Beetle Trap: A Fun Puzzle Game that makes you Think, Focus and Remember

No Comments

New Albany, Ohio – Royal Tern Software, Inc. today is pleased to announce that Beetle Trap for iOS has become available worldwide, exclusively through the App Store in the Games Category. Beetle Trap is a free puzzle game for the iPhone, iPod and iPad. Every level of Beetle Trap begins with 15 Beetles arranged on a Game Board. Each time you play a move, a Beetle is removed from the Board.

The objective of the game is to play your moves in such a way that you end with a Game Board left with a particular number of Beetles as per the Challenge for the level. For example in the very first level, the Challenge is to end up with 3 Beetles on the Board. Each level has its own challenge with higher levels requiring you to also end up with particular Board positions for the Beetles to be left on the board.

The Game has only two types of moves. The first type of move is a double tap on a Beetle on the Game Board and is played exactly once as the first move of a new level. The Beetle on which you tapped twice will be removed from the Board making an empty space. The next type of move is played by moving a Beetle which is in the second position from an empty space into that empty space. You play this move many times until you have removed enough Beetles from the Board and are left with the exact number of Beetles for you to win the level or you do not have any further valid moves.

For an empty space there could be more than 1 Beetle that can move into that space and you need to choose the Beetle to move based on your strategy and that is where the Game gets interesting. A certain number of Beetles are added to your collection for a win. You can view your Beetle collection and compare your collection with your friends. Higher levels are more difficult but award more Beetles for a winning play.

Once you have mastered a level, you can try the Time Challenge mode where you have to complete your moves within two minutes and reach a winning position.

The Game has other fun features such as a Beetle Collection Gallery, Leaderboards and Achievements using which you can compare your scores with friends or challenge them to beat your Beetle Collection or scores. The Leaderboards provide various comparisons such as fastest completion times and scores for players from around the world.

San Diego, California – With media sources and bloggers raving about all of the deals for the upcoming Cyber Monday shopping day, iPhone and iPad users are counting down the hours for the release of the “Apps for Snaps” photo app bundle sale. News of the sale was revealed early last week.

The brainchild of photo app wizards Pixite, “Apps for Snaps” features eight of the industry’s top photo enhancement and management apps. The sale begins at midnight on Cyber Monday, December 2nd and runs for twenty-four hours.

No Comments

Newcastle, Australia – Sublime Apps today is proud to announce Greeting Cards App – Pro eCards 1.5 for iOS, which gives users a full library of ready-to-go cards and the ability to customize their own.

The holiday card tradition is a time consuming tradition that many put lots of time and money into every year. It happens every year after Thanksgiving: the tradition of sitting down and writing out personal cards (or just addressing envelopes and signing them all), placing a stamp on the corner, running out to the mailbox, and feeling that satisfied sense of accomplishment. One more thing off the holiday tradition list! “We’ve all faced it: We want to send out holiday cards, but never get around to it,” said Adrian Bisegna, CEO of Sublime Applications. “We’ve taken e-cards and brought them to the next level with greater customizability, and the ability to share customized holiday wishes instantly on multiple social media outlets.”

But surely once at a holiday party at work or with family, an embarrassed feeling will wash over the sender and realize that they forgot a pivotal person, or when opening the mailbox and receiving those wonderful cards back, someone from the past or a new friend will no doubt have taken the time to select, write out, and stamp a card for the recipient as well. How can this be remedied? Especially if it is the day before a holiday where the mail will not be sent the next day? This sounds over dramatized, but it is embarrassing to realize that someone was left off a list and they put you on theirs. On top of that, holiday cards are more and more expensive every year, and the cost of sending a letter increases with it.

This is where Greeting Cards App -Pro eCards, by Sublime Applications pty limited, makes an easy solution to these expensive and often time-consuming rituals. There is an easy solution to these stressful holiday issues, and that is using eCards. A one-time fee for downloading the app, just $2.99, means access to a library of greeting cards for all sorts of occasions and peace of mind through the holiday season, and to make it even more exciting, Sublime Applications is holding a Christmas Giveaway competition. With that cost, the equivalent of paying $2.99 would be sending six cards, it takes the monetary inconvenience out of the equation for users (plus removes the trip of running to the Postal Office). These can be linked to the user’s Facebook, increasing the share-ability and lessening the chance of missing someone pivotal on the list.

Sublime Application’s exciting new Christmas competition is easy to enter. Simply download the app before December 15, follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and share with your friends, and get a chance to win a brand new, 32GB iPod touch.

Included in the library of cards are free options for everything from birthdays, to Christmas, Weddings, New Years, Anniversaries, Easter, and more. There are options for animated and custom cards as well, for when the extra mile is needed, or when the sender wants to be a little more involved in the personalization process.

Those who might be new to eCards may want to know that eCards are delivered immediately, so when the sender is ready to send them out, the recipient will know that they were just on the sender’s mind. Those who think that eCards are less personal than handwritten cards have overlooked the fact that it allows the recipient to know that the person was thinking about them at a time-stamped time. The cards can also be sent over Facebook as well, so that others can see the card selected specifically for the person. It also means that if someone was forgotten, it means that as soon as the sender remembers, they can simply go to their iPhone and open the app, and send them a card.
