[prMac.com] Ponchatoula, LA - Announcing that Wil Richardson, the developer of PlingPlong, has just released the latest update for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. PlingPlong 2.2 is a maddeningly addictive game that's reminiscent of bumper pool. Users have a limited number of tries to fling the Plong (like a ball) at the stationary Plings (like a bumper) to light them up. The game is over when they light up all of the Plings, or run out Flings, but there's a catch. If they Plong a Pling twice, it deactivates; and they must use another Fling to re-light it.
Many unsuspecting users have already fallen prey to the addictive nature of this game. To add to the madness, users can save their high scores and check their global ranking on the worldwide leader board. Many users can't stop themselves from going back and trying to beat their old scores to improve their ranking. With 25 levels of play, each more difficult than the last, it could take a long time to finish a game. Fortunately, when the user leaves the app, PlingPlong 2.2 remembers where they left off and takes them back to that level when they return.
PlingPlong 2.2 features include:
* 25 levels of increasingly difficulty, pulse-pounding play
* Online leader board to monitor progress
* Last level game recall to continue toward mastering the Plings
* Bonus points for using fewer moves
* Simple design
* User friendly controls
* Colorful graphics
* New and improved tutorial
The controls are easy to use, so players can focus on the game. All that is required is a simple swiping gesture to Fling the Plongs, and plenty of strategy and finesse.
* iPhone, iPod touch and iPad
* Requires iOS 3.0 or later
* 1.1 MB
Pricing and Availability:
PlingPlong 2.2 is only $0.99 (USD) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Games (Puzzle & Strategy) category. Promo codes are available for qualified reviewers. Please specify the website or blog you represent when making your request.
Wil Richardson's company consists of two brothers that grew up in the small town of Ponchatoula, LA. The brothers created PlingPlong for their friends and neighbors. The wild, local success of the game prompted them to share it with the app loving world. Copyright (C) 2010 Mobile-App-Marketing-Makeover & Edward Turner. All Rights Reserved.
