Pleasanton, California – Independent developer, 4 Pyramids today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of Poker Puzzle Game 3.0, the important update to their entertaining poker puzzler for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices. Players drop their tiles in an attempt to fill vertical and horizontal lines on an 8 X 8 grid to create high-scoring 5-card poker hands. The better the hand, the higher the score.
Poker Puzzle Game is a cross between Poker and Tetris. Players must arrange differently shaped tiles on a grid, in order to create high scoring poker hands. When a horizontal or vertical line is completed, the best 5-card hand from the 8 tiles is ranked. The game ends when there are no longer any possible moves. While players can enjoy solo action, thanks to Game Center integration, players can also play against friends, family, and even other players from around the world, by attempting to beat their high score and claw their way to the top of the worldwide leaderboard.
“Poker has long been a popular game, enjoyed by players from around the world. Tetris is also a universally loved puzzler, and is still enjoyed by players on both mobile and desktop devices, despite the fact it was first released over 30 years ago,” says Munish Singla, a founding partner of 4 Pyramids. “Our developers had the bright idea of merging the two types of games to create an exciting and challenging game that can also be enjoyed by players everywhere.
