[prMac.com] Littleton, Colorado - 21-6 Productions today announced Defense Net 1.0, a new iPhone game from the developers of the award winning titles Orbz and TubeTwist. Defense Net is a color matching game that puts the player in charge of defending our Solar System against alien attacks. Players earn points by capturing approaching missiles in the Defense Net and collapsing groups of adjacent colored cells.
Players use their finger to rotate the Defense Net and match incoming missiles with cells of the same color. Groups of 3 or more matching colors will collapse. If one of the columns fills up and reaches the outer ring, the player will be facing a game over situation and must thinking quickly to get things under control. There are five types of missiles to defend against include Speeders which travel much faster than normal missiles, Painters which will change the color of the cell they hit, and Eliminators which collapse all cells of the same color.
"In 2002 we released our first puzzle game Cyclone." says 21-6 President, Justin Mette. "Our publisher at the time talked us out of a sci-fi theme and the game lost a lot of its heart. Seven years later, we are excited to bring back the original game on our own terms and have found the touch screen interface of the iPhone to be a perfect fit!"
21-6 Productions will continue to build on Defense Net with future updates that include new game modes, new locations to defend, new missile and cell types, as well as support for community leader boards and achievements.
* iPhone or iPod Touch 2.0 or later
Pricing and Availability:
Defense Net is available for $0.99 USD exclusively through the App Store in the Games category. A free "lite" version of the game is also available.
