Impressionware’s casual puzzle game VEMPIRE now playable on Facebook.

Torino, Italy 7 December 2009

For immediate release

The casual puzzle game VEMPIRE (Vampire + Empire) is now available on Facebook too. The Sony PSP and iPhone game has been slightly modified for the new social platform. The game is more arcade and the strategy parts have been removed in favor of a more immediate high score centric gameplay.

Luigi Fumero, Impressionware’s managing director and VEMPIRE designer, said:“VEMPIRE is now almost everywhere. The PSP version has been quite a success both in sales and reviews. We are now allowing more people to enjoy it, challenge their friends and see how good they are compared to the rest of the world.”

The game is currently in beta and can be played here: http://apps.facebook.com/vempire

The full version of VEMPIRE available for Sony PSP and iPhone/iPod touch is a casual puzzle game with added strategy. It is more than a classic“match three” game. The player has to collect artifacts, summon minions and collect powers to be used during the levels. Strategy is required to tackle the various different levels and the monsters the player will challenge to become king of the monster empire.
