Guess the Character

wpid23640-media_1340225469118.png

JanduSoft today is pleased to announce Guess the Character 2.0 available for iPhone or iPad, their game of logic and observation created especially for fathers to play with their children. Based on the famous "Guess Who?" board game, Guess the Character challenges 1 or 2 players to determine which one of 24 different cartoon character faces is the opponent’s (in the single player game, the computer or mobile device acts as the player’s opponent). This is done by process of elimination, choosing something to ask from a list of yes-or-no questions, such as, "Do you wear eyeglasses?" After each question is answered, characters are eliminated from the board, and the first player to correctly guess the opponent’s character wins.

The gameboard consists of a 6 x 4 grid of tiles, each picturing a cartoon character face. At the start of each game, the player can choose to be any of the 24 characters. Playing by turns, each player has an opportunity to ask 1 of 5 questions from a list presented at the start of their turn. Having chosen their question, the game confirms the player’s selection by re-stating the question in a dialog box with two buttons: Ask or Cancel. Once the player decides to ask the question, the game responds immediately with a red "X" flashing over the face of each character eliminated as a result of the new information contained in the answer. Accompanying sound effects add drama to the gameplay, as players must touch each blinking red "X" to officially eliminate that character.

Click – Metronome

wpid23642-media_1340225614668.png

Gig Bag Apps, makers of popular drum reference app theDrumDictionary, are pleased today to announce the release of Click, a new metronome app for iOS. Click provides flexible features such as a wide tempo range, a large selection of time signatures, plus many other audio and visual options, all while maintaining an emphasis on clear visualization. A metronome has one job: to help a musician practice and play in time, but this can be accomplished in many different ways. Click takes advantage of the flexibility of a digital interface to provide a variety of metronome styles together in one app.

Click stands apart from other iPhone metronomes as the first to offer many visualization options in one app: a large beat counting display or fullscreen flash, along with the more traditional "pendulum" look, with and without beat counting. Once set to the desired tempo and time signature, Click can enter into a fullscreen mode, making it easily visible from a music stand or even from across the stage for the whole band to play along with. "Click focuses on providing an easy-to-use experience that can be quickly setup and then gets out of the way, so musicians can focus on what’s important: making great music," said Gig Bag Apps founder, Ryan Dillon.
