[prMac.com] Pontirolo Nuovo, Italy - Simiula is pleased to announce the nomination as Most entertaining app - Holiday Season 2010 of Quoridor, their unique board game for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices.
The purpose of Quoridor is very simple: to reach first the opposite side of the board. The App is based on the original board game Quoridor, still produced by the french company Gigamic; hence the french name of the game which means "tunnel".
Where is the catch? To slow the progress of opponents, players can put fences to make the path longer. Think like mice on a lab. There are more rules? When he has run out of fences, the player must move his pawn. The pawns are moved one square at a time and the pawns must get around the fences.
One game can last about seven minutes, and during the game amazing labyrinths are made by players. The game autosave and restore the current game if you quit the app or receive a call.
