Tampere, Finland, December 12th 2017 - The marble shooter action puzzle game Sparkle Unleashed will launch for Nintendo Switch™ on December 25th. The game is priced $7.99 USD.

”Sparkle Unleashed features the same flawless playability and polish than Sparkle 2, while providing an alternative marble shooter core gameplay. The metagame has also been remixed with customizable powerups. It’s no wonder the games are equally well liked and successful.” says Tero Alatalo, CEO of 10tons Ltd.

Sparkle Unleashed closely resembles Sparkle 2. The main difference between the games is that Sparkle 2 features the genre original rotating marble shooter gameplay, while Sparkle Unleashed features a marble shooter that moves along the bottom of the screen, which is a newer evolution of the genre. While both styles are popular, some marble shooter enthusiasts greatly prefer one or the other.

Sparkle Unleashed is a match-three marble shooter action puzzle game where the player lines up and shoots colorful marbles to make matches of three or more like colors. Matched marbles disappear, taking the player a step forward in clearing the level. Powerups with spectacular effects are also an integral part of the game’s appeal.

Features:

  • Ultra-polished match-three marble shooter gameplay
  • Chained Orbs, Rock Orbs and more exciting challenges
  • An arsenal of 18 potent powerups to choose from
  • Immersive soundtrack by award-winning composer Jonathan Geer
  • 108 challenging levels, Survival mode, and two more difficulty settings
