Announcing Stone Cutter

By Longbow,

We have released the PC version of Stone Cutter, a meditative puzzle game. Match four or more triangular stone pieces of the same color to destroy them and score points. Relax with the puzzle mode or add time pressure with the action mode. The freeware version takes the ten levels from the Java version and adds the extra play modes and special effects made available for the PC version.

Download and try out the freeware version here. If you like the freeware version then you'll love the full registered version with 100 levels, save game checkpoints and network scoring.
System Requirements: Pentium II 233, 32-64 megs RAM, Windows 9x/ME/NT/2000/XP
