Unlike understanding the concept of yin yang philosophy, playing “Mr. Yin & Ms. Yang” is very easy. This game is suitable for those who want to stimulate brain nerves with fun in a short period of time.

About “Mr. Yin & Ms. Yang”
A destined couple, Mr. Yin and Ms. Yang, got lost on their way to the wedding. They were dragged into two parallel universes and are now being trapped in a dark world and a bright world, respectively. Both of their worlds are deeply interrelated just as the concept of yin yang philosophy tells us.

They need to find the exit that can lead them to the same universe. Your mission is to lead them to the same exit in each level. Can you help them out to come back to the real world so that they can get married? There are fifty exits waiting for you!

Features:
50 well designed levels, more levels may be added later on
Retro style graphics
Unique puzzle system
Simple control
Expected release date: August, 2010
Expected price: $0.99

In Virtual City, players build and develop the city of their dreams, whether suburban utopia or bustling metropolis.

As their cities grow, players can produce and transport goods, create mass-transit systems, and entertain their city’s residents with parks, cinemas, stadiums and events.
