Cerebral Vortex Games Releases Word Burst and Sonus for iPhone/iPod Touch

Thorold, ON– November 20, 2009– Cerebral Vortex Games, a Thorold, Ontario-based developer of casual games, is pleased to announce that the games Word Burst and Sonus are now available for download on the iTunes App Store.

Word Burst is the on-the-go version of the company’s popular word/action Flash game. Gamers are presented with a grid full of random letters while a timer ticks down. Players spell words by rapidly clicking on letters. Creating a word and making it“burst” will award you points and more time—the longer the word, the better!

“Word Burst is a maddeningly addictive game,” said Keith Makse, President of Cerebral Vortex Games.“We’re very excited it’s now available for iPhone users. We know it’s one app you’ll go to again and again.”

A high-tech variation on a classic memory game, Sonus challenges players to study a pattern of musical tones and multi-colored lights. They must repeat the pattern back by touching the correct buttons on screen. The stakes get higher as the pattern gets longer!

“Think you’ve got a good memory? Prove it with Sonus,” says Mr. Makse.“We have two awesome modes available: Repeat After Me and Reverse. We’ll be adding more cool modes for Sonus in the future,” added Mr. Makse.“So stay tuned.”

Word Burst and Sonus are now available on iTunes for the iPhone 3G, 3GS and iPod Touch for the Launch Rate of $0.99. After this weekend, they will settle at a $2.99 value.
