Astraware Releases Candy Train for Palm OS&reg and Pocket PC Devices

The Midlands, England (October 27th, 2003) – – Astraware Limited announces the release of Candy Train for Palm OS&reg and Pocket PC devices.

Candy Train is a superb conversion of the original web based game developed by PopCap, which puts players in control of their own candy train, as they flick the squares to join up pieces of the train track to help navigate the little train.Collecting the candy themed bonuses whilst taking care to watch out for the switching tracks and the danger of crashing into the edge of the scenery or running out track.

Candy Train is cute, simple to play, and has lovely sound and visual effects! If you liked PopCap’s original web based version, you’ll love our PDA version, since tapping with a stylus is an easy and intuitive way to play this type of game.” said Howard Tomlinson, Astraware CEO. ” My favourite aspect is the addition of a newly composed musical soundtrack which is great fun to accompany the game as you play!

Both Palm OS&reg and Pocket PC versions of Candy Train are available now, and are priced US$9.95 for a limited period on Astraware?s Web site, .
