[prMac.com] Frankfurt, Germany - TMMC is proud to announce the immediate availability of "Slam it!" A parlor game for the iPhone or iPod touch. "Slam it!" is a fun way to draw sticks, to have a shoot-out or to find a random winner. The game makes use of the multi-touch interface to recognize game participants and as part of the game idea makes use of the accelerometer to detect players slamming on the desk.
"Having a kids' birthday and want to find a team captain? Need to determine who's paying the next round? Who will be the designated driver? Which poor soul in your shared flat will do the dishes? Don't just agree on it or, god forbid, command it - no, slam it!", said Sven Schmidt, co-developer of "Slam it!".
To play "Slam it!", one player puts his or her iPhone or iPod touch on a table or desk. Participants gather around the device and each player then selects a playing field by placing a finger on the screen. Once every player has lifted his or her finger, a spinner in the middle of the game board will start to rotate and to accelerate. At full speed, players can slam on the desk. The internal accelerometer of the iPhone or iPod touch will detect the vibration and the spinner will decelerate, pointing out a player.
"Slam it!" can be played in two game modes ("Protect Yourself" and "Last Player Wins"). The game comes with three beautifully designed themes called "Roulette", "Psycho" and "Techno".
English, German, Italian and Japanese.
iPhone or iPod Touch 2.0 or later.
