Appliya Releases Evangelion Calendar and Puzzle Game Applications for iPhone and iPod Touch

Two new products in Appliya's Evangelion application series include the first mobile game for the Evangelion franchise.

Tokyo, Japan, March 12, 2009 - Appliya Inc., a leading publisher of Japanese mobile
applications, has just launched two new applications in their Evangelion Series. Now
iPhone and iPod Touch users can enjoy a calendar app that features exclusive art from
the Rebuild of Evangelion films, along with a challenging puzzle game. Learn more at

Evangelion Puzzle provides an exciting new twist on puzzle apps. This latest entry in
Appliya's Evangelion application series uses imagery taken directly from the Rebuild of
Evangelion movies in a challenging puzzle game that will have you occupied for hours!
The rules of the game are simple: load up your app and choose an image, difficulty
setting, and type of grid. Each puzzle consists of an image that has been broken up into
a grid of scattered tiles. Use your touch screen to slide the tiles into the proper place,
but there's only one empty space on the grid so your number of moves will be limited.
Be smart and plan your moves carefully! If you're not quite sure where a piece should
go, use the “hint” button to give you a full-view version of the puzzle image in its solved
state. Amateurs can choose a 3 x 3 grid on Easy or Normal, but serious puzzle pros will
love the challenge of the Hard 5 x 5 grid. When you crank up the difficulty, the time
limit for solving the puzzles decreases, so be quick! As you complete puzzles, you'll
unlock new ones that use new scenes from Rebuild of Evangelion. The app also keeps
track of your best puzzle completion times, so you can brag to your friends or motivate
yourself to do better!

Evangelion Calendar brings Evangelion into your daily activities. This app enables you
to create a wallpaper calendar that uses special images from the highly popular
Evangelion franchise. Choose a scene from our picture gallery, which features
characters, sketches, mecha, and vehicles from the anime, then pick the months you
want to display on your calendar, and in just a few seconds you'll have a new Evangelion
wallpaper with a quick reference calendar on it!

These apps are the result of a joint production effort between Appliya and anime
merchandise company BROCCOLI Co., Ltd. The first applications in Appliya's Evangelion
series, Evangelion Clock and Evangelion Picture Stamp, have been very popular with
anime fans. In its first few days of availability, Evangelion Clock shot up to #3 on the
best-selling list of the Utilities category on the Japanese iTunes App Store.

About Evangelion

After a catastrophic event called the Second Impact, the Earth's population was halved. All that
remains of Japan is Tokyo-3, a city that is constantly attacked by giant creatures that seek to
eradicate the human race, called Angels. Fourteen-year-old Shinji Ikari is summoned by his
estranged father to urgently come to the headquarters of NERV, a military organization that deals
with the destruction of the Angels through the use of giant cyborgs called Evas. Shinji's objective
is to pilot the Eva Unit 01, while teaming up with the Eva Unit 00 pilot, Rei Ayanami, and Eva Unit
02 pilot Asuka Langley Soryu. Together, these three teenagers will battle the Angels, and decide
the fate of the world.
