On September 24, 2009, seller Micah Lee released "Skeleton key" a true "aac" game (addicting, amazing and challenging) for iPod touch and iPhone running the second or third operating system for iPhone mobile platform. The game puts you in the shoes of a treasure hunter. Your goal is to get as many keys you can find to open the treasure chests. Basically, "Skeleton key" is a puzzle game. This game is also entertaining and unique in the same time. The game play is rather simple, just matched every key with the correct treasure chest. You must unlock all treasure chests using the skeleton keys provided when you complete levels.

"Skeleton key" provides 100 levels, each and every one of them being not only unique but also challenging. Every level completed provides one single key for you to try to match with the correspondent chest. You can move the keys simultaneously, so suite your swipe direction. Every direction is possible without moving up (you can move to the left, to the right and down). Your mission is to guide the keys to the treasure chests without getting stuck.
However, you must move fast or you might get stuck. Therefore, when that happens you must restart the level. Before starting playing the game, take in notice that you are allowed only a specific amount of moves to direct all the keys to the treasure chest. Manage your moves in order to complete all the 100 levels. The graphics offered in this game are pretty decent. This is after all a puzzle game. Therefore you should expect great animation or 3D graphics.
To complete the overall good user experience you also get nice sounds and music. The total numbers of songs offered in "Skeleton key" is five. However, most users will probably just listen to their own playlists because the "Skeleton key" enables you this feature. Also keep in mind that the game will get harder with every level completed. You get three different game difficulty to choose from (the common easy, medium and, of course, hard). The only difference between this difficulty levels is the specific amount of moves you are allowed to make in one level. Your final score is determined by a various number of factors, such as number of moves left at the end of each level, number of lives kept at the end of each level, and many others. You can find "Skeleton key" on App Store with current version 1.2 for $1.99 price tag.
This upgraded version brings a few more features, such as skipping levels (with each level skipped you will lose one life), intro message (from the beginning of the game) disappears with just a tap on your iPod touch or iPhone screen. Now you can also use the accelerometer sensor to restart a level by simply shaking your device. "Skeleton key" is a great puzzle game. It is fun, and doesn't involve too much pressure for finishing it. Even so it will keep you entertained enough to play it at each level of difficulty.
