[prMac.com] Longarone, Italy - Announcing that Frame Studios S.r.l., the developers of Springboard Circus, has released its inaugural product offering for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. The application is the first iDevice game created by a long-standing Nintendo and XBLA/PSN developer. Simplistic in concept, easy to use, fun and addictive, the Springboard Circus game is suitable for kids and adults, alike. Springboard Circus is just the beginning in a line of family friendly products that the Frame Studios team is now dedicating itself to.
Frame Studios has an impressive background from which to draw expertise in developing iPhone applications. The company is comprised of a team of talented individuals who have created and developed video games for personal computers and Nintendo platforms, from the Gameboy Advance to the DS to Wii. They've pretty much done it all where games are concerned and they continue to work with some of the most famous brands on television today.
iDevice users reap the benefits of all this experience in the company's first release from a line of planned products. Springboard Circus is the debut app from Frame Studios, offering lots of simple yet addictive fun that the whole family can enjoy.
The game features a cute little clown who bounces around, trying to get to the top. It is the user's job to quickly draw a line on the screen with their finger, which provides the clown with a trampoline to jump up to the next object on the screen. Naturally, timing and placement is everything, as players try to beat their previous score and time. Each of the ten robust levels comes with a 'par' number to let users know how many jumps they're trying to meet or beat.
* Simply swipe finger in a line on screen to draw trampolines for the little clown to jump on
