We told you it was coming, and now here it is. NimbleBit's Dizzypad successfully navigated its way into the App Store today. Dizzypad, as described by NimbleBit, is a combination of Koi Pond and Doodle Jump, which should mean it is as soothing as sitting by a pond and as addictive as endlessly jumping on platforms. Dizzypad has you guiding a dizzy frog from one spinning pad to the next in an attempt to see just how far you can go. The gameplay consists of simply tapping anywhere on the screen in order to make your frog jump, but you must time your tap well so you don't fall into the pond. The flowers on the right-hand side of the screen indicate how many lives you have which can be gained by being daring and skipping pads. The bar on the left-hand side shows you your current high score progress. The game also features Plus+ integration to provide leader boards and achievements, 15 unlockable frog skins obtained by earning awards, and soothing sounds and graphics. Dizzypad is now available in the App Store for $1.99. Update: Ian Marsh of NimbleBit was kind enough to provide us with six (6) promo codes for Dizzypad to give away to you fine folks.
