3RD Sense, which operates the successful play platform Fizzy.com, and develops games and online apps for consumers and innovative brands worldwide, has released ACME Factory. The fun new Flash-based puzzle game challenges gamers of all ages to thwart the devious plans of Dr Dynamo, who is seeking to destroy the ACME Factory.

To save the ACME Factory, players must foil Dr Dynamo’s evil scheming by solving puzzles within each room of the factory. They must use their wits as well as classic ACME Factory products including magnets, cannons, fans, turntables, compression switches, bowling balls, cranes and the ever popular ACME crate to help solve the puzzles.

High scores are achieved by successfully completing the puzzles in every room entered. However, players are warned: fail to solve three rooms in a session and it will be game over for the player and the ACME Factory!

The all new ACME Factory will be released in three formats.

• Fizzy VIP members will have access to 60 levels and score submission

• Fizzy members will have access to 49 levels and submit their scores

• A non-member version allows gamers to play 36 levels

Fizzy membership is free while Fizzy VIP membership is only $5.95 per month.

Players Create Their Own Levels.

All formats of the game include a level editor which allows players to construct their own ACME Factory level and challenge other players to solve it, adding extra depth to an already fun and complex game.

INTERVIEW QUOTES / Colin Cardwell, CEO for Fizzy.com and 3RD Sense:

“Fans of the puzzle genre will love the mix of ACME Factory’s entertaining yet testing nature. As players move through the rooms of the ACME Factory they will face a series of challenging tests and puzzles that will push their problem solving abilities to the extreme.”

“In addition to the demanding components of the game, players will enjoy experimenting with ACME Factory’s fun and legendary products including bowling balls, cannons and crates. At the same time, gamers must discover how to slide through oil, climb ladders, navigate around glue, control magnets and prevent Dr Dynamo from lighting a fuse and blowing up the renowned ACME Factory with dynamite!”
