Core Concepts has announced Rich Diamond 1.3 an update to their popular puzzle/strategy game for iPhone and iPod Touch. Developed specifically to take advantage of the iPhone's unique abilities and interface, Rich Diamond features 335 levels, each ranked from easy to challenging. Puzzles are designed to fit perfectly in the iPhone's screen, so the player can see the whole puzzle without the need to scroll around.

In Rich Diamond, each puzzle is stand-alone and can be solved in any order. It was specifically designed to be finesse, rather than brute-force. Players use their wits and cunning to maneuver around various perils to reach their goal, and have as much time as needed to plan their strategy and make a move. The primary goal of each puzzle is to collect all of the gems, then reach the exit. Each puzzle has a number of traps that provide the solving challenge.

"I get the most gratification from the feedback and comments of our customers" said Dave Johannsen, founder of Core Concepts. "I've had teenagers exclaim that Rich Diamond is their favorite game, and I've had conversations with 80-year-olds that say the same thing! Rich Diamond captures the imagination as it exercises the brain. Our level designers enjoy plotting traps for the players in anticipation of the satisfaction that will come when the traps are unlocked."

The game offers two display modes: perspective and top-down. The player can instantly switch between the two modes, even while in the middle of playing a level. The puzzles are not timed, and the creatures in the game move only when the player moves. This allows the player to ponder actions rather than forcing them to move without thinking. If a mistake is made while solving the puzzle, the Undo button can be used to erase one or more moves. This eliminates the frustration of having to start over on a puzzle because of a simple mistake.

Feature Highlights:
* Each Puzzle is stand-alone; solve in any order
* Puzzles are not timed
* Undo without having to restart a Puzzle
* Two display modes; perspective and top-down
* Compelling UI and Graphics

"If I were going to be stuck on a desert island with my computer, and electricity to run it, of course, these would be the games I would want to be playing. Fantastic fun for the entire family. Rich Diamond is the best logic game for children and adults." - Tribune-Review

Pricing and Availability:
Rich Diamond 1.3 for iPhone normally sells for $2.99 (USD) and available exclusively through Apple's App Store. Core Concepts is offering a limited-time sale at $0.99. There is also a free, Lite version available which offers 35 levels.
