***Game Description***

Using the multi-touch controls of the iPhone, players will take control of the Norbs; tiny nanobots with the sole purpose of conquering the mazes and puzzles which make up their world.

The Norbs can change in size and colour by separating apart and merging with one another. The player achieves this by ‘pinching’ the screen - a crucial maneuver from which the game derives its namesake. Players will be familiar with performing this action in other iPhone applications, such as Google Maps and Safari.

• Intuitive, enjoyable puzzle-solving in a colourful yet simple package
• Stylised visuals complement purposeful design
• Unique gameplay centred around multi-touch interface
• Suitable for all, from gaming beginners to veterans
• 16 free levels
• Original music and sound effects from award-winning, talented composers

Pinch is Coatsink Software’s (http://www.coatsink.com) debut game. It has been produced as part of a fellowship with the Institute of Digital Innovation (http://www.digitalcityfellowships.org), which is based at the University of Teesside in England. The game garnered interest as an inventive concept for the puzzle genre.

The project has involved international efforts from the likes of Finnish SFX designer Tapio Liukkonen of Kaamossound (http://www.kaamossound.com), and the award-winning London-based composer Vincent Webb (http://www.vincewebb.co.uk), as well as mentoring from various industry veterans, developers and experts.
