Popular Ball-Balancing Game To Puzzle Nintendo DSi Owners
San Mateo, California – March 21, 2011 – Shapo, the popular PC casual game in which players must balance differently-weighted balls, is now available for the Nintendo DSiWare™ service in the Nintendo DSi™ Shop in both North America and Europe. Published by TikGames, Shapo is available for 500 Nintendo DSi Points™.
“Shapo isn’t quite as simple as it seems,” said Anatoly Tikhman, Founder and CEO of TikGames. “Players have to balance balls of different weights on a platform, and also need to take into account how power-ups and magic balls will change the playing field.”
Perfect for playing during a few free minutes or even for hours, Shapo challenges players to keep a platform balanced as they place groups of balls of different weights and shapes on it. As entire lines are completed, they clear, giving players points and more room to maneuver. Power-ups like the “line bomb” and “slow scale” give players the chance to ease the load, while magic balls bestow bonus points and special powers. Shapo provides a well-balanced ton of content, including more than 150 levels across Challenge and Puzzle modes, for a featherweight price.
Shapo has been rated E for Everyone by the ESRB and PEGI 3 for ages 3 and up.
