Babo Crash Hits the App Store Today

Playbrains Launches Its Mobile Debut, Breathing New Life into the Match-3 Puzzler Genre

Playbrains, an independent game development studio, today announced the release of Babo Crash for the iPhone, iPod Touch and Android mobile devices. The game takes the tried-and-true match-three formula and adds new levels of depth with fast-paced action, destructive power-ups and evolving objectives. A free demo of the frenetic puzzler can be found inside Playbrain’s indie hit Madballs In…Babo:Invasion on Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/25710/

A reinvention of the ubiquitous gem-swapping puzzle game, the game excels with explosive action that requires lightning-quick decision making. Babo Crash features native support for the iPad, so day-one Apple tablet users will enjoy even more eye-popping graphics – rather than simply up-scaling, Babo Crash was re-engineered for the iPad’s vibrant screen and designed to take advantage of the device’s advanced hardware. The independent game development studio released the critically-acclaimed Madballs In…Babo: Invasion for Xbox Live Arcade and Steam, and are now crashing into the mobile market.

Babo Crash starts out with familiar gem-swapping gameplay, but doesn’t stay in that comfort zone for long. As players progress they’ll utilize steerable hero characters with their own distinct special abilities. Then it ramps up the intensity one level at a time, adding challenges like real-time enemy combat, destructive powerups, chain reactions and evolving objectives. Even better, players can actually rotate the screen to shift the direction of gravity – an important part of detonating bombs and ridding the battlefield of obstacles.

BaboCrash brings frenetic match-three action and tons of fun features to the iPhone, iPad and Android phones:

  • Addictive, high tempo match-three puzzle action

  • 21 levels to ramp up the madness

  • Unleash heroic abilities to destroy tons of gems at once

  • Vibrant visual style with over-the-top special effects

  • Multiple control schemes suite various styles of play

  • Rack up huge scores in Overtime, a hyper-speed bonus round

  • Strategically rotate your device to control collapses and navigate bombs

  • Combo/multiplier system - the faster you match, the higher you score

  • Leaderboards and Achievements via OpenFeint

Babo Crash is out now for iPhone, iPod Touch and Android mobile devices for an unbeatable $0.99. To download it for Apple devices, visit: http://itunes.com/app/babocrash

The iPad version will be on the App Store when the device launches, April 3. For additional details, visit: http://www.playbrains.com/babocrash
