NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. Outsmarts the World With DOODLE FIT 2™ for iPhone, iPad & iPod touch

SAN JOSE, Calif. (June 28, 2012) – Leading publisher NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. today announced the release of DOODLE FIT 2™, its latest game for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. DOODLE FIT 2 is the follow-up to best-selling and critically-praised DOODLE FIT. As in the previous iteration, DOODLE FIT 2 challenges players to form a variety of complex shapes and pictures from a set of simple pieces. Given the grand variety of shapes available, puzzles can have multiple solutions, providing immense replay value. While featuring classic game mechanics, the game has conquered legions of fans worldwide thanks to its addictive design and plentiful content updates.

“It was exciting to create a new entry to an already successful franchise," says James Kucera, Executive Producer and Head of Mobile, NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. "With DOODLE FIT 2 we knew we needed to keep the light-hearted, fun feeling of the game and give the fans something worth investing in. We realized that ambition by adding an array of new features and an interesting twist around pop culture landmarks and lifestyle icons.”

DOODLE FIT 2 features 200 puzzles at launch, progressively unlocked by playing increasingly difficult levels, all themed around a trip around the globe, with popular landmarks like the Empire State Building, the Lincoln Memorial and the Eiffel Tower and featuring locations in the USA, Mexico, the UK, France, Italy, Greece, Egypt, India, China and Japan. For particularly fiendish puzzles, hints can be earned or acquired through In-App Purchase. DOODLE FIT 2 also comes with a Time Attack Mode, over 25 challenges, leaderboards and features Game Center with detailed profile statistics. The fun of DOODLE FIT 2™ can be extended with multiplayer mode, by creating new puzzles and challenging friends, or through the DOODLE FIT online community.

"With DOODLE FIT 2 we set the bar for casual puzzlers with its Multiplayer mode and Level Creator, allowing our community to flourish with its creativity," said Patryk Bukowiecki, Executive Producer, Gamelion.

The DOODLE FIT 2 App is available for $0.99 from the App Store on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch or at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/doodle-fit-2-around-the-world/id517299422
