[prMac.com] Toronto, Canada - zinc Roe announced the release of its first game for the iPhone and iPod touch. Arctic Shuffle is available for purchase on Apple's iTunes App Store. Arctic Shuffle is a great little arcade puzzle game. Start with ice curling, then mix in some mini-golf, exploding penguins and cloning devices and you have an idea of what the game play is all about.
To play, just aim and fire your penguin pal trying to land him on the target. Look out for obstacles that block, bounce, drown and destroy your precious penguin. Players must complete each level before they can progress to the next level. With just 5 penguins to complete each level, the game play quickly gets more and more challenging.
Arctic Shuffle features great artwork from Trevor Van Meter and original music by Brian McBrearty. zinc Roe is excited by the initial positive response to the game and is in active development on updates as well as new titles.
Pricing and Availability:
Arctic Shuffle 1.1 for iPhone is only $2.99 (USD) and available exclusively through Apple's App Store. The full version of Arctic Shuffle includes over 70 levels. A free trial version is also available under the title Arctic Shuffle Lite.
