[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

We are pleased to announce that Underline is coming to iOS this Thursday 13th December. Following on from its launch on PlayStation Mobile in October it will now also be available on iPhones and iPod Touch, with iPad support coming early in 2013.

Underline is a fast-paced, addictive word game bringing elements of a variety of classic games together. As the letters drop from the top of the screen you must find and draw words in the grid making sure to not let a column fill up! You are rewarded for speed and skill with special multipliers and bonuses. These special tiles can clear rows, act as a 'blank' letter, or multiply your score as you compete to top the leaderboard. Use the coins you earn in-game to buy a variety of weapons which clear the grid, shuffle the tiles, give you a head start or even freeze time.

Gameplay is split over a number of modes:

Classic - letters will constantly drop from the top of the screen getting faster the longer you last and the better you play. Earn multipliers and bonus tiles to clear the board with bonus chains and earn higher scores.

Time Attack - this is like Classic mode but with a twist, the clock is always ticking and you must try and keep it topped up by playing words; the longer the word the more time added to your clock. How long will you last?

Wordsearch- in this mode you start with a solid grid of letters and you have two minutes to find as many words as possible, each time you remove a word it will be replaced with fresh letters.

Pass N Play – In this mode take on a friend and see who ends up running out of time first in this multiplayer version of Time Attack mode.

With over 25 Game Center achievements, multiple leaderboards to compete with your friends, four different game modes and a choice of 6 weapons; Underline really is the word game to keep you entertained over Christmas and into 2013 and even better its free!!
