Pocket Guido for iOS - Create and take care of your own Guido Avatar
August 9, 2011 in Games
[prMac.com] New York, New York - App Partner Development, in association with Joseph Pantaleo, has announced the release of their new game Pocket Guido on August 3rd, 2011. In Pocket Guido players get to create and customize their very own Guido avatar. Then they'll have to take care of him by giving him what every good Guido needs... trips to the gym, a nice orange tan, and clean laundry! Once their Guido is ready for prime time they can take him to The Club and challenge other Guidos to dramatic dance battles.
To customize their Guidos players can choose from a variety of clothing styles, hairstyles, and accessories in the in-game store. The Guido avatar will also dynamically respond to how the player takes care of it. If the players don't work out their Guidos, the Guidos will get skinny and weak. If they don't go tanning the Guido will get pale. If they don't do the Guido's laundry their Guido will start to emit some unattractive odors. The player has to play 3 mini-games to keep their Guido healthy.
In the Gym mini-game the player can either hit bench-press or the treadmill. When doing the bench press the player must button mash his way through reps and sets to keep his Guido looking good. When running on the treadmill the player must use his fingers to keep the treadmill moving while matching the pace of the treadmill's AI. A fit body doesn't come easy!
In the Tanning mini-game the player must activate a series of meters and switches at the right time to give their Guido avatar the perfect tan. If they're off by too much their Guido's tan will not look very sweet.
In the Laundry mini-game the player must flick clothes into a series of washing machines. The more shots the player makes the more laundry they do!
Once the player's Guido is fit, tan, and fresh enough they can go to The Club where they can challenge other guidos to epic dance battles. The player can string together a dance routine from 9 different dance animations including the Soldier, Hippity-Hoppity, and of course the classic Fist Pump. First guido to dance away their opponents hit point's wins cash to spend in the store. List of the full feature set in Pocket Guido:
