iphone games by michael schacht

Michael Schacht studied graphic design and has worked for 15 years as art director in advertising. In the meantime he works full time as a game designer since 2005 and has over 100 releases with various publishers. His biggest success is the boardgame Zooloretto, the Game Of The Year 2007.
In the following you‘ll find his iOs apps and other digital implementations.

Zooloretto : Use wild and exotic animals and their young to try attracting as many visitors as possible to your zoo. Before you know it, you have too many animals and not enough room for them. That causes negative points! Luckily, you can manage and expand your zoo.

Gold!: Start the game with a single donkey card and from there swap, take, and steal cards in order to acquire highly-valued trios. The donkeys can be great when you’re prospecting for gold, but scoring them is worth negative points, so you must plan your moves with care!

Tricky Chicken: The game follows the same rules that you’ve known from Michael’s original game, Crazy Chicken, including the original artwork but available now in an exciting new format. Interactive help is included along with the complete rules to the original game.

Animal Tycoon: The mobile version of Zooloretto with completly different graphics, interface and AI. Animal Tycoon focuses on filling up the zoo with as many different species as possible in order to attract the highest number of visitors.

The PC-Game of Zooloretto is available since summer 2011 as CD-ROM. Developed by White Bear Studios and released by dtp Entertainment offers the implementation multiplayer-mode for up to 5 players and 36 computer opponents from all around the globe. This one has a different graphical style than the iphone-version.

The iphone implementations of the kids game Where is Leo? and the card game Richelieu are planned for later 2011.
