Astraware and Deluxeware offer you fun in the forest with Hedgehog.

THE MIDLANDS, ENGLAND ? October 18th, 2004 ? Astraware together with Deluxeware announce a new game entitled Hedgehog.

Hedgehog is a forest-themed matching puzzle based on the traditional game ?Pairs? but introducing some creative new twists. Players help Hedgehog to pair-up his forest friends by turning over two matching tiles. As tiles are matched, they clear from the screen to a chorus of popping sounds.

Suitable for all ages, Hedgehog is a simple game of skill and timing with three difficulty levels, offering an increasing challenge as players progress to the harder levels. Hedgehog features bonus tiles to help players clear each level including wild-card matching, line clearance and even a brief glimpse of the tile symbols. Hedgehog is a race against the clock as tiles will continue to appear from the bottom of the screen. If the tiles reach the top, then it?s game over and time for another try at beating your own high score. Expert players who match more than one pair in a row will be awarded ever increasing combo-bonuses.

Hedgehog features a funky stereo music soundtrack and sound effects which further enhance the feel of the game.

Hedgehog will be available from October 18th 2004 for Palm OS® devices at Astraware’s website, www.astraware.com, priced $14.95.
