventure iPad app, developed for TELETOON by marblemedia, Skatoony host Chudd Chudders must travel around the world to rescue his co-host The Earl and save the show from cancellation. The game is available on the App Store for $1.99 under the title Find the Earl.
Adapted from the U.K. version of the innovative children’s quiz show, Skatoony is a Hollywood Squares-inspired animation and live-action show for kids, featuring real-life players and an assortment of well-known animated characters from other TELETOON original productions. Hosted by Chudd Chudders and his sidekick announcer The Earl, this series features contestants competing in four side-splitting trivia-based rounds to win bragging rights and a terrific prize. Skatoony airs Sundays at 5:30 p.m. ET/PT on TELETOON.
My Babysitter's a Vampire: Humans VS Vampires and Skatoony: Find The Earl Apps are available for free from the App Store on iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad or at www.itunes.ca/appstore.
