Get Plenty of Entertaining Gem-Busting Action on the iPhone with iPliable

Independent developer Smartphone Pliable is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of iPliable 1.0, their entertaining new arcade game for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Android devices. Players must aim and release their magnetic ball, in an effort to clear the board of the dazzling gems before the board fills to the top.

 

 

iPliable is based on the popular Mac game Snap, bringing the gem-busting excitement of the larger screen to mobile gaming lovers. Releasing the ball and sending it flying to smash a cluster of same colored gems will clear the whole group. The physics-based game offers elements of Tetris, Columns, and other popular gem-based challenges, while adding its own quirky twist to the action.

 

Features:
* Gem-busting action
* Physics-based, so aim carefully and make the shot count
* Rack up high scores by clearing large groups of the same color gem
* Play for a few minutes or play for a few hours
* Leaderboard keeps track of high scores
* Built-in Help system

 

iPliable is one of those games that players can enjoy for just a few minutes, such as while they’re waiting at the coffee shop for their morning Java or waiting for an appointment. However, the game can also be enjoyed for hours at a time, delivering game-playing goodness to even the most boring of evenings. The game is always ready in the player’s pocket, at the ready to divert them for a few minutes or for hours at the time.

 

Unlike the flat, 2-dimensional gameplay of games such as Tetris and Columns, iPliable brings a third-dimension of challenge to the gameplay. Players can’t simply aim and fire at random but must instead carefully but quickly determine where the next shot will go, in an effort to clear the most gems possible with a single shot of the metallic ball.

 

While players must strategically plan their next shot, they can’t take too long, or the gems will fill the board all the way to the top and the game will start over from scratch. Every game is a new challenge, requiring a fresh strategy each time.

 

Pricing and Availability:
iPliable 1.0 is free and is available worldwide through the App Store in the Games category. An Android version is also available through the Google Play store in the Games category.
