[prMac.com] Roseville, Minnesota - Howling Moon Software has released ScribBall, their arcade game for iPhone and iPod Touch. ScribBall is an arcade/puzzle game with all of the addictive fun of the Mac version. The simple touch controls and realistic physics make for an easy-to-learn and intuitive game. Furthermore, ScribBall makes full use of the tilt feature, so as you move your iPhone or iPod from side to side, the balls will tumble and roll just like you'd expect.
When a group of four colored balls touch, they will pop and an avalanche of new balls will tumble in to take their place. Quickly and strategically tap out a few balls to set up the next match even before they settle into place. If your fingers are swift enough, you'll add to an ever growing combo. This requires a bit of planning as every tap brings you closer to game over.
* Realistic physics - balls tumble and roll as they fall
* Easy to pick up addictive gameplay
* Change the direction the balls fall by tilting your iPhone
* Fun hand-drawn graphics
ScribBall for the iPhone is based off the Mac game of the same name. "Developing for the iPhone really challenged us to redesign our game, and we're really pleased with how we changed our gameplay to make the most of the features of the iPhone, and still working within the limitations of the small screen and processing power. In the end, I think ScribBall is more fun than ever!" said co-founder Andy Korth.
Pricing and Availability:
ScribBall is only $3.99 (USD) and available exclusively through Apple's App Store. ScribBall works with iPhone 3G, the original iPhone, and iPod touch.
