Kent, Washington – A new update for Puffer Train Loader HD has just arrived on the App Store. Puffer Train Loader HD premiered during PAX-Prime at the Seattle Indies Expo. At that time, this fun iPad game could be played in both English and French. The version 1.1 update, available today, now brings German and Spanish language support to the game. This update also includes expanded Help allowing new players to quickly learn to play and begin enjoying the game.
Puffer Train Loader HD supports both a shared game mode, letting you play with a friend, and a 1-on-1 mode where you match your box loading skills against a computer opponent. This casual iPad game was inspired by our love of the classic game “Dots & Boxes” and development of the iOS App began following several rousing games played on a restaurant kid’s menu while waiting for dinner. Game play is simple – yet challenging. New Lines must be built from existing Dots. Lines are added to the game board by touching between two Dots. The player whose line completes a box adds that box to their game total. As each board is completed, and the train car filled, the player building the most boxes wins!
“I Love This Game!”
When we premiered Puffer Train Loader HD at the Seattle Indies Expo, we were surprised by a theme we heard over and over again from grown adults and hard-core gamers alike. When they saw the game running we heard, “Oh! I know this game. I played it when I was a kid. I love This Game!” We created Puffer Train Loader HD as a Free game with no Ads and no in-App purchases to allow anyone with an iPad the ability to recreate the sheer joy of childhood game play once again, and perhaps share that joy they remember with the kids in their life.
Puffer Train Loader HD contains a 5×5 game board that can be played with a friend or against a computer opponent. The 5×5 board provides larger Lines and Dots making easier game play for little fingers. There is also a 7×7 game board where players will find their computer opponent to be a bit more challenging.
Puffer Train Loader HD Pro:
We created an extended version of our game, Puffer Train Loader HD Pro, for players who want even more game challenges! The extended version provides all of the game play of Puffer Train Loader HD, plus adds the ability for up to 4 players to share a game together on a 7×7 game board. The Pro version also provides 12 “challenge games” – each one a partially finished game board that can be completed either with friends or while playing against the computer. Additionally the Pro version allows you to adjust your computer opponent’s skill to different levels for every game – with levels ranging from easy to expert. This feature provides hours of challenging game play for players of all skill levels.
Future Game Developments:
Our version 1.1 update now brings German and Spanish language support to this fun casual game. But there is still more to come! Future development plans include expanding the game’s language support to include Japanese and creating new versions of both Puffer Train Loader HD and Puffer Train Loader HD Pro to make this fun game available on the iPhone.
