Gothenburg, Sweden & Tampere, Finland – November 12th, 2009 – Legendo Entertainment and Innogiant today announced that Spooky Spirits: Puzzle Drop!!, an original falling-block puzzle game wrapped up in the adventures of wacky spirit wardens Becky and Tim, is planned for release on the iTunes App Store this Holiday season.
Developed by the handheld specialists at newly founded Innogiant, Spooky Spirits: Puzzle Drop!!, will have players traveling the world, capturing runaway spirits in various fun and exciting game modes designed for puzzle fanatics and casual players alike.
Having fallen asleep on their watch and lost the Spookies, Becky and Tim are banished and risk losing their spirit warden jobs unless they manage to recapture these pesky ghosts. The unfortunate duo must search haunted locations on Earth to track down the Spookies including the Sphinx of Egypt, a Haunted House in England and an abandoned crypt in Finland featuring none other than Dead Santa himself.
Jani Nurminen, Lead Engineer at Innogiant said, “We’ve had a lot of fun reworking Spooky Spirits into a pocket version, even though it’s been a little scary at times as we’ve spent many nights in the dark, optimizing the original code so that it takes full advantage of the iPhone and iPod Touch.”
Bjorn Larsson, Executive Producer at Legendo Entertainment, noted, “Innogiant managed to include every single Spookie from the original game! There must be at least half a million of them hiding in there now — an amazing feat for a nifty little device such as the iPhone! If everyone helps catching the Spookies, we can make the world a better place by stopping them from haunting innocent people.”
Spooky Spirits: Puzzle Drop!! offers a unique twist on the classic falling block and “match-2” gameplay format. In the game, players build and expand stacks of Spookies in any direction and in any amount.
Three Game Modes:
•In the Panic Mode, players must clear each level by catching an appropriate amount of Spookies before the screen overfills.
•Puzzle Mode is a relaxed mode with no stress – players must outsmart the Spookies’ clever puzzles and beat them in their own game using only a limited number of blocks.
•Eternity Mode is a Tetris-inspired exhaust mode that just keeps going for as long as players can keep at it or reach the max-score of 9,999,999 points (that’s A LOT of Spookies to catch!).
•Swipe the screen to control the game, left and right selects blocks, up swaps them and down drops them!
Spooky Spirits: Puzzle Drop!! will be available on the iTunes App Store in time for Christmas and will be appropriate for players of all ages.
