[prMac.com] Perth, Australia - Purple Pepper Productions today is pleased to announce the release of Joker Dice, their debut app. Designed for iOS, and optimized for the iPad, Joker Dice is a uniquely challenging game that requires a combination of quick thinking strategy and manual dexterity. The object of the game is to keep the board clear of dice by maneuvering the dice into active chains of matching numbers. Once a chain is active you can add more matching dice to boost your score.
Joker's are wild. Use the Joker as a wild card to complete any chain, or create a chain of Jokers to get a score multiplier and boost your scores. Sound simple? Perhaps, but the game is more challenging than it sounds, the player has to slide or roll the dice in a 3D environment to create matching chains of numbers. The board is constantly being repopulated with fresh dice, and as time progresses the frequency with which new dice appear becomes increasingly faster.
The game requires a real combination of quick thinking strategies and manual dexterity. The game is designed for variety and to suit the players moods with 3 distinct modes of play, several board styles to choose from and 3 levels of difficulty. Combining the difficulty settings with the type of board selected offers a number of options to the player to experience different challenges.
Unlike other level based games, Joker Dice has unlimited levels to play, the only limitation to the game is your ability to keep up with the rate at which the dice appear on the board. Although the game is designed for all iOS platforms, its ideal home is an iPad as the smaller screen area of the iPhones and iPods makes for more challenging game play, although the game is just as enjoyable and addictive on the smaller devices as it is on the iPad.
As an added incentive for players, Purple Pepper Productions is running a special promotion for all purchasers and a $100 iTunes voucher is up for grabs for all purchasers who send a screen shot of their high score posted on their preferred social networking site.
