Astraware and Digital Eel launch Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space on the iPad

Originally released for Mac and PC in 2006, Weird Worlds is set in a randomly generated universe where players meet exotic aliens, discover black holes, encounter drifting space hulks carrying untold riches or untimely death, witness the death of stars and engage in space combat using a diverse array of weapons.

“ Weird Worlds is perfect for iPad,” said Howard Tomlinson, CEO of Astraware.“Directing space battles with a touch of the finger is great fun, and very engaging!”

Weird Worlds is quick to play (game can be played in just 15 to 30 minutes) and each game begins with a newly generated star map, so offering players countless hours of challenging space exploration, combat and adventure!

“We're really happy to work with Astraware to bring Weird Worlds to the iPad,” said Rich Carlson, CEO of Digital Eel.“The team at Astraware have taken the game a step beyond, into the future. Now players can experience the wonders, dangers and disgusting aliens of the Purple Void with the touch of a finger! Eww!”

Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space is available now, priced $4.99, exclusively on the App Store on iPad and from http://www.itunes.com/appstore. For more information on Weird Worlds: Return To Infinite Space for iPad, visit http://www.astraware.com/ipad/weirdworlds.
