France– April 27, 2010– Bulkypix and White Birds Productions today announced that Babel Rising, its award-winning tower defense puzzle game for iPhone and iPod touch, has sold more than 1 million units worldwide.
Babel Rising is a tower-defense game with a twist. The tower in this case is the Tower of Babel from Genesis 11:1-9, and you play God trying to keep the builders from completing the tower for as long as possible.
You accumulate points for killing humans with your various divine powers and for slowing the builders down. Your powers include the finger of God (invoked by touching humans), lighting bolts (swipe down with one finger), mighty wind (swipe across with one finger), a tidal wave (swipe across with two fingers), fireballs from heaven (swipe down with two fingers, and earthquake (shake the iPhone). Each power takes time to recharge, and depending on the destructiveness of the power, recharging time ranges from quick (finger of God, lightning) to slow (wind, tidal wave) to very slow (fire balls, earthquake). That means the stronger destructive powers can only be used occasionally. It should be noted that none of these divine powers do any damage to the tower itself, only to the humans. However, occasionally, God’s divine eye grows large and blinks. If you touch the eye at the critical moment, you can utterly destroy one level (but only one) of the tower.
"Bulkypix steps above other publishers by truly working hard to bring their games to market,” said Michel Bams of White Birds Productions.“No other company has managed to repeatedly raise previously unknown titles to the top of the App Store charts, making them into leading game brands as they have done with Babel Rising."
“As soon as anyone plays Babel Rising, they are happy and addicted,” promised Bulkypix COO and Head of Marketing, Vincent Dondaine.“The game has universal appeal. After all, who would want to pass up playing God?"
Anyone who wants to dive into this hugely addictive game can get the full version for just $0.99 on the App Store now.
