Last month, Tiny Tower [Free] creator NimbleBit in collaboration with Milkbag Games announced Disco Zoo, a sort of casual zoo simulation game mixed with light puzzle solving and disco dancing. Strange combination? Yes. But it got my excitement juices flowing nonetheless. Today, the developers have announced that Disco Zoo is heading to the App Store this Thursday. Here's some new screens from the game.

While exactly what you do in Disco Zoo is still somewhat a mystery to me, I love the adorable pixel art and the bright, shiny disco elements showcased in the initial teaser trailer. As the developers describe Disco Zoo, "Travel to regions around the world and collect everything from pigs to dinosaurs for your Disco Zoo. Discover hidden animals through casual puzzle play. Manage and expand your zoo to maximize earnings. Throw funky disco parties to get your animals and visitors groovin’!" Sounds good to me. Look for Disco Zoo to hit with the rest of the week's new releases on Wednesday night.

      "Excitement juices"? You should probably get a doctor to take a look at that...

      Well, the more I want a game, the more likely it will require iOS 7. So I've pretty much accepted I'll have to wait to play this one.

    I wish they'd make something a little more mature... like a detective rpg that has similar gameplay to Pocket Planes. I've passed on a few of their titles. This will be just one more.

    It is sad to see again and again, what the people depart and with what poor superfluous games they cram their smartphones

    Played in beta and can't wait to get it. It's similar to how games like tiny tower, tiny Death Star ect all work apart from it's a zoo. This time though instead of floors making you money the exhibits do and you log in to wake the animals up.

    It actually does have some gameplay though compared to similar games as to capture the animals it's a puzzle game where you must learn the patterns of the animals and find them in a grid with a limited amount of choices. It's pretty good give it a go
