Pixel Factory Launches Pirate Plunder – New Action-Puzzle Game

ST. LOUIS, MO – OCT. 15, 2012, Pixel Factory, today announced the release of the newest action-puzzle game, Pirate Plunder for iOS devices.  Players are tasked with connecting the stranded pirate parrot to all of his treasure scattered across the ocean using only a set number of barrels to progress through each level.

Using a never before seen gameplay mechanic, players must use TNT to blast through obstacles, discover buried treasure, avoid deadly mines, and maneuver around the level to make a path for connections in order to connect Captain BlackJack with his lost booty.  Stunning visuals showcase Apple’s retina display, while cartoon visuals and entertaining audio create a fresh and addictive experience for players of every age.

“Challenging is definitely one word you could use to describe Pirate Plunder,” said Trey Baugher, Founder of Pixel Factory and creator of the game. “Unique is another.  Similar to when Angry Birds burst onto the scene with it ‘sling shot’ gameplay, Pirate Plunder is bringing its own new ‘connection’ gameplay front and center.  It’s not until you start playing that you truly grasp the real appeal of this new type of game.”

Players can decide how much they want to challenge themselves with the implementation of the "3 Star" reward system, or "Jems" in the case of Pirate Plunder.  Earning three "Jems" on each level will truly fry players’ brains, in a good way.  A non-violent, thought-provoking game meant to hone gamers’ analytical skills, is sure to entertain.

Pixel Factory is a start-up game development studio based out of Edwardsville, Illinois.  Founded by a graduate of the award-winning school for entertainment media, Full Sail University, the company's sole focus is creating fun games that are visually appealing while enjoying the development process.  Pirate Plunder is the first official release from the studio with a second title ready to launch by end of summer.

The free version of Pirate Plunder will contain 12 levels and comes advertisement-free.  It is priced at $0.99 and contains 96 levels.
