10tons Ltd Announces Azkend HD for iPad

Tampere, Finland– March 11th, 2010– 10tons Ltd announced today that Azkend HD, a brand new version of a hit game already available for iPhone, PC, and Mac, will be available for iPad in Spring 2010.

"The Azkend HD brings out the best the iPad and Azkend can offer: beautiful high resolution art coupled with ultra playable touch controls.", said Sampo Töyssy, the Vice CEO of 10tons Ltd. "We don't have an iPad yet, but I imagine it'll be like playing a piece of art. If you need a break and want to escape for a while, this has to be one of the most eye pleasing ways to do it. This will definitely be the most luxurious version of Azkend to date. We've used all the pixels the iPad has to offer to deliver a premium quality puzzle game for all iPad owners."

Azkend HD will feature completely remastered high definition graphics. The game will also have ultra playable touch controls already familiar from the iPhone version. Azkend HD will be launched in April 2010.
