[prMac.com] Portland, Oregon - Announcing RiMETRIC Games, the developer of Drop-Up 1.1 Universal App, has released an excitingly unique product for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. Drop-Up is a new game that offers players a true 3D gaming environment that is rare. Gameplay allows players to find the best position for their game pieces by spinning grid cubes against an earth at night background. The grids can be viewed from any direction and angle, inside and out. Up to four human or computer-generated players can participate in this challenging, strategy based game at one time.
Drop-Up is a new product in the AppStore. It is unique, offering a gaming environment that is rarely seen in games. The app offers a true, 3D experience that includes a dimension not seen in real life. Players are able to select boards or cubes of various sizes and shapes, as well as who they'll play against.
Moving pieces involves simple finger swipes. Players must move their men to block their opponents and try to get four in a row first. The line of game pieces can be in any direction, thanks to the unique 3D environment. That means a win is achievable, quite literally from any angle. Sounds easy but the gameplay itself challenges the mind to think and strategize in new ways. A player is able to spin their cube to see it inside and out from all sides, angles and directions in order to develop their strategy as they play.
These are some of the amazing features offered in Drop-Up:
* Simple finger-touch interface
* Dramatic earth-at-night background
* Selection of grid shapes and sizes
* Choice of up to 4 human or computer-generated opponents
* Truly incredible 3D gaming environment with an extra dimension

Unlike some other sites, the AppStore does not have a True 3D category but users can find Drop-Up in the Games section on iTunes.
