MIDLOTHIAN, VA– December 23, 2009 - SouthPeak Games today announced the arrival of Schrödinger's Rat for the iPhone and iPod touch. In Schrödinger's Rat players must guide a chalk ball through mazes full of items like quantum fur balls, disappearing walls, and mercury pools, which may help or hinder their efforts. There are 117 mazes in the game, each a test of an element on the periodic table.
"Schrödinger's Rat does a great job taking advantage of the iPhone and iPod touch's strengths to make a wonderfully charming and fun experience," said Richard Iggo, VP of Marketing for SouthPeak. "Players can pick up the game at any time and have a blast tilting their way to the finish, and even possibly learn something in the process."
The game's quirky take on the classic quantum physics conundrum posed by Erwin Schrödinger, Schrodinger’s Cat, serves as a great introduction for children and others unfamiliar with scientific concepts, and an amusing backdrop for those who catch the references within the game's story. FORMation, the game's developer, sees the game as a great opportunity to get people thinking about science and the possibilities of laboratory experimentation.
Schrödinger's Rat is available now from the iTunes App Store for the introductory price of $0.99. The game is compatible with the iPhone and iPod touch running software version 3.0 or later. For more on the game, please visit www.SchrodingersRat.com.
