10tons Ltd Announces Sparkle for iPhone

Tampere, Finland– February 4th, 2010– 10tons Ltd announced today that Sparkle, a number one hit game by MythPeople, will be available for iPhone™ and iPod touch® in March 2010.

"Over a million people have enjoyed Sparkle on PC and Mac, and we're so proud to bring it on to the iPhone. The game is full of this mystical whimsy magic that just draws you in.", commented Sampo Töyssy, the Vice CEO of 10tons Ltd. "The adaptation was carefully handcrafted with lots of love and it really shows - the game is more than fabulous! Now you can have this hugely popular PC game for your iPhone with no compromises: even all the awesome music is there."

Sparkle iPhone has all the features from the PC game including three game modes and a magnificent sound track by Jonathan Geer. The main storyline takes the player through the magical forest of Crowberry Woods in a quest to save it from the darkness. The basic game play was inspired by classic games like Puzz Loop or Zuma but the final result is nothing short of unique. While the game is easy to learn, there is also a lot of room for improvement after that. For example, powerups are gained after each series of three successive moves so a skilled player can plan out his actions beforehand a bit. In addition, the player gains amulets which have an effect on the game rules and so they open a wide range of new game play options. The gamehas three unique game modes and over 90 levels in the first difficulty level. For those who like mystery, there are also some hidden secrets to discover.

The game was developed by MythPeople and will be published by 10tons Ltd. Their previous releases like Azkend, Rope Raider, and Dragon Portals have been getting outstanding reviews since their release. Additional unique titles just for iPhone and iPod touch are in the horizon alongside with mobile adaptations of more successful casual games. Also, a new product line of iPad ready games is in development including iPad tailored versions of Azkend and Boom Brigade.

Sparkle will be available in March 2010.
