Today, Kalani Games released a brand new 3D story puzzle-action game for the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPad 2 and iPad 3 called Tiki Gods: Ancient Times - Kumulipo. The game is a combination of addictive puzzle solving and 3D action game play. With intriguing characters and levels set in a humorous style and story, the game pushes the 3D capabilities of the iPad 3, iPad 2 and iPhone 4 to bring a visually stunning and immersive experience to the puzzle genre.

This casual Hawaiian-themed game follows the story of 3 Tiki Gods - Ku, Kane and Lono - in a hilarious journey in creating a new island. Each level contains a fun and exciting 3D puzzle to solve by pushing, aligning and blasting block elements thus earning hidden gems. You'll be challenged from the depths of the ocean to the tops of volcanoes.

"Tiki Gods has been a longtime game concept that I have had. Born on Maui, Hawaii, I have always wanted to share the beautiful and intriguing Polynesian myths, culture and legends by means of a video game with the rest of the world. There is no better opportunity to do that than on the mobile, online and social network platforms," said Kalani Streicher, Chief Creative Director and designer of the game.



Tiki Gods is vibrant and humorous, allowing the player to control a Tiki God on a 3D grid in solving the puzzles. Each Tiki God has a unique attitude and powers: Ku - the God of War and Fire, Lono - the God of Nature and Growth, and Kane - the God of Thunder and Lightning. The characters add a personal and emotional connection to the game thru their humorous animations, dances and original gibberish island talk created for the game.

The game play is simple by pushing, pulling or kicking blocks or orbs of the same color into long adjacent clusters. Then by blasting the clusters you are rewarded with amazing special effects of a chain reaction of explosions revealing various colorful hidden gems. Tiki Gods is a game for the masses and packed with 72 levels, 3 unique characters, and 3 arcade games.

"Tiki Gods is the first of the next generation of 3D puzzle games that is 'easy to play and challenging to master' for all player ages. It is original and innovative, combining the addictive core game play elements of alignment, action and collection. Players will fall in love with the hilarious Tiki God characters and be amazed by the most incredible 3D visuals seen on mobile and tablets for a puzzle game," adds Streicher. An additional free and arcade version of the game is planned to be released.
