Enjoy hours of petal-popping fun with Plantastic!

KEELE, Staffordshire, UK&BUDAORS, Hungary - November 14th, 2007 - Astraware ® and PalmStorm TM are excited to announce the release of Plantastic! for Palm OS ® and Windows Mobile ® smartphones and PDAs.

Plantastic! is a fun combination of puzzle and strategy game where you create bouquets from groups of brightly coloured flowers to clear them from the play board and reach each level's bloom target! Each game mode has a different planting pattern and blooms can only be placed near the player's last bloom within the pattern shown. Blooms drop into the queue and you must plant them in the garden before the queue fills up.

Plantastic! begins as a simple fun game, but add the challenge of more complex flower arrangements, and a range of different bloom colours as you progress, and the challenge increases. Avoid the mushrooms that block your path, and stop Mr Mole from stealing your blooms by tapping him on the head, but make sure you don't run out of time or flowers! Flower powerups like the super trowel and joker flowers will offer assistance to boost your points total.

Developed by PalmStorm and published by Astraware, Plantastic! includes 5 different play modes across 3 levels of difficulty and hundreds of play levels. The game is designed for Palm OS ® 5 and Windows Mobile ® 2003, 2003SE, 5 and 6 devices with touchscreens, and is available from the Astraware website http://www.astraware.com/plantastic, priced $19.95.
