Gluddle is about to tickle your fancy with its latest update. A longtime favorite of mine, Gluddle is a game that seems to have been born out of a genuine appreciation of George Orwell's classic dystopian novel, "1984." But even as it's based on a story with disturbing undertones, Gluddle manages to be full of vibrant color and sheer delight. Gluddle has you helping little globular fellas called Ois escape from the oppressive eyes of the similarly globular members of The Supervision. An entertaining physics-based puzzle game, Gluddle appears to combine Peggle and Angry Birds as it tasks you to bounce the former on to and off of the latter. If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. Already a good game, Gluddle has just become even better with the arrival of its 3.0 update. Codenamed "Tickle," Gluddle 3.0 brings iPhone 5 support, full Game Center integration, plus the following enhancements:
Gluddle 3.0 is available now as a free update or as a new $0.99 download in the App Store. Also included in Gluddle 3.0 is a new set of "refreshable" game credits. Incidentally, some variations of the credits include mentions of popular iOS game review sites. Of course, as seen in the screenshot above, AppAdvice also got a nice, little shout-out from the creators of a game we really like. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
