Following the success of the top 100 Mac board games Mahjongg Platinum Evolution and Mahjongg Staxx, we're pleased to announce the release of Hexagon Mahjongg HD for iPad®. Our first tablet mahjongg game, Hexagon Mahjongg HD offers a fun twist on regular mahjongg with the introduction of six-sided tiles. Unlike regular rectangular tiles, at least three sides of the hexagonal tile must be free before a match can be made. Though similar in gameplay to traditional mahjongg solitaire, even the most seasoned mahjongg players will find Hexagon Mahjongg HD offers a unique strategic challenge.

Developed for tablets, Hexagon Mahjongg HD features an easy-to-use touch interface, detailed art, over a dozen exotic tile sets and a huge collection of unique layouts. Plus, with four game modes, players can easily choose their favorite way to play: Classic Bonus, where power-up tiles add to the fun; Quickmatch, a fast, fun matching game where only tiles that have matches are visible; Memory, where you can put your wits to the test; and Classic mode, which lets you sit back and match tiles at your own pace. Available now for the iPad® on the App Store in the Games category, Hexagon Mahjongg HD offers a truly new way to play mahjongg.

We're pleased to announce the launch of Time Chronicles™: The Missing Mona Lisa, a new hidden object adventure currently available from the leading online marketplace for casual games, Big Fish. Our most immersive and fully-featured HOG title thus far, Time Chronicles: The Missing Mona Lisa is coming soon for Mac and iPad and features pure hidden object fun with a unique twist—each hidden object scene in the present features a parallel scene to search in the past.

In The Missing Mona Lisa, the famous painting has been stolen and scattered through history by the mysterious “Time Chameleon.” Players search scenes for “time traces” left by the Chameleon, then travel backwards in time to the exact same location in the past. The mystery may take players from Da Vinci’s workshop during the present, to the master’s studio in the Renaissance; from the Tower of London today to the same cell during the Middle Ages; from a treasure room in modern Moscow to the same room during the reign of the last Tsar. Featuring 20 exotic locations around the world and extraordinary eras throughout history, there’s no telling where the chase through time will end.

Time Chronicles: The Missing Mona Lisa is designed for fans of classic HO games, focusing on fast gameplay, rich visuals, fun mini-games and thousands of hidden objects rather than a complicated story. “As a family-friendly game company, it's important to us to create apps for all ages,” says Selectsoft VP Edgar Chen. “Time Chronicles brings back the classic play of true hidden object games that the whole family can enjoy, with a unique time-travel twist.” The Missing Mona Lisa has a fun, accessible adventure storyline, as players assume the role of Chief Investigator of Interpol's Environmental Crimes Unit, assigned to track down the thief and recover the painting.
