[prMac.com] Stevenage, United Kingdom - Apptronics today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of Ping Me 1.01, their new game for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices. This game lets players create a universe of unimaginable secrets, right at their fingertips. Apptronics has provided 3 fully designed Demo Levels or themes, 1 in Hilly, 1 in Snowy, and 1 in Space that show players a lot of the ideas that are available in Ping Me, but there's more to be created.
Players can use these as templates to help them get started, or they can start from scratch on their own if they think they've got the skills. Each of the different themes provides different objects to work with, so there will always be something new to make. They can try out each theme and discover the gems within them.
* Create, Play, and Online Mode
* 3 Unique Themes
* Hundreds of Objects
* Powerful Toolkit
Create Mode provides a vast, in-depth area, that allows players to simply and easily craft complex levels to their hearts content. They can spend 5 minutes building a challenging level, or endless hours hand-crafting the most breath-taking, heart-stopping and jaw-dropping levels they can possibly imagine.
Play Mode gives players the chance to play their own levels, as well as explore all the hidden depths of the levels they download online. Using the Snapshot Feature, they can take pictures along the way and document their wild adventures.
Online Mode enables players to get involved with the Ping Me Community. They can upload their own levels, so the whole world can enjoy their creative genius. To download, they can search the levels using a few different options: Top Charts, Newest Levels, Themes, or Search. This is their chance to see if they could make it in the level designing business. Players will earn coins for every level they upload and also every time someone downloads your level, so that those who build the best levels possible can reach #1 on the Top Charts list.
Players have the option to create their levels with hundreds of different Objects. They'll get to choose from things such as: Boulders, Bridges, Platforms, Enemies, Finish Lines, Checkpoints, and lots more. Some of the objects have different physics attached to them as well. So, players will be able to do make boulders roll down hills and smash into loads of crates, construct walls of planks, stronger than anything on earth, that can never be broken, rotate crumbling platforms, which dangle high above deadly spikes and traps, and create beautiful greenery to rival the Gardens of Babylon.
Ping Me has a Powerful Toolkit that allows players to complete complex ideas with ease. With tools like Multi Object Select, Screen Lock, Object Lock, Copy Up/Down/Left/Right, and Test Level, creating levels becomes a breeze. Players will become a master Game Designer in no time.
Apptronics has included Tooltips in the Create Mode to help players navigate to begin with. If they need any help, they can just turn on Tooltips (by pressing the Tooltip Tool), and then press any Category, Object, or Tool, and a Tooltip will be displayed explaining to them, what it does. They can turn tooltips off again, just by pressing the Tooltip Tool.
"Get ready to spend hours travelling through uncharted hills, tunnelling through the frozen peaks, and pioneering the untouched black vortexes of the Universe," said Rob Clements of Apptronics. "The whole world is waiting for you to play their levels. Design and Build your own, so you can join in too!"
