MWNY: Maverick Software to Publish 'Jiggy!'
1:17 PM | Patrick Leyden | Comment on this story

Gamers know Westlake Interactive for their first-class ports of the hottest
games, but what some fans might not know is that Westlake president Mark Adams
writes applications for his own shareware company, Maverick Software.


Maverick Software projects have had to take a back seat to Westlake
Interactive projects in recent years, but this is about to change.
Maverick's latest release is a game called Jiggy! Described by Suellen Adams
as "a cross between Tetris and a crossword puzzle," Jiggy! is a
single-player puzzle game that will feature 35 boards, three levels of
difficulty and is expected to run on any iMac or above.


The game should be available for purchase online and will be CharityWare
rather than being a traditional shareware title. A signifigant portion of
the proceeds of the game will be donated to the Christopher Reeve Paralysis
Foundataion. Jiggy! should be released by the end of the summer.
