[prMac.com] San Jose, California - Ideateca, a burgeoning new mobile app developer focusing on games, has today announced the recent release of VideoPuzzle! for iPhone and iPod touch devices running on iOS 4.1 or later. Billed as the first slide puzzle game of its kind, VideoPuzzle! allows players not only the freedom to turning their personal photos into block based sliding puzzles, but their own videos as well. Additionally, the game has a library of pre-loaded video and photo puzzle available for users as well. The first sliding puzzle capable of having each interactive piece be a fully animated video segment, VideoPuzzle! is currently available for download on the Apple App Store for only $0.99.
This entertainment app manages to keep a traditional structure while taking a wholly new spin on the slide puzzle genre. The app itself is separated into four unique playing sections - Arcade Mode, Photo Mode, Camera Mode, and Video Album Mode. Perhaps the most revolutionary of these four options, Camera Mode allows players to create and solve puzzle whose content is streamed live from their mobile devices' cameras into the app! Users can hold their cameras up to famous buildings and solve their puzzle, or even turn video of their faces into a dynamic moving puzzle grid in real time if they have a front facing camera! VideoPuzzle's Arcade mode challenges users to move from one stage to the next by solving increasingly more difficult puzzles within the allotted time. The app's Photo and Video album modes allow players to create unique puzzles from personal videos and pictures stored on their mobile device as well.
This innovative new game doesn't simply turn your photos and videos into puzzles, it turns them into extremely fun and endlessly playable ones. The app's user interface is exceptionally intuitive and simple, while the game's animations and touch controls create a fluid and responsive gaming environment that ensures players won't become frustrated with laggy gameplay. Your mobile device connects you to the world, so its only fair that you aught to have a mobile gaming solution that is equally connected and immersed in the world around it. Go ahead, turn the world around you into a fun filled puzzle one block at a time with VideoPuzzle!
