NITRO GAMES RELEASES CHARLIE CHUCKER!

Meet Charlie Chucker: World's swingiest gravedigger!

Charlie Chucker is a 2D physics puzzler about a gravedigger with a passion for ragdoll golf – a curious cross between golf and ragdoll-chucking, where the object is to swing self-made ragdolls into coffins. Charlie Chucker is certified “unique” -- one part strange, three parts fun!

Your job is to become one with the game’s unique brand of black humor and cartoony art style and guide Charlie on a quest to hone his skills at the world’s finest ragdoll golf courses. Once you’ve turned him into the world’s best (and possibly, only) ragdoll golfer, you can tell your friends how awesome you are!

Fabulous features:

  • Four hip, happenin’ chapters, including “Scottish Spring” (jacket optional) and “Finnish Winter” (bust out the parka!)
  • 60 super-sweet levels!
  • 14 different ragdolls: some fly, some flop, and some…well, you’ll have to find out for yourself!
  • Crazy weather conditions, including strong winds and giant rolling snowballs.

A unique casual game for anyone not allergic to coolness, Charlie Chucker is proof that even gravediggers can have fun. Download and start chuckin’!

NEW YORK – October 28, 2010 - Shiver me timbers! As we near All Hallows Eve, the undead awaken in this arcade shooter game, Woody Two-Legs ”Attack of the Zombie Pirates” . The least famous pirate of the Seven Seas has had more than a bit of bad luck until he scored himself the booty of a lifetime or even an eternity. Just as Woody Two-legs is about to bury his treasure, the owner of the pillaged loot, Mr. Jones, and his unruly entourage of undead pirates catch up with him. Small though he might be, Woody Two-Legs will not give up without a fight.

Developed by Nitro Games and published by Paradox Interactive, join Woody Two-Legs in his battle against zombies, skeletons and grim bosses. Chase high scores on the online scoreboard, check in on a regular basis to ensure no bilge-sucking thieves have dethroned your score and unlock various difficulty levels ultimately ending up in the extreme Nightmare-mode in a battle with Mr. Jones.

About Woody Two-Legs
Woody Two-Legs is a casual score chasing arcade shooter that offers players various degrees of un-lockable difficulties, building gradually on intensity with wave after wave of attack by the retinue of undead pirates and their unholy allies.
