Dreamkind Releases Frankenstein Matchmaker, a Monster of a Word Game for the iPhone and iPad(August 04, 2011)
Englewood, NJ (PRWEB) August 04, 2011
Dreamkind announced today that it has released Frankenstein Matchmaker, a game that combines word matching with monster-blasting action.
The goal of Frankenstein Matchmaker is to stop hoards of rampaging monsters from destroying your castle. The only way to make the angry monsters happy is to set them up on dates. According to the game's Associate Producer Clarynne Blanchard, "Vampires want to drink blood and Zombies want to eat brains, but Frankenstein's monsters just want to hold hands. Hey monsters need love, too!"
To help make a monster love connection, players will have to fire Cupid's arrows to form word pairs. Frankenstein Matchmaker includes four different monster-matching modes: rhymes, synonyms, antonyms, and anagrams (also known as word jumbles.) "Frankenstein Matchmaker is both a word game and an arcade game, so if you want to win you'll need to think fast and shoot straight," said Mrs. Blanchard.
Frankenstein Matchmaker features four difficulty levels structured to create different gaming experiences for different age groups. For younger players, the "Easy" mode features two different types of word matches: rhymes and anagrams. In the rhyming levels, kids search for pairs of words that rhyme (like "car" and "far" or "mountain" and "fountain.") In the anagrams levels, children have to match words that use the same letters but in a different order (such as "pets" and "step" or "listen" and "silent.")
For older players, the "Medium" and "Hard" settings introduce synonyms and antonyms into the game. At the same time, new types of word monsters appear that make it more difficult to complete pairs. By the time a player graduates to the "Insane" difficulty setting, even accomplished adult players will have their wits (and fingers) put to the test by the frenzied pace of the game.
"Frankenstein Matchmaker delivers a satisfying blend of word-matching and action-oriented game play," said Jay Schiffman, President of Dreamkind. "The game works on multiple levels. Kids and adults each enjoy it in different and age-appropriate ways."
Frankenstein Matchmaker is available as a universal app that allows users to play it on an iPhone, iPod, and iPad for a single purchase price of $1.99. A free lite version is also available. Frankenstein Matchmaker can be downloaded at the App Store.
