Montreal, Quebec, Canada – February 24, 2009 – Meridian4 (http://www.meridian4.com) is thrilled to announce that they have signed an agreement with independent developer IonFX to help digitally distribute their physics-based hardcore casual game; Obulis.
"We are extremely excited about our partnership with Meridian4. They have a phenomenal track record in working with developers.” said Bob Johnson of IonFX, “Obulis is a truly unique game, and we could not be more pleased to have Meridian4 deliver it to the wider audience it deserves."

Based on IonFX’s award-winning mobile game of the same name, Obulis takes things to the next level by fusing highly compelling gameplay with outstanding graphics, music and state of the art physics effects.
The goal of Obulis is to drop all of the colored spheres into their like-colored pots. Spheres are connected to the playfield using chains and ropes and the player must cut these constraints to put the spheres in motion. Doing this will set the level in action by the forces of gravity and physical interaction. The controls are extremely simple and intuitive. Obulis can literally be learned in seconds, but the puzzles will keep you thinking for hours.
° Over 150 Levels
° Over a dozen interesting themes
° Breathtaking Graphics and Music
° Spectacular Physics and Special Effects
