[prMac.com] Brisbane, Australia - Webback Services, an Australian-based technology company has announced that Version 2.0 of iOS puzzle game Arabian Tiles, inspired by the Android secret pattern-based lock screen has released on the app store.
"There is a clear fascination with the android lock screen among some iOS users, with fake android lock screen apps appearing on the top charts of many iOS stores. As a former Android user, one of the funnest parts of the OS was the lock-screen. So I thought, why not make it even funner and make it an actual game." a Webback Services developer described.
The purpose of the game is to link together colours, similar to how you would unlock an android phone by dragging across the screen to form your secret pattern. Of course, the developers have added other elements such as combos, chains, and power-ups. This combination has created a highly addictive game.
The company also is also going against the trend of in-app purchases. The game does have a store, however the items in the store can only be bought with in-game currency, which are golden coins earned while playing the game.
"The current trend of in-app purchases is getting out of hand. Consumers should not be supporting games that want you to spend $1.99 to get a single virtual weapon."
Version 2.0 of the App has the following updates:
* Added a new level with an 8-bit theme
* Added 4 more tracks to the soundtrack
* Added a new power: pixels!
* Chain System added rewarding speed play
* Levels added in Arcade Mode. Higher levels increase the drop rate of coins, but the difficulty increases
* Cleaned up gameplay interface
* Fixed bugs
Pricing and Availability:
Arabian Tiles 2.0 is available for $0.99 USD from the App Store in the Arcade and Puzzle Game categories. The game supports the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
