Catch The Candy Coming to iPhone in May

’Catch the Candy’, puts you in control of a hungry little fuzzy creature as he uses his extendible grappling tongue to hunt down his candy.  But it’s not so easy to reach, as he’s not able to move around on his own.  He’ll have to use his tongue to latch onto objects in each of the game’s 53 stages, to get close enough to the candy to draw it to him.

 

With real-time physics and gameplay that’s both easy to pick up yet hard to put down, Catch the Candy will test you on each stage, as you try to reach your beloved treat in the fewest moves possible.  The game also features full Openfeint and Game Center support, along with Facebook leaderboards so that you can check your ranking against other players.


Burn it All coming to iOS end of April

Burn It All gives you control at the tip of your finger of three different little Flames as they venture through over 100 stages of brain-rattling puzzles, from the molten depths beneath the Earth’s crust to the Top of the World. They’ll use their unique fiery abilities to burn through all sorts of objects, avoiding water and gas, dealing with underground monsters, blowing things up, and even putting time in a loop to make their way back home, where their father, The Sun, awaits!

You’ll use clever strategies to burn through everything on your way, swiveling around until only smoke and ashes remain. With each of the Flames’ Pyro-Powers, there’s nothing you can’t burn through!

Burn it All also has a number of terrific features, including the ability to log in to Facebook to share your high scores and unlock over 40 Achievements for bragging rights. Openfeint and Game Center leaderboards will keep you on edge, competing with the best out there!
