United Kingdom and Germany May 23rd, 2009 Chillingo and German development studio SpinBottle Games today announced the availability of Zooloretto on the Apple App Store. Zooloretto is a board game for iPhone and iPod touch where each player controls a zoo and manages animals to try and attract visitors. The zoo must be carefully planned in order to achieve maximum success.

"It is great to see this award winning board game available in the Apple App Store. SpinBottle Games has done a tremendous job utilizing the revolutionary capabilities of iPhone and iPod touch to create a title with really fun gameplay," said Chris Byatte, co-founder and director of Chillingo.

The Zooloretto app is based on a popular board game designed by Michael Schacht and originally published by Abacusspiele. Zooloretto won the prestigious Spiel Des Jahres award in 2007, the 2007 Japan Boardgame Prize as Best Foreign Game for Beginners and is a two time winner of "Best Game" in the Family and Children categories at the Golden Geek Awards. It was the finalist for the Game of the year in Finland and a nominee for the Game of the Year 2008 in the USA.

Zooloretto is available for $4.99 from Apple's App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore/
