Jamzu 1.21 is out! Two Player Same Device! Two Player WiFi!

I'm very happy to announce the update release of Jamzu 1.21. This update includes the highly requested Two Player Same Device feature, as well as the original Two Player Local Wi-Fi! It also includes an important fix for an issue with update installs in Jamzu 1.2

Jamzu 1.21 is available in the App Store for only $0.99

New Features:
- Two Player Same Device. Now you can play Jamzu with your friends and family with only one iPhone or iPod touch!
- Match play for both Single Player and Two Player Same Device games, with independent match point settings.
- Four saved games for each of Single Player, Two Player Same Device, and Two Player Local Wi-Fi.
- Independent player names for Single Player, Two Player Same Device, and Two Player Local Wi-Fi.

A Small Selection of iTunes Reviews for Jamzu

Highly polished strategy game ★★★★★
"I have several chess and go apps, and they are nice... BUT THIS is so much more because it doesn't try to emulate a board game, it makes use of the platform... the visual cues are top notch, and the game is well thought out."

This is one of the most original games I have played on my ipod! ★★★★★
"This game is like a mix between chess and checkers in every good way you can possibly think of..."

Solid app! ★★★★
Well, I just got this app today, and I have to say, I am thoroughly pleased... All in all, great app. Jamzu deserves a spot on your iphone"

Unsung Game ★★★★★
"I've never heard of Jamzu before, but this is one heck of a fun little strategy game..."

Fun board game ★★★★★
"Really unique game! Very strategic and fun... I haven't put it down since I got it 2 days ago..."

Great Game! ★★★★★
"We really are having fun with this game. It is used more than all the other games I have downloaded put together!"

Press Reviews for Jamzu:

AppStruck.com ★★★★½

“Great app to play alone or with friends ... makes me want to scream from the rooftops, “Bravo Jamzu!” ... As with many successfully designed apps, the features are so seamless and logical that it takes a moment to stand back and notice that this is exactly as it ought to be.”

LiveGeek.fr 14/20

“Les jeux de plateau sont transmis de génération en génération depuis des temps immémoriaux. On compte parmi les plus célèbres les échecs, les dames, le jeu de Go, les petits chevaux et Jamzu. Ah, on me souffle que Jamzu n'est apparu qu'en 1997 de l'imagination de Johanna Pessirilo et Doug Nicola, fondateurs du studio Real Fun Art et qu'il fait aujourd'hui l'objet d'une adaptation iPhone et iPod Touch...”
