[prMac.com] Cupertino, California - Broken Thumbs Apps, a family-owned and operated iPhone application developer, today is pleased to announce the release of Beer Toss 1.0 for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Beer Toss is an addictive, easy to pick up and play game, where the goal is for the player to deliver beers to thirsty patrons by flicking beers from their device's touch screen.
Easy to learn, but difficult to master, players will enjoy the challenge of successfully serving as many beers in a row as possible. Also, the basic concept and intuitive gameplay will be familiar to many players, but Beer Toss brings a new twist on the genre, as well as numerous whimsical touches.
Beer Toss features four unique locations for the player to travel to, including Munich, Germany, home of the famous Oktoberfest beer festival, and the rolling hills of Ireland. As a bonus, Beer Toss also includes a Beer Fridge that displays special beer trophies earned while playing the game.
In addition, Beer Toss incorporates enticing artwork and characters, background music and sounds that create an ambiance of bustling beer-loving crowds, and numerous other features that help the player get into the lively mood of Beer Toss. Beer Toss is also Open Feint enabled, which allows players to track multiple achievements, compare scores worldwide and connect with their friends.
"Beer Toss is a fun way for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users to take a break," said Justin Maples, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Broken Thumbs Apps. "We focused on creating a fun atmosphere around the familiar and intuitive flicking motion. Fans of movies like Beerfest and Old School, and people who are in college or like to remember their college days, will especially like Beer Toss, but this game was designed to be enjoyed by everyone."
