Hamilton Developers Set to Rival Biggest Games

Hamilton Developers Set to Rival Biggest Games on Apple's App Store


A small home based game studio in Hamilton has successfully launched their debut iPhone and iPad game, Draw the Line with all the right ingredients to compete with hits like Cut The Rope and Angry Birds on Apple's App Store.

Draw the Line is a casual puzzle game of the highest quality in which the player draws colorful lines using unique types of paint to guide, bounce, zoom, and even portal a rubber-band ball to the main character Milton.

Draw the Line provides 75 unique and challenging levels across 3 chapters, with more chapters planned for development. The game employs the familiar and successful 3-star model from other great games on the App Store. The difficulty of the game has been carefully designed to allow children and casual gamers to pass each level with ease while still providing a satisfying challenge for the 3-star addicts.

Exclusive and original music was composed and scored by US-based up-and-coming musician P.SUS, and the cutscene artwork was created by talented artist and friend of the company, Maxine Scoble.

"There's nothing more satisfying as a game developer than when someone tells you they love your game, and we've had exceptional feedback from people so far." says Jeremy Bell, co-creator of the game. "From self-proclaimed game addicts to older generations who say they've never used an 'iTouch' in their life, everyone seems to find something to love about Draw the Line". "We've even been approached by Los Angeles based start-up 'Moonshark' as a potential partner developer for future games, and considering who they are and that they're looking to pair 'the best independent game developers' with some of Hollywood's biggest names, we're pretty stoked with the opportunity."

Draw the Line is available worldwide exclusively in Apple's App Store in the games category on iPhone and iPod touch for $1.29, and on the iPad for $2.59. Free versions providing introductory levels are also available.
