[prMac.com] Berlin, Germany - Independent developer Mark Hessburg today released Newton's Dice HD for iPad on the App Store. No doubt, this is one of the most advanced dice games ever released for iOS. Like no other game of its genre, Newton's Dice HD uses 3D without making any compromises. The game's physics are powered by the same physics engine used by most 3rd person shooters on the PC.
The iPhone version, Newton's Dice 3D, was already a sensational dice app when it came out in 2010, now this game can be finally played on the large iPad screen and with the same improved graphics of the recently released 2.0 update of Newton's Dice 3D. What others said about Newton's Dice (iPhone Version 1.0):
"... The graphics are amazing. It's all clean, clear, and in 3D. ... It's clear that a lot of attention was paid to the aesthetic of this game. There are tons of dice game apps out there, I lost count at 20 in the iTunes store, and Mark Hessburg figured out a good way to set Newton's Dice apart from the bunch." - AppSafari
"This is a dice game that is so much fun you will want to play all night long." - PhoneWorld
Newton's Dice HD comes with 2 Games against AI or other Players and with 2 different styles in the Dice Simulator: The popular family game 'Dice 10000' (also called Farkle, Zilch, Foo, Boxcar, Bogus or Crap Out) and the classic pub game 'Shut the Box' (also called Tric-Trac, Canonga or Klackers).
