iPhone and iPod touch Players Transport to a Gothic World for a Fully Immersive Game Experience and Engage in ‘Alchemy Creation’, a Game within a Game
PALO ALTO, Calif., July 6 /PRNewswire/ — SGN, the largest social mobile game developer, today announced the availability of its Vampires vs. Werewolves game on the App Store. Vampires vs. Werewolves is a first-of-its kind, story-driven game for iPhone and iPod touch featuring Facebook Connect, live synchronous game play and the ability to locate other players in your vicinity through the iPhone’s geo-location capability.
“We continue to evolve and advance the user experience on the iPhone OS platform with original, engaging and creative games,” said SGN CEO Shervin Pishevar. “Our goal is to create the most, innovative, entertaining games possible while integrating the highly social aspects of gaming into the mobile world. With the new capabilities in iPhone OS 3.0, such as in-app commerce, our games will continue to get better, more strategic and offer new features to gamers.”
Should they choose to enter this dark labyrinthine world, users have the power to declare allegiance to a mystical creature of the night – a werewolf or vampire. Under the cloak of night, werewolves and vampires with specialized and finely honed survival skills, such as ‘vicious fangs’ and ‘blasting howls’, explore this moonlit world, embark on dark quests alone or with a team in real-time, overcome supernatural dangers and fight fearsome creatures for superiority and blood to rule the magical underworld. This highly inventive game leverages the iPhone’s geo-location feature so players can invite other users in their area to join their clan.
Vampires vs. Werewolves also features a game within a game, ‘Alchemy Creation’, allowing any player to arm themselves with threatening powers, increase their vampire fangs strength to ‘vicious fangs’ or their werewolf’s howl decibel to a ‘blasting howl’ and wreak havoc among enemies. Users can visit the auction house for help and guidance in their journeys as well as pick up rare abilities that will get them ahead in the game.
The game will be offered in a free, ‘lite’ version as well as a premium version for $0.99 from Apple’s App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore/
