Math SteelCave Challenge: Math in Space

No Comments

Barcelona, Spain – Titan Deep Space Company today is pleased to announce that Math SteelCave Challenge (MSCC), is now available for iPhone and iPad, and iPod touch. Developed with Metal API, MSCC is an educational and interactive 3D game that generates random math exercises In an infinite steel cave.

Achieving an interest in mathematics that reaches all ages is a primary goal for us. To that end, the company has developed a version of Math Combat Challenge specially designed for people aged nine years and older: Math SteelCave Challenge. This version is located inside a powerful starship, within an infinite steel cave in space, where various obstacles appear, and also some elements, such as enemy ships or drones, which will try to prevent us from resolving the mathematical exercises with calm. The player will have to aim the ship to the numbers and shoot the lasers, solving the static and dynamic random panels, from sums to equations.

Math for young and not so young:
Math SteelCave Challenge is designed especially at young people from the age of nine, and it is designed to be fun and challenging for all ages. We intend to create several modules with different possibilities and mathematical challenges, and this second module is specially inspired in space. If you want a game for children, we also have Math Classroom Challenge for kids aged 4 to 12.

The game allows you to set the type of operations to solve, and the maximum number of errors, or an unlimited number of errors. No violence has been added to the game, just explosions and effects that you can see in many scifi movies, with very quiet sounds and music.

Learn math and how to fly a starship:
The spacecraft has realistic inertia, and will allow the player to develop motor skills and real sense in a 3D space environment, having to maneuver carefully in order to correctly target the solutions, while avoiding being destroyed by surrounding objects, and the spacecraft and drones that will appear around them.

“Math SteelCave Challenge is available for iOS (iPhone/iPad), and we are considering publishing it for Windows and Mac if players are interested,” explained Ignacio Campomanes, developer at Titan Deep Space Company. “We started with mobile devices because these kinds of games can then take you everywhere, and enjoy mathematics anywhere. This environment is already included as a free scenario in Math Combat Challenge for Windows and Mac, so if you own that game, you have Math SteelCave Challenge for these operating systems. Mathematics for everyone.”

Device Requirements:
* iPhone 5s or later and iPod touch (6th generation)
* iPad Pro (2nd generation) or later
* Requires iOS 9.0 or later
* 751 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Math SteelCave Challenge 1.0 is only $1.99 USD (with no additional purchases or on-screen advertising) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Games category. For more information, please contact Ignacio Campomanes.

New Spatial Puzzle Carves a Slot in the iOS Game Market

No Comments

Oxford, United Kingdom – Indie developer, Sergey Anisimov today is proud to announce the release of Inangle 1.1, a puzzle game which aims to be the “digital successor” of the Rubik’s cube phenomenon. Currently only available for iOS systems, Inangle has been developed to provide first class puzzle fun in a way that is easy on the eye.

Clear, minimalistic and beautifully designed, Inangle uses strong colors and geometric shapes to test your logic. It is an app aimed at anyone who enjoys grappling with spatial riddles but who doesn’t want to be distracted by whistles and bells. The basic premise of Inangle is that users have to logically find the best way to move, arrange and untangle a series of basic geometric shapes, such as squares and triangles.

Interaction with the game comes from basic gestures, such as swipe or tap, which rotate and shuffle the pieces of the puzzle on the game board. Starting from either a shuffled or complete board, Inangle eases players into untangling or creating attractive spatial patterns. The gripping game then quickly escalates to new levels of complexity, providing players with the potential for many hours of satisfaction in solving tough challenges.

Inangle Highlights:
* Three difficulty levels
* Shuffled or complete board
* Clear colors
* Minimalistic interface

“I want Inangle to be the first true digital successor of the Rubik’s cube,” explained Sergey Anisimov, designer of Inangle. “There is well-documented evidence that puzzles can stimulate the brain, as well as creating a fun past time. The thinking behind Inangle is that a game can be pleasurable and easy on the eye, while at the same time challenging and gripping. Inangle uses a minimalistic design and a simple interface, to make it easy to use and enjoyable. It also offers plenty of interest and stimulation to keep players coming back for more. I feel one of the best advantages of Inangle is the limitless possibilities it offers. Unlike some game apps which can quickly become repetitive or limiting, Inangle offers you literally millions of amazing combinations. So, whether you like your puzzles easy or tough, Inangle will grip you.”

Language Support:
Inangle supports English, Spanish, French and Russian

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, iPad Pro and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 9.0 or later
* Optimized for the iPhone 5 through iPhone 8, the new iPhone X
* 19.3 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Inangle 1.1 is $1.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Games/Puzzles category. Promotional codes are available to members of the press. For more information, please contact Sergey Anisimov.

Dynamic Updates Made To Crazy Shapes: Run Adventure

No Comments

Dublin, Ireland – Leading mobile game developer, DP Space LP, has announced game-changing updates to its hugely popular App, Crazy Shapes: Run Adventure, introducing new features and an improved gaming experience.

Launched in 2017, Crazy Shapes: Run Adventure is a fun, complex and massively addictive running game. An intriguing and complex background story adds depth and interest to this fast paced game whereby players are tasked with controlling their hero, Cuebit, as he faces a number of obstacles on his way to activate the portal.

Initial features include the ability to change into other characters according to requirements, the collection of solar rewards, the use of power-ups and the chance to earn rewards at every level! A free platform game for every age, Crazy Shapes: Run Adventure challenges players to use their skill and coordination to jump over obstacles and change shapes in order to control movement and achieve the ultimate goal of activating every portal through a number of levels in order to defeat the enemy.

The game has 4 main characters. Each of them has its own unique abilities. You have to switch between heroes to pass the test. Here are the characters of the game:

* Cuebit is a born leader. Ability-a jump
* Fracto is a calm and focused character. Can decay into ions and reassemble
* Surger has explosive character. Can break hurdles and crush enemies
* Judger is cold-minded. Can shoot with a laser beam

Features:
* The game is suitable for all ages
* It contains a very complex background story
* The gameplay is smooth as is the game control
* Great graphics, sound effects, and music
* The app allows you to change the shapes into other characters or other shapes
* Use the power-ups to help you pass each of the levels

The company has made further developments and added new features in order to enhance user enjoyment. These developments include:

* A redesign of the control system of the game – updates to the control system means that users can now more easily control their character using just one hand for added convenience and comfort.

* New features – New obstacles have been added and, existing obstacles within the game have been refined and redefined adding new depth and challenge to the game.

* New processing of system boosters – additional boosters have been added to increase the game’s excitement.

The Boosters are:
* Magnet – allows you to collect solars throughout the level in the range of the booster, and not just those that directly “hurt” the character. Solars are attracted automatically to the hero throughout the level.

* Shield – gives protection to the player from all obstacles and enemies but this booster works only 2 times during the level.

* Slowdown – slows down the time when approaching the obstacle, if the hero had an activiviron character that does not match this obstacle, thus giving the player time to decide and select the right character before the hero comes into contact with the obstacle.

Also all boosters work throughout the level, you select them at the beginning, and then they operate the entire level. Also all boosters can be used together – that is, you can choose everything at once for any level and pass the level much more fun and exciting (to add all boosters, you need to open additional cells). Boosters open during the game and are not immediately available.

Improved Training-Detailed tutorial for beginners to start playing the game easily. Developers added the possibility of resurrection on levels – for this you need either to look at the advertisement, or to spend a small amount of Solars, also redesigned the menu – adding the selection of boosters before the levels, added animated tutorials and how to do it. Other developmental changes include a number of bug fixes and an improved user interface.

The technical director, Denis Podolyak says “We get feedback from the players and continue to work on improving the gameplay, graphics and other important components of the game, so that players continue to enjoy the game.”

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 9.2 or later
* 188 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Crazy Shapes 1.1.4 is currently available for Free with in-app purchases on the App Store in the Games category.

24U releases 24U SimpleSound Plug-In 4.1 for FileMaker Pro 16

No Comments

Prague, Czech Republic – 24U Software has released its new version 4.1 of 24U SimpleSound Plug-In. This plug-in enables FileMaker Pro to play back audio in the background, without blocking the user interface, and manipulate ID3 metadata in the MP3 audio files, enabling any FileMaker database to serve as fully functional jukebox and music library at once.

The new version adds 64-bit compatibility with FileMaker Pro 14, 15, and 16, completely rewritten audio playback engine takes full advantage of the native audio formats supported by the host platform, and ID3 metadata support has been extended both to support wider range of ID3 tags, including lyrics and artworks, and to work on FileMaker Server as a server-side plug-in. 24U SimpleSound Plug-In allows FileMaker Pro developers to:

* Play back audio files stored on the user’s hard drive
* Play back audio files stored in container fields
* Use sound effects to make their solutions more accessible
* Pause and resume sound playback or start from specific offset
* Examine sound file’s information, such as length, file format, sampling rate, etc.
* Read MP3 file’s ID3 metadata, such as artist, album, or year of publishing
* Modify MP3 file’s ID3 metadata to fix or add missing information
* Set analog outputs to control electronic equipment

Sample uses of 24U SimpleSound Plug-In:
Existing customers use 24U SimpleSound Plug-in for a wide range of applications, including music licensing and copyright management, music production, sound-enabled inventory systems, audio notes sorting, or even phoniatric examination.

Michael Lau, COO of Round Hill Music depends on SimpleSound to efficiently organize thousands of audio files his company manages distribution rights for: “I have used 24uSoftware’s SimpeSound plugin in my music publishing creative solution since its inception. Throughout the years, the team at 24U has not only provided an outstanding plugin, but support to back it up. I have not found another developer that understands and empathizes with achieving the end result in an efficient and effective manner.”

The new version of 24U SimpleSound Plug-In has been improved to provide the following new features and more:

* 64-bit version fully compatible with FileMaker Pro 14, 15, and 16
* Playback engine completely rewritten allowing to use any OS-supported sound format
* Extended ID3 tags support to let user organize even more information about MP3 files
* Server-side ID3 manipulation for implementing better audio management workflows
* Improved registration process for seamless deployment in multi-user solutions

Benefits of the new features:
By being able to read and manipulate most of ID3 tags in MP3 files lets FileMaker developers create custom apps to manage music and audio archives without having to deal with other apps for metadata extraction.

The addition of artworks and lyrics support in ID3 manipulation features makes it possible to use FileMaker Pro as a fully functional music library and jukebox in one.

Manipulating ID3 tags from a server-side script running on FileMaker Server enables the FileMaker platform to be used as a powerful multi-user music and audio library organization tool with centralized audio data storage.

System Requirements and Compatibility:
24U SimpleSound Plug-In 4.1 requires OS X 10.10 Yosemite or newer and FileMaker Pro 13 or newer. Recommended is macOS 10.10 Sierra and FileMaker Pro 16 Advanced.

Windows 7 and FileMaker Pro 13 are minimum requirements for using the plug-in on the Windows platform. Windows 10 and FileMaker Pro 16 Advanced are recommended.

Pricing and Availability:
24U SimpleSound Plug-In 4.1 is immediately available for download free of charge as a fully functional 14-days trial version, which can be activated after purchasing a license code. Licenses for 24U SimpleSound Plug-In start at $49 per user, volume discounts are available for 5 or more users. Server licenses start at $499 (USD), discounted when buying for 2 or more servers.
