The original PC version of Jamzu was included in the "Top 10 Great Board Games Vol. 2" released by Global Star Software, alongside such classics as backgammon, dominoes, mahjong, checkers and chess. Now Jamzu is back on the iPhone and iPod touch, and better than ever! Single Player, 2 Player Same Device & 2 Player Local WiFi!

----------------------------------------
DESCRIPTION

Race your runners across the board and block your opponent with the jammers. The jammers are both your allies and your enemies. Your advantage may turn against you at any time, but then you can counterattack right back!

Jamzu is an original game of skill and chance, full of quick changes and fast-moving strategy. It 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.

----------------------------------------
FEATURES

- Four difficulty levels for challenging Single Player fun.

- Awesome Two Player Same Device and Two Player Wi-Fi modes. Play game after addictive game with your friends and family on the same screen or on a local Wi-Fi network.

- Five fantastic skins.

- Helpful Hint makes learning Jamzu a snap.

- Great graphics, animation and sounds.

- Listen to your iPod music while playing Jamzu. Set volume of Jamzu independently.

- Auto save and reload.

- Save up to four games each in Single Player, Two Player Same Device or Two Player Wi-Fi mode.

- Match play and point settings for Single Player and Two Player Same Device games.

- Set player names independently by match, Single Player, Two Player Same Device or Two Player Wi-Fi modes.

----------------------------------------
COOL THINGS IN THE JAMZU UI:

- To change the skins, simply tap the arrow in the lower right at any time during a game.

- Use the Hint button in the upper left. Hint has been improved and fixed in Jamzu 1.30, and is now much more powerful. It is now possible to play an entire game in Expert, just using Hint, and win (but not every time). Using Hint, and studying the suggested moves, is a great way to learn Jamzu.

- The Squares/Blocks indicator gives you a quick overview of the game. This indicator looks like: 47/9. The first number is the remaining squares to go for each player's runners, and the second number is the total jammer blocks in front of each player's runners. This indicator gives you a quick view of how far ahead or behind you are in the game.

- Speed can be changed in Settings. This controls how fast each move is made. You can set it for fast moves and fading streaks, or slower moves with solid streaks. Using the Slow setting is a great way to learn how jammers move.

- The player names can be changed in Settings.

- The Score indicator, which looks like: 2-1 (3), shows both current match score and total match points being played. Match points can be changed in Settings.

----------------------------------------
Have fun with Jamzu!

Cheers,
~Doug
