[prMac.com] New York, New York - Appular announces the long-awaited release of Push Panic Free, the newest variation of their exhilarating color-matching puzzle game. With 15 new levels, players can get a taste of this wildly popular iOS title as they tap and push the chromatic combinations off the screen in a race against the pulsating panic bar.
Push Panic Free delivers an intense and unique challenge in its action-packed gameplay. Players create explosive color-coded combinations by tapping the boxes to push the groupings off-screen before the vibrant squares reach the red panic bar. Random power-ups include chain-links to combine multiple color strings, point multipliers, time freezes, bombs, and an arrow block that pushes the panic bar when players need a quick breather.
"The current version of Push Panic, now with 75 levels and 4 distinct game modes, offers tons of value and gameplay for $1.99," says Barry Kostjens, developer of Push Panic. "I feel Push Panic Free will play an integral role in communicating this value to users and allow them to give it a try, completely risk free. Back in January we made Push Panic free of charge for one day only and received an amazing 137,000 downloads, I'm excited to see what a permanent free version will garner."
About Barry Kostjens and Ricardo de Zoete:
Barry Kostjens, Appular's development partner on Push Panic, is an independent developer for iOS apps from the Netherlands. Prior to developing Push Panic, Barry developed iGangster, his first game for the iPhone platform, which was also featured by Apple. The success of iGangster seeded Barry's dedication to learning more about Objective-C and coding, paving the way for the birth of Push Panic. In desperate need of a sophisticated graphics designer for Push Panic, Barry began searching on iPhone forums, where he found Ricardo de Zoete, who had the skills and knowledge in GFX to render the stunning graphics of Push Panic. Though the duo never met in person, they have joined together in a dynamic team to develop quality apps that paves the way for further creative innovations.
