Amsterdam, Netherlands, September 24, 2009 - Bart Groothuijze and Codeglue today announced the launch of the game iSpiral for iPhone™ and iPod touch®.
iSpiral is a casual game with a retro look & feel and highly differentiating controls. The game is based upon a game called ‘The Spiral’, which became famous when it was used in a extremely popular Dutch TV-Show in the 80’s.
“I am excited to be able to share the authentic and original game of iSpiral with millions of Apple iPhone™ and iPod Touch® users globally”, said Bart Groothuijze, initiator and designer of iSpiral. “I never thought it would be possible to bring a unique game with equal unique experience to a handheld, and keep such a game in just one hand!”
“Bart is a longtime relation to our company, and therefore it was a great privilege to be able to advice him upon the development of such an original and fun game-concept. We wish him and his game iSpiral great success”, said Peter de Jong, CEO at Codeglue. “Rumor is that he is working on a great cross-promotion for iSpiral that is unique to Apple’s App Store... Having seen the game, we are more than curious to see with what great cooperation he will come up with!”
The goal of the game is to bring a small ring from start to finish over a labyrinth-like track, without touching the track. Keywords are concentration and fun, and by playing you also train and optimise your hand-eye coordination.
• 16 great and challenging levels
