SCRAP! BEATS DOWN THE BAD-BOY OF 1985, TETRIS

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

February 20, 2009 -- Splitcode Inc. ( http://www.splitcode.com) is pleased to announce the release of SCRAP! for the iPhone and the iPod Touch. It is the first 360 degree puzzle game that takes a new spin on a classic office time-killer.

It has been 25 years since TETRIS was released. Despite all of its minor graphical enhancements, TETRIS has never really changed. In response to the demands of a more challenging puzzle scenario by today’s gamers, Splitcode released its first title called SCRAP! for the iPhone and the iPod Touch.

“Every puzzle game can become boring after the first couple of plays,” says Jeremy, Lead Designer for Splitcode.“People want something that can challenge their intellect as well as their hand-eye coordination! The goal for SCRAP!’s design, was to create a puzzle game that was as challenging as it is addictive”.

By putting a completely different spin on block-building puzzle games; SCRAP! keeps you on your toes by making you stack up pieces on a 360 degree environment, and then randomly switches the sides each time you complete a side.

In addition to SCRAP!, Splitcode released SCRAP! Lite, a free trial version of the game to allow players a chance to become comfortable with the game’s touch controls. SCRAP! Lite also provides the player with a preview of its original music score and a YouTube video to show players how to play and utilize the features of the game right from their iPhone and iPod Touch.
