** FEATURED iPHONE GAME AND iPAD GAME OF THE WEEK (05/17/12) **
"This game is over-the-top in all the best ways." -Touch Arcade
"Simple, hectic, and funny." -Slide to Play
Join daredevil scientist Chuck Darwin's elite team of zoological defenders and embark on a globe-trotting adventure to rescue endangered animals from extinction. Dodos, gorillas, pandas, lions and more are GOING TO DIE unless you catch them with your official Extinction Squad trampoline and bounce them to safety. Miss and they will be nothing but bloody smears on the ground...and footnotes in the natural history books.
Simple one-touch control means you'll be saving the species in no time. Travel the world across six continents and two game modes to unlock additional animals. Collect or buy upgrades to make your missions easier. Plus, try your luck with Chuck and take a spin on the Wild Wheel.
From Adult Swim Games and PikPok, who brought you the likes of “Robot Unicorn Attack” and “Monsters Ate My Condo”.
** TWO EPIC GAME MODES **
Adventure - Travel to Africa, Australia, Asia, Antarctica, America and the Amazon saving ever-larger populations of animals on the brink of extinction.
Countdown - Save enough animals within the time limit and reach the checkpoint to extend your game. But as time ticks down, you’ll be expected to save more and more of the animal kingdom.
Don't be a dodo! Make the natural selection and join Chuck Darwin's Extinction Squad today! Here's what players are saying:

[adult swim] has better iOS games
Extinction Squad is an amusing little time-waster that oozes with that weird, off the wall charm you get from [adult swim]. That being said, I was duped by this game. Extinction Squad gives the impression that there are various levels and stages to complete. Instead, you're given a single chance to rack up the highest score possible by saving the animals from plunging to their deaths. And of course, there are IAPs to fluff up your score even higher. It's a funny little ditty to blow a couple minutes or so but doesn't have any long-lasting staying power, in my opinion. You'll probably play it for a couple weeks and then move onto something else. Plus, the game currently doesn't support the iPhone 5 widescreen.
I just don't think this type of game would hold my attention for too long other than maybe a week or so. But for what it is, it's pretty cool. And the bloody guts and splattering noises when you accidentally drop the animals is nasty but in a cool way! (I mean that in the sanest way possible! Lol)
Extinction Squad is one of the few $0.99 games that I've actually put more than $5.00 into. The original purchase, coin doubler, and extra coins were all VERY much worth it. I'm absolutely loving all of these great Adult Swim games, especially the ones that have come out over the last year and a half or so. Pik-Pok, GrumpyFace and Rocket Jump have all done an AMAZING job bringing fresh, addictive and wacky games to the AS lineup, and I couldn't be more thankful or excited about it. If you have yet to pick this one up, do yourself a favor and grab it; then go and grab Major Mayhem, Velocirapture, Monsters Ate My Condo (and Super MAMC), Bring Me Sandwiches!, Super Mole Escape, Heads Up Hot Dogs, Snoticles and Girls Like Robots... They are all titles that have earned permanent spots on all of my iDevices.
Great game, runs well.
I'd like to see more purchasable things though, increased chances for more bonus boxes (and/or chances for specific boxes), more upgrades for shields and magnets, etc. Also, I wouldn't mind paying extra for it as an upgrade, but being able to have bomb shields carry over from location to location in adventure mode would be nice- since it's not a timed bonus, there really isn't a reason for it to go away between levels. Maybe add an infinite mode, and a zen mode?
I've been playing less than a week, and I've unlocked everything, and the star awards have reset back to the lowest level since I've mastered them all! Which I mean to say: This is a great game, I can't put it down!
