[prMac.com] Bristol, United Kingdom - Code Redman today is pleased to announce the availability of Pontoon 88, their third major release exclusive to the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. Pontoon 88 is a full rules version of Pontoon, the British version of the popular casino card game Blackjack or 21. Pontoon 88 is a free download.
The objective of the game is to build your pile of playing chips by betting smart on the value of your hand of cards. The aim of a hand is to get to 21 or as close as possible without going over 21, known as "bust". To win a hand you must beat the dealer's hand. The best hands are Pontoon, an ace plus a 10 value card, and a Five Card Trick, any five cards with a total value of up to 21.
This implementation of the classic game includes large fully illustrated playing cards and simple gameplay.
"This is our first attempt at the in-app purchase model." said Chris Redman, founder of Code Redman. "If you're good and the luck goes with you you'll be able to play it free forever. If not, the game gives you a few chips to play with after half and hour as a good will gesture, but you can buy more chips in the app."
After 23 years of working on business systems in the financial industry, Chris has recently switched to the Apple platform and is forging ahead independently. Other notable Code Redman releases are Simoo Free and Thumbat. Thumbat HD for iPad will be available shortly.
