[prMac.com] Melbourne, Australia - Hydrix today is proud to present Roto, a new and original solitaire game for iPhone and iPod Touch. Roto is a challenging and addictive game developed by international best seller Dr. Reiner Knizia. Dr Knizia is best known for his critically acclaimed and hugely popular board games, however Roto was designed from the ground up for the iPhone.
The rules are simple so anyone can play, but mastering all the challenges and planning ahead to use the best possible combinations is harder than it may seem. A new game, a new challenge, it's never the same. Roto can be used whenever you feel like playing or passing time. You can pause and resume whenever it suits you. Disclaimer: once hooked, people have reported games lasting well over 40 minutes.
* 3 game plays: Puzzle, Arcade and Action
* Statistical analysis of your last game
* Pause and Resume
* Global scoring system - compare your results with all other iPhone players
* Colour-blind mode
* English, French and German
* Roto requires an iPhone or iPod Touch with OS 2.0 or later
What some early players have to say:
Karen E. "I can't wait to play it (it is so addictive!!!!)." Francois A. "I've lost, I can't do anymore" Reiner K. "I have played the game for about 5 hours. I like all three play modes!" Gerald S.: "A revolution in match-3 games!"
