March 30th, 2006 - WildSnakeTM Software (www.wildsnake.com) is excited to announce their collaboration with Alexey Pajitnov, famed creator of Tetris, has produced the first title in their new line of puzzle games. Alexey's Dwice represents an innovative new approach to action puzzle games.

Alexey's Dwice is a game of action matching where you are on a race against the clock to save a village from an impending avalanche. Match together the icy blocks that are the same shape or isolate them from their chilly friends to eliminate them from the board. Move fast because more blocks are always sliding down the mountain. Collect special power ups, like explosives, fire lines, and ice picks to help clear the blocks.

Alexey's Dwice comes with two different game modes. The adventure game mode lets you travel from location to location, saving the many villages from a long winter. Arcade Mode represents a more traditional Alexey's products, where a never ending avalanche awaits the skill and speed required to push it back for as long as possible.

"It is a great honor to work alongside someone as well respected as Alexey," said Andy Nick, owner of WildsnakeTM Software, "We look forward to producing more titles along the same lines and quality levels as Alexey's Dwice in the near future."

Alexey's Dwice comes with a free demo download available at the Wildsnake website at www.wildsnake.com
