Upcoming: PHOTO PLAY: Twins!

Hi folks!

A few days ago, we submitted "PHOTO PLAY: Twins" to Apple, and we are really looking forward to finally having you guys lay hands on it =)

Twins is a very fast puzzle game. The goal of each level is to cure cells of their "Twins"-disease. To do that, you have to connect two identical cells in a hexagonal grid. A connection can only be made if there is a path of empty cells between the twins, and if the path does not need to have more than 2 bends. Don't worry, it's easy to understand once you start playing.

The game first appeared on the touch screen terminal "PHOTO PLAY" a few years ago. "PHOTO PLAY" is a well-known brand in Europe, and "Twins" was very popular when it was released on those terminals.

This version of Twins uses the same game mechanics, but we poured a lot of hard work and love into this version to make it special both for newcomers and fans of the original. Graphics and sounds were created especially for the iPhone version, and we added two additional game modes -- one that takes the stress out of the game by exchanging time with action points, and another that accelerates the game even more by adding new infections as you play.

We have, of course, included all the standard features you expect from an iPhone game, like online leaderboards, facebook integration, etc.

Here are some screenshots of the game:

We will release a free edition, too (containing just the classic game mode), so nobody has an excuse for not trying it out ;-)

BTW, the game was created with the open source game engine Sparrow Framework. Well, of course it is, since we are also the developers of this framework
In any case, thanks to Sparrow, it runs super-smooth even on your oldest iPhones or iPod Touches. So, if you are interested in the framework, check it out, too!!!

Thanks for giving it a try!

Have fun =)
