[prMac.com] Reston, VA - FlipSide5, Inc. re-launches entire iPhone lineup; Touch4, Tic-Tac-Touch and the current #1 iPhone download, Touch Hockey. This lineup features social gaming highlighted by its "one-tap play" technology, instant messaging and online gaming support and all for free. The extreme popularity of Touch Hockey validates FlipSide5's social and online gaming strategy.
In this re-launch, FlipSide5 brings WiFi multi-player local networking support to each of its iPhone games. Online gaming support is also provided for FlipSide5's ever popular 4-in-a-row game, Touch4. FlipSide5's "one-tap play" technology enables two iPhone gamers to instantly connect to each other with a single button tap over a local network. Other iPhone games require a more complex and cumbersome process for multi-player gaming.
FlipSide5 released Touch Hockey, its first arcade multi-player game this week. Touch Hockey became the #1 most popular iPhone application in just two days. Touch Hockey is on pace to eclipse the one million download mark in just over one week.
"Our strategy has always been to be a top 10 iPhone game company by delivering best-of-breed social and online games. Touch Hockey solidifies this strategy in a big way." said Michael Sanford, President of FlipSide5, Inc. "The same engine that drives Touch Hockey is embedded in Touch4 and Tic-Tac-Touch. We have already licensed this technology and are extending our licensing efforts. We have exciting projects in our pipeline. The best is yet to come."
One FlipSide5 user wrote, "You rock! I just downloaded all three games, and they're awesome. I'm your biggest fan! I played 1 and 2 player and multi-player online and with wi-fi. My son and I have an iPod Touch and my daughter has taken over mine because of your games. I'm spreading the word to all of my friends, as will my son. Thanks again for the heads up. My wait was worth it. Thank you, thank you, thank you!"
All of FlipSide5's current titles are now free using an ad-driven model. FlipSide5's games are officially labeled "Touch4: FS5 (FREE)", "Touch Hockey: FS5 (FREE)" and "Tic-Tac-Touch: FS5 (FREE)". Search for "FS5" in the App Store to easily find FlipSide5's games.
