[prMac.com] Oakland, California - Developers Mark Morris and Dave Florek have introduced a Facebook application for monitoring the high score table hosted at PlayTorus for their iPhone and iPod Touch game Torus. Torus High Scores is available now on the Facebook application directory, enabling players to follow the action from their profiles.
Also announced is a price reduction on Torus from $1.99 to 99 cents for 2009. Torus is an iPhone original - catch tori as they fall from the sky by tilting your device to slide the base hook around the play area. You take damage each time a torus hits your base or the floor, but you can replace health points by catching the glowing green tori that appear when you are in danger. You get one chance per game, but lots of health points to start with. Torus features ambient background music, and immersive gameplay that you can master in seconds.
Sound effects are placed in 3D space as they occur, synchronized catch, bump and miss locational sound effects combine with an intensifying pace to enhance accelerometer interaction. The deceptive simplicity of the game design and intuitive interface allow casual gamers to enjoy a commute or a break, while enabling more serious gamers to compete for recognition on the global online high score table. Torus is available on the iTunes App Store now.
