[prMac.com] Bend, Oregon - Rebel Drone, LLC today is thrilled to announce the availability of their first original game for the iOS platform: Boneyard. Taking elements from traditional Domino games, Mahjong, and sliding tile style puzzles, Boneyard is an original matching game played with dominos where players attempt to achieve the highest possible scores by matching and removing the tiles from the play field.
Players are allowed to slide tiles into empty spaces and rotate tiles around their center to create runs of matched tiles for scoring. Identifying and scoring tiles quicker will earn players higher multipliers and higher end game scores. The game can be played using any of Double 6, Double 9, Double 12, Double 15 or Double 18 domino sets, with the difficulty and scoring potential increasing as the set size increases.
"The driving goal for Boneyard from day one was to create a compelling, fun game that is completely original, but maintains a solid link with the games that influenced its design. In this way the game feels both new and still familiar the first time you pick it up," said CEO Matthew Overlund.
Rebel Drone chose to integrate OpenFeint to provide Boneyard's achievements, leaderboards, and the ability for players to exchange challenges with their friends. OpenFeint also provides support for offline achievements and integrated Game Center synchronization, all in a polished interface that is familiar to gamers across multiple platforms.
