[prMac.com] Stoke-on-Trent, United Kingdom – Lightwood Games has announced Head Hunter Challenge, its latest game is now available, and coming to an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch near you. Or, ideally, to many of them all at once.
Head Hunter Challenge is the latest game to be built around Lightwood’s multi-screen gaming technology, which allows up to 16 devices to be connected via Bluetooth in order to create a single, enlarged playing surface. Players then compete in teams, often intertwining limbs and digits in order to reach the far corners of the game.
It’s a unique concept: a real world social gaming experience where you literally face your opponents as you battle for territory – and to win the game!
Devices can be connected in almost any arrangement with the largest configuration – 4 x 4 iPads – making a multitouch game that’s about the size of a 48-inch television. Connecting in a straight line, it’s possible to create more than 3 metres of playing surface!
Head Hunter Challenge is the logical follow-up to Plasma Party, which was released on the App Store earlier in the year after receiving praise at the GameHack event where the app was first created. Lightwood won two awards at the event for their first foray into multi-screen gaming, “Most Innovative Idea” and “Best Use of Mobile”, and pledged to keep developing the technology.
In Head Hunter Challenge, players attempt to help Agent Dan McFox, a professional head hunter who, coincidentally, actually is a fox, round up all the suspects he’s looking for. Given a particular description, such as “with brown hair” or “wearing glasses”, the player has to pick out all the matching faces from a crowd of people.
For those that don’t always have friends nearby to play with, the app offers two other game modes: Solo and Challenge.
Solo mode is played against the clock, with sixty seconds to find as many suspects as you can. Players earn Game Center achievements and can see their high scores ranked in daily worldwide leaderboards.
Challenge mode is played in a turn-by-turn format against an online opponent – usually a Facebook friend. Each player tackles the same game to see who can amass the most points while looking for the same five sets of suspects.
Those whose friends do not have iPhones or iPads need not despair. There is a Facebook app that allows anyone to play the challenge mode through any web browser. An Android app is also expected to hit the app stores next week.
* iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
* Requires iOS 4.1 or later
* 18.2 MB
Pricing and Availability:
Head Hunter Challenge 1.01 is Free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Games category. The app is supported by in-game advertising, which can be removed for $1.99 (UK 1.49).

Next Game from Bolt Creative to Deliver Full-Fledged, New Take on Running Games
The Pygmies of Pocket God may be immortal islanders now but come this spring that will all change with the release of Bolt Creative’s next iOS game – Pocket God: The Runs. A new take on the auto-running game, this will be the latest entrant into the Pocket God universe since the launch of Pocket God: Journey to Uranus on iPad in December of 2010. In The Runs, players will find a refresh of the running game genre influenced by classic games like Super Mario Bros., Sonic the Hedgehog, and Donkey Kong Jungle Beat.
Once immortal, the Pygmies of Pocket God have angered the gods, who have stripped the islanders of the gift of never-ending life. Players must help the Pygmies dash and jump through level after level of fast-paced running and platforming to retrieve the shards of their god idol’s gem, the only thing that can restore their immortality. Pocket God: The Runswill present players with a fully fledged new game complete with multiple worlds, multiple levels, and a compelling story line.
“Over the past few years we have explored many different ways to annihilate those poor little islanders, many of the suggestions coming from our own community of devoted followers, and the original The Runs mini game was definitely one of the more entertaining ways to dispatch Pygmies, ” said Dave Castelnuovo, co-founder of Bolt Creative. “As anticipated, The Runs proved to be quite popular and we really felt that it deserved to become its own full featured game, we’re not releasing all the details on it yet but be assured that it’ll fit nicely within the Pocket God universe.
The Runs first appeared in Pocket God Episode 32 “Crack is Whack,” where players could create a crack in the island floor to send a Pygmy down to a hellish and lava-filled running mini game. Pocket God: The Runs will fully expand on this mini game in an all new Pygmy adventure.
Pocket God is one of the most popular and beloved franchises birthed on the iOS platform. With over 7 million total downloads since launching in early 2009, the game has consistently ranked as one of the top 25 paid iPhone apps for nearly three years running. The Pocket God comic series recently surpassed the 500,000 digital downloads milestone.
