Gluddle springs to Android!

Amsterdam, March 24, 2013 - Creative Heroes is happy to announce the much anticipated Android release of Gluddle , now available on the Google Play Store.

In this action-puzzle game players aim and launch cute bouncy balls, the Gluddle, towards a totalitarian invasion called The Supervision, who loom down on the Gluddle in a continuous pursuit for order and control. The game's standout feature is freezing Gluddle in flight, turning them into stationary Peggle-like pins in order to rebound other colorful Gluddle. Gluddle must be placed strategically to navigate each level's challenges and free themselves from being dominated by the Supervision.

The game’s theme and satirical scenery are not just winks to George Orwell’s 1984. The designers create the illusion of a real-life Trojan invasion using in-game popup notifications, in which the Supervision communicates directly to the player about seizing control of the player’s device and personal data. Through this the designers hope to raise awareness for modern privacy issues.

The original release of Gluddle for iOS in February 2012 was met with much critical acclaim  and has received numerous awards and nominations, including the Control Industry Award for Best Dutch Game of 2012. Gluddle scored an average of 4.5 out of 5 stars on popular websites such as Kotaku, IndieGameMag and EuroGamer. Since its launch, players have voiced over 3.6 million of protesting Ois.

Gluddle is now available in the Google Play Store for free and comes with 20 levels. Players can upgrade to all 116 levels and future level updates for the price of $1.99. An updated version for iOS is also now available in the Apple App Store.

Critical Acclaim

"There truly is no other game quite like Gluddle." - IndieGameMag

"Clever and well-realized, rock-solid, highly addictive gameplay. These goofy eyeballs bounce into near-perfect physics perfection." - Kotaku

‎"Gluddle made me laugh. Several times. Out loud. (...) It’s a puzzle, a physics game, and there’s a lot to figure out, and the thing is, you can’t lose, and it makes you laugh. It is fun. Major Fun. It will make you laugh. It will keep you playing. It will make you laugh some more." - Majorfun.com

"Gluddle, which is one of the most addictive physics-based iOS games I’ve come across, has just been bumped to version 2.0. In its initial state, Gluddle is already a fantastic physics puzzler. But now, in its updated version, the game is even more so." - AppAdvice

"Gluddle is a fantastic, creative game that doesn’t just copy the mechanics of other puzzle titles, it takes them, mashes them together, and pushes them farther than they have been previously, and has had some great support through updates from the developers. For that, it’s definitely worth checking out." - TheAppShack

"Lots of physics-based knock out games will really raise your blood pressure (Angry Birds and Cut the Rope are notorious for this). For some reason, Gluddle doesn’t do this. It’s mellow." - BestKidsApps

"It’s like throwing a bouncy ball very hard indoors and seeing what it smashes. Fun, in other words." - Games Asylum

"Wa-Wa-wow! This game is absolutely immense!" - WeDoCode

"When George Orwell sat down to write dark dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, he couldn't have known that he would one day inspire Gluddle, a physics-based iOS puzzler where you dislodge spying Big Brother-style eyes in the sky." - Eurogamer App of the Day

"Gluddle is a solid title. This hidden gem is packed with amusing gameplay, impressive music and colorful graphics that make it one of the top physics-puzzler games in my book." - AppsOnTap

"That game is confusing, obscure, weird and has a soundtrack that is almost annoying. Played the demo for a couple of minutes, fell in love with it and bought the full version. Great job, and great game!" - ZombieGorilla
