[prMac.com] Toronto, Canada - Digital artist Peter Lacalamita has announced 123 POP 1.0, an addictive puzzle game for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. 123 POP is a fun game for all ages and involves exploding numbers as they fly around a gorgeously surreal environment that is populated by vortexes, rockets, magical stars and the occasional leaping whale.
Sound easy? But watch out for beasts that leap out of the ocean or vortexes that gobble up the numbers. Moreover, the numbers are all in motion, reacting to physics so you'll have to be quick to make a sequence. Your hope to reach the highscore is to enlist the help of rockets and magic stars.
The rockets are launched with a simple touch. When launched, your score is increased by any numbers your rocket collides with. The magical stars when touched, will pop any numbers in close range and add those numbers to your score. Kids won't even know they're learning to add numbers. Simple to play, hard to put down.
