[prMac.com] Rolla, Missouri - IDC Projects released an ad-free version of their mobile App, Circle of Death. The original app is a free version with ads. The newly released ad-free version initially sold for $2.99, will now be available for free for a limited time. On June 24, 2011, the same version of the game will become available through FreeAppADay for a limited time. Circle of Death is traditionally a drinking game played by college students. IDC Projects took the popularity of the game and created an App that allows the user to play without a deck of cards.
"It was decided to release an ad-free version of the game because we understood the the ads could be distracting and cause the users to get sidetracked from the game" says IDC Projects Chief Executive Officer, Michael Orlando. "Our hope is that the ad-free version will promote longer gameplay and interest in the App itself."
During gameplay, the user can decide if they want the game to keep a tally of how many drinks per player, or if they want the deck of cards to be customized. The App supports up to 10 players per game when the Tally System is used. If the Tally System is selected, all the names and sexes of the participating players can be entered. This allows the game to automatically give drinks to players when the appropriate card is pulled. For example, some cards require only a particular sex to drink.
"The Tally System is really cool because it keeps track of whose turn it is, how many drinks each person has had throughout the game, and allows the user to see the current stats including who's winning" says Orlando.
Throughout the game, drinks can be manually added when someone breaks a rule, is last to place thumb on table, etc. Once the game is complete, the winner can post the game results with a congratulatory picture on their Facebook Wall.
If the users wish to play freely, they can turn off the Tally System and play with a standard 52 card deck. This allows the user to create their own game rules. The App is designed to be user friendly and has a pleasing aesthetic with stunning retina display capable graphics.
You must at least 17 years old to download this App. IDC Projects does not condone underage drinking and encourages those of legal drinking age to drink responsibly.
