COMING SOON: Dash N Drop sees the player delivering presents to good little boys and girls.

Wellington games-maker PikPok has teamed up with United States animation giant DreamWorks to develop a smartphone game based on the film Rise of the Guardians which will be released on Wednesday week.

The "sleigh riding" game, called Dash n Drop, will run on Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod Touches, priced at US99 cents and on Android smartphones and tablets.

PikPok is a the mobile app division of New Zealand's largest gamemaker, Sidhe, which decided to largely turn its back on the computer console market last year to concentrate instead on self-publishing its own downloadable games.
