[prMac.com] Bristol, UK - Code Redman announces today the availability of Thumbat, their second major release exclusively on the iPhone and iPod touch. Thumbat is an advanced bat and ball game with an industrial theme.
In Thumbat the player takes control of two recycling trash cans, the bats, and tries to keep the steel air purifier, the sky ball, in the air. Various "poison" particles in the air have an effect on the ball as it sweeps through, requiring the player to react quickly. The player has one sky ball and only one chance. The sky darkens, the game quickens and the effects get more pronounced as time passes. The players task is to last as long as possible.
"We are very pleased with Thumbat, a few friends and volunteers helped test the game in various stages of development." said Chris Redman, founder of Code Redman. "I loved seeing a smile on their face as the game progressed. You know the game is ready when they keep going back."
After 23 years of working on internal PC based business systems in the financial industry, Chris has recently switched to the Apple platform and is forging ahead independently. "It's a risk but an exciting opportunity in a world-wide market." Chris said.
Thumbat is now available world-wide in the Apple App Store and via iTunes for $1.99 in the U.S. and is priced accordingly in other regions.
