Renowned game and puzzle manufacturer, ThinkFun Inc., is proud to
announce the release of Rush Hour for the new Apple iPad. Rush Hour
for iPad is the latest addition to the suite of Rush Hour apps
available across a wide range of mobile platforms. The new iPad app is
designed to take advantage of iPad’s larger screen and Multi-Touch user
interface to enhance the play experience. The universal app costs $2.99
while existing Rush Hour for iPhone and iPod touch customers will
receive free upgrades.
"It’s fitting for Rush Hour to be one of the first apps launched on
the iPad," said Bill Ritchie, CEO and Co-Founder of ThinkFun. "Rush
Hour is the original sliding block logic puzzle, and it is the
granddaddy of all the ‘beginner to expert’ logic puzzles now on the
market. The iPad is a genuine game changer, and we are thrilled to
again be at the beginning of a new era in game playing."
The Rush Hour iPhone App has received rave customer reviews on iTunes
for its clever challenges and intuitive navigation. For the iPad,
ThinkFun has completely rebuilt the game graphics to take advantage of
the iPad’s innovative Multi-Touch interface and large screen.
Rush Hour for iPad is packed with features, such as:
— The free application has 35 original challenges and the $2.99 full version has 2500 Challenges — Challenges ranging from EASY to EXPERT will entertain novice players as well as test advance players with super-hard expert levels.
— Perfect Score — Rush Hour tracks the distance that players move to get out of the traffic jams and compares it to the shortest path possible.
You win when you get the Red Car out the Exit Gate… but you can’t claim challenge mastery until you tally a perfect score.
— Hint Button — If you feel a little lost and want a nudge in the right direction, you’ll find a HINT button ready for you to press. Again and again, if you want.
— Solve Button — No matter where they are in their challenge, the solve button will show players how to solve it, and then put them back where they left off so players can learn and complete the challenge themselves.
— Multi-language — In addition to English, Rush Hour is now available in German, Spanish and French.
"Rush Hour is a game that should be in every home, on every cell
phone and on every computer," says Liz Deakin, Director of Marketing and
Sales at ThinkFun. "With digital distribution being the platform of
the future, it was a company priority for ThinkFun to quickly introduce
the universal Rush Hour application to the iPad market."
