BUNDANG, South Korea - March 10, 2011

Team Sollmo, the game development group of app and game publisher Company100, Inc., today released a comprehensive update for the free-to-play, single-player RPG Buddy Rush . The update, which went live earlier today, includes a variety of gameplay and balancing updates, new content including characters, items and levels and iPad compatibility. With the addition of iPad compatibility, users can play Buddy Rush on iOS devices and Facebook for a cross-platform experience. Finally, Team Sollmo will be awarding players 10 free chips when they invite a Facebook Friend to the game.

“Now that Buddy Rush is available for free on the iPad, players can have the same portable dungeon-crawling fun on a bigger screen,” said Jin Cheon Kim, CEO of Company100, Inc.“The team has been working since launch to add iPad compatibility and implement various updates and tweaks. This is only the first update and we’re committed to frequently improving the game with new, fun content.”

The update includes two chapters, each with a special area. Bootomb is a graveyard-themed area in which players will need to protect a town from ghosts, while Questern is an American Western-themed area featuring gunslinging Oblins. Along with the areas, powerful new characters are available and the level cap has been raised to 60. A batch of useful new items has been added, as well as a Fishing Mode that allows free fishing for items. Finally, Team Sollmo has lifted the restriction on Friend limits, allowing players access to all their Facebook Friends as possible allies.
