Leading mobile game maker, Jam City, in collaboration with Dr. Seuss Enterprises and White Space Entertainment, is bringing one of the world’s most popular characters, Dr. Seuss’s the Grinch, to mobile gaming for the first time ever this holiday season.

Panda Pop, the world’s most popular bubble shooter game with over 100 million downloads, is featuring a complete “Grinchmas” holiday takeover from now until January.

“The Grinch’s whimsical tale has been a part of holiday traditions for sixty years now.” added Susan Brandt, president of Dr. Seuss Enterprises. “By organically featuring the Grinch in a compelling, interactive mobile game like Panda Pop, we can bring this familiar tale to fans in a completely new way.”
