IUGO Adds New Table to Freeballin’

IUGOVancouverIUGO Mobile Entertainment is proud to release their newest Freeballin’ update – a new pinball table based on their ToyBots franchise. The table features artwork from ToyBots, and brings the number of table maps up to five.Freeballin Toybot

I’ve been playing Freeballin’ since its release, and the game is truly fun to play. Each of the levels features highly detailed artwork and in-level missions to achieve. Each of these missions involves getting the ball to go where needed and hit specific targets, such as crushing cars. All of the level maps vary in setting from an inner-city locale to tropical jungles and a colourful dreamscape table. In true game play fashion, there are boss battles to win and high scores to make higher. The audio track for this game is energetic and fits each table perfectly. The only problem I’ve had with the game at all is sometimes pressing the screen a little hard for flipper control, and I keep waiting for the “TILT” message to light up.

There are three game modes to choose from for each map – Score Attack, which is exactly what it says – get the highest score you can within a limited number of turns. For some real frenzied play, the Time Attack mode challenges the player to get to a set score level within a limited amount of time. My favourite mode though is Adventure Challenge, which involves collecting items during gameplay.

Available at the iTunes App Store for the iPhone and iPod Touch, Freeballin’ is very high on entertainment value at its current price of only 1.99.

IUGO will be one of the many Canadian studios attending E3, and then they will be at WWDC in San Francisco. IUGO will be hosting the iPhone Developer’s Union Part 2 at WWDC.
