[prMac.com] Berlin, Germany - Ugly Toys announces the release of Arabesque, a multi-touch game where you match colored orbs together by touching them simultaneously. Pop up to five orbs at the same time and earn points while the timer ticks down. The unique multi-touch gameplay and the mesmerizing ambient electronic soundtrack will keep you coming back to pop some more orbs. This is a match game unlike any other; something really unique exclusive for iOS.
There are two game modes to choose from. In Time Attack, you face a fixed timer of two minutes that ticks down while you pop the 6 different orbs. Try to pop as many orbs as you can but beware of touching different colored ones, because this will give you a time penalty shortening your timer even further. This game mode is perfect for a quick play with its maximum play time of two minutes. Be fast and precise to score big points and rise up the leaderboards.
Endless Mode, gives the multi-touch fun a steeper difficulty curve. This time your timer is only 30 seconds long, but you can prolong the game by poping orbs, because this time you not only score points but also get time bonuses. The more equal orbs you pop at the same time the bigger the score and the time bonus will be. But this is not everything. The endless Mode introduces color gradients. The colors of the orbs shift over time, so that you have to differ between 24 different orbs, 6 colors at a time. Beware of the gradient shift and try to clean up older colors to make space for the newer ones. This game mode is the challenge for advanced players. Be careful during poping, don't mix up colors.
The game's soundtrack features four tracks from the debut CD of Hollan Holmes, A Distant Light, with almost twenty-four minutes of mesmerizing ambient electronic soundscapes, the perfect backdrop to the immersive nature of Arabesque.
