Hungry Giraffe Munches PS Vita with Fresh Features

After appearances on both PlayStation Minis and PlayStation Mobile, Laughing Jackal’s excellent endless runner Hungry Giraffe is heading to the PlayStation Vita for thirds. The upgraded re-release will boast a bevy of new features, including full Trophy support and online leaderboards. It’ll also implement a handful of new skins, allowing you to scoff your way to the stars as an emu, reindeer, or snake.

Greedy gamers will be able to spend calories in a new in-game storefront, unlocking ace upgrades designed to give you an advantage in your eating endeavours. One new power-up in particular, the ‘Angel Feather’, will give a new lease of life when you’re falling to your doom.

We were quite fond of Hungry Giraffe when we reviewed the Minis version last year, awarding the digital download a favourable 7/10. If you’re unfamiliar with the gameplay, check out the trailer for the PlayStation Mobile version in the space below. Look out for our full interview with Laughing Jackal later in the week.

@Squiggle55 Agreed! The lack of leaderboards was one of my main gripes with the original. You may as well add a point to the original score now! :)

Worst. Game. Ever.

I might have to stop visiting this website now. ;-)

It's not that I don't like time wasters - JetPack Joyride or it's ilk are fine - there are tons of PSN Minis which are practically full games - Fieldrunners for one - but this game just SUCKED. It doesn't even work like a giraffe, it looks like an ostrich or flamingo.

Sammy, how can you diss Angry Birds so much for years but actually like this garbage? I just don't get it. Angry Birds Star Wars is practically Uncharted 2 compared to this. ugh

I thought this game was OK. I played the PS Mobile version and I liked it but I don't think I need to buy it again. It got old after a couple of hours which is fine for the price I paid for it. They need to build in some Jetpack Joyride hooks of unlocks to keep people going.
