Trophies – Show off your giraffe feeding skills with Laughing Jackal’s shiny range of Trophies

Online Leaderboards – Compare your Hungry Giraffe scores with the best players from around the world.

All-new Store menu – Eat calories in-game then spend them on upgrades and power-ups in the Store.

Three new skins – Fed up of gobbling your way from the savannah to the skies as a giraffe? Then why not use our fabulous reindeer, emu and snake skins.

Brand new Angel Feather power-up – If you find yourself falling to your almost certain doom why not try and catch yourself with the ever-useful Angel Feathers?

Amazing upgrades – Use your calories to unlock later Stages, nerf the effects of poison, pills and weights, get more boost from low-calorie foods, store more Hard Hats, give Chillies a better kick and more!

Digital Game Guide – See our gameplay hints and tips and learn about more about the content of the game.

I wonder if Laughing Jackal will take a cue from Halfbrick and make Hungry Giraffe free to play. With Jetpack seeing over 1,000,000 players so far in 2013, it might not be a bad idea, especially with the calorie/store mechanics that are being added.

If you want to check out the Hungry Giraffe on your Vita right now, there is a version of the game on PlayStation Mobile. While it doesn’t have the above enchantments, it is still a blast to play. We will be sure to let you know more about the native Vita version when get more details.

    This makes me worry about the future PS Mobile games released. I’d rather have them as native Vita games. I don’t want to have bought a game on PSM only for a better (imo obviously) version to come out on Vita natively.

    It’s annoying. Granted, I did buy Alien Breed despite already buying it on PSM. Mostly because the PS+ sale though.

    I hope this isn’t a huge trend. At least not this quickly.
