The Crystal Maze Launches on iPhone&iPod Touch

Dundee 22 February 2010:

START THE FANS PLEASE!! The iconic Richard OBrien returns with his leopard-print coat, magnetic charisma and hilarious anecdotes to be your guide through the four zones of cult 1990s game show The Crystal Maze.

Developed by BAFTA award-winning studio Dynamo Games, The Crystal Maze captures the show perfectly. With classic mid-zone animations, appearances from Richard O Brien and Mumsie, the official soundtrack this is a fitting tribute to an iconic series.

Better yet, the game also features a free 16-sample soundboard chock-full of your favourite series sound-bites, Richard O Brien quotable and even some of his famous harmonica solos.

TWO MINUTES TEAM!! Relive the classic TV game show as you take on the challenges of the Medieval, Futuristic, Aztec and Industrial zones, full to the brim with devious puzzles and obstacles.

The Crystal maze comes complete with two challenging game modes. The first is TV Show Campaign, which tasks players with the full Crystal Maze challenge with lock-ins, meeting Mumsie, collecting crystals and trying to beat the final test of the Crystal Dome itself.

Challenge Mode lets players take on any completed challenges to compete for the highest score via Open Feint leaderboard connectivity.

With a wide range of free expansion packs in development for future release, The Crystal Maze boasts generous replay value and a high nostalgia factor.
