Core Concepts releases Rich Diamond 1.3 for iPhone and iPod Touch

    Core Concepts Inc. today announced Rich Diamond 1.3 an update to their puzzle/strategy game for iPhone and iPod Touch. Rich Diamond features 335 levels, each ranked from easy to challenging.

    In Rich Diamond, each puzzle is stand-alone and can be solved in any order. Players use their wits and cunning to maneuver around various perils to reach their goal, and have as much time as needed to plan their strategy and make a move. The primary goal of each puzzle is to collect all of the gems, then reach the exit. Each puzzle has a number of traps that provide the solving challenge.

    The game offers two display modes: perspective and top-down. The player can instantly switch between the two modes, even while in the middle of playing a level. The puzzles are not timed, and the creatures in the game move only when the player moves. This allows the player to ponder actions rather than forcing them to move without thinking. If a mistake is made while solving the puzzle, the Undo button can be used to erase one or more moves. This eliminates the frustration of having to start over on a puzzle because of a simple mistake.

    Feature Highlights:
    * Each Puzzle is stand-alone; solve in any order
    * Puzzles are not timed
    * Undo without having to restart a Puzzle
    * Two display modes; perspective and top-down
    * Compelling UI and Graphics

    System Requirements:

    * iPhone or iPod Touch 2.0 or later

    Pricing and Availability:
    Rich Diamond 1.3 for iPhone normally sells for $2.99 (USD) and available exclusively through Apple's App Store. Core Concepts is offering a limited-time sale at $0.99. There is also a free, Lite version available which offers 35 levels.
