[prMac.com] Bristol, United Kingdom - Code Redman announces today the availability of Thumbat HD, their fifth major release exclusively on the iPad. Thumbat HD is an advanced bat and ball game with an industrial theme.
In Thumbat HD the player takes control of two recycling trash cans, the bats, and tries to keep the steel air purifier, the sky ball, in the air. Various "poison" particles in the air have an effect on the ball as it sweeps through, requiring the player to react quickly. The player has one sky ball and only one chance. The sky darkens, the game quickens and the effects get more pronounced as time passes. The players task is to last as long as possible.
Thumbat HD has a second mode, "Versus". In Versus, two players play the game on one iPad each taking control of one bat. There are separate scores and penalty points for missing. The players combined score is submitted to Game Center so there is also an element of collaboration.
"We are very pleased with Thumbat HD, we've incorporated some suggestions from players of the iPhone version of the game." said Chris Redman, founder of Code Redman. "Extending to the iPad was actually one of the suggestions. The game was originally developed for the smaller form factor of the iPhone, but it works great on the larger screen, particularly in Versus mode. After 23 years of working on internal PC based business systems in the financial industry, Chris has recently switched to the Apple platform and is forging ahead independently. "It's a risk but an exciting opportunity in a world-wide market." Chris said.
