Microsoft over time released a couple of apps for the iOS platform, such as Windows Live Messenger and Bing for iPad. While its Office for iOS remains vapourware, the Windows maker last week released Xbox Live client for iPhone and today saw the arrival of Microsoft’s very first iOS game called Kinectimals. Available as a universal binary on both the iPhone and iPad for three bucks , Kinectimals invites you to “use your phone to visit the island of Lemuria and play with, care for and fall in love with your very own cub”.
This cutesy pet simulator is actually a port of the original Windows Phone release from two months ago, but it originally debuted on the Xbox 360. If you own an Xbox 360 and a copy of Kinectimals, you’ll be delighted to know that the iOS version lets you unlock five new cubs for the Xbox 360 version. The full blurb is right after the break.
This irresistible mobile experience gives you the chance to use your phone to visit the island of Lemuria and play with, care for and fall in love with your very own cub. Bring your pet with you wherever you go! If you’ve already experienced Kinectimals on Kinect for Xbox 360, your phone becomes the key to unlocking five new cubs on your console. Stand-alone mobile game features Kinectimals’ signature visual quality, delightful animation and brand new ways to play with your cub!
