Montréal, QC — October 17, 2013— Hibernum Création is proud to announce its partner iWin has launched its mega-hit game, Jewel Quest , worldwide on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch (iOS platform). Jewel Quest is one of the most popular casual games of all time, with downloads exceeding over 200 million across all platforms throughout its 9-year history. Although several iterations of Jewel Quest have been released on mobile devices in the past, this is the first free-to-play version of the game that has been designed specifically for smartphone and tablet devices. Hibernum Créations was proud to develop the new version of this classic game.
Jewel Quest is a Match-3 game with strong puzzle-solving gameplay, beautiful environments, and a lively adventure storyline. Players must use classic Match-3 mechanics to overcome carefully-designed levels and a wide variety of challenges and twists. Featuring Game Center and Facebook social connectivity, players will be able to race their friends across the game’s varied locales and the leaderboards of its many levels.
In Jewel Quest , players step into the shoes of adventurer Sarah Pack as she explores the deadly and baffling Isles of Illusion. Players will tackle an impressive diversity of levels and obstacles on their journey, collecting powerful relics to help them overcome the Isles’ many tricks and puzzles. With over 75 levels and 9 islands at launch – and more to come for free in future updates – Jewel Quest will provide a deep and engrossing campaign to keep players entertained for months.
“iWin is incredibly excited about releasing our top property as a free-to-play mobile game. This franchise continues to resonate with the mass market, and based on the early reviews of the game, we’re happy to report it remains loyal to its rich history as an engaging and often addictive puzzler,” said CJ Wolf, iWin’s co-founder and CEO.
“Hibernum Créations is thrilled to count iWin as a partner and develop the new mobile version of their top brand Jewel Quest. We are delighted with the result – the visuals and graphics are astonishing – and we are confident that this new version will please fans and seduce a new generation,” said Louis-René Auclair, Chief Brand Officer.
