“ISLANDS OF DIAMONDS LITE” HITS THE APP STORE

03.30.12: Following the successful March launch of its universal iOS game, “Islands of Diamonds,” developer Happymonitor Games Studio continues to rigorously support the game and today invites yet more players to its unique blend of ball-rolling and physics platforming fun.

“Islands of Diamonds Lite” releases through the App Store today and gives players a taste of the full game by allowing them unrestricted exploration of six of the full thirty islands available to paid players. The six islands sample all three unique island themes from the full game and provide a great introduction to the game’s unique puzzles, traps, twists, and turns. The “Lite” version also allows players to sample over forty in-game achievements from the over two hundred in the full game which also supports Apple’s Game Center.

To celebrate the release, the studio have listened to existing players and have also added a third control option – an on-screen joy-pad – to the existing swipe and tilt controls. The full version of the game has been similarly updated to 1.2 with the controls:
