Android Version of Catcha Catcha Aliens! to be Released, Goes Free-to-Play

Android Version of Catcha Catcha Aliens! to be Released, Goes Free-to-Play

Developer Hotsauce Interactive has announced that its debut mobile title Catcha Catcha Aliens! will be released on Google Play for Android on 7th March.

The mission-based catching game will be released as a free-to-play title, with the previously released iOS version of the game also taking this step on the same day. As for people who have already paid for the iOS version, a press release states that “Alien catchers who have already purchased the iOS App will be credited with 20,000 Zhillings, the virtual currency of the game, if they have the initial version installed on the device when they update their game.”

London-based Hotsauce Interactive was set up by writer and television personality Jonathan Ross, who also provides voice work for Catcha Catcha Aliens! alongside Stephen Fry. Commenting on the Android release and iOS update of the developer’s debut game, Ross said, “We’re quietly pleased with how our first game turned out. An Android version was always in the works but having made the decision to go free to play on iOS devices we decided to wait until we could launch both together.”

“To ensure that everyone who has already purchased the App won’t lose out,” continued Ross, “we are giving free in-game money to everyone who has already bought Catcha Catcha. Two new levels are nearly finished, and we are working on more characters as well as more games. Being involved in this process is even more exciting than I imagined it to be, and I hope that at least some of this excitement comes across in the finished game.”
