Blockdot Launches Dingbats Game for the iPad

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

September 20, 2011 (Dallas, TX) – Perk up your day with some real puzzle fun — and for FREE, too! Dallas-based Blockdot has released an iPad version of Dingbats, a game originally conceived by Julann Griffin, co-creator of television's Jeopardy!                                                                                                                        

Dingbats, which has been updated with beautiful graphics and touch screen controls for today’s modern puzzle lover, challenges you to unravel the answers to three puzzles that share a related theme. To play, click up to 10 letters to help you fill in the phrases. After you click on a letter, it "runs" through the puzzle, filling in any  space in the 3 phrases in which it belongs.

·         Multiple puzzle styles including Chain Gang, Finish the Quote, and Three of a Kind.
