[prMac.com] Pfaeffikon, Switzerland - Power App today is pleased to introduce Orbalus 1.0 for iOS, their new Game where players control magic orbs that each generate different shock waves and reactions when touched. The game is set in an ancient temple and gameplay is quite unlike other orb games, since players cannot move orbs directly. Players must coordinate touch activating the properties of different orbs to send one of them rolling into the goal. Requiring both strategy and coordination, orbs interact differently, and players must collect particular orbs to win. Dynamically lit graphics and animation leverage the extra power of the A5 processor in the iPhone 4S and iPad 2, providing ultra-realistic objects and energy effects.
Featuring more than 50 levels of play, with additional levels to be added as a free update, Orbalus requires patience and strategy for success. Players must pay attention to subtle details of the makeup of each orb, and observe carefully the global effects when each orb is touched and re-touched. Visible, circular shock waves can be seen interacting with other objects, waves, and fields. Orbalus stretches the capabilities of iOS compatible Newtonian physics engines to new levels of subtlety and complexity.
* Simple, yet riveting and addictive touch-optimized gameplay - you'll always want one more try to refine your strategies and timing
* Stunning, High-Resolution, dynamically lit graphics on Apple A5 powered devices like the iPhone 4S
* Optimize orb gathering strategies in 50 levels - more levels are coming soon via free updates
* Game Center Leaderboards and Achievements
* Atmospheric, in-game music that dynamically adjusts to the current game situation
"The gameboard is brightly lit at one end and deeply shadowed at the other. The ancient game played on smoothed blocks of stone has begun. Orbalus will challenge your skill and your imagination," stated a spokesperson from Power App.
* iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
* Requires iOS 4.3 or later (iOS 5 tested)
* 160 MB

Orbalus 1.0 is $0.99 (USD) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Games category. Review copies are available on request.
