Intelligent Qube inspired iPad game "Hope's Quest" brought to iPhone

Auckland, New Zealand – December 12, 2011 – Rush Digital Interactive (RDI) has released the iPhone version of its 3D action-puzzle game “Hope’s Quest.” Originally an iPad exclusive title, the NZ based company has converted the game for iPhone in time for the Holiday Season.

“We feel it’s a great gift that will appeal to a lot of people, and at US $0.99c represents immense value,” says Danushka Abeysuriya, CEO of RDI. “The iPhone version has feature parity with the iPad version, but we’ve re-tuned the user interface to be iPhone friendly, and we’ve added in-app purchasing so we can deliver new puzzles and features” says Mr Abeysuriya.

Player’s control the game’s main character “Hope” who inadvertently unleashes an evil power and must help recapture it to its prison inside Pandora's Box. Players experience 6 unique world settings such as cryptic Egyptian ruins and a mountainous Tibetan Monastery. The game contains over 60 puzzles, leader boards and achievements.

 Players move around on a set play area and are faced by a wall of cube shaped stones that roll towards them. To avoid being crushed players must exercise planning and good timing when setting traps to capture certain stones, while strategically avoiding others – something that requires forward thinking, good spatial awareness and dexterity.

The simple game mechanics and progressive nature of the puzzles mean that players new to the game who have never played Kurushi (Intelligent Qube) can still easily pick up and play Hope’s Quest.
