Aha! debuts for iPhone
CS Odessa's web-based visual logic game Aha! has been optimized to work on the iPhone. The game is played by clicking on groups of similarly colored spheres to remove them from the board. The larger the number of items removed, the greater the reward in points. The point is to reconfigure the board on a constant basis to make it so that more like-colored spheres will end up next to one another. CS Odessa says "The Aha! game is easy to play but challenging game that features two different skins with attractive animations, and adjustable difficulty levels," adding "Aha! game was redeveloped for iPhone by ConceptDraw MINDMAP team. Believe it or not there is a connection between Aha!, the iPhone and ConceptDraw MINDMAP. All three of them can be used together in creative and innovative ways. It is easy to build a mind map of Aha! winning strategies in ConceptDraw MINDMAP, and then determine the validity of your logic by playing." The iPhone-optimized release is completely free, and also works over the internet with Internet Explorer, Firefox and Opera browsers on Mac OS X and Windows platforms, making use of AJAX rather than Java.
