Roman Backgammon

media_1334582026300.png

eoz games is pleased to announce Roman Backgammon 1.0, its new gaming title for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch at a two week introductory price of $2.99. Roman Backgammon is a simpler, ancient version of backgammon that is fun for adults and an excellent way to introduce children to the game. Roman Backgammon unearths the roots of the classic Backgammon game to deliver a unique experience with slightly different rules and a custom mosaic game board and dice design to take you back in time.

The game can be played in standard one or two player modes, or a player can select an opponent from anywhere in the world using Game Center. Three levels of difficulty ensure a broad range of play and iTunes integration even lets users select music from their own library. In Roman Backgammon, all stones begin off the board. Both players move on and off the board in the same direction. The board does not have the triangular points used in modern backgammon.

Roman Backgammon features a stunning ancient mosaic board with coordinated ebony and ivory dice and stones. Users can play against the computer (choose from three levels of play), ‘pass and play’ using their iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, or compete through Game Center, all while using iTunes integration to listen to their favorite music or playlist without exciting the game. Other features include a highlight option to show possible moves, two user friendly move options, automatic save and pause, an undo move function and an elegant dice roll.

Backgammon is the oldest known board game and is believed to have originated in Mesopotamia in the Persian Empire thousands of year ago. Egyptians, Sumerians, Romans and Persians may have played an ancient form of backgammon on wood or stone surfaces with dice made of bones, stones, wood or pottery. The Romans spread the game across Europe and this period was particularly important in the development of the game. Roman Backgammon is an ancient version of the game we know so well – now it can be played as the Romans did in the first century.

media_1334582119377.png

Lucky Fighter is a quick-to-learn, addictive, action packed casual game for iOS. The main character’s task is to face off against 100 lowlife bullies in a dramatic rock-scissors-paper duel that continually devolves to punches in the face. As an underdog against seemingly unbeatable odds, players will take on their customized character’s foes using skill and strategy. In-game special items provide a number of perks to set the player up for success, when used wisely.

Lucky Fighter is socially interactive in addition to being an upbeat action experience. Players can tweet and share their scores, and take advantage of Game Center integration to boast of their bully-beating skills. In addition, they can customize the main character with their own face in order to create a personalized hero, and take photos against different backgrounds featuring themselves as the star of the game.

Lucky Fighter relies on the traditional popularity of rock-paper-scissors to create a game that requires very little time to learn. But the game also integrates new challenges and entertaining features – like intimidating bosses and a frenzied mad-attack – to keep Lucky Fighter fresh and unique. The game’s edgy comic book-style character design and stylish animation complement its cutting edge attitude. Lucky Fighter is available now in the iTunes App Store for free which is nothing to pay to make 100 bullies face the music.

CurfewAlert

media_1334583497541.png

Distal Industries, LLC today is please to announce the release of its latest iPhone application, CurfewAlert. The app is a smart alarm that lets teenagers know when to leave to make it home on time for curfew. Users enter their home address and curfew time. The app automatically determines how long it will take to drive home from wherever they are fires an alarm notifying them when its time to leave.

"I can’t tell you how many times I got in trouble for coming home late when I was young simply because I was too busy having fun. An app like this would’ve made my life a lot easier," said David Colvin, founder of Distal Industries.

One of the most powerful features of CurfewAlert is its integration with the iPhone’s location services. The app continually calculates the driving distance from the user’s current location to their home address. And when the user travels to a new location, the app automatically recalculates the drive time and adjusts the alarm.

To extend iPhone battery life, CurfewAlert runs in the background allowing users to use other applications simultaneously. "The idea was to create a curfew app that you could set and forget when you went out. That way you can be free to have fun with your friends without having to worry about when its time to leave," explained Colvin.

In addition to setting a curfew alert, the app also lets users set a reminder up to 60 minutes before its time to go. "This gives users a little extra time to say goodbye to friends, walk to their car, etc.," explained Colvin. The app also lets users save an unlimited number of favorite home locations and view driving directions.
