[prMac.com] Berlin, Germany - Visual Generation today is pleased to announce the release of their free version of "The Twiggles" for iPhone and iPod touch. Twiggles are little blue creatures that are lost in a strange world. To help them find their way back home, the player has to build bridges, dig tunnels, place trampolines and blow up obstacles. The free version includes the first 6 levels of the game.
"The Twiggles" was release on May 6th for $2.99. The game has entered the strategy games Top 100 in every major market. The little blue creatures enjoy the greatest popularity in the United Kingdom, reaching a peak rank of #5.
"It's fascinating to see how emotionally involved people are when they play the game," says Heiko Weible, developer of the Twiggles, "These bouncing creatures become their little babies. The effect they have on people, even on myself, is truly amazing. When testing a new piece of code, I always catch myself placing a few extra bridges and trampolines, just to make sure no Twiggle is hurt."
In the game, the player can always turn back time if something didn't work out right. While holding down the rewind button, time will run backwards until the player releases the button. "As a developer, that's one of my favorite features," says Heiko Weible, "I always wanted to create a game where I can manipulate time".
