“Pinch” Has Returned In Glorious HD For The Apple iPad® - Bigger, Better&Bolder Than Ever!

Coatsink Software are releasing Pinch 2 (HD) on the App Store this coming Friday, a sequel to the popular and critically-praised game for the Apple iPhone®&Apple iPod touch®. Pinch 2 (HD) is exclusively available on the Apple iPad® and was built from scratch with crisp and beautiful HD graphics, improved audio, and better“Pinch”; and to celebrate the launch of the Apple iPad® sequel, the original version for the Apple iPhone® and Apple iPod touch® is available for free– that’s FREE– from now until May 10 th 2011!

In this ingenious and engrossing puzzler, it is your job to guide groups of colored orbs, called“Norbs”, to the exit of each level. This is done by physically dragging them by use of your finger. On your way, you will encounter a myriad of obstacles that will require you to merge Norbs together, or separate them, in order to alter their size and color. As you progress, new game-mechanics will be introduced, and the logic puzzles involved in reaching the exit of each level will become more challenging.

The HD version introduces new and improved obstacles and features, as well as more than a few surprises and collectibles! Use the unique merging and separating 'Pinch' technique to surpass Color Barriers and Holes, teleport around the levels using Chutes, and find a way to get the game-changing Black and Silver Norbs to the exit! Pinch 2 (HD) features an astonishing 100 levels, 20 of which are available in the initial FREE download with additional levels available for in-app purchase. There is plenty of content to keep even the best player occupied for a long time, and Coatsink will be introducing updates in the future!

The game also allows you to complete levels in a variety of different ways to win awards, collect stars, and features 20 Game Center Achievements for perfectionists and hardcore players, as well as leader-boards for competitive puzzle experts. The icing on the cake is original music and sound effects from award-winning composers, and a unique color blind mode for those players having difficulty distinguishing certain colors!

Pinch for the Apple iPhone®&Apple iPod touch® is available for FREE to celebrate the launch of the HD version. This offer expires on May 10 th
