KAMPO Interactive today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of Balance HD for iOS, its realistic 3D labyrinth game where players navigate one or more balls through a wooden labyrinth. Balance puts a new spin on the classic labyrinth game genre by eliminating holes to fall through and putting the emphasis on multi-ball coordination on various puzzles.

Like the original wooden board game, Balance HD requires excellent hand-eye coordination skills to steer the ball through the maze.

Instead, players are required to control multiple balls with different sizes to their given destinations around walls, springs, and magnets as quickly as possible as they try to beat the world and national record times on each level.

Balance HD requires a variety of skills to progress through all the 100+ levels including:
  1. Coordination
  2. Precision
  3. Puzzle solving
  4. Creativity
  5. Timing
  6. Speed
  7. Concentration
  8. Balance
Balance HD comes with a variety of setting options for players to select. In addition to choosing between playing in landscape or portrait mode, players can calibrate and control tilt sensitivity. Graphics can also be displayed in 2D, 3D, or holographic mode.

Balance HD allows players to view their profile which includes their game progress, achievements earned, global and national ranking, and performance statistics. Progress graphs also report daily history of finished levels, global rank, national rank, and country rank. Players can also view replays of levels within the game and share video replays of their best times on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and Email. An easy-to-access world and national record news feed is available within the game with instant replays for extra inspiration on improving the records further.

"Balance HD is a simple yet challenging labyrinth game for the fans of this genre," says Tamas Antal of KAMPO Interactive. "The multi-ball coordination requires great focus and the opportunity to compete globally and nationally makes this game even more fun. Balance is the perfect pick for labyrinth fans looking for more addictive maze madness."

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Balance released - motion controlled PC game proves to be addictive

Budapest, Hungary - Aug 9th, 2007 - Kampo Interactive today announces the release of Balance, a PC game that can not only be controlled by the mouse, but can also be played with a handheld motion sensor or by simply tilting a laptop. The game utilizes the upcoming ActionXL PC Motion Controller - a handheld USB motion sensing game controller - and the tilt sensors built into certain manufacturers' laptops like the Lenovo(TM) Thinkpad(R) series that sense when the machine is dropped to protect its hard disk.

Balance is reminiscent of the wooden board game Labyrinth where players steer a ball through a maze to a target. Simple to learn yet difficult to master, Balance, requires players to tilt a playfield to guide one or more balls simultaneously to multiple targets through increasingly difficult 3D obstacle courses. Players can post and share their times over the internet along with a recording that can be replayed by other players to see how they managed to do it.

The full version of Balance features over 75 levels with continuous level updates and will be widely available on major web portals via the distribution of Oberon Media.

Balance to Win, a trial tournament now closed has seen players competing for the best times on each level to win the game for FREE, which resulted in remarkable performances beside intense addictiveness. Further tournaments will be organized and announced later at www.balance-game.com with various prizes to win.
