[prMac.com] Budapest, Hungary - KAMPO Interactive today announces the Mac release of Balance, a tilt puzzle game that can be played by simply tilting a laptop. Besides the mouse and trackpad, the game can make use of the accelerometers built into all Apple notebooks, including the various MacBook, PowerBook and iBook models. Players are invited to test the demo on Mac or PC and watch videos on how this works on various platforms at the game's website.
Balance requires both puzzle solving and hand-eye coordination skills without any time pressure as players tilt the playfield to guide one or more balls between various 3D obstacles to their destinations. The game has 75 levels that are continuously expanded by downloadable level upgrades. Players can share their best times over the internet along with recordings of their sessions for others to watch.
Balance is also coming for the iPhone as well as other accelerometer embedded devices shortly.
Motion sensors are widely used in today's notebooks to sense when the machine is dropped to protect their hard disks. Balance currently supports all Apple notebooks and certain Lenovo ThinkPad and Toshiba models with embedded accelerometers. Visit the game's website for up to date information about device support.
