Puzzle fans rejoice: Chuck’s Challenge on iOS gets major update and free access to over 1,000 user-generated levels!

London, UK - May 22 nd 2012 - From the game design genius behind multi-million selling gaming classic Chip’s Challenge, CHUCK’S CHALLENGE is a fiendishly addictive puzzler that’s packed with features to tease the brain and challenge the fingers. In a major update of the app, the developer Niffler have added over 75 new changes and features to add even more endless playability. These changes include new graphics, improved controls, and free access to over 1,000 user-generated levels - a feature which previously required an in-app purchase. CHUCK’S CHALLENGE is available NOW on the App Store - http://bit.ly/chucks_ios

In Chuck’s Challenge you meet Woop, a puzzle loving purple alien. Woop has summoned all-round puzzle game legend Chuck Sommerville for one purpose - to create a universe of puzzles for him to work his way out of.  In the game you take control of Woop navigating his way through level after level of tricks and traps that stand between him and reaching the exit portal. Shift blocks, find keys, flip switches, wade through water, hot-foot it through lava and do everything it takes to make it out in one piece and evade an army of hungry creatures who want nothing more than to turn our purple hero into a tasty Woop sandwich!

Game features:

• 100 brain tingling single player levels (the first 25 levels are completely FREE)

• A universe of weird and wonderful characters as well as over 70 game elements including rubber dinghies and magnet hands to interact with

• The ability to challenge your friends to a speedy puzzle face-off in Bluetooth RACE mode

• MASSIVE replayability through the FREE WEEKLY PUZZLE and HUNDREDS of user-created levels

• A powerful level editor that lets you create your own puzzles and upload them to the Chuck’s Challenge community, where other players can rate the ones they like best

CHUCK’S CHALLENGE is available for iPhone and iPad from bit.ly/chucks_ios  and is FREE to download and play. Have you got the skills - and more importantly, the brainpower - to solve all 100 levels?

About Niffler

At Niffler we believe that games should not simply be a passive experience, so we publish games that are fun to play & make. Our aim is to develop games that are not only great to play, but also allow the player to create and share their own content using tools that are as simple to use as playing the games themselves.

Our games incorporate social, cloud and user-generated content elements that are platform agnostic, allowing them to make the leap from the small screen to the living room.
