Kick'n'Mix Ltd Brings Soccer-Themed Puzzle Game for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch

June 02, 2010


Kick'n'Mix has introduced the first edition of its innovative, soccer-themed puzzle game for iPhone (News - Alert), iPad and iPod touch.

The newly launched Kick'n'Mix: World Championship 2010 Edition is a simple tile puzzle game, where the user can swap and rotate nine tiles to reassemble a shuffled pattern.

However, there are nearly a hundred billion wrong answers and the pattern only lines up one way.

'We've created a fun game that looks easy, but can actually keep you puzzling over it for hours!" inventor Russell Pointon said.

'We first made the game tiles out of cardboard for a promotional giveaway item, but having seen how passionate the people who'd played it became, the opportunity to make this puzzle available to millions of iPhone users was too good to pass up', he explained.

Sixty-four different puzzles to solve are present in the new mobile game. Also, there are 32 'training' levels with simple, bold designs that capture each nation's pride. Those puzzles serve as a quick-to-solve introduction to the game, or as part of a speed challenge with online leaderboards.

'This game fits the mobile format perfectly, and the iPhone's high quality touchscreen let us make a tactile game with striking visuals', lead programmer Chris Newman, said.

'The inclusion of the the easier levels means you can pick up the phone and play a complete game in under a minute - and then immediately share your score with friends on Facebook (News - Alert)', he added.

In related news, Disney Interactive Studios will publish The Sorcerer's Apprentice video game, inspired by the upcoming feature film 'The Sorcerer's Apprentice' from Walt Disney Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer Films, exclusively for Nintendo DS.
