Readdle, a pioneer in iPhone and iPad application development since 2007, celebrates today its third anniversary. In August 2007, Readdle was the first to provide iPhone users a document reader and attachment saver a full year before the official iTunes App Store had launched. In 2010, Readdle still continues to expand upon the iOS platform by releasing new products for Apple iPhone users and opening potential to a growing Apple iPad audience.

“Over the last three years, Readdle has grown strong notwithstanding the many challenges on this emerging platform,” said Igor Zhadanov, Readdle co-founder. “Our success is based on a single platform focus—enabling iPhone owners to be productive and efficient on the go—and a great mutual collaboration between the peers in our team with an individual approach to each user,” he explained. “This serves our company and our customers very well.”

Bulkypix Unleashes Snake Galaxy HD On The iPad

28 Jul

The most stunningly beautiful and playable Snake game gets even better on the iPad in HD.

IMG_0006

France and USA – July 27, 2010 – Bulkypix, award winning iPhone and iPad games publisher today announced that following the successful launch of Snake Galaxy on the iPhone, the game has been ported to iPad and will soon be available on the App Store.

IMG_0008

Snake Galaxy is a three dimensional version of the classic Snake game, that has players slithering around beautifully rendered 3D planets. Your goal is simple-consume as many jewels as possible before you crash and burn. You direct the snake with your finger, guiding it toward the goodies while avoiding obstacles like giant letters, like on the gorgeous newspaper planet. With each jewel you consume, your “snake” grows a little longer, making it harder for you to avoid obstacles-and your tail.

There are point thresholds you must reach to unlock the next planet. In order to reach those point thresholds, you must eat the goodies in your path as fast as you can. There is a multiplier bar at the bottom of the screen that refills every time you feed your snake. But you must be careful not to let the bar zeroes out. If it does, you will have to start the multiplier chain all over from scratch. There are large diamonds that appear from time to time that are worth big points. Grabbing these before they vanish is critical for making it to the next stage.

The iPad makes the movement in the game feel natural and the controls make the game play beautifully accurate; you will salivate at the 3D environment of this game in motion. Snake Galaxy also features a great soundtrack, but you can listen to your own music while playing.

“The Guinness World Records 2010 Gamer’s Edition has just declared that the mobile version of Snake is the most played game on the planet,” said Vincent Dondaine, COO of Bulkypix. “Snake Galaxy for the iPad is beautiful. The design of the 3D worlds is stunning. Different planets all have different types of fun obstacles to pass by, keeping you wondering what’s next. You’ll enjoy yourself for hours.”

The version for iPad will be released soon on iTunes.

-       Completely reload a power in one go and release your divine punishment on the humans.

The Overview of  BABEL RISING
In BABEL RISING, you are God! And from the heights of sky, you see that men are agitating themselves… and building a tower. A tower? To climb up to your heights? How arrogant and impudent they are… Time has come to teach your creatures how small they are and how great you are! You will have to use of all your divine spells, and to prevent them from building the tower.

The game offers a new challenge: slowing down as much as possible the building of the Tower of Babel. Humans are flooding the bottom of the screen and bringing stones. Step by step, they build the stairs and go higher and higher. You have at your disposal six different spells. With the “finger of God” (actually yours), always available, you can crush one human at once. But this spell is not powerful enough to contain the flow of humans. You must then implement more powerful spells, but the loading time is also becoming longer and longer: lightning, tornado, fire from heaven, Tsunami and finally earthquake will have to be used in good coordination and wisely. How long could you hold for humans?

DIVINE mode allows you to trigger NEW POWERS on the heretics:
