Furmins Now Available for Free!

2012 Housemarque

HELSINKI, FINLAND – September 03, 2012

Housemarque, the award-winning Finnish games developer responsible for Angry Birds Trilogy, has released Furmins Free, a free version of Furmins HD, the critically-acclaimed physics-based action puzzler for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. The game’s furry protagonists are already a household name in the iOS community, and Housemarque hopes this offering will only add to their popularity. “We believe this step will allow us to tap into a brand-new audience,” said Ilari Kuittinen, Housemarque’s CEO. “We feel there are a lot of gamers out there who perhaps did not have a chance to play the original version, and so we wanted to offer them another opportunity.”

In addition to the game’s base design of 108 challenging levels spread over eight beautifully-rendered worlds, Furmins Free will include a host of attractive new features, including:

  • The special world previously unlockable only on Facebook is offered as a standard world in the free version
  • The first world is open by default, allowing new players to jump right into the action
  • Bonus worlds can be unlocked as other worlds, offering a greater variety of game play
  • A thoughtful re-balance of In-App purchases: unlocking a world in Furmins Free will now cost 100 stars, and if a player gets stuck, he/she can buy stars from the in-game shop in the following increments:
    . 100 stars: 0.79€ / $0.99 / £0.79
    . 250 stars: 1.59€ / $1.99 / £1.49
    . 700 stars: 2.99€ / $3.99 / £1.99
  • Chinese, Korean, and Japanese localizations offered together for the first time
