[prMac.com] Las Vegas, United States - OstinGames announces the release of Zepi HD 1.4 for iOS, with terrific SuperBall power-up now to help you score even more! The aim of the game is to earn as many points as possible by quickly tapping or sliding same-color bubbles/bugs on the screen. The skins are different in size and bring different number of points. As you touch them, a flashing chain will be formed. As soon as you pause, the string of bubbles will burst giving you a specific number of points that are added to the total score of the current session. Generally speaking, the more bubbles there are in a chain the more points the Leaderboard will record for you! Fantastically, with newly introduced multitouch function, you can make several chains at once!
What makes Zepi HD an outstanding application is its music flavor and the opportunity to create musical improvisations! In the Simple Sound mode, each touched piece sounds the same as the rest. In Instruments or Themes, any object you tap produces a note. As soon as you string together a full musical phrase from a recognizable tune, you score good points that might multiply several times if you are lucky to build bonus chains such as Good, Great, Excellent, or Brilliant.
Remarkably, it is for you to decide which instruments will sound in your session as well as which melodies you will play! Add to this x2 balls that double your score and newly introduced unique SuperBall power-up. The latter is generated by the program at random but its frequency depends solely on the player's playing style and speed of scoring. Along with bonuses, each sound mode offers 30 achievements. To unlock them, players will face various challenges. Those who enjoy improvisations are sure to fall in love with Zepi Music!
