[prMac.com] Frankfurt, Germany - TMMC is proud to announce an update to "Slam it!", the popular parlor game for the iPhone or iPod touch. As a Christmas special, "Slam it!" features a new Christmas theme and is a free download from the Apple App store. This bargain offer is limited until Christmas Day 2008.
"Slam it!" is a fun way to draw sticks, to have a shoot-out or to find a random winner. "Slam it!" can thrill the young and old alike as the game requires a skillful timing of the participants to point out other players and to determine a winner.
"Celebrating Christmas and want to find the poor soul doing the dishes? Need to determine who's choosing the next Christmas song? Who will be the designated driver? Don't just agree on it, Santa forbid, slam it!", sais Sven Schmidt, co-developer of "Slam it!".
To play "Slam it!", one player places 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 touching 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 now comes with four beautifully designed themes called "Christmas", "Roulette", "Psycho" and "Techno".
English, German, Italian and Japanese.
iPhone or iPod Touch 2.0 or later.
