Freeverse and Strange Flavour Release Plank for iPhone

A puzzle game based on the iPhone's advanced accelerometer technology

Freeverse today announced the release of Plank, the steampunk styled, tilt-based puzzle game for the iPhone and iPod touch. Plank was developed by Strange Flavour, creators of the Apple Design Award winning ToySight and best selling Airburst and Airburst Extreme games.

Plank is the first iPhone puzzle game where the gameplay is based almost exclusively on the accelerometer. Tilt the steam powered hydraulic plank to catch colored marbles and roll them to match each other as they fall. Too many marbles and the plank will collapse under the weight, so you have to match them fast. Watch out for all the amazing power-ups and specials, including the "Shake" smart bomb! Just as you’re starting to panic, shake the device and one of your limited number of Shakes will destroy a whole line of marbles. Other power-ups drop more marbles, make everything faster, slower or even make the plank slippery.

“Plank is an ideal game for the iPhone”, said Aaron Fothergill, Managing Director of Strange Flavour. “It seems easy and casual at first, but a few levels into the "Nnnaaarrrgh!" difficulty game and you’ll be twitching!”.

Plank is immediately available for $1.99 on the iTunes App Store.
