[prMac.com] Benevento, Italy - SpinVector, the Italian developer behind the critically acclaimed, multiple award-winning Bang! the Official Videogame and AXL: Full Boost broadens its presence on the mobile market with From Cheese 1.3.0, a game about the struggle of a chubby mouse to save its starving colony from the cruel intentions of a mad-scientist kid.
The game is now available on the App Store (iPhone and iPad universal) and the Mac App Store. Grand Prize-winning From Cheese is a super-cute game with a unique, reverse logic gameplay: the player draws a scent-trail from a piece of cheese to a chubby mouse, then the mouse will smell the trail and follow it all the way backwards to the cheese.
The game is so easy to learn that it doesn't even feature any explanatory text: you use your finger (or pointer) to draw the path from the cheese, then press the "play" button and the mouse starts following the trail from its end: so, if there's a door that is opened by a button, the mouse must walk over the button and then through the door; but this means that the player will have to draw the path through the door first, then over the button, because the mouse will start from the other end of the trail.
This clever, award-winning gameplay gets very complex as new elements are added to the mazes: vacuum cleaners that will suck the trail, angry cats that will jump above walls, barking dogs able to "freeze" the cats and evil rats trying to pursue the same cheese you desperately need.
An exclusive feature for a puzzler is the continuous undo system: when you draw the scent-trail, you use a certain amount of "scent" that is shown in a "scent-bar" - simply drag your finger (or pointer) along the bar to pin-point your undo at any given particle of the trail. Smart and comfy.
With 50+ mind-twisting levels, nicely drawn interludes and a jazzy soundtrack, From Cheese is ready-fun for any player: casual gamers will enjoy the quick play; experienced puzzler will need all their efforts to try and get the three stars and the golden clock in all levels.
"I'm amazed by the results we've got in terms of awards, critics and, more importantly, user-reviews for our games." said Giovanni Caturano, CEO of SpinVector and From Cheese designer "it's a tremendous thrust to push forward, improve our existing titles and make better and better games to match the players request for innovative and satisfying gaming experiences. Thanks to the hundreds of thousands of gamers who enjoy our games!"
