‘SIGMA’ is iTunes’ new“Greatest Gainer”

THE REVOLUTIONARY MATCH 3-­-4-­-5-­-6-­-7-­-8-­-9-­-10... GAME THAT EVERYONE IS GRAVITATING TOWARD IS LEAVING ITS MARK ON THE ITUNES CHARTS!

CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA– June 25, 2010

BigStack Studios launched SIGMA just a few weeks ago , and has received rave?reviews from TouchArcade, PocketGamer, and Village Gamer, just to name a few. Apple has?also featured SIGMA on iTunes’“New and Noteworthy” list, driving it into the top 25-?-35 in the?United States and Canada, as well as on various charts around the world.

While most developers are finding it hard to land in the top 100 on the iTunes Paid Apps Chart,?SIGMA steadily climbed its way toward the top 10 immediately following its release, joining the?elite apps that are currently playing musical chairs in the first 10-?-25 positions. SIGMA has?bounced around quite a few times as well, moving from #36 to #31, and peaked at #14. It has?also been featured on the‘New and Noteworthy’ and‘What’s Hot’ lists, and is currently?featured on the‘What We’re Playing’ list, which should also assist in moving the app around?(yet again) over the next few days.

With its’ simple, yet very addictive match 3-?-4-?-5-?-6-?-7-?-8-?-9-?-10 game play, it’s too early to tell where?SIGMA will permanently land, it is safe to say that this revolutionary app will see the same?success as Angry Birds, Doodle Jump, and Flight Control, and will become one of titles that every?iPhone gamer should have in their app library. SIGMA is…Easy to Play, Hard to Master.
