Battle of Puppets for iPhone Adds OpenFeint and is Now Only $0.99!

Lugo, Spain --- February 18, 2010 --- Small Wonders S.L. has just made their fascinatingly odd and original, linear strategy game for the iPhone and iPod touch even better. With OpenFeint leaderboard and achievement integration, as well as an improved AI and harder difficulty levels, Small Wonders has added some of the most requested features to Battle of Puppets. Also, in celebration of the update, and as a thank you to all its dedicated fans, Battle of Puppets is now only $.99 for the next week!

Touting a vibrant artistic style, Battle of Puppets combines beautiful graphics, the hallowed art of puppetry, and ruthless combat! Its players are cast as silent puppeteers, who must strategically control their hordes of marionette minions as they battle across a series of 22 American theatres on their quest for Broadway acclaim. All 22 theatres have custom operatic backdrops of famous landmarks,and now each one has a global leaderboard through OpenFeint.

To destroy the opposing forces and win the affection of the crowd, players must travel across the country, tactfully building units, upgrading their castle and outposts, and casting spells or “professions” by using written gestures. As the campaigns progress, players can unlock all 6 professions, learning to repair their troops, mind control the enemy, boo the opposition, and more!

Players choose one of 5 operas that vary significantly in terms of relative strengths and weaknesses, unit types, building speeds, and most interestingly, how they are affected by changing weather conditions. Given the smarter AI and harder difficulty settings in the latest update, choosing the best route across the country based on weather patterns is just one of the compelling strategic decisions players must make in Battle of Puppets! Also, with a powerful race to unlock, players can fortify themselves to take on the hard mode campaign and complete over 25 achievements (including some secret ones to uncover).

Juan Diego Gallego, CEO of Small Wonders, says, “our team is extremely pleased that the community has responded so well to the look and feel of Battle of Puppets, and we’re dedicated to making BOP a more fun and beautiful game for them!” Small Wonders’ commitment to iteration has been evident so far. An all new tutorial system was implemented just one week after launch, and now the latest update adds AI improvements, achievements, and new leaderboards, less than 3 weeks later!

New Price:

To celebrate the update, Battle of Puppets is now available for $.99 for a limited time! “We want everyone to enjoy BOP, and particularly given all the new features we’ve added, we'd love to inspire many new puppeteers” says Juan Diego.

With added leaderboards, tougher opponents, and tons of achievements, the game-play is just as intuitive to pick up, but the strategy is more complex, scores are fun to share, and it’s all still a pleasure to behold!
