Cincinnati Bengals WR Chad Ochocinco Blows Up iTunes Charts with ‘Mad Chad’ Mobile Game

Rock Software knows a thing or two about making addictive mobile games. After all, their “Chad Ochocinco Official App,” one of the first apps created for a professional athlete, immediately went #1 in iTunes and remains at the top of the charts for most downloaded apps.

Now the Rock Software team has delivered another chart topper – “Mad Chad ,” a game designed for the iPhone and iPod Touch that features 20 levels set around the world. Explore the beautiful beaches of Miami to the top of the Great Wall of China in pursuit of Chad’s pigeon. Integrated through social media, Twitter and Facebook users have the ability to tweet and post messages directly from the game’s interface as they advance each level.

“Mad Chad ” launched Thursday and sped to the top (#4) of Apple’s App Store charts in less than 24 hours. “We believe the rankings are reflective of our strength and range not only in the mobile app (or gaming) arena but in social media as well. We couldn’t be more pleased with the overwhelming support the game has received through social networks the past few days.”

“Now when you are bored, you can not only follow my life on Twitter, but you can also play my game,” says Ochocinco. “Since I am the interesting one, I’m going to make sure you’ve always got something to do.”
