[prMac.com] Farmers Branch, Texas – Magnin & Associates has updated its popular Zamboni Challenge game. Zamboni Challenge lets you see what it’s like to drive the Zamboni(R) ice resurfacer. Lean and turn your iPhone in landscape to speed up, slow down, and steer. Drive carefully to clean the ice as efficiently as possible. Get as close to the boards as you can without hitting them. Don’t lift the cleaner prematurely and leave snow piles. Don’t over water the ice by driving over the same areas too many times.
Start out on an early morning practice rink and work your way up through five arenas with increasing difficulty. The final challenge is cleaning the ice between periods of a professional hockey game with another Zamboni machine running in tandem.
The game was produced by Ed Magnin, who also was lead programmer, with graphics by Joe Eisma, and sound effects by Rich Douglas. The music was created and performed by The Zambonis.
According to Ed Magnin, “Almost everyone that ever set foot in an ice rink wished they could drive the Zamboni(R) ice resurfacer. Here’s your chance!” Other versions are available for Android, Apple TV, Windows PC and Xbox. The iOS version contains some additional features, including an hourly reminder feature for the Apple Watch.
