Astraware and PopCap Games release Hammer Heads

Hammer Heads is a frantic fun-fest for anyone with an aversion to those pesky creatures that live at the bottom of your garden. As the gnomes rise from their holes, just tap the screen to bash them with your hammer! Meet several types of gnome, each with their own unique quirks, collect power-ups to aid you in your quest, and earn special speed bonuses if you’re handy with your hammer! A visit to the Tower of Gold can earn you extra cash to spend on special hammer and life upgrades available at the in-game Shiny Shop.

“For each problem there’s a solution, but when the solution involves a hammer, you can be sure that it’ll end up being rewarding to the soul,” said Howard Tomlinson, CEO of Astraware. “What could be better for testing your reactions and tapping accuracy than teaching those pesky gnomes a lesson!”

Hammer Heads features 2 game modes – Classic Bash – progress through 25 challenging levels and defeat the Gnome King, earning special achievement trophies along the way; and Marathon Bash – a never-ending gnome-bashing extravaganza!

Hammer Heads has been one of the most popular PC and online gaming titles of 2006, and now fans of the game can take it with them on the move.

Hammer Heads is available for devices running Palm OS 5.0 and higher, and Windows Mobile for Pocket PC 2003, 2003SE and 5.0, from the Astraware website: The game is priced $19.95 with a special release discount for Club Astraware members.
