[prMac.com] Flensburg, Germany - Stefan Preuss today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of AcChen for Apple's OS X operation system. AcChen is a simple to learn, arcade style 'find the matching tile' type of game. The easy rules makes AcChen a great game for all ages and the whole family. Play 60 different maps and 12 bonus level. Enjoy finding matches by playing the 'chill-mode'. No timer, no score, no pressure just happy tile hunting. Compete against the clock and unlock new maps in the 'Arcade Mode'.
Clear the board by finding two items with identical symbols. The tiles will disappear when you can 'connect' them with a line, which has two or less corners (right angles) in it and no other part is blocking the way. Advance to the next level by clearing the board. If you run out of time before you finish a map, you lose.
A map can contain tiles in up to 3 layers. You might combine tiles from different layers. If you pick one tile from the top layer and one from the bottom layer, only tiles on the top layer block the way.
In general: if you pick items from different layers, the upper most selected items layer is used for the search algorithm. Sounds difficult but if you give it a try, you will figure in no time...
Tiles with the same symbol might be located on top of each other. So the fastest pick is not always the best.
Every 5th level you play is a bonus level. You start with 4 tiles and have to fill up the map. Every time you remove a pair, 4 new tiles will appear. If you manage to fill up the whole map, you receive a 100 point bonus. If the time runs out, you advance to the next level. After finishing a bonus level you receive an extra Hint-Item.
