[prMac.com] Liversedge, United Kingdom – UKTV and GameDigits Ltd. have teamed up to create the most advanced auctioning game available to date. Players take on the role of a professional auction buyer, visiting storage auctions with the aim of finding hidden treasure and making virtual money. They must pit their wits against the characters from the TV show, who have their own personalities and bidding characteristics. If players hold their nerve and bid the right amount, they could walk away with a huge virtual profit!
For the first time ever, fans and friends can now play their favourite auctioning show on the App Store and Google Play anytime, anywhere.
While players progress, they unlock bigger and better auctions and higher quality items. As players succeed, they also gain additional skills, which can be used at the auctions and have more opportunity to play strategically in order to bag a real bargain.
Not only are players aiming to make the biggest profit, they are trying to hunt down and collect every item the game has to offer. With a huge amount of items to collect, it’s up to the player to find them all. This includes very rare items that could be hidden from view or inside safes, requiring lock-picks to open.
Players can also play head to head with friends and strangers alike in the online multiplayer mode, taking the game to a whole new level. It also features leaderboards, achievements and allows players to connect with Facebook to use their profile within the game.
As with the hit TV series Storage Hunters UK on Dave, the game is hosted by Sean Kelly and features all the favourite characters from the show, including their iconic bidding styles and unique calls. Since launching in June in conjunction with the new series of Storage Hunters UK, it has already reached No.1 on the App Store and No.1 in ‘Top Selling New Apps’ on Google Play.
