Liverpool, UK – 6 th December 2012 - Mobile games publisher, Thumbstar Games, is pleased to announce The Adorables , its first internally developed title, is out today for free on both iOS and Android devices.

With 60 levels to complete, The Adorables is a gorgeously vivid, manga-inspired charm-fest, featuring arts & craft-style level design, incandescent bursts of colour and an intricate balance of casual playability and ingenious level design.

This beautifully crafted arcade puzzler sees you taking control of one of five lovable creatures, the Adorables, each giving you the power to light up the night sky and restore the stunning Aurora Borealis to its former glory! Intuitive physics and tilt controls have you aiming a beam of pure aurora energy that lifts either Mu, Ruffle, Syd, Ping or Sneaker into the skies to cover the atmosphere in colourful hues!

Collect rainbow colours and unlock achievements, while competing on one of the six global leader boards. The Adorables has increasingly intricate twisting levels, cleverly placed pegs to target, and all-important time saving clocks to grab to keep the Adorables on course to make the world a more beautiful place!

The Adorables has been specifically optimised for each platform. The iOS version of The Adorables shines on Apple’s retina display, making use of its ultra HD graphics, and offering full Game Center integration in addition. On Android, the game has been designed to support multiple resolutions across a whole range of devices, and utilizes the hugely popular GREE Platform.

As the studio’s first internally-developed title, The Adorables is an incredibly exciting release for Thumbstar . Lead by industry stars Martin and Gareth Edmondson, the company continues to add its own splash of colour to the app gaming world, as well as memorable mobile and tablet experiences.

The Adorables is available for download at the following locations:
