----------------------------------------
Selected as part of the "Top 10 Great Board Games Vol. 2" CD released by Global Star Software, Jamzu was the only modern board game included in this collection, alongside such classics as chess, checkers and backgammon.

Jamzu is an original game of skill and chance, full of quick changes and fast-moving strategy. Jamzu is easy to learn and fun to play. Match wits against the computer on four difficulty levels, or play against your friends on the same device or over a Local Wi-Fi network.

COOL THINGS IN THE JAMZU UI:

- To change skins, tap the arrow in the lower right at any time during a game.
- The Squares/Blocks display shows the number of squares the runners have left to go, and the number of blocks in front of the runners. This display looks like 47/9, and gives you a quick view of how far ahead or behind you are in the race.
- Speed can be changed in Settings. This controls how fast each move is made. Using Slow speed is a great way to learn how jammers move.

DougNicola's comments:


I'm very happy to announce the release of our first game for the iPhone, Jamzu, now available in the app store. We've also got Jamzu Free submitted to the app store, and are working on some demo vids.



A bit of backstory: We first released Jamzu as a freeware game for the PC quite a while ago, with great success. After working on other projects for a time, we brought Jamzu back, just for the iPhone, completely new and updated. We are especially happy with the Two Player Wi-Fi mode, which is a total blast.



Cheers,
~Doug
