Twin It!

Jocs

TWIN IT! - WHEN THE IPAD BECOMES A PUZZLE!
--

Twin It! is a concentration game which is perfect for places where you pause and contemplate: during the lunch break, in the bus, while skydiving, or while at work (if your boss is understanding), you´ll always manage to squeeze in a quick game in under 5 minutes which will reveal your passion for hypnosis and reflection.

The goal of the game is simple – you have to find the one pair of identical symbols on the entire iPad screen: it sounds easy, but it´s a real challenge when more than 40 other symbols stand in your way! So, is it better to try and do it yourself and do everything alone? Or gather a few friends and all look together to try and bust some high scores?

No matter how you decide to play it, in addition to the default "Cooperative" mode, two other play modes are also available!
• The "Search" mode will show off your dexterity and will require you to be as fast as possible to empty a screen full of symbols: perfect for your training as ninja master.
• The "Versus" mode will split the screen of your iPad in two, and will allow you to face off against one of your friends in a frenzied battle, so that they can finally recognize your well-deserved supremacy (at least in terms of efficiency at emptying screens).

--
And now, a few fake quotes transcribing the emotions you may experience by owning (And playing) the game:

► "Before, I had serious back issues. Ever since TwinIt! on iPad, nothing´s changed, but at least now I´ve having serious fun! An absolute must-own!" - Sophie
► "Gaaaaaahhhh! I almost had it! I knew it, I knew it was that symbol! Dagnabit!" - Leon
► "The Versus mode is a little wonder when you want to humiliate a friend... Or... Let a friend humiliate you, as has just happened to me 5 times in a row... Hmm... Excuse me, I need to go practice." - Jo´
► "Twin It! is one of those applications which must absolutely be shown off at all costs during an evening with friends when you want to be glamorous." - Bertrand
► "Just... One... More... Game... And... Then... I´ll... Stop... I Swear..." - Anonymus
► "I bought that game by mistake while thinking I was fixing the brightness of my device, and it´s the best thing that ever happened to me." - Matt
► "このゲームは本当に良いです" - Keisuke
► "The logo looks really nice on my iPad´s desktop. 5 / 5" - Antoine

Catan

Jocs

"Catan", the legendary strategy game on iPhone and iPod touch provides gaming fun any time, anywhere. True to the original game, you can compete with up to four players for the most settlements, the longest roads and the largest army. You can trade with each other and claim the precious land with all its resources.
If there are no other players available, various Catanians, each with their own individual characteristics, will prove themselves worthy competitors: the pirate Jean, who knows no compromise, Vincent the merchant, who never allows himself to be cheated, Sean the knight, who takes what is rightfully his...

The popular Catan expansions “Seafarers” and “Cities and Kights” are available as In-App purchases.
The complete Seafarers expansion includes more than 10 additional scenarios with an extensive campaign. Become Harbormaster, discover new islands and extra game elements like ships, gold fields, treasures and pirates. Ahoy!
The Cities and Knights expansion introduces various new gameplay mechanics that add even more variety to Catan. Invest new trade goods in city improvements to build one of the three metropolises of Catan – but beware of the barbarians attracted by Catan’s new wealth! You’ll need your best knights to fend them off! C&K contains a short campaign and 7 challenging maps.

Find out if you really are a secret colonialist, confront your rivals and become Lord of Catan!

Features:

- Original "Settlers of Catan" rule set
- Hot-Seat-Multiplayer mode

Catan FAQ:

Question: An expansion seems gone after an update or reinstallation of Catan or after restoring my phone?
Answer: Don’t worry, your initial purchase is already saved in your iTunes account. However for technical reasons you might have to select “Buy” again. Confirm and an iTunes message will tell you that you’ve already purchased it and that you can re-download for free. You will NOT be billed twice!

Question: I lost my campaign progress after reinstalling, updating or restoring my phone. Is there any way to restore it?
Answer: When savegames can’t be automatically restored, we’ve integrated a cheat code: In the campaign mode go to select player and enter „CatanWarp*“ (* = 1–15) as your player name and confirm. Exit the game via the home button and restart it. The campaign can now be continued from the specified level number (1–15). Levels up to the specified number will be unlocked in the custom game mode as well.

Question: Are dice rolls really random?
Answer: Of course! All dice rolls are 100% random and not modified in any way. We’re avid Catan players ourselves. We’ve played the iOS version hundreds of times while developing the program. There have been times when we won and lost a few games in a row because of the dice - just like when playing the board game!

Question: What about online multiplayer and further expansions?
Answer: Further content for Catan is already in development. Check our Facebook/Twitter sites for updates and/or beta news.

Theseus

Jocs

Thousands upon thousands of people have made Theseus one of the top selling puzzle games in the app store. Be the next to discover it!

Be sure to also check out Theseus HD for the iPad. The same game you love for the iPhone but with a fantastic new graphics engine and more levels!

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

"With a set of superb levels and the kind of gameplay that can entice you for either hourly marathons or quick-minute fixes, Theseus is easily one of the best puzzlers available on the iPhone, and that´s no myth." --Pocketgamer: 9/10 Gold Award

Reviews from the App Store:

* "This may be the best game I have purchased so far."

* "This app is one of the few gems around the app store."

* "Challenging, highly addictive, but also easy to take out and play in small chunks of time, this is the perfect mobile app game."

* "The game is extremely awesome and fun to play. Unlike many other games this was actually worth the money I had paid to obtain it."

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Based on an original concept from puzzle-master Robert Abbott, Theseus is a refreshing twist on the traditional maze. As Theseus, you must reach the exit of the labyrinth while avoiding the terrible Minotaur. The Minotaur takes two steps for every one of yours, but follows a strict set of rules that you can use to outsmart him.

The Theseus game engine provides complete control over move history, allowing you to undo all moves. You´ll need it, since outmaneuvering the Minotaur can be quite a difficult task. Each level will reward you with that "Ah-hah!" moment when you discover the trick to trapping the Minotaur in the various nooks and crannies of the maze.

This package provides over 85 levels of increasing difficulty. Can you conquer them all? Only the most experienced navigators have been able to solve the final set.

Search Youtube for "Theseus iPhone" to watch a video tutorial.

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Features:
* Over 85 Levels of increasingly difficult layouts
* Complete and unlimited undo of move history - including "smart undo"
* Automatically restores your current puzzle if the game is interrupted
* Gesture control system allows you to swipe or tap on the map in the direction you want to move.
* Level completion state is saved - can you solve them all?

This application is developed in full cooperation with Robert Abbott from http://www.logicmazes.com

Some people may know this game as Mummy Maze, but did you know that Mummy Maze was developed as a knockoff of the original Theseus?
