Babo Crash from Playbrains Brings Lightning-Quick Puzzle Action to iPhone

OTTAWA - March 4, 2010

Playbrains, an independent game development studio, today announced their upcoming mobile gaming debut with Babo Crash, a fast-paced action puzzler built for iPhone, iPad and Android platforms. Babo Crash starts out simple with familiar gem-swapping match-3 gameplay, rewarding players who create bigger matches– but it ramps up the intensity one level at a time, adding hero characters with special abilities, real-time enemy combat, destructive powerups, chain reactions and evolving objectives.

Rotating the device shifts gravity, adding a strategic element to gameplay. Additionally, tilting the device contols a hero’s special power s, emphasizing tactics and rewarding fast reflexes. Once players guide a bomb to its detonation zone, they’ll instantly clear the stage and enter Overtime, a frantic bonus round where they can rack up huge scores through combo chains and multipliers.

BaboCrash brings frenetic match-three action with tons of genre-bending features:

• Addictive, high tempo match-three puzzle action

• Gorgeous graphics with over-the-top special effects

• Strategically rotate your device to control collapses

• Unleash heroic abilities to destroy tons of gems at once

• Combo/multiplier system - the faster you match, the higher you score

• 21 levels to ramp up the madness

• Leaderboards and Achievements via OpenFeint

Babo Crash is coming to the App Store in March 2010 for $0.99. For additional details, visit: http://www.playbrains.com/babocrash
