[prMac.com] New York, NY - Toughturtle LLC, a developer of innovative solutions for Apple mobile devices, today released Mobile Bingo, a new iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch App that will be a favorite for anyone who needs an activity to pass the time... especially on road trips.
"I remember playing bingo-style car games during long car trips when I was growing up, and Mobile Bingo is my way of continuing the tradition for the electronic/mobile age" , said Todd Barnes, Director of Development, Toughturtle LLC. "The results, in my opinion, have exceeded what I set out to do. I am really happy with the App and I hope that others like it as well."
Mobile Bingo brings the same fun and playability that children and parents have enjoyed for decades. The game comes with two premium game boards and the ability to purchase, through In-App Upgrades, seven more game boards that keep the fun going for hours!
"When the iPhone first came out, I wanted to make this App. But, I feared that the small screen would hinder it's playability. With the introduction of the iPad I now had the opportunity to bring the concept to a more manageable size", said Todd Barnes. "After the iPad version was complete, I realized that the size of the iPhone and iPod touch screen was actually perfect for the game boards. So I converted the App into a Universal binary for all Apple mobile devices to utilize."
As a Universal App, Mobile Bingo works on all Apple mobile devices. The App features two game boards. The Basic game board, which is packed full of bingo tiles of commonly seen items while on a road-trip such as cars, animals, scenery, signs, etc. And the Colors game board, which offers a wide range of color tiles that lets the player customize the gameplay with endless possibilities. Different colored cars? People with different colored clothes? The gameplay possibilities are virtually endless... and only limited to the player's imagination.
The iPad version includes a single player mode with a game board that is available in both portrait and landscape orientation, and the multi player mode which offers two side-by-side game boards for head-to-head bingo action in landscape orientation. The iPhone and iPod touch version includes a single player mode with a game board which is only available in portrait orientation.
Additionally, the App features In-App Purchases to extend the gameplay with seven additional game boards. Airlines, All Signs, Around Town, Food, Gasoline, Vehicles, and License Plates. The license plate game board features plate designs from all fifty states, but a specific region of the US can also be chosen in order to focus the gameplay to the region being traveled. The App is free on the Apple AppStore and is supported by one advertisement. However, any In-App Purchase will remove the advertisement from the App permanently.
* iPad: OS 4.0
* iPhone / iPod touch: OS 3.2
