flaregames Releases Huge Update for Runaway Hit BraveSmart

KARLSRUHE, Germany – June 21, 2012 - flaregames GmbH, a mobile games company, today announced the first major update for its popular puzzle strategy game, BraveSmart, a match 3 game set in a comical Scottish world. The game was released in late May and quickly saw more than 200,000 downloads as it rose in the charts around the world. The updated game is now available in the App Store, and via Google Play and other Android markets and makes the game even more fun for players of all skill levels.

BraveSmart is about helping Scottish clans colonize the Highlands. To do this the player swipes the screen and combines resources intuitively: Three stones make a smithy, three wood piles a hut, three building a warehouse and so on, up to castles. The mechanic of the game is simple, clever and shows its depth as players progress in this addictive match 3 game.

"BraveSmart has hit the top of the charts in every market already and we’re making it even more fun for the players,” said Andreas Suika, flaregames' Creative Director and Game Designer for BraveSmart. " We’ll continue to fine-tune all of our titles to ensure we balance the fun with the challenge. The average consumer review score of “5 stars” proves our commitment to quality.”
