[prMac.com] Fuquay Varina, NC - Mad Monkey Militia today announces that "iHurt" is not an RTS, it's not Starcraft 2 and we are very sorry for that. What iHurt is... Is an exciting new cartoon style action game available now on the App Store for the iPhone and iPod touch. iHurt Lite is also Free, that other big game definitely isn't free.
Our game iHurt, and iHurt Lite is full of serious laughter, cartoon antics, ragdoll physics fun and plenty of old-fashioned Saturday Morning Cartoon-style HURT! The game takes place in a cartoon universe where your character's success is measured by how much 'Hurt' they can inflict on themselves in the name of physical slapstick cartoon comedy.
Cartoon characters don't worry about rising health care costs! Players can take a break from all their medical bill worries for a bit and vent their frustrations in "iHurt". Steer your character down Mt. Spinebreaker while hitting as many objects as possible in your quest to rack up the largest hospital bill in the history of the iHurt Championships! Simple pick up and play mechanics lets anyone have some quick fun.
"The Mad Monkey Militia crew really wanted to recreate the feeling of playing in a classic Looney Tune cartoon. We think we've achieved that and are anxious to expand our roster of characters, levels and game modes." says Randy Greenback. "It's also important to note that iHurt is a virtual simulation, a game, and should not be recreated at home in any way. The actions in the game are just what cartoon characters do for a living, they fall down and go boom. They are professionals in the world of slapstick, and also we really don't want to be sued by anyone."
