[prMac.com] Pune, India - Rolocule Games, an independent game development studio, announced today that Super Badminton 2010 is now available for the iPhone and iPod touch on the Apple App Store. Super Badminton 2010 also marks the debut of Rolocule's sports games franchise - Super.
In spite of being one of the most popular sports in the world, badminton has not received much attention from the video game industry because of the complexity involved in the physics of a shuttlecock and the uniqueness of badminton shots. The shuttlecock used in badminton make the sport unique when compared to other racquet sports like tennis, squash, table tennis - which all use balls.
Developed using Rolocule's proprietary game engine, Super Badminton 2010 provides a realistic badminton experience on iPhone/iPod touch with hyper-real shuttlecock physics, HD quality graphics and real badminton shots animations.
"Not only are we excited about the debut of our racquet sports games franchise Super, but we are also thrilled to bring Badminton as a game on the App Store" said Rohit Gupta, CEO of Rolocule Games. "The game pushed us to surpass the quality boundaries of sports games and showcase the visual brilliance of the iPhone platform."
Super Badminton 2010 uses both touch and tilt controls to hit various badminton shots. Featuring eight badminton players - each with unique characteristics - and five different badminton court environments, the game can be played in any of three modes - Quick Play, Exhibition and Tournaments. The Exhibition mode offers customization of a badminton match with selection of player, court type and five difficulty levels among other choices available. The Tournament mode features three tournaments with balanced difficulty similar to real badminton tournaments. The player aims to become the ultimate badminton professional by winning as many trophies and displaying them in the trophy cabinet.
