Alexandria, VA, December 03, 2009 – ThinkFun Inc., the leading creator of mind-challenging games, announces the much awaited and highly anticipated launch of its original Rush Hour iPhone application, available for free on the Apple iTunes Store beginning today.
"Our customers around the world have been asking for a Rush Hour iPhone application, and we are excited to finally make this happen," says Bill Ritchie, ThinkFun co-founder and CEO. "The original Rush Hour iPhone application is a logic puzzle that offers the same simplicity, ease-of-use and high-quality content our users have come to expect from ThinkFun."
Rush Hour is the smartest and most challenging logic puzzle for the iPhone and is packed with exclusive features, such as:
* The free application has 70 original challenges and the $.99 full version has 2500 Challenges -- With each version, the challenges range from beginner to expert that will entertain novice players and test advance players with super-hard expert levels.
* Perfect Score -- Rush Hour for the iPhone tracks the number of moves players make to get out of the traffic jams and compares them to the shortest, most efficient path possible. Even exceptional gamers who manage to solve all of the puzzles can't claim mastery of Rush Hour until they have tallied the perfect score on each challenge.
* Solve Button -- No matter where they are in their challenge, the solve button will show players how to solve it, and then put them back where they left off so players can learn and complete the challenge themselves.
"There are plenty of Rush Hour knock-offs out there," says Liz Deakin, Director, Marketing and Sales at ThinkFun "so we took our original platform and made it the best quality version available.”
The Rush Hour application for the iPhone or iPod Touch is available for free from Apple's iTunes store at: www.itunes.com/apps/RushHourFree.

About Rush Hour The story of Rush Hour began almost 15 years ago, when famed Japanese inventor Nob Yoshigahara traveled to America looking for a game company that shared his vision of excellence and his passion for puzzling. Bill Ritchie and ThinkFun co-founder Andrea Barthello knew right away they had found something special in Yoshigahara and his puzzles. The inventor changed ThinkFun forever, and remained a close friend of the company until his death in 2004. The original Rush Hour board game continues to be a world-wide best seller, winning numerous gaming awards including the Best 25 Toys in 25 Years Award by Parent’s Choice Magazine.
