[prMac.com] Brooklyn, New York – Jon Stokes is proud to announce the release of his Indie party game Whiskers, for iPad. Whiskers is a 2 to 4 player family friendly game, where players collect size instead of points. Players grow bigger by collecting kitty chow and then use one of four unique powerups to steal size from their friends.
Two gameplay modes provide plenty of variety. Normal mode is similar to the classic game of Snake, but instead of getting longer, the player gets bigger and also slower. Controls are very tight in normal mode. Alternatively, Bumper Cats mode feels more like bumper cars, where players have less control and are more likely to get clumped together while trying to edge each other out to get to the nearest powerup. More gameplay modes will be added in future updates.
Players can outfit their kitten with one of fifty mustaches before entering battle. Just swipe to select a mustache. A delightful ragtime soundtrack from composer Scott Joplin sets the stage for exciting and unpredictable physics based gameplay.
A new community-designed powerup will be created each month. Players can tweet powerup suggestions with the hashtag #whiskerspowerup. The suggestion with the most retweets by the end of the month will be created by Jon. Then, if the designer so chooses, she can test the powerup via Testflight and give feedback before its officially added to Whiskers.
Whiskers is available today for the iPad in all regions for USD $1.99, with no pesky In-App Purchases.
