3 Shapes Puts Unique Twist Old Fashioned Matching Games

No Comments

Dublin, California – Matching game fans who are bored of the same old routine, can now look forward to hour after hour of mind-bending fun – while they boost their creativity and concentration skills – by downloading the unique and delightfully addictive new game 3 Shapes. The game is available for both iOS and Android, and available at no cost.

Created by Jottry LLC, 3 Shapes 2.1.0 is simple to understand, but tough to master. Users must join similar shapes (circles, squares, triangles) in order to create a closed loop, which clears them from the grid. Early levels are enjoyable and reasonably challenging, while higher levels oblige users to think ahead – both because there are fewer similar shapes to connect, and because the grid shape itself changes. There are currently 90 unique levels to complete, with more on the way.

What’s more, users can reach each level’s target score in fewer moves – and therefore boost their own personal score – by trapping special shapes (which look like mini light bulbs) within their closed loop. They can also unleash ice, fire and stone icons to help them make it through levels.

Other 3 Shape special features include:
* Unique stages to explore, including wacky green woods, dangerous sea waters and desert mania
* Boosters including shuffle and erase
* Sharp, colorful graphics and outstanding sound
* Clear, easy-to-see counters below each game grid that show total moves, score, and target score (i.e. the score that must be achieved to get to the next level)
* The ability to connect to Facebook and sync scores across devices

“The best games in life, whether playing a board game, computer game or mobile game, are the ones that we can’t wait to play again and again,” commented a spokesperson from Jottry LLC. “That’s the vision we have for 3 Shapes, and based on the very positive feedback we’ve received for far from users around the world, we’re definitely on the right track! It’s fun, addictive, challenging, and a totally unique twist on old fashioned matching games!”

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 8.1 or later
* 25.4 MB

Pricing and Availability:
3 Shapes 2.1.0 is Free and available worldwide through the App Store in the Games category. There is also an Android version available on Google Play.

Guru Arcade releases Pop Rocket Rescue – Interplanetary Stacking Puzzler

No Comments

Toronto, Canada – Friends stick together when the odds are stacked against them. Few mobile games take that as literally as Pop Rocket Rescue, available today on the App Store and Google Play. The latest mobile release from Guru Arcade, Pop Rocket Rescue is a strategic stacking puzzler where players are tasked with rescuing Fizzies, a species of soda pop-producing aliens scattered across 13 uniquely challenging worlds.

Guru Arcade is the interactive division of Guru Studio, the internationally renowned entertainment company behind such fun family TV hits as Justin Time and PAW Patrol. “Guru Arcade grew from our ability to make great characters, stories, and animation, which are also the foundation of great games,” said Mary Bredin, EVP Content and Strategy for Guru Studio.

Building from Guru Arcade’s success with kid-friendly entertainment, Pop Rocket Rescue is pursuing a slightly older crowd. “While kids will be able to enjoy the colorful planets and puzzles presented in earlier levels, the challenge ramps up fairly quickly in Pop Rocket Rescue,” adds Game Designer Alex Larsen. “We like to think that this is a well-crafted puzzler for players who love a challenge.”

Pop Rocket Rescue features include:
* Balance-based gameplay: Build a tower using different shapes, but don’t let it fall! You’ll need to contend with gravity as you try to build in a way that keeps your friends safe.

* 8 special Fizzies with their own powers: From the sticky blocks of ‘Gloop’ to the explosive personality of ‘Cherry Boom!,’ there’s a Fizzie for every situation.

* Head-scratching puzzles: Every stranded Fizzie needs your help, but there are only so many pieces to use and directions to go before you tumble and topple. Can you outsmart each stage?

* 80 Levels spread across 13 worlds: Defend your tower from incoming meteors in the Smashteroid Belt, blow up debris to make room for your towers in Junkyard Boom, and use Gloop’s sticky syrup to get through a Sticky Situation!

In addition to today’s release of Pop Rocket Rescue, Guru Arcade has commissioned a study to learn more about the habits of mobile gamers and has published the findings. Highlights include how many games the average mobile gamer has installed, which room of the house they most frequently play in (surprise – it’s not the bathroom!), and what percentage of players have seen their mobile fun get them in trouble. You can view an infographic summarizing the study’s results linked below.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 7.0 or later
* 184 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Pop Rocket Rescue 1.0 is Free and available worldwide through the App Store in the Games category. There is also an Android version available on Google Play. For more information, download the Pop Rocket Rescue press kit or visit the Pop Rocket Rescue website.

Chicago, Illinois – Davka Corporation today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of Ready for Rashi, an iOS app that teaches students how to read Rashi script, the semi-cursive Hebrew typeface. The script is used to display the commentary of Rashi, the preeminent 11th century Bible and Talmud commentator, as well as those of many other Bible and Talmud commentators. Reading Rashi script is an essential skill for serious students of the Bible and Talmud, who need to refer to the original commentaries.

Ready for Rashi was developed by a Jewish educator who has had years of experience in teaching this skill, and combines color, sound, and review exercises to teach Rashi script in four lessons. Each lesson includes clear explanations, diagrams, games and drills to enhance the learning process. The app first teaches Rashi letters that are similar to standard Hebrew letters, progresses to teaching those letters that differ significantly in appearance from standard Hebrew letters, and shows how to differentiate between similar-looking Rashi letters. It teaches two selections from Rashi’s Bible commentary on Genesis to apply reading skills to the actual Rashi text. Ready for Rashi also includes a biographical section that describes the life of Rashi, and his accomplishments and importance in the world of Bible commentary.
