Hemmed In 1.0 is now available

A collaboration between the boys at Glucode and the girls at Rubio Communications brings an exciting new puzzle game, Hemmed In, released at the App Store on 2nd April 2010. Hemmed In is based on the classic puzzle game most commonly known as Dots and Boxes. This pencil and paper game was first published in 1889 by Édouard Lucas, but has now been created into a Bluetooth multiplayer iPhone and iPod touch game.

Taking the theme of sewing and running with it, Hemmed In is a fun game of strategy that is all about taking it in turns to join the buttons and beat your opponent by closing a square before they can cotton on! ‘Hem in’ a square to win a point, with the game winner being the player with the most points once the entire grid has been filled. Challenge levels are also included for the user to decide how tough they want it when playing against the computer.

The perfect time-killer while you’re waiting for the train, on hold on the phone or when you just need to zone out. You’ll have loads of fun ‘stitching up’ your opponent in Hemmed In. A fun scoring system has been implemented that will challenge gamers to keep coming back to try to beat their top scores. Ideal for busy people who like to pick up their phone, play for a few minutes and then get back to their lives. Plus, gamers can tweet their scores for bragging rights.
