Best-Selling Action Puzzler Brings Classic

Action and Touch-Screen Gaming to Apple Smart Devices

DUBLIN, Ireland—March 8th, 2012—PopCap Games, the worldwide leader in casual video games, today announced the global release of Zuma’s Revenge! ™ and Zuma’s Revenge!™ HD for the iPad®, iPhone® and iPod® touch.  These action-packed titles, based on classic PopCap IP, have been optimized for Apple’s popular smart devices, and are available immediately for €1.59 and €3.99 respectively from the App Store, or at www.itunes.com/appstore.

Zuma’s Revenge! was designed specifically for the iPhone and iPod touch while Zuma’s Revenge! HD combines the small screen iPhone/iPod touch version with a larger format edition, optimized specifically for the HD iPad screen in one universal binary installment. With Zuma’s Revenge! HD, players get support for all devices with a single purchase.

“The frantic ball-shooting action of games in the Zuma franchise have always been some of PopCap’s most loved while always being at the top of the sales charts worldwide,” noted Andrew Stein, director of mobile business development at PopCap.  “We’re excited to bring these games to the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch to deliver adaptations that take best advantage of the touch screen capabilities of these awesome devices.  We know fans will agree that these are the premier editions of Zuma’s Revenge!.”

Zuma’s Revenge! and Zuma’s Revenge! HD both  feature classic Adventure mode action with 60 levels and six bosses, plus Challenge mode with all 60 challenges and trophies as well as the ever popular Tiki Temple.  Also highlighted are the touch-screen capabilities, a first for the Zuma franchise, that usher-in a new, intuitive way to play.

Zuma’s Revenge! is the second installment in a franchise that has sold over 20 million copies to date.  It puts a new twist on the adventures of the ball-blasting frog who makes his way through a series of arcade-style challenges set within a tropical paradise. The game takes the relatively basic point-and-click premise of the original Zuma® and raises it several notches by incorporating horizontal and vertical “sliding” as well as the ability to hop from one lily pad to another for greater flexibility and to reach all areas of the screen. All-new tiki boss enemies provide a climactic ending to each major stage of the game and introduce various new forms of attack and defense that must be used to succeed in the game.

  1. Introducing layout themes and styles in FileMaker Pro 13

    FileMaker Pro, help, inspector, macworld australiaIf you are reading this, you are most likely aware of the benefits offered by FileMaker Pro 13, from streamlining your business’ data to organising projects, but how do you make your FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Go database solutions look the part?

    This is where layout themes and styles come in.

    Would you like the layout to show your business logo when your employees are entering data into the database? Would you like to create conformity across all pages, maybe with a colour theme that matches your business?

    In order to increase usability for your database, a well-designed layout will make the solution both appealing to look at, but also more efficient – as those entering or viewing data will be able to easily navigate the fields in front of them.

    What is a style?

    In FileMaker Pro, a style is the way a layout object, layout part and the database’s background appear. This encompasses the colour or transparency of objects and backgrounds, the style of line used within the layout, the borders of objects and parts, the shape of objects, the shadows outside or inside an object’s border, and the display state of an object.

    For example, when your draw a square on your layout, the initial appearance of the square will be determined by the theme currently being used by the layout. The colour of the square, the lines that define it and any shadow that appears are all differing styles that add up to make a theme.

    The initial theme is called the default and ensures that all objects added to the layout carry a similar look. So, if you add a second square to the layout, it will have the same colour and borders. Though this does not have to be the case if you would like to differentiate them.

    And a theme?

    A theme is the collection of a number of styles used in a layout. Themes are the full picture of how your layout or report appears, and encompass all of the individual styles applied to objects, parts and the background. The theme does not affect the way a layout functions, but when you apply a theme to a layout it will alter the way it looks and feels.

    Making alterations

    Adjusting a style in a theme is very simple. If you click on the object, layout part or background you would like to alter, open the Inspector and head to the Appearances tab, you will see the Style label field at the top. This indicates the current style.  If no changes have been made, it will likely read as ‘Default’.

    Alter the style of the object, layout part or background by editing the property settings on the Appearance tab of the Inspector. Once you have made your layout look the way you would like, select the red arrow that will have appeared as you were making your changes and click ‘Save As New Style’.

    Type in a new name for your style and press OK. Continue to create as many additional styles as you would like in your layout. If you would like to apply a style to multiple objects or modify a style slightly between two objects, your previous styles will be available in the Styles list on the Style tab of the Inspector.

    Once you have made all of the changes you would like, you have the option of creating a new theme or saving the changes to the current theme.
