App description: Three rings each containing eighteen objects give a total of 48. Confused? That is just the beginning of the challenge!

Start with the 48 objects of different colors distributed randomly throughout the three rings. Rotate any of the rings one position at a time in either direction to rearrange the objects. The aim is to rearrange the objects to match the target solution, which can be easily viewed at any time while playing.

Sounds simple right? Not quite... every ring has four of its objects in common with the other two rings meaning that rotating one ring will always affect the objects in the other two. So rise to the challenge and keep your brain at the top of its game!

trAnelli is a game of careful strategy and thinking. There is no timer so no cause for hurry. If you leave the game in the middle of a level you will find the game in exactly the same state when you return so you can pick it up and play whenever you have a spare moment. The only goal is to complete the level so you can take as long as you like and as many moves as you want!

trAnelli has seven levels and seven stunning graphical themes to keep things even more interesting. The levels start off nice and easy and gradually increase in difficulty, but since the objects are shuffled differently, every time you start a level the challenge is different! The themes change the background graphics as well as the objects in the rings.

More levels and themes will be released as updates in the future.

Have fun!

and Lite version: http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=331492659&mt=8

Created by a collaboration formed right here on TouchArcade! Italian Alberto Schiavoni had an idea for a game and the required artistic skill but needed a programmer. He posted on TouchArcade that he was looking for a developer and New Zealander Mike Newton answered his call!

What was created in the months following was a challenging game of patience that will test the hardiest of puzzle fanatics. The game features three rings each containing 18 round objects. Each ring is intertwined with the other two rings such that a rotation of one ring will affect all rings. Altogether there are 48 objects in play, hence the name.

Each of the seven levels (more to come as updates) has a target solution that must be matched by rearranging all of the objects. Complete the level and unlock the next! Every time you replay a level the objects are shuffled in a different way so every time you play is a different challenge.

Furthermore the game includes seven (again, more to come as updates) delightful graphical themes which allow you to change the background and object graphics to your liking.

With 48 the challenge is in completing the puzzle, there is no time limit and you are encouraged to take your time and think about the best way to approach the puzzle. We hope you enjoy taking on the challenge as much as we have enjoyed bringing it to you!

A free lite version is also available, it includes the first two levels and two of the themes.

Great game. Incredibly challenging!

Looks like a ring version of the Rubik's cube, but with many more possibilities

Why does that happen?

I mean, the AppStore is available in certain Countries, and not all the Apps are available in those countries?

Maybe it is just a question of time ...

Just now seeing anything about this. The screens look really nice. Any game play video, and why did not you not have anything about it in the upcoming games thread? Would really like to see this in action, looks like it could be a great puzzler.

Hi guys, thanks for showing interest in our game! We are hoping to get a video of gameplay out shortly but I should point out that our lite version has just now been approved so should be live on the store shortly!

This was kinda weird... According to iTunesConnect India was one of the countries included when ticking "Rest of world" but it obviously isn't working as it is supposed to so I have manually ticked all of those countries and you will see 48 is now available in India

The screenshots only show the later levels as they have more pretty colours. The earlier levels are much easier as they have less colours. By playing through the early levels a bit you can start to figure out the strategies needed to complete the more difficult levels
