Bite-Sized New Build of Addictive Puzzle Game Lets Users Play from Their Wrist
NEW YORK CITY – April 23, 2015 – Mobile games developer FreshPlanet, makers of the smash hit SongPop, today announced that brain-bending puzzler BoxPop is among the first available games playable now on Apple Watch. BoxPop is a fun and addictive puzzle game that pits the player against hundreds of increasingly challenging levels of boxes to pop and navigate, all from the convenience of the player’s wrist. The title is available to download now for free on the App Store for Apple Watch.
BoxPop on Apple Watch lets players engage with the iPhone/iPad versions of the title in quick, accessible bursts. The game will feature a slew of new content exclusive to the device, including daily puzzles tailor-made for the new platform and more than 20 new achievements that are attainable only with Apple Watch. All rewards earned on Apple Watch are all tracked in the iPhone/iPad versions of BoxPop, creating a seamless cross-platform experience.
In BoxPop, users are challenged to pop boxes in L-shaped paths, similar to a knight piece in traditional chess, and see if they can make their way through entire grids filled with increasingly challenging shapes – elephants, VHS tapes, castles, and more. BoxPop is just the first title that FreshPlanet, a team with extensive experience and a proven track record for launching groundbreaking apps on new mobile platforms, has planned for Apple Watch.
“We’re thrilled to be one of the apps available for Apple Watch at launch,” said FreshPlanet CEO, Mathieu Nouzareth. “With its unprecedented ease of access, Apple Watch is the perfect platform to expand the BoxPop experience on-the-go. We look forward to continuing to work with Apple to find new ways to bring users creative, engaging content across the Apple ecosystem.”
