[prMac.com] Tel Aviv, Israel - After millions of game-plays online, Qwizzly has just released the official iPad version of its celebrated word puzzle hit Qbox. This challenging and addictive puzzle invites players to solve over 1500 different quotes of wisdom spanning over 3 eras of time and offering hours of game play.
With quotes from everyone from Gandhi and Einstein to Confucius and Bierce, adults and children alike will love solving quote puzzles and discovering new words of wisdom through the Old times, Middle Ages and Modern times.
The rules are simple: Original quotes start out by being reshuffled vertically within each column. In order to solve the puzzles, players must click on two letters positioned in the same column. Points are gained by completing the quote puzzles; extra bonus points are given for solving "colored tiles" that last a few seconds and blocked columns can help or hinder the process of finding quotes such as " Corporations: An Ingenious Device For Obtaining Profit Without Individual Responsibility."
The difficulty ramps up nicely in later levels and progress is automatically saved, so you don't need to indulge in a word puzzle marathon if you don't want to. In a pleasant intellectual feature, after completing a level, players can share their solved words of wisdom with their Facebook friends. Developed by Itaynoy.com and created by Seza Waller, Qbox is the perfect game for a lazy Sunday mornings, while sitting at a coffee shop or a quiet evening at home with the kids.
"With Qbox for iPad we strived to bring both elements of fun and challenge to adults and children in the world of words and quotes, while preserving the wisdom from some of the most influential people of our time" Said Seza Waller, the game's creator. "The success we saw from Qbox online confirmed we had a hit game that players wanted to enjoy while on the go."
