[prMac.com] Tel Aviv, Israel - Double Duck, the coolest young game development studio from Tel Aviv, is launching Best Blackjack for iPhone and iPod touch, and the world of casino games will never be the same.
"We love the game of blackjack" says Odi Weinberger, CEO of Double Duck, "And we want to see it join the ranks of poker and slots as the big 3 casino games on mobile platforms. This amazing, tactical and fun game was overlooked for a long time, and now we're bringing it back!".
Best Blackjack takes the player through the ladder of a professional blackjack player, starting at small locations such as the local tavern and all the way to the most amazing casino in the world: The Prestige.
"The main focus of Best Blackjack is exploring the world. The player is driven by the unlocking of new locations, and we made a point of making that experience amazingly fun". While the game launches with 5 locations in the first version, more are going to unlock in the upcoming weeks. "As players, we are all about exploring the games we play. You wouldn't expect that from a casino game, but our players are begging for more locations, and we will have more amazing casinos lined up for them in the upcoming weeks".
When it comes to the control of the game, Best Blackjack was especially optimized for single hand play. "We realized from our tests people play a lot on their way to work, on the subway or bus. We optimized gameplay for a single hand to make sure people can still hold a pole while standing in the subway. Everything in the game interface is "a thumb away".
Double Duck is a young Israeli game development studio, only 6 month old, founded by 4 graduates of a local game design school.
