It’s survival of the fittest in oh my giraffe. You get to play as an adorable giraffe with a stretchy neck. As you trot along, you’ll have to stretch that neck high up to reach the dangling fruit. But the big and scary cats of the savanna have you on their menu instead of fruit. Chomp at the vines that the fruit dangle from to bounce them off your back and into the face of the lions that are in chase. When the night comes, try to eat as much fruit as you can since the big, bad lions will be sleeping.
