Astraware Breathes New Life and Looks in to an Old Classic to Bring Out Tantric.

THE MIDLANDS, ENGLAND – June 7th, 2004 – Astraware today announces the launch of Tantric for Palm OS® and Pocket PC. Tantric, formally known as Abysma has earned itself the hall of fame treatment and been given beautiful new graphics and sounds.

Tantric has players frantically arranging different shapes in a top down fashion to avoid leaving gaps for the impeding power sapping bar. Those people with a natural flair for efficient suitcase packing or arranging large furniture in a small room will take to Tantric like a fish to water.
The gameplay has been likened by one journalist to filling a car trunk while someone is slowing trying to shut it.

  • Dazzling graphics
  • Shadow effects
  • Ultra addictive game
  • Palm port of the popular web game
  • ‘Tap to drop’ or ‘Drag and drop’ interface
  • Colour and Greyscale support

“This game is all about focus and reaching a higher state of awareness – hence the new name! The option of the new music and sound effects adds a new level to the game and the rich new colours captivate first time viewers.” said Howard Tomlinson, CEO of Astraware.

Tantric is available for Palm OS® and Pocket PC based devices at Astraware?s website,, priced at $17.95.
