[prMac.com] Nashville, Tennessee - Match-3 games have been around for a while, and for good reason. They're quite popular.
Curious Idea, a brand new indie mobile game company out of Nashville, TN, is excited to announce that their debut game, "Syntax!", has gone free for a limited time.
"Syntax!" is the newest and most exciting match-3 puzzle game to hit the iPhone. And while you may think that you have had your fill of all things match-3, be assured, this is not your ordinary match-3 game. With constant action-surprises, stunning graphics, and unique power-ups and matching moves, thousands of match-3 fans have already discovered a new favorite.
"Syntax!" is match-3 re-imagined. iPhone gamers who are big fans of puzzle and strategy games will really appreciate the extra challenging situations encountered in tricky, shape-shifting symbols, surprising hidden symbols, and the ultra-hard to eliminate corrupted symbol.
Counter these tricky challenges with power-filled surprises like the Wildcard symbol (can change it into any other symbol at will), the Super Symbol (one of the only 2 ways to eliminate the corrupted symbol), and a killer seven song soundtrack of original music, and it's as if you're playing on a match-3 battlefield!
In fact, one of the best features of "Syntax!" is it's "Engage" mode, a split-screen multiplayer mode via Apple Game Center, that allows you to face off against an opponent, all while watching their moves in real time.
The developers of "Syntax!" have successfully combined the match-3 concept with the look, feel, and action of "Tron." Puzzle games will never be the same.
Curious Idea's "Syntax!" is a testament to the future of small business, and the empowerment of the modern entrepreneur. With over a billion smartphones in the marketplace today, the mobile industry is one that is growing at an astonishing rate. With a laptop, iPhone, and an internet connection it's possible to go from idea to App Store in a matter of months, climbing the charts to success. This unique time of unprecedented innovation has lowered the barrier to entry in the mobile marketplace, empowering every visionary to leverage tomorrow's technology, and launch a profoundly sophisticated business, literally in the palm of their hand.
