Vilnius, Lithuania (PressExposure) January 04, 2008 -- TERMINAL Studio has released its free online version of BrickShooter, a top of the line puzzle game. The game runs inside a browser and supports all major web browsers and operating systems including Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and the iPhone. This version is called "BrickShooter.online".
BrickShooter.online is a Web 2.0 application built using the AJAX technology, that's why it can run even on the Apple iPhone. The game automatically detects iPhone and adjusts the game graphics to fit the screen size. This is one of the first computer games released for the iPhone. BrickShooter is based on a fresh, original idea. Its simple rules create a great variety of different game situations, much like chess. The game proved suitable for people of all ages; good for children in developing their creative thinking processes, useful for grown-ups to play during lunch times and perfect for seniors to relax yet keep their minds sharp.
The goal of the game is to gain points by joining bricks into groups of three or more of the same color causing them to disappear. The bricks are sent into the field by shooting them from the borders around the field. "It's a game where the rules are simple so anyone can play it, but getting a high score takes a lot of thought. I've been playing it for over two years without any loss of interest because I keep realizing new strategies that push my scores higher," says one player, which nicely sums up the comments from hundreds of others. The ability to smoothly change the difficulty level lets you balance between challenging and relaxing. For example, with five colors (the easiest level) you climb level by level until you are unable to solve the next one. With 10 colors (the most difficult) it is a challenge to pass even the first level. Even if you get stuck on a level your fun continues while you accumulate points. Completing a level simply gives you a bonus score. BrickShooter.online's unique feature "BrickShooter live" allows to see who is playing BrickShooter online right now and what is their score, level, and game status. The high scores table is dynamically updated as players progress in the game.
The game is free. Additional features such as ability to save and load games, or to have an own online profile require membership. The membership monthly fee is $3.
Offline BrickShooter versions are available for Windows, Mac OS X, Windows Mobile, and Palm OS.
