LiquidBits' Toppal takes the social gaming experience to the next level with a game-play so real and engaging...
Boston, MA (PRWEB) February 15, 2011
LiquidBits, a producer of 3-D games with intuitive, natural interfaces, today released a building-block game specifically designed for the multi-touch interface of the iPad and iPhone 4. A 3-D building game, Toppal™ (pronounced “topple”) recreates the childhood fun of building and destroying structures within a virtual, multiplayer environment. Innovative, never-before-seen, play techniques combine with smooth, accurate controls and stunning detailed design created by Hollywood motion-picture animation experts. Players enjoy an interactive experience that goes beyond the constraints of creating real-world towers (i.e Jenga ®) with features like hyper-realistic physics and better-than-real 'structural re-arrangement' and demolition.
"LiquidBits' Toppal takes the social gaming experience to the next level with a game-play so real and engaging - my kids and I are hooked and it is now our family's favorite game," says Sundar Subramaniam, Chairman of IBCC and a board member of 38 Studios.
Toppal, the first game in the Balancin' Act series, utilizes advanced physics to alter the behavior of game objects, making each game different. Testing showed that players who take the one minute interactive walk-through, quickly learn the intuitive touch-screen gestures needed for selecting, removing, and placing blocks. Then scores increase as players improve their skill and towers grow in size. Games are saved manually or automatically, so players can suspend game play as often as desired, or make moves even with only a few seconds to play. Advanced multiplayer features of the game will be available only in the upcoming full-featured version of Toppal.
"We created the Balancin' Act games series to bring high-end animated movie experience to mobile and social games. Toppal is the first game in the series with several exciting concepts in the pipeline. Our objective is to introduce an enhanced social experience connecting friends and family across mobile, tablets and social networks such as Facebook. I am excited to announce that Toppal Lite is now available globally in twenty-two countries," says Haggai Goldfarb, founder and CEO of LiquidBits.
Pricing and Availability
Toppal HD Lite for iPad, and Toppal Lite for iPhone 4 with a limited features set, is available today free of charge on the iTunes App store. The full-featured cross-platform version, will follow shortly after.
