Back in May last year, White Bat Games released the sumptuous hidden object game Hidden Anthologies: Pride and Prejudice, based on Jane Austen’s classic novel. I’ve just noticed that AppMyWorld, a review-gathering site, has the game at an 86% review average!
It’s great to know that people are enjoying the game.
English Hedgerow has been nominated for the prestigious Designs of the Year 2013! This award celebrates the best designs from around the world. Over 90 designs have been nominated in the categories of architecture, product, furniture, fashion, graphic, digital, and transport design.
All the shortlisted projects will be on show in an exhibition at London’s Design Museum from 20 March to 7 July 2013 and winners from each category and one overall winner will be announced in April.
Some of the other nominees look amazing, but we’re hoping we have a chance of wining!
I’m pleased to announce that Fruit Frenzy is available now on Google Play. Compatible with nearly every Android phone and tablet, the game has everything that made it a hit on iOS.
Plus, this version has some new features that I’d like to tell you about that make Fruit Frenzy better than ever!
An undo button in Puzzle Mode makes it easier to solve puzzles without worrying about making mistakes. Now you can just concentrate on the puzzle itself! You can undo up to 100 moves.
An extra difficulty level for those of you who reached ‘Insane + 2′ in the original game. Now there’s an ‘Ultimate’ difficulty to challenge you once more!
Fruit Frenzy is now part of the ScoreLoop community! The original Fruit Frenzy uses OpenFeint which has now closed down. But don’t worry, the leaderboards and achievements features are now on ScoreLoop instead! You can also share the game with others in the ScoreLoop community and take advantage of ScoreLoop’s many social features.
If you think your Android device is too old to support modern games, you might be pleasantly surprised. The game needs only a small of space on your handset (8.3Mb), and most of this can be placed on an SD card. Give it a try! If you have a modern handset, you’ll be able to take advantage of 60 frames per second super-smooth gameplay.
Keep an eye out for the game on other Android stores, which we’ll be working on over the next couple of weeks.

The great guys at Mojo Bones have launched their Kickstarter project – GameTron 1000. It’s an amazing 16-bit retro-fest that automatically makes unique games for you. Back the project and you could personally be included in the game as a 16-bit sprite. How’s that for fame?
White Bat Games will be at Gamescom in Cologne this Wednesday to Friday. Gamescom is a huge yearly games and entertainment event. Drop me a line if you want to meet there and gawp at all the new games, or just to chat!
Marygameworld has posted a gameplay video where she plays through the first few scenes of White Bat’s latest title, Hidden Anthologies: Pride and Prejudice. It gives quite a good idea how the game plays. The video is in 720p HD, so be sure to watch it full screen to appreciate it fully!
Hidden Anthologies: Pride and Prejudice launched on Big Fish Games on Monday! They’re selling the game on both PC and Mac, and this is the first time that the PC version has been made available. There’s also a demo version which you can download for free to try out the first two chapters of the game.
Pride and Prejudice has been well received by critics everywhere. App Advice, a very well-respected app review site, gave the game a great write up here.
Also AppBite gave the game a score of five out of five:
“How about, instead of reading the story, you could actually be a part of it? What if you could help Jane find her dress and shoes in time for the ball? Or serve Mr Darcy with a cup of tea? Put together pieces of Elizabeth’s diary, and reveal hidden secrets. Now, you can do all these things. Because following the characters in Pride and Prejudice has never been more captivating and fun.”
