Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia - Oct 26, 2011 - Independent developer Chin-Heong Khor today released Disassembly 3D: Ultimate Stereoscopic Destruction 1.0 for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad on the App Store. Using realistic disassembly physics, Disassembly 3D simulates the experience of taking everyday objects apart. Screws, bolts, nuts and every single part can be removed by touch dragging in full stereoscopic 3D. Bomb mode allows for blowing objects up in slow motion bullet-time.

Disassembly 3D features detailed 3D models of twelve different objects ranging from furniture and appliances, to electronics. Players can interact, use and disassemble the object intuitively by just touching and dragging the parts. Camera control is achieved the same way, using pinch zoom to zoom in or out. Points are scored based on the complexity of the parts disassembled.

When the object is successfully disassembled, bomb mode is unlocked, which then allow players to blow the object up in slow-motion bullet time. Additionally, players can capture screenshots in-game and share the fruits of their destruction on Facebook.

As its name implies, Disassembly 3D features an optional stereoscopic 3D mode that allows for glasses-free viewing on the device itself using either cross-eye or parallel-eye viewing techniques. 3D TV support is scheduled for a future update.

"In today's app marketplace, it is very hard to be noticed unless you have a quality product that is unique, fun, and mind-blowingly awesome" said Chin-Heong Khor, the lead developer. "Disassembly 3D fulfills all of these criteria, especially the mind-blowing part!"
