Stockholm, Sweden - October 11, 2011

Fans of the water splashing and fire fighting puzzle game Sprinkle from Swedish studio Mediocre will be excited to learn that the studio has today released one new world of 12 new levels for the critically acclaimed iOS and Android game. This update, available as a free download, will also add two levels to the game’s first world and will bring Game Center support to Sprinkle. Don’t be left high and dry, update Sprinkle today on your iOS or Tegra-Android device today for more fire-fighting fun!

“When Sprinkle launched the outcry of happy fans was incredible and we couldn’t wait to get started building new fun and challenging levels,” said Dennis Gustafsson, co-founder of Mediocre. “We hope that fans have as much fun playing these new levels as we’ve had designing them!”

Also included in this content update will be a batch of six new levels exclusive only to players who made an in-app purchase to unlock Sprinkle’s third or fourth worlds. At launch, worlds three and four were unlockable only by earning 5-drop ratings on all prior levels, or by making an in-app purchase. This IAP was quickly removed after launch due to customer feedback. Those who paid to unlock the levels before the IAP was removed will be receiving six exclusive levels as part of today’s update.

Sprinkle is an addictive water-physics based puzzle game where players must use a water cannon mounted on a crane to douse fires that threaten to burn the villages of Titan’s little blue alien inhabitants. Adjust the cannon’s height and angle in real-time to move obstacles, spin water wheels, and overcome more obstacles in order to get the water flowing where it needs to be – all while dealing with time and water limits. With this update, Sprinkle now includes 60 levels for players new and old to tackle, with an additional six levels for players who made an early in-app purchase.

Key highlights of Sprinkle include:

? Amazing water physics – Some of the most realistic water physics ever seen on a touch device make Sprinkle an exciting and addicting puzzler.

? Brain-teasing puzzles – What starts as simply pointing and spraying to quench each fire becomes much more challenging, as players must overcome the intricacies of each puzzle before time and water run out.

? Blocks, boulders, and cogs oh my – Use the power of your water cannon to move blocks of ice and boulders of rock, spin giant cogs, and depress traps in order to reach and put out every last fire.

The inhabitants of Titan, a moon of Saturn, once lead simple and peaceful lives. That all changed when reckless space tourists from Earth crashed through Saturn’s rings, causing a fiery storm of asteroids to rain down on the Titans. One brave Titan, Ouie, has built a massive water cannon to combat the fires – but he needs your help to man the cannon!
