Invaders World Tour 3 Receives a Cosmic Power-up and Adds Option for TV Output

Game Developers Conference, San Francisco - March 3, 2011 - Appular announces its latest update for Invaders World Tour 3, an interplanetary defense game now available as a Universal app for all iOS devices. Along with Retina Display graphics, the update features a TV output option, enabling users to play the game on their television by syncing two iDevices and using their iPhone or iPod touch as a wireless Bluetooth or WiFi controller. To connect the iDevices to the television, users will need an Apple VGA Display Adapter or the newly announced Apple Digital AV Adapter.

In an heroic effort to defend humanity, players engage in the epic battle that spans across 12 different countries in 60 explosive levels and bonus stages. Newly added fire power include enhanced auto-fire, improved detonator and ice raider guns, and also a new angular missile for wider demolition spectrum. New power-ups include extra bullets, rapid fire and side swipers to help players fend against the never-before-seen boss, Brain Man and the new invader bomb, firestorm. In addition, users will now be able to locally sync OpenFeint and Game Center achievements to keep them in one organized and easily accessible place.

“This update for Invaders World Tour 3 is the first time we’re integrating a TV output option to our games. We are looking at the possibility of bringing this feature to more of our games, so that users can enjoy the iOS gaming experience on their television, while sitting back on their couch,” says Brian Akaka, CEO and founder of Appular. "Until the day when iOS games can be played on an Apple TV, this is the best way to bring iOS games to the larger home screen."

“Our team is committed to raising the bar in mobile gaming and a perfect example is in the latest updated of Invaders World Tour 3,” says Scott Wilson-Billing, Software Developer for MeYuMe.“The TV output option combined with the built-in remote controller feature takes mobile gaming to a new level, as it enables users to use their iOS devices as a wireless hand-held controller while playing the game on the big screen! It essentially turns the user’s iPhone or iPad into a mobile games console.”

Invaders World Tour 3 also includes a tool that enables players to create their own in-game sound effects that can be shared via Bluetooth connections called, vBox. Users can choose from the two different sound themes for game-play; Modern, for new-age players, Retro, for nostalgic ones, or use a theme that they created.

Invaders World Tour 3 is available on all iOS devices for $1.99 on the iTunes App Store at: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/invaders-world-tour-3/id403754945?mt=8
