[prMac.com] Marshall, Michigan - WickeyWare, the small indie game studio with a big hit, announced an unlocked version of the hit game Burst! During its initial release in late 2011, Burst! spent multiple weeks in the top ten of multiple iTunes charts, and currently boasts over 400,000 downloads and 120,000 players on Apple's Game Center.
Burst! tells the story of young Chester who one day awakens to find the skies of his simple world filled with colorful balloons. On investigating, he discovers that these balloons are not as innocent as they appear. Chester must use the special weapons he finds along the way to clear his skies in pursuit of the dark villain Lyndon and his mysterious motives.
"We wanted to bring Burst! to a larger audience and to reward players who love the game," says Tim Wickey of WickeyWare, " We think Kiip makes an excellent addition to Burst!" Burst! Unlocked comes integrated with the Kiip awards system where players earn real rewards for in-game achievements. Burst players actually can redeem real prizes for solving puzzles and advancing in the game.
Burst is a puzzle-styled action-adventure with complete 2D physics simulation. Arrows can be launched with the games signature swipe gesture, or with the more traditional pull-back-to-shoot method. There are six map packs and 120 levels. As Chester advances, there are special arrows - including and ice arrow, fire arrow and, radar arrow - and new opportunities to improve his score. He has unlimited regular arrows available to him, but the less he uses, the better his score and the more bursts he receives.
