[prMac.com] Wellington, New Zealand - Five Independent developers unleash a pioneering new concept for iPhone gaming. The 5 Fingers Games Bundle takes five of the most popular, and best selling iPhone games, and combines them into one great package. 5 developers, 5 games, 5 bucks.
This is the first games bundle for the iPhone, but the real story here is the way in which it came about. In an increasingly competitive market, five different development teams have taken a break from fighting for a spot in the App Store Top 100 to create something wonderful. Independently connected through a shared admiration and enthusiasm for each other's work, they have joined forces and worked together to deliver a bundle brimming with quality.
Often for a games bundle, a publisher pulls together one or two good titles and pads them out with some weaker games, but this the best selling game from each of five developers. There's a game for everyone in the 5 Fingers Games Bundle. Each one is a gem in it's own right, with production values, quality, and heart.
* Chopper - Previously a #1 game on the App Store
* Up There - The most emotive game on the store
* Sneezies - An adorable puzzle game for all ages
* BurnBall - Addicting and high energy arcade action
* BlackBeards Assault - Puzzle adventure on the High Seas
The bundle includes only the latest full versions of each game. They are all neatly wrapped up in a single application, a simple launch pad is presented on startup, and it's quick and easy to jump into any of the five games. So as an added bonus for the hardcore iPhone gamer who has hit that 148 apps limit, the bundle only takes up one precious slot on the iPhone dashboard.
The participating developers are: Majic Jungle Software - Chopper, Veiled Games - Up There, Antair Games - Sneezies, IMS - BurnBall, and Warhorse Games - Blackbeard's Assault. The 5 Fingers Games Bundle is published by Majic Jungle Software.
Pricing and Availability:
Together these games have a value of over $10.00, with each being at least $1.99. The bundle is available for just $4.99 (USD), a discount of 50% or more off each game. The 5 Fingers Games Bundle is available for sale on the iPhone App Store from the 9th March 2009.
