[prMac.com] Brisbane, Australia - Game development company Dobsoft Studios is please to announce the release of "Bull Stampede Pro" and "Bull Stampede Lite" on Apple's App Store today, offering gamers a fun new take on the endurance gameplay genre. Players assume the role of the world's greatest matador, tasked with luring an out-of-control stampede away from civilization.
While dodging the oncoming bulls using intuitive touch controls, pulling off impressive combo chains and dealing with the gradually increasing difficulty, the player will also encounter damsels in distress (dressed rather unfortunately in red) and have the opportunity to rescue them. Doing so fills up their Macho Meter; in turn, a full Macho Meter transforms the matador into a muscular beefcake and allows him to knock the bulls out instead of avoiding them. Knocking out enough bulls makes the difficulty level drop down again, giving players a chance to prolong their game and reach lofty heights on the global Openfeint and Game Center leaderboards.
Dobsoft Studios' founder William Dobson was pleased with the successful launch of the two Bull Stampede titles. "We think Bull Stampede has just the kind of pick-up-and-play gameplay that iPhone users are looking for. Its bullfighting theme should strike bored App afficionados as fresh and entertaining." Fans can also expect more from the studio in the future. "We've put a lot of polish into the game and hope to use what we've learned on our next title, which is already in development. But, rest assured we have a few ideas for updates to Bull Stampede too!"
