The songs are also available for download at the Granny Smith website, why not wake up to Granny’s theme every day or have it play every time a friend is calling!

Meet Granny Smith

After eight months hard at work we have now released our next title – Granny Smith! You might be surprised to see very little water in this game, but instead you help an old lady chasing down apple thieves through farmland and cityscapes. The game has been released for both iOS and Android devices on App Store  and Google Play.

We’ve had a fantastic response to the new game, especially from user reviews, scoring an unbelievable 4.9 star average on Google Play.

To celebrate the release we threw two grand release parties, one in Stockholm and one in Malmö. Thanks to all our friends who showed up and shared the moment. Here is a short video excerpt from the Malmö party with the Granny Smith theme performed live by the same musicians that did the original recording for the game. The music is composed by Douglas Holmqvist, who wrote a nice blog post about the project here.

At the release party everyone could try out the game on the world’s only Granny Smith old-fashioned arcade machine:

Sprinkle Junior

The Sprinkle family is getting a little one today, please welcome Sprinkle Junior – A wet playground for kids of all ages! It features 22 playful and creative levels with simplified touch controls, but the same realistic water.

It’s available today on the App Store and Android Market!

Ouie Wants to be Free

It’s been a busy last couple of weeks at Mediocre. Today we’re not only opening up for a general Android audience, but also announcing Sprinkle Free including twelve levels to try out for free before you buy! Best of all – ten of the levels are completely new, so even if you’re a Sprinkle fan already you should go grab it!

It’s available both on the App Store and Android Market

 

Sprinkle to the Masses

We are pleased to announce that we now support almost all the recent Android smartphone models running Android 2.3 or later! Thanks a lot to all our fantastic beta testers who have made this possible.

As a small company it’s really hard to support the vast multitude of Android devices out there. We’re literally just two guys working from home. If it doesn’t work on your particular device please send us an e-mail with your model and Android version at sprinkle@mediocre.se and we will refund your purchase and do our very best to fix the issue!

 

Ouie wants your phone

Ouiedroid

In preparation for a more general Android release, we’re looking for beta testers. If you have a non-Tegra Android phone running Android 2.3 or later and would like to participate, send us a note at android@mediocre.se

Unfortunately we cannot guarantee that you will be selected for the beta program. In particular we’re looking for people with phones from Motorola and HTC, like HTC Sensation and the Motorola Droid series.

Update available

It’s a pleasure for us to announce that our first content update for Sprinkle is available on the App Store and Android Market! It includes:

  • A new world with twelve tricky levels.
  • Game Center support with leaderboards and achievements on the iOS version.
  • Two new levels on the first world.
  • Toggle music and sound independently and support for iPod music playing in the background.
  • Level score and high score to compare your Sprinkle skills with friends.
  • You can now skip levels if you get stuck. However, you still need a certain number of drops to unlock the next world!

Sprinkle world 5

In addition this update also contains six bonus levels as a gift for those of you who used In-App purchase to pay for extra levels before they were made available in the last version. Hit the plus sign in the lower right corner and tap “Get bonus” to access them!

Go get it!
